2015 In Review


It's that time of the year again when people start talking about fresh starts, goals and resolutions but before I join in, I thought it might be interesting to go over the post I wrote last year on my goals for 2015 and see how many I achieved. 

I feel like I say this every year but this year has been one of the hardest of my life and if I had to describe it in one word - painful. However with that being said, I did still manage to tick off the majority of the things on my list. Excluding the goals relevant to my now ex-boyfriend (for obvious reasons), the only other things I didn't achieve were volunteering and a nose job. Out of 15 goals, I don't think I did too badly in all honesty. 

Rather than going through everything individually, I thought it would be more fun to list 10 things I loved in 2015.

  1. Getting a puppy - Of course this had to be the highlight of my year and probably of my life as well.
  2. Attending blog events - I said I wanted to say yes more and I did! I've had some amazing opportunities through my little space on the internet.
  3. Meeting other bloggers - This leads on from my last point as I've met some amazing people through my blog. It's great having such a supportive network and being around people who understand a blogger's life.
  4. Visiting Florida - I had the most magical time on my holiday and I'm gutted I won't be returning in the future but I'm looking forward to exploring new territories. 
  5. Joining the gym - After a month of being ill, I'm not in the best physical shape right now but I have managed to keep up my workout routine for the majority of the year and can't wait to get back to the gym next week. 
  6. Making new friends - I've really gone out of my comfort zone this year but it's resulted in me meeting a lot of new people and making a bunch of new friends. 
  7. Removing negativity - Something I've found just as important as making new friends is ending harmful relationships and removing negativity from my life. Positive people only, please!
  8. Seeing my friends more - As well as making new friends, I've tried really hard to keep in touch with all my old friends and I think I've done pretty well. I moved in with two of my best friends in Manchester and saw some friends from school this Christmas that I hadn't seen in several years! 
  9. Being single - It has it's downfalls but the majority of the time I bloody love being single. So much so that I dedicated an entire blog post to the topic - The Single Life.
  10. Quitting my job - At the start of the year I decided to quit my job and it's probably one of the best decisions I've ever made. Working from home definitely has its perks - mainly that I get to spend so much time with my little doggy! 
After writing this list, I guess this year hasn't been all bad. I'll be glad to see the back of it though and can't wait to see what 2016 has in store for me. Hopefully lots of nice things...
Wishing you all a Happy New Year as well!
