2015 | A New Year Update.

Okay, so can we just, like, re-start 2015 please? I totally wasn't ready.
It hit me the other day that we're 6 months through the year already. Like, a whole 6 months. ½ the year, 181 days, it's gone and it's never coming back guys. I know, scary.
It's definitely true what they say about the years flying by a lot quicker as you get older, so goodness knows how much quicker they're going to get in the years to come.
As 2015 approached, it was just as I was getting properly into this whole blogging thing. I read a lot of blog posts that all had a similar theme. There were a lot of New Year's Resolutions floating around (including my own) and a lot of '2015 is going to be my year' kinda tweets. You know the one's… And to be honest I was thinking a similar thing. I think we all do it every year. Tell ourselves that this is the year that we're going to fully sort our lives out. Get rid of all the crap and actually focus purely on what we want and not settle for anything else. Um, yeah… 
My New Year's Resolutions included worrying less (definitely NOT got this one down yet), reading more (nope, not even close) and eating healthier and getting back to the gym (this one, is like a kind of. The last month definitely, before that though? Nothing.).
But actually, there's been a lot going on in the last 6 months that I hadn't quite planned for. 
So, for starters, I've actually kept this blogging thing up, which although I'd hoped that I would, with work and everything else going on, I wasn't exactly sure whether I would be able to. But I'm so so glad I have. In case you haven't noticed, (and y'know, I'm sure I've only mentioned it once or twice..) I'm LOVING it. It's taken over quite literally everything but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I've met the best bunch of bloggers, and I'm certainly not quite ready for this blog to go anywhere anytime soon… as long as that's okay with you lot!

Blogging has also made me re-think about what I actually wanna do, and it's thrown up a lot of life questions for me, both directly from working on my blog and discovering the whole world that comes along with it, but also indirectly from the people I've met. 
Within the first two months of the year, the people in my life had changed so dramatically. I'd met A LOT of new lovely bloggers, most of which I'm now extremely lucky to be able to call some of my closest friends, with a few people I'd met last year coming back into my life also.. even if they did kinda turn back around and leave again pretty sharpish. But that's just how it is sometimes. Either way, I've learned a lot from each and every one of you… not that I expect you guys I'm talking about to reading this… but on the off chance… yes, I'm talking about you, so hey!

Something else I hadn't planned on; How much more of a social life you get from blogging. Like, if I'm not at work, or now in the gym, I'm either at my laptop blogging, or spending time over coffee with some of you lovely blogging girlies, or at some of the fabulous events that I'm grateful each and every time to get invited to! Literally working my way up the country with these events too… first off London for the #nyLDNmeet, then was Stratford for a lovely day out with some of the girls,  I kinda gate-crashed and pretended I was from the West Midlands for one Saturday in Shrewsbury for the #shropshirebloggermeet, Liverpool for the #NWbloggersmeet, , then Manchester for the #mybagAW event, and next up? The Peak District. For what we're hoping is going to be the most fun bloggers holiday weekend ever. Yes, we're talking a #bloggersleepover in the cutest cottage. I CAN'T WAIT. 
So, along with having to spend most of my days in full-time work as well as juggling keeping fit and my blog, 2015 so far has been prettyyyyyy hectic. So while I'm full on majorly failing at keeping up with my New Year's Resolutions, I actually feel like I've achieved a lot of other stuff.

Besides… I've still got the next 6 months to sort my life out, right? ;)
