Every year I look back. I can't help it.
So now I'm blogging about it. Predictable? Probably.
But nevertheless, to put it into one sentence: 2011 was the dogs cojones.
Personal goals were achieved, fun was had, new friends were made, I'm coming out of it with my health still in tact; what more can you really ask for?
- I went, and completed, a year abroad in Spain. A life long ambition - check!;
Technically, I guess I started that journey in 2010, but it was completed May 2011. I flew home a changed, independent, more confident person and the rest of the year was a positive one from then on.
I visited Seville, Malaga, Granada, Cordoba, Cadiz, Valencia, Madrid, Barcelona and Galicia all in the same year - adding another big tick to the 'places I want to visit in my life' list.
- I met and was part of; Team Bangs on the Run. A bunch of kick-ass women came into my life.
- I began blogging - 2011 was the year of the blog for me.
With being Featured on Freshly Pressed & Shortlisted for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards, it really was a good year for this little fella *pats* I gained a lovely handful of readers, some of whom have stuck it out while I tried to find my feet & for that I am grateful.
- Evans/Models1 - A path I never expected to go down in 2011; modelling.
- I GRADUATE!
- Run a Half Marathon in Berlin
Those two are 100% happening. 1. whether I graduate with a First, 2.1, 2.2; fact is, I did it. I've struggled, but I'm proud of my effort (and I'll become the first person in my family to have a degree hah!) so it's not something I won't be happy (or quiet) about :)
Berlin - Bring. It. On. Team Bangs Army will be in full force, and I can't wait to complete it; and see a new city in the mean time!
Things I'd like to achieve:
- More travellng?
- I turn 23?
- I start a PGCE?
- I enter the 'real world.'
