So it's time for another year! I don't know about you but this one has absolutely flown over for me. It doesn't feel like it's been 12 months at all. I started this blog back in March and I am so glad I did. I needed something to keep up with my writing skills and I also needed something to keep me from being bored in between studying for my degree. I feel like I have learned a lot especially with reading other blogs and their recommendations etc.
I haven't had the best year, in fact it has been a real horrible rollercoaster for me and I know there have been some incredibly sad tragedies that have occurred worldwide too.. but I can happily say there have also been some fantastic times this year that I can look back on and think how lucky I am to have experienced such things. So I wanted to say goodbye to 2014 by showing you all just a few of my highlights:
Leeds with two of my best friends in March (1st picture) and again in September (2nd picture). My friend lives in Leeds while she studies her degree so I went up there with her sister and each time we've had a right laugh and created some fantastic memories that I'll cherish forever. I hope to visit again sometime next year!
After the first time I went to Leeds, I also visited my other best friend who lived in Spain and Portugal for almost a year for her degree. I went in Easter for an entire week when she lived in Porto and my brother joined us halfway through the week and I can't honestly tell you another time when I've felt that happy.
The best week of my life with the best people.
There have been some special occasions; birthdays, Halloween, and just plain old good nights out with old friends..
(Had to get one cute picture of me and my mum!)
Not only that, I got to spend this year with some new friends too!
I also got to eat and drink some wonderful things too! Plenty of alcohol, of course..
I also won a pub quiz for the first time in my entire life and I was so proud of me and my friends that I just have to include it in this post, hahaha!
What was the prize I hear you ask?
A crate of beer, of course!
I also saw amazing comedians, bands, plays, films and read some of the best books this year.
Here are a few of my favourites:
Books - The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green, You're The One That I Want by Giovanna Fletcher.
Films - The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, The Lego Movie, The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Theatre - The Lion King, The Full Monty, West Side Story.
Writing this post makes me feel nostalgic and actually glad of the things and places I've done, seen and been to. I'm hoping 2015 will be even better and I hope it won't be as much of a roller coaster. I would love to hear some of your own highlights and what you thought of this year as a whole.
I am thankful to have started this blog and grateful to those that follow me. I hope you all celebrate the good times and bring the new year in well whatever your plans are.
Roll on 2015!
As always, thankyou for reading.
