This year has been one of the most life-changing yet amazing years of my life.. Every goal I set myself I achieved. At the beginning of 2016, I was in a completely different place! Emotionally, I wasn’t doing too great and looking back. I don’t think I realised how low I had become. However, by the time February came around things started looking up!
Save enough money to get my next car
Now to some a Vauxhall Corsa may not be that exciting, however to me it was my reward for working my ass off and saving every penny I could. I’ve never been great with saving money because I would always get to a certain amount then decide to treat myself, so the fact I managed to control my usual habits of spending my money is something as well!
Find complete happiness
Like I said at the start of this post, the beginning of 2016 wasn’t great, to say the least. I was stuck in a cycle of unhappiness and to be fair, I was just existing.. Not really living. I got into the routine of only getting out of bed when I had to go to work and the odd occasion where I would see friends, I was mostly watching stuff on Netflix or sleeping the days away. Turns out I only needed one person to get me out of that cycle. That person was Toby. Our paths have always crossed since we met at school in 2005, he’s always been one of the few people that I could easily talk to about anything and everything! We’ve been together since March and I don’t think I could be any happier than I am right now. He’s the reason why I’m going to get my ass into gear with my YouTube and blog, he knows I enjoy creating content but I had lost my confidence or motivation to do it. He’s restored my motivation and he’s helping me come up with content and the best thing.. He’s willing to be in videos and posts! Yaaaas! I’m planning on buying myself a ‘vlogging’ camera just so I have a good camera which is small enough to fit in my handbag and doesn’t weigh it down! We’re planning a trip to Edinburgh sometime in the future and I would like to film it as well as any other moments throughout the year.
Step up the ladder at work
After about a year and a half of learning and working crazy hours I finally got the promotion I was after! I’m now a team leader in a Co-Op store and I absolutely love it! I’ve always been a fan of responsibility and this position has so much responsibility so it suits me down to the ground.. The only sad part is after February this year I will be made redundant because they’re closing the store I’m working in.. However, it gives me the chance to try something or somewhere new!
I’m looking forward to seeing what 2017 brings!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
