I’m going to start by introducing myself – sort of.
This is not my first blog. I have another one under the username ‘http://shemovesinherownway91.wordpress.com/.’ I went on it today for the first time in about six months to see that I still have a regular amount of viewers. I’ve decided that it’ll be easier for me to just start a new blog rather than try and revive that one. Having said that I will probably bring some of those blog posts on to here at some point.
So today is the last ever day of 2013. A lot of people will be reflecting on the last twelve months and thinking of ways to improve and make 2014 the best year yet. On the whole my 2013 was very mixed. I got engaged (yay!) and I graduated with a 2:1 from University. But I also made and lost friends very quickly, I was incredibly unhappy in a job that I had to keep until September – No one will ever understand how happy I was the day I put my notice in!
Overall I learnt a lot about myself and, I hate to say it, but the majority of what I learnt wasn’t good. I look back and think I wasted so much time worrying about small little things that I wouldn’t even think twice about now. I didn’t take the opportunity to really get to know people when I should have done. I isolated certain people because I was jealous/scared of what they might do.
I’m not one for ever saying things like ‘2014 is my year’ etc. I don’t like the typical cheesy things everyone says every single year. So for me, what I’m going to say is; 2014 is the chance to try things differently and see how they work out.
For me and all historians it will be an exciting year, as it will be the centenary of World War One. An event that I am looking forward to getting stuck into – I’ve even been buying more books in preparation!
There is also some games or something happening in Glasgow at some point, right?
Anyway. they will be hundreds of exciting things happening in 2014 and I’m sure we’ll all find something to enjoy in the next 365 days, so Happy New Year!!
P.S: Don’t drink and drive!!
