Reflecting On Life

Tonight I have a bit of a reflective post for you guys. This is because it is coming to the end of an amazing year, and I have done so much stuff which I feel as though I need to reflect upon. 

We make a life by what we give.

Launch of 'Jessie'

The launch of 'Jessie' was made this year, and I honestly can't see my life without writing my blog. I love writing things which may be useful to you guys, or just to inform you what I have been up to recently and the places that I have visited.

I Attended My First Festival

I attended Kendal Calling with all of my friends this year, giving me some independence. I loved that weekend so so much even though the weather was a bit meh :(. The atmosphere was unimaginable and I definitely will be attending next years festival in the fields!

Last Family Holiday of The Year

Seeing as though I am going to university next September, and my school will not let me take any time off during term time, my family decided to venture to Turkey for our last family holiday for a while. The weather was so hot, and it really was memorable. It was lovely to have us all together away from our home town, and experience something we never have before. 

I Made It Into My Second Year of Sixth Form

Unlike a few people in my year, I was one of the lucky individuals who passed their AS exams and made it into my second year of sixth form. I couldn't imagine what I would do if I had been asked to leave, as my whole future is depending on my school studies, and I would be completely lost.

I Became A Senior Student

In your last year of sixth form, your fellow peers and teachers nominate who they believe will be good role models for the schools, and I was lucky enough to be nominated. I love the job of being a senior student, as I get to participate in making the school a better place, and making decisions for the sixth form as a whole. I also get to do fun stuff like arranging the ball and trips for us all to go on.

I Received Prizes At School

At or annual Prizegiving, I received 2 prizes. One for my work and one for overall attainment at school. This was a hug achievement for me, as I never feel as though I am recognised for my work etc. and this just proved that everyone is recognised in their own way.

I Found New Interests

I also found new interests this year, such as blogging and getting back into playing my flute. I really wish I hadn't given up playing the flute last year, as I completely forgot how much I loved playing it. I am also glad that I found blogging, and I wouldn't give up my blog for the world.

I Became Closer To Some Amazing People

Me and my mum have always had our rough patches, but this year has proven how close a mother and daughter bond can be. We truly are inseparable! I have also become closer to some people wgho have blogs of their own such as Linsey from Red Velvet Kiss, Amee from Amee and Lauren from Destroy After Reading. These people have shown me how fun life is, and have made me look at life from a different view point. 

Everything Started To Get Better

I don't want to get into it too much, but after having a pretty rough few years, everything started to get better. Being around great people and my family have made it so much easier to overcome those years, and to start looking forward rather than backwards.

I Got Offers From My Top Universities

This bit is sooooooo exciting! I got offers back from the universities that I most wanted to go to, with great entry requirements too! I have never been so happy receiving an email before. 

So there we have it guys, my highlights from this past year. I know that the post is pretty long, but I couldn't not share these with you guys.
