So it's finally 2014 people! How are your feelings for this year? Positive or otherwise? How was 2013 for you?
Personally 2013 was mixed for me. I've made lots of friends, made new goals, started a new college course, saw my best friend get married, and many other things. I think this year I've finally become more more comfortable in my own skin. My confidence has grown hugely, though still not as much as I would like, but I'm more positive about just generally getting on in life. Though I still don't have work, and I haven't started driving yet, I hope that both of these things will come in 2014.
Of course there have been bad things too. My dad had a major heart operation at the beginning of the year, both of my nans have been rapidly deteriorating in physical and mental health, and many other things. I quit my job after a month because it just became too much, and I'd be lying if I said the thought work didn't scare me a bit now, but I'm still applying for jobs - just haven't had any feedback from any of them yet.
After college I'm considering going to Seattle, by this time I will be 20 (2016 / 2017) and hopefully have a bit of savings. This is still just a thought and I'm just looking into my options right now, because Seattle is expensive and I'd need to see what job I could get, but it definitely looks possible so far.
2013 went so quick and I'm sure this year will be just the same.. Have a good one!
