Where I've been: 2015

Sunday, 24 January 2016
So, perhaps first of all, I should apologise - I have been MIA for so long! I've had so many changes and it made it so difficult to blog! As some of you may know at the beginning of last year I was working full time with lots of different charities/non-profit organisations. By the time I started university everything became way more chaotic! But I'm back and I'm so looking forward to getting back into the blogging world! 

I thought it would be an idea to fill you in on what's new in my life and some highlights of 2015. So here goes...

I've already mentioned my biggest change, I'm now a student at one of the best universities in the country. The University of Exeter is a fantastic place to be, I was very lucky that by the middle of 2015 I was given unconditional offers to study Geography at two of Exeter's campuses. For those of you who don't know, there's the larger campus (in Devon) and a smaller campus, close to Falmouth in Cornwall. It was a hard decision, as I was also given an opportunity to study International Development in Sussex, but I chose to commute from our cosy flat everyday to the Cornwall campus. Public transport is now the bane of my life, but I wouldn't change my decision for the world. I get to spend my weekdays with lovely people, beautiful scenery and trips to the beach. 

In August a new position for a management job opened at my place of work. I decided to apply and after a nerve-wracking interview I was offered the job! My work life is running very smoothly at the moment, although it's quite a responsibility. I work with monitoring progress, development and on some of our busier days I am running a team of up to 50 people at a time! It's definitely a learning curve and at some times scary but I think there's nothing more important than bettering yourself, even if it is into the unknown. 

Chris & I are still very much a couple, we're currently re-furbishing our living room which, although sounds mundane, is such a treat! Since Chris owns the flat and he had moved in first it's always been very dark furniture - such a 'lads pad'. It's so fun to be able to lighten up the room with things that we mutually appreciate! We're also in the middle of planning a holiday which is all very exciting. Some of our best friends and family have got married and had children this year, it's been so lovely welcoming new additions to our close circle.

Visually, I've changed a lot over the last year. I went from peroxide blonde to dark brown and all the shades in between! It would be a lie to say I've 'grown up' over the last year, I feel moving out at 18 had already taught me a lot about adult life. However, I've definitely learnt a few more life lessons over 2015. I don't have time for people who won't make an effort with our relationship, it's definitely shitty to feel like you're the only one who cares and, chances are, it's true! I learnt that just because you received AAAB at A Level does not mean you can ace an assignment at university without lots of relevant reading. I've also found that I don't really like to drink, at least, not for the sake of drinking. 
What about you all? Has anything changed for you over the last twelve months? I'd love to hear all about it.
