In true gap-year style I'm discovering new things about myself and the world around me. As much as my framework has shifted it has also stayed much the same, both intentionally and unintentionally. At the core things have remained the same but just become clearer and it's often without realisation that I catch myself saying and doing things that prove (more to myself) what I'm about.
So with this I have claimed my own philosophy: "for the experience" is always a good reason to do anything.
Of course this is completely subjective but whoever you are, whatever you're like it's bound to get you out of your comfort zone!
