 "I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers" - Anne of Green Gables

Guys! Hello! It's October, and I haven't blogged in a while. The last few weeks have been pretty busy with work, social events and a little uni work (emphasis on little), but most importantly, I achieved my main goal of 2016 - OBTAINING MY DRIVER'S LICENSE! I can now drive by myself! The test was last Tuesday and although I was incredibly nervous, I followed the advice of basically everyone around me and "remained calm"... passing with flying colours. I'm really proud of myself for getting organised, saving up for the lessons and sticking with it, despite how frustrating learning to drive has been (especially in the city) over the last few months. Achieving this goal prompted me to look back on my 2016 resolutions and see what other's I had paid attention to. This year has been very eventful for me; I crossed the QLD border for the first time... said "yes" to spontaneous adventures... ha, remember that one time I moved to Sydney for five days without properly thinking it through? Yeah me neither, must be someone else! :P 
Despite this year being one of the toughest for my mental health, it's also been very rewarding. I think I've really grown up and learnt a lot in a short amount of time. I'll be a 20 year old in four months! 

I'm home for the weekend again to spend some quality time with the fam before I go back to uni this week - something I'm somewhat looking forward to. I miss the routine of work and uni coming together and I think I need that to make me feel like I'm working towards a goal. Tess and I (well, mainly me) decided to take some photos too while I am here featuring this lovely blouse from Dotti. I bought it without even trying it on because I loved it so much - it has such an Anne Shirley vibe to it, don't you think? 
Hope you're all having an excellent weekend - and I'll be back soon!
