Here's 2016 In A Nutshell!

Hello Everyone!
  So it’s Monday evening but it’s going to be the last Monday post in 2016 so I thought I would do a little wrap up of the year and get ready for the New Year which is approaching fast.

  So as I’ve said before 2016 was such an incredible year for me, The beginning of the year I was just sticking to my normal routine of a job I wasn’t too fond of but the money was needed, In March I had my first driving test which I failed but the examiner was a dick to put it nicely which let’s be honest it just puts a downer on yourself but I re-booked it in and carried on with my lessons. I was on the hunt this year to find myself a new job so on went the applying and interviews to get nothing back. In June we had a week away and I’ve never felt more content and happy in my life it was amazing, The day before my 20th birthday I had my second driving test which I passed and I was so proud of myself for sticking through my anxiety attacks before my lessons and actually passing the test so celebrations were in full swing and my dad ever so kindly bought me my car for my birthday which was a Renault Clio which is my baby – It’s a car I know but your first car will always be your baby.

  Skip forward to August and my mum had an operation on her heart which me and my dad was there for her throughout it all and sat with her whilst she had to lay on the hospital for five hours after the operation and if anything that made me realise how I much I love my mum and how much I need her, The operation went well and hopefully everything is sorted for her, I applied for a job I knew I had no experience for but thought let’s just give it a go, A week later I had the interview and got the job – The job I love. I handed my notice into the only job I’ve ever properly had and if anything I was again proud of myself for actually going through with it but also felt a little bit sad for leaving the job and the people who had been part of my life for quite some time. The new chapter started and if anything at first I was so overwhelmed with everything I didn’t think I’d be able to get myself into a good routine but I’m doing so well at the moment. Those few months went by in a blur as I was just getting used to everything but here came November when some personal issues just ruined the year and I felt like everything had just fallen apart but I’m all about giving second chances and if I honestly think something is going to work I will give it another go and well that’s where everything fell back into place making me feel so much more content and happy by the end of the year.

  Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year and this year was no different, Although I wasn’t really in the festive mood I have to admit I was excited to just see everyone open their presents from me which made my Christmas so much better. My main presents were from Luke as I got money from the rest of my family which I will definitely purchase some things which have been on my list. So overall I’ve had a rocky few months towards the end of the year but if anything I wouldn’t change a thing as it’s changed a lot of things in my life. My blog is something I’m proud of all the time as it’s something I’ve stuck to throughout the year and if anything I just having my own little space on the internet, Saying that I’m slowly coming round to the idea of starting YouTube so hopefully I may have the confidence in the new year to actually start my own channel.

  This year made me realise quite a lot, I wouldn’t change my family for anything as I know that no matter what they are all there for me. I wouldn’t change my job or the people I work with as I honestly look at them all as my second family and again wouldn’t change that for anything. I’m proud of myself for doing things I never expected like my driving test, my blog and becoming a better person for myself. I realised not to worry about money as much as it’s not the end of the world but I’ll always be a worrier no matter what. I’m grateful for how financially secure I am to be able to treat myself multiple times a month but 2017 is my year to start saving for a deposit. My last final words for 2016 is “You were one of the best years of my life, I just hope 2017 is even better and everything will be so much stronger!” I can’t wait to see how 2017 actually turns out.
How was your 2016?
