I'm the first member in my immediate family to possess a passport. I got it back in 2009 when the plan was to go to Italy. Those plans got blown apart, so the little book with a bad picture of my face is still awaiting adventure.
I think it's time that I had my passport cherry 'popped'... and it looks set to happen next year.
I'm not one that likes to make too many plans - because if my past has taught me anything, it's that nothing ever really goes to plan.
But, if the last little while has taught me anything - it's that you're pretty much only ever either moving forward or going backwards, because in life there is no standing still.
In making plans, however small they might be, I declare to the world 'I am not waiting for anyone or anything anymore'.
