First of all and most importantly, I survived. This year has been tough. On me, my family and friends. At times it has seemed insurmountable. We made it through though, and things can only improve.
This year I made new friends, at work and at University. Who I think have really helped to bring me out of my shell. They are all so wonderful and I can only hope to get to know them better in the coming year.
This year I explored my country. Which is pretty self explanatory except this has always been a goal of mine. I visited lots of tourist attractions like, The Kelpies, Rob Roys Grave, Loch Lomond and lots of others.

This year I visted Yorkshire for the first time. It's a wonderful place with beautiful scenery and I really hope to return one day.
This year I studied harder than I ever have. I feel as though I really pushed myself and, felt maybe for the first time, my boundaries. It's a wonderful feeling to know you've tried as hard as you possibly could and again to see the results of that effort payed back.
This year I started journal-ling again which has been another one of my goals for a few years now. I think I just had to find the right way for me, as well as to learn not to put pressure on myself to write when I don't feel like it. I learned it should never be a chore and to only write when I truly want to.
This year I joined the gym.
This year I baked.

This year I did yoga. A lot of yoga!
There are a few other things that should maybe be included. Like teaching myself shorthand and learning a few new recipes but looking back, the above are the things that stand out. It was both a wonderful and difficult year but I lived it and I've learned. I hope this coming year will bring wonderful experiences and happy memories!
