Ending a chapter in your incredible journey

Hi Everyone,

Kimmie here. It’s been a while since I’ve last blogged. I guess life and uni has gotten in the way. I start my new job on Friday.  Im so excited.

For the last couple of months I’ve been trying not to stress about the impending doom that is finishing off my degree. A lot of students face this feeling throughout their life, you’ll face it at the end of primary school, high school even when your changing jobs.

It can be very scary. You don’t know where you will be. Well that’s the future, we don’t know where we will be, that is what makes the future so exciting, just enjoy the ride.

Many people have asked me what my plans are and I’ve told them my 20 year plan. But the thing is that even though I have a plan for my future doesn’t mean I have every detail mapped out which scares the living daylights out of me.

 

I guess the point of me writing this blog is because I’ve seen friends and family go through this self doubt and I haven’t been able to reassure them that everything will be ok because I haven’t gone through it myself. Well if your reading this and your scared bonkers where your future will lead you just relax, take every opportunity as it comes to you. I always say that we are all on a highway and there are so many turn offs, you may go down a turn off road and realise it wasn’t the best turn but you can always find yourself back on that highway. The highway is I guess a metaphor to your main goal in life. It could be a career goal or a personal goal, you will always find yourself back on the right path even if you make a couple of wrong turns.

Well I hope this has helped whoever is reading this.

I’ve never been outside of Australia, so i’m really excited for my first overseas trip. I was planning to go to America but i decided not to, you can guess why.

So my top 10 places i’d love to travel to are:

 

  1. Vancouver, Canada.

I choose Vancouver because alot of my favourite movies and tv shows are filmed there. It’s always cold in Canada and I LOVE THE COLD WEATHER…

 

2. Toronto, Canada

Again another Canadian city. Beautiful city from what i’ve seen online.

 

3. New York, United States of America

I will eventually move to this lovely state. Home of Broadway. I love me some broadway but also it has such a rich historical scene aswell.

 

4. Los Angeles, United States of America

I’ve only had dreams of living here. Celebrity central. The houses are unreal in LA aswell as the beaches. Another city with historical value.

Everyone has mentors

Hi everyone, Kimmie here.

So today’s blog is on my mentors. I wouldn’t be the person i am today without the constant support and advice from my mentors. My first mentor was Lauren who i met the South Australian Youth Parliament. This was when my journey began. Youth Parliament brought me out of my shell and helped me become the extraordinary person i am now.

 

Today i don’t have alot of mentors but there are so many people i do ask advice for. Especially at university. I am so grateful to have these remarkable individuals in my life to help guide me down the right path, it is so easy to shift into another direction.

Yes your family can be mentors to you but sometimes it’s good to get advice away from that area, someone with fresh eyes who can see what your missing. Someone to help you see the bigger picture.

 

Until next time

My First…Year at University

Hi my lovely readers.

Kimmie here. So today’s blog is on MY FIRST YEAR AT UNIVERSITY.

So i am originally from South Australia. So i took the courage to move to Melbourne and follow my dream which is to own my record label. The first university i went to was JMC Academy and studied a Bachelor of Entertainment Business Management. Financially it wasn’t for me. So i applied to study a Diploma of Business (Public Relations) at RMIT University.

To be honest i had no idea what i was getting myself into. I had just moved into my apartment and i wasn’t really prepared for what lied ahead. I was nervous as hell but i found my place. The Ngarara Willim Centre helped me find my place, i met many people who inspired me to go that extra distance.

6 months after starting at RMIT i applied for the Bachelor Of Communication (Public Relations). I was so nervous for that too, because it’s such a hard course to get into. So i consulted a lecturer who i thought i had great rapport with. I told them i wanted to go do the bachelor and they told me because i had only been doing public relations for 6 months, i wouldn’t get in. I was so shocked that a lecturer would say that, they didn’t discourage me to apply but for them think i wouldn’t get in. haha!, i showed them. I did the interview and because it was a group interview, the students i talked to even said i should do the advanced diploma and wait. I don’t think so.

When people don’t believe i can do something, there’s something inside me that has to prove them wrong and then laugh in their face.

That pretty much was my first year of uni. The following year i started the first club at RMIT for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students but that story is for another time.

If anyone tells you, you can’t do something, prove them wrong. That feeling you get when you’ve done something they can’t believe you could do is so rewarding. No, Never and Can’t is not in my vocab. I owe my success to those 3 words.

Thank you for reading and don’t forget to follow me on social media.

My Last Concert Experience

Hi Y’all, Kimmie here.

hmmm my last concert experience. That would be DNCE.

I had the time of my life.

So i entered a competition through the hot hits. (thank you Optus). It was a small crowd of 50 people. I got to bring a plus one. I brought my friend Ruby with me. When i told her she was so excited.

Seeing DNCE was a dream come true. The main reason was because of Joe Jonas.

So i’ve been living on my own since i was 15. For 6 months i was really struggling being on my own, The Jonas Brothers helped me get through it. I didn’t have someone i could lean on then. Yeah i had my friends and they helped me get through but they couldn’t be there all the time. There’s something about music that can take you to another place, listening to the Jonas Brothers was my happy place when i needed to escape the real world.

I always vowed i would meet the Jonas Brothers and thank them for helping me get through those dark times when no one else was around. So seeing DNCE was my first step.

I didn’t get to meet Joe but seeing right in front of my face does the trick.

Being alone is not very fun. But there is always someone out there who is going through worse. For me the Jonas Brothers got me through alot of dark and lonely times.

I know writing all this deep and personal stuff in a blog may be a little public but i hope my words and experiences will reach someone that is struggling and i hope my story helps you. You are never alone…

 

Here a few pics i took..

 

My First…Plane Ride

Hi Y’all,

Kimmie here. So todays blog is on well my first plane ride.

I was 17 years old. I was a national finalist for Girlfriend Of The Year 2011. I was the only Aboriginal woman to get to the finals. So it was a major honour for me. I had to go to a photoshoot and do an interview in Sydney. So they paid to fly me over for the day. Since everything was paid for i took the opportunity to stay a day or two and enjoy the sights while i had the chance and had to go back to reality.

Girlfriend of the year is a nationwide competition run by Girlfriend Magazine which is a worldwide distributed magazine. This competition aims to find a young woman who is making a difference in their community. Since a young age i have always wanted to help people. My dream was and is still to build a community centre crossed with accommodation for young people who just need a little push in the right direction. This dream got a spot in the final 6 for the competition.

I was scared out of my mind, i had never flown before. I was flying by myself. I was very lucky because a man next me helped me get through the flight. My technique is to control my breathing as if i’m in labour. weird i know, but it works every.single.time.

Your probably wondering what happened with the competition. I didn’t win. I guess my dream was too big to vote for, instead a young girl who wanted to be chef and go to the best cooking school won. I wonder where she is now.

 

I have so many dreams. I guess the continuous factor in all of them is that they will impact someones life. They say do what you love. What i love the most in this world aside from my family and friends is knowing that someone who is less fortunate than i and hear that i changed their life for the better, that is so rewarding. As mentioned before i hope my blogs somehow help you, whoever may be reading this, i hope this blog shows that yes life is hard, unbearable sometimes but take one day at a time. The future is not written yet, i may have a 20 year plan but i don’t know what will happen in 20 years, everything i have planned could change. The future is unpredictable.

 

 

Predict The Future

Hello fellow readers.

To determine what i will be blogging about. I have put a range of topics in a hat. I will draw out a topic and write.

This weeks topic is…. PREDICT THE FUTURE!!

So it’s pretty self explanatory. I am no god or psychic. But i hope one day these things could happen. So let’s set the time, let’s say 10 years.

10 years from now i will own my own client management business, managing artists in music, art and sport. I will be located in Sydney or New York. I’m dating someone in the entertainment industry. They would be in the business world of the entertainment industry or an actor. Im really into Dylan O’Brien. I know the chances of me dating someone like Dylan O’Brien is highly unlikely but they said the same thing about me finishing high school.

As for the world, i would predict world peace. Black and white people to be at peace with one another. Climate Change to be on it’s way to be fixed. For our earth to be healthy and safe.

A lot can happen in 10 years.I know my prediction is a little bit out there but it’s what i want for our earth and what i hope for my world.

What do you hope for, what do you want for the future. Tell me. comment below.

nothing is ever set in stone. we have the power to change the future. so let’s start today!!!.
