2016 Summary

I know everyone is thinking 2016 has been one of the most disastrous years so far but for me personally, 2016 as arguably been the best year of my life.

I spent January - April, volunteering and travelling in Sri Lanka. It was one of life's most amazing learning experiences, and if I could go back and do it all again, I would. I met my now best friend on this trip, I swam in the most amazing waters, climbed a mountain and just learned to appreciate life 1000000x more than I did beforehand.

I then came home and spent my summer working for my other best friend. A bittersweet experience but a huge learning curve in terms of helping me understand my chosen career path. During this time I also rejoined a musical theatre society, and started rehearsing for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. I also went to Edinburgh to see Nicole and V Festival with my friend Kitty, which was amazing!

September was when I started my MA in social work. It's been hard going, time has flown and to be honest, I don't know how I've made it to December without falling into a hibernation sleep. But as hard as it is (and trust me, I thought with a first class degree, it would be a piece of cake. WRONG.), I love every minute of it. I also performed on stage again, met some more amazing people and just loved life in general.

October - December has flown by in a blink of an eye. I was cast as Cinderella, which I'm performing next month! I've been to London, Sheffield, blogged, shopped, been to Uni, went to Scarefest, eaten out, walked miles on Pokemon GO.. you name it, I've done it.

2016 is probably the best year of my life because I decided to start living it and say yes.
