2018, where do we we begin? It literally began at the beach with a take-away bag of McDonalds and an incredibly intoxicated boyfriend in tow. We’d abandoned a disappointing NYE event, but I was impressed. We’d ditched the event rather than wasting our time and forcing it to be something spectacular. What a good way to start 2018, I thought. Life’s too short, so why spend it unhappy and unsatisfied? Fast forward three months, and that was exactly what we did with our relationship. Adios. Sayonara. Au revoir.
They say a new year is for new beginnings, new chances and a new you. But you know what’s been forgotten? A new wish list! While I was incredibly lucky over Christmas, there are a few goodies that popped into my head after I unwrapped everything. Some of these beauties have been in my memory bank for a while now, while others caught my eye as soon as I saw them!
If I had to describe myself in one word, it’d be easy. Planaholic.
Remember Ashley Olsen’s immaculately organised journal in New York Minute? Well that was when my love for planning began. Her journal was colour coded, highlighted and tabbed. Plus there was a compartment for everything! Ever since, I’ve always had a planner nearby to keep my life in check.
2017 was a lot of things to me. It was living in the west and then living in the east. It’s been adventurous and it’s been dull. It was moving slowly and then it sped up. It’s comprised of many challenges and I’ve learnt more lessons in one year than I’ve learnt in my previous 21 years of life. 2017 was many things, but it was the year where I’ve truely growing up.
