Hello my lovelies! It's been a loooooooooong time. I got a really sweet message from my old blog friend who asked me where I'd disappeared to, and it reminded me how I've missed writing. I feel like writing my blog posts are like writing a letter to an old friend. So, old friend, get yourself a brew, have a sit down and I'll fill you in on what you've missed. (Which really, isn't all that much).
This year, has just passed me by in such a flash. Do you ever have one of those moments where you just think 'we're in OCTOBER? Since when?!' - and then you think about what's happened this year, and then you get that sudden regret because you realise that this year hasn't been too great? This might not be you this year, but it's totally me. Some may say I'm being pessimistic, but not at all. I look at it like this: I wanna learn from this year. I wanna make next year better. I want to get to October 2017 and think 'Yeah, I worked hard for that!' or 'I'm in a better place than I was last year!'. But I still refuse to say 'new year, new me'. I don't want to be that guy.
This year's been a mediocre mental health year. I based my life around Uni, and when that suddenly started to fade away, I found myself in a full-time job and hating it. I wasn't happy by a long shot. That's not to say my whole year has been miserable. It hasn't. I've just been bobbing along, hoping for the best. I'm all good, you needn't be worried. I'm just making a more conscious effort to be happy. Which is a good thing!
I've had a great year reconnecting with old friends, meeting new friends, a new job, learning that my eyebrows need filling in, finding my style, and I'm well on the way to living a more positive and promising life. I'm wanting to travel every now and again with one of my dearest friends, and just have more experiences. Life is a beautiful thing and I have big hopes for myself to have more positive experiences, and I hope you do too.
So you've not missed much, really. I'm not going to promise frequent posts on here, because the reality is that life has just got right in the way... and I'm lazy. But I'm trying to change that. Change is a good thing.
I'll see you when I see you. Here's to hoping that the next time you hear from me isn't 'Life Update 2017', ey?
