Hello again! It seems like YEARS since my last blog post, it almost feels weird typing away to myself... good weird though!
I took quite a lot of time off, just to spend time solidly focusing on me, and what I want to do with my life (geez, v deep I know). I just felt like there was this big weight on me late this year, someone in the back of my head telling me to get my life sorted right now or I would be a massive failure. Now I realise, after giving myself a little bit of a reality check, I need to be easier on myself. I gave two fingers up to that voice because I'm only 19 and I have so much time to decide what I want to do with my life. If I want to chop and change, I'm in a great position where I CAN do that. I'm determined 2018 will be the year where I just stop caring about what I'm doing in terms of a 'career' for now, and spend time focusing on having fun, just living a little!
Something I'd really love to do more of this year is travel. I absolutely adored Edinburgh when I went up in November for a few days with my other half, and I would absolutely love to explore England some more... Maybe a cheeky road trip in the summer? I also want to visit some more countries a bit closer to me, Amsterdam is OBVIOUSLY still one of my top places I REAAAAALLY want to visit, I need to get there ASAP!
I really want to spend more time on myself a bit more this year too. You have probably heard this a thousand times, apologies. But I really need to give myself a kick up the rear and get more active! That doesn't mean to be that person who goes to the gym 5 times a week and has a spectacular diet (no hate on those who do, seriously you guys need to feed me your motivation pls), but just getting out of the house and taking the dogs on a big walk, picking up something fun to do, and making some small changes in my diet... Like not eating the rest of the biscuits left over from Christmas because "They need to be eaten".
Anyway, more from me soon I promise! I have some more posts coming, and I'm back with a bit more oooomph!
