Ah, it’s winter which is my second favourite season of the year (after Autumn, of course). This will be my last post this year detailing my goals and what I want to achieve, however, this post is going to be a little different. In today’s post, I’m going to be looking back on what I’ve achieved this year. I really don’t think that we give ourselves credit for what we can get done in the year. I didn’t get all my big goals completed but I have got quite a lot done so I’m going to toot my own horn in this post.
ACTUALLY FINISHED FIRST YEAR
I never ever thought that I would go to university when I was a child. I didn’t ever think that it was a place for people from council estates like me but boy, have I proved twelve-year-old Katie wrong. When I started university, I really wanted to do well and I did! I managed to finish my first year of university with a 2:1 which makes me super proud of myself.
STARTING LOOKING AFTER MYSELF MORE
I feel like this year I’ve put a lot of effort into how I treat myself. For a long time, I’ve kind of neglected myself – of course, I do the normal things such as eat, sleep and hygiene. However, taking extra care of myself by doing little things such as buying myself flowers, eating homemade foods and doing facemasks.
THINKING MORE ABOUT WHAT I EAT
I’ve always been the kind of person who just eats what they like and never thinks about the repercussions – both health-wise and environmentally. This year I’ve become a lot more conscious of what I eat and how it affects not only myself but also the environment. I spoke a little more about how I have become a little more green in 2018 (read it out and it rhymes which made my day aha).
PLANNING THINGS OUT PROPERLY
This year has been so important in me learning how to plan properly. Especially in the last six months of this year, I’ve put a lot of effort into making sure that I am planning what I need to have done. My blog posts have been planned months ahead, assignments have been planned ages before needing to be handed in and my life, in general, is a lot better planned which has put me at ease.
Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed my little reflection! What have you achieved in 2018? I’d love to hear in the comments. Have a lovely day and stay beautiful.
