Thoughts on 2015 and Goals for 2016!

Happy New Year! 

2015 was a major year for me, in terms of personal development, finding out more about myself, where I 'fit in' and experiencing new things for the first time.

I turned 21 in September 2014, and it was a funny age, you're definitely not a teenager anymore, but you still feel like you can ask for help with everyday life decisions.. such as 'Mum will I die if I drink milk a day after the best before date?'

Most of the changes stem from my placement year which came to an end on the 31st July, in which I had a lot of major ups and downs. But overall, I do think it was an experience that toughened me up and truly taught me the meaning of independence.

I lived alone for the first time,
Flew alone for the first time,
Took on work important work tasks alone for the first time..
Pretty big stuff!

It was also the first year where I thought that decisions I start to make now will most likely effect my life, particularly long term decisions such as relationships, new friendships, career decisions and I also entered my final (EVER) year in education.

So although some of those things may not be important for some, it was a bit of an awakening for me.

Goals for 2016...

I am a little apprehensive when it comes to setting New Year Resolutions as I hate failure, so I have the tendency to avoid certain things altogether if I can't see a quick, or good result. 

However, this year I would like to:

Work on my health and fitness 

Make more time and effort for certain friends & family

Achieve a 2:1 Grade or higher in my degree

Get a graduate job

Blog more

Learn how to drive 

Use less heat on my hair 

Wish me luck!
