2013 Recap

This is has been a way crazy year for me. Lots of bad and lots of good and sooo much change.
I want to focus on only the good bits though!

January - This photo is from NYE last year which I spent in London with my best friend and his family. The 31st is his birthday so it's extra special :)

April - I went to Bordeaux to do work experience and met so many lovely people and had the best time!

June - I don't usually post photos of my family but obvs all my birthday photos have them in! My 18th was lovely, we had loads of family and family friends over for a barbecue. I look like a mug in this photo but it's one of my faves 'cos of how happy I look. This is where things kinda started getting better for me as I'd finished my last year at school! I also passed my driving test the day after my birthday!

July - Summer was crazy hot and I loved it! I have more photos of other lovely days out to places like Tilgate, Brighton and Hever Castle. This is in Hyde Park in London.

August - this was a good and bad month. We went on our annual family holiday to Fuerteventura and I appreciated it even more 'cos of all the bad things going on.

Also August - I went to New York for the first time with my mam! It was an 18th birthday present for me and it was the best few days :)

In August I also found out I got into Portsmouth uni which was amazing! Unforch I didn't get halls so I then had a few stressful weeks trying to find somewhere to live!

September - I went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour with my fam. Yes this was a highlight.

I moved to uni this month as well! Out of my parents house for the first time ever!

October - this photo is from Halloween. Me and my housemates made Nicholas Cage masks for it! This was probably one of the best months for me this year. I did so many things and had so much fun with my housemates, they made me feel super happy all the time. I hope when I go back after the Christmas holidays it'll be more like this again.

December - Christmas. This has been one of my best ever. I appreciated family time more than ever this year seeing as I'm back at my parents house for only a few weeks.

2013 was a year of achievements, big change and big life lessons. I want 2014 to settle down with the life lessons and to be a year of fun and adventures. I want to look back this time next year at all the great things I did. Bring it on.
