First ever blog post! Hello

I’ve been contemplating writing a blog, more specifically a daily blog for quite a while and it appears that I’ve finally started. I’m using this platform as a space where I can de-clutter my thoughts and document my success and my failures. It’s been a pretty daunting task just starting but now that I’ve officially I’m going to push myself and consistently upload content.

This is the space where I will be documenting my life, more for me than anyone else, putting my ideas and experiences onto the proverbial pen and paper. I’m not going to lie I’m pretty nervous and have no idea where to start, so I think I’ll start with a brief background story.

I’m Ali and I’m currently in my first year studying a Bcom majoring in economics. I turned twenty-one in Feb and I live in sunny South Africa, Cape Town to be more precise. I stay with my family because you know students are broke AF and I’m certainly not an exception. My life pretty much revolves around varsity, staying sane and my two dogs, I recently got diagnosed with Bipolar disorder with a side of Borderline personality disorder. So this space is really going to be about finding my feet in every sense of the phrase from my physical journey, preparing for the Robben Island swim to the emotional one of finding stability socially, mentally and academically.

I understand this is a little all over the show but stay with me I’ll get the hang of it. I now cordially Invite you to join me on this adventure some call life.
