A warm hello to our readers!
With February being well and truly over in the blink of an eye, student life has rolled in full force and has hit us like a brick wall. However, I was lucky enough to have a teensy little weekend away last month with a tight group of friends up in the beautiful district of Murrindindi, for a relaxing camping trip where we all experienced being offline for the first time in years.
Now we all know how awesome it is to take some time off and go away for a bit, leaving behind your responsibilities, stress and drama that comes with everyday life. Now this was pretty much your cliché camping road-trip which happened to be sooo much easier than flying to gosh knows where and going through the time-consuming processes of checking in and making sure you’re at the right terminal blah blah, which for a bunch of twenty somethings that do nothing but work and study, we are more than happy to avoid. And no, we don’t’ spend our time and money on smashed avo on toast – sorry to disappoint you boomers out there.
Camping out with good mates is probably one of the most underrated things you can do, and nowadays maybe even a little daunting for those who must have reception 24/7 to check those 4am tweets. But in all honesty, I’m happy to sit around a camp fire, burn dinner and talk to my close mates about real life things that rarely get posted onto their socials and really unwind from the stress and anxiety dumped onto us from the online communities.
Life keeps moving FAST, and its almost impossible to keep up with everyone and everything so we need to make sure that we take a time out, have a break and have a Kit Kat with those we know we can have a good time and actually connect with in person. Make sure you take the time for those most important in your life and take no one for granted.
