Wow, I still can believe it's day one of 2016. Have you ever had the feeling many days have passed in the blink of an eye? That's usually me when we're on holiday + when 2015 finishes and decides to bring new expectations, dreams, achievements and massive goals.
I wouldn't dare to say 2015 has been the best year ever even though I've reached one of my biggest and most exiting life goals: I'm officially a (very stressed) UNI student. Last year of school was huge for me, I didn't know what I was getting myself into until I had to take my last exams before getting into (now) one of my favourite places. I consider myself a very hard-working person and I do love to study but during these last couple of months I've studied more than my last four years of school. I'm absolutely in love with the degree (journalism) and I can't wait to finish my revision and exams period so I can get to learn new things. UNI life is great (when you don't have to do revision, obvs.)and now I feel like I've got more time to do UNI course work and blogging at the same, even though sometimes I still get very very stressed because I'm not always able to plan new content weeks ahead of my posting schedule.
2015 has been a very unforgettable year indeed. First, I decided to challenge myself as I wasn't feeling very happy and I needed a fresh start before leaving school so I started posting on Instagram pictures with the #100daysofhappy hashtag. Then, I dyed my hair bright pink (I do regret it sometimes) when I left school and I spent all summer until mid October dying my ends. I tried to dye my hair grey but I got quite scared of bleaching my lovely hair for life. Latest news on the hair front, I've got short hair and (gold) highlights all over it. There's nothing like kicking off 2016 with blonde hair.
One thing I'm sad about is not having one of my best friends by my side today. 10 years ago we moved house to the countryside and we got the loveliest dog ever, my little darling Frodo (Lord of the Rings freaks at home). A month ago he left us but I do feel very calm knowing he was very old, lived more years than expected and we took care of him until the very last minute. This is something I haven't talked about since it happened and only a couple of my closest friends know. Not only Frodo but Isolda, my other little dog, passed away last January right when I got back from one of my early morning runs. It has been quite a sad year for me in the pet front but I presume this things happen and we're definitely not prepared for it.
Last but not least, some big, exiting and magical things happened a few months ago. I got to travel with my family for a whole month, which was probably the greatest thing I've been able to do in a long time and I managed to save up enough money to create this precious thing I get to call my blog. Since TWDD started, I haven't stopped writing, learning new things and taking up new offers. I never thought brands would like to work with me or people would gladly accept my guest posting content. I've got a great number of visits and subscribers and this site is only a few months old! This is all unbelievable so thank you if you're a regular reader, a new one or a friend of mine, all of these great things keep happening because of you.
