A YEAR BY GOOD TIMES + NEW GOALS


HAPPY NEW YEAR

I find that it's really special to look back and pin-point everything good that happened to you in the past year. It's no doubt that 2015 was the toughest and most life changing year so far but, beside the bad things, there was some amazing experiences that I shall remember.

JANUARY - My friends and I took a two night trip away to Edinburgh. It was so much fun. Blog Post

FEBRUARY - I bought my prom dress and bought the shoes to go with it, both in one day.  I began a series on my blog called Catchup Sessions. We got our whole year end-of-school pictures and we were all allowed to take pictures with each other afterwards - at that point reality kicked in that we were leaving after a long 5 years. 

MARCH - Birthday month - yey! Went to see McBusted for the 2nd time and met them which was surreal. Got the train to Manchester with my friends to meet David Leviathan at Waterstones. 

APRIL - Finished all of my Textiles coursework which was an achievement because it was such a big weight off my shoulders. 

MAY - Exams began. I began to add finishing touches to all of my art coursework. I found a fondness for the beach. Added three baby fish to the garden pond. After many years, I was told I was allowed to get a kitten.

JUNE - I met the most adorable kitten in the world and we bought her. I finished exams then the kitten came home with us: April joined the family. My friends and I made our leavers shirts. I graduated from school and our last day was celebrated by a balloon release. We then enjoyed a great, hot night at Prom.

JULY - My longest summer holidays were in full throttle including parties, food and fun. 

AUGUST - The summer continued and time whizzed past. Got my exam results and was pleased. Took a trip down to London.

SEPTEMBER - I started college. Finally dyed my hair blonde. 

OCTOBER - Went to see Rhodes in Manchester and met him - such an amazing highlight. Got my braces off which was such a relief. 

NOVEMBER - Went back to school for an Achievements Assembly and was over the moon when I won the English Literature award. 

DECEMBER - I had a wonderful Christmas with all of the family.

I've also collected a short series of goals to document and evaluate at the end of 2016:

1. Learn to drive
2. Get a Car
3. Get a (volunteering) job
4. Go to Iceland
5. Visit Scotland
6. Overcome one fear
7. Go to a concert
8. Read minimum 12 books
9. Use a planner and stick with it
10. Use my 'One Line A Day' Book every day
11. Reach 480 blog followers
12. Host a blog giveaway
13. Go on a walk every month
14. Get rid of clothes that I don't wear
15. Post at least 30 blog posts


What were your best experiences from 2015?

  2. Definitely agree with 14, I'm such a hoarder but I think if I got rid of lots of stuff I didn't need I would feel so much better!

  3. In 2016, I would also want to go to a concert of my favorite band, something like that is happening this March but too bad I'm too broke right now. Glad you the year with a fun Christmas with the family, I hope this year would be a bliss. Happy New Year! :)
