My Outlook on Life - Why I work so hard

Hey guys,

 My life is finally getting some structure again. As soon as I finished with my uni work I rested for 2 days and then went straight back to blogging and vlogging. This provoked questions among my friends and readers. Why am I always up to something? Am I a workaholic? Do I like staying busy? Does it not affect my grades?

This post is dedicated to my readers Gayu and Rosshani who had asked me these questions a while ago. Their questions were:
Gayu: What/who made you want to be in this place you are right now? What's your motivation?
Rosshani: What do your friends/family think about you having a blog?

I started blogging at a really young age I reckon I was 11 years old when I first started. What my motivation was? To this day I don't think it is anyone specific who made me want to start blogging. I always had a drive within me to do something in my spare time. Whenever we had school holidays I would get bored really quickly, both my parents were always busy at work providing for the family and being at home doing nothing can get repetitive and boring. That is when I started browsing on the internet. At that time I watched shows like iCarly and Zoey 101 and these shows always motivated me to do something in my time like have a youtube channel, make videos, sing - I even attempted to set up my own radio station once!! I did it for a few weeks but nobody really listened in to the channel ahah. I learned a lot though and I always managed to download viruses! I broke so many of our computers while being curious.

What's your motivation?

My motivation are the goals I have set myself. Don't get me wrong I don't have a specific aim in life but I know what I want to be known for. For me life is not just about "being alive", when I die I want to be known for something I have achieved as a human. I don't want to be just here and then leave. In the time I have I want to do as much as I can - travel the world, explore cultures, get to know people, have a family, look after my parents, be successful and leave a mark in the world. This means I will take ANY opportunity that comes my way, if you don't try then you're missing out on an experience you could've made in your lifetime.

My definition of success?
Everyone's definition of success is different and everyone has the right to do so. I don't want to live to complete my degree get a good job and have a family. I know in fact if that is all I did I would be disappointed with myself.  I am doing a degree right now but I am doing so many other things on the side. If these things affect me in a negative way, my grades suffer I would know and try to save myself from failing. However, I wouldn't cut things out of my life just to make sure I get 90% in my tests. I am not living to complete tests and get satisfaction from those grades. I live to become a well rounded person in all aspects not just academically.

 The things I have as hobbies and are things that make me who I am. The things that make me stand out, the things that shape me as a person and prepare me for the future.
If I wasn't curious enough to explore the internet and set up a blog 10 years ago, I wouldn't be here today writing this post right now.

What my family thinks about me blogging? The reason I am the way I am is my mum. She is very supportive with whatever I do. She has taught me a great set of values and morals without me even realising. To my family me blogging is nothing special, it's just a hobby, something I do when I'm not studying.

What my friends think? I don't get treated any differently by them. They are very supportive and help me, give me tips but they know me for me not because I am a girl who writes a blog and makes youtube videos.

Hope this gives you guys an insight to my brain but as you can see I am not philosophical but I have thought about life very deeply.
