[DELAYED] The Next Chapter

Wow! Haven’t been on this thing for a while!! Found this piece that I was supposed to post in January. Don’t know why I never did! Here goes…

Union Buildings, Pretoria

The Next Chapter

I finally managed to get myself into a university after much struggle. Due to unforeseen events, I didn’t get into the university I initially wanted to go to, nevertheless I thank God for the door he has opened for me at the one that I’m gonna be attending this year.

It feels as though time has passed waaay too fast. Only yesterday (yesterday: 12 years ago) I was in primary school, learning to read and playing with my new (and old) friends. Then it was high school (Lord have mercy!). And now its university! Gosh, how time has flown…

Making the move is both scary and exciting. Bittersweet. I have never been afraid of leaving my comfort zone, but now I’m petrified! Not in a bad way though. The move from the village to the big city is the perfect head start to making my visions *side eyes Raven* come true. I have sooo much that I want to do and the Big City is the perfect location to make these “visions” a reality.

As scary as it is, I’m closing a chapter and starting my next chapter. Enjoy the read with me…

P.S. There are quite a lot of country bumpkins in the big city so I’m not alone

P.P.S. Luckily I don’t look like a country bumpkin. Some of the peeps I saw at varsity have VILLAGE written on their faces *hides*

P.P.P.S. I had to take a taxi home from varsity and it was not bad at all.


Updated: I HATE TAXI’S!!
