Even if you weren’t among the people who denounced this particular trip we all took around the sun, it’s hard not to feel a little optimistic about the start of a new year. I won’t give you the “new year, new you” spiel, because I’m one of those who doesn’t believe in this shindig.
Happy new year to all! Well, for being the first post of the year anyways, as it’s been over a week since the new year began… so… But anyways, hope everyone is doing well, and celebrated the new year in style just like myself! So as usual, the start of the year comes with new goals to reach by the end of the year, and I have listed mine below…
- Publish my first article – ACHIEVED 8-1-17 (was so tempted to write 2016 like you would NOT believe!)
- Publish my first paid article – ACHIEVED 3-1-17
- Travel with best friend – SOON ACHIEVED
- Buy a professional camera

If I can actually think on any others I will add them. My brain is so friend right now I can’t think straight!
See you in the next one!
2016 was probably the most eventful year of my life…
Starting from the downs…
I was in and out of hospital for a whole week due to depression and severe anxiety.
I lost the people I considered my family during that time.
I was arrogant and hard-headed towards my family. This cost me a lot.
I had such low self-esteem I was unable to get out of bed, and would sleep at 5pm, waking up the next day.
I was dumped by a person I thought loved me during this difficult time.
… and ending with the ups 🙂
I met Chris, the most amazing and bravest man I’d ever met my whole life. He accepts me for who I am, supports me in every decision and… well, he’s proper badass to be honest.
I got a new job as an LSA in an all-boys school, which I love with all my heart and introduced me to new, great friends.
I started this blog, which is doing quite well if I may say so myself.
I realised my family loves me more than anything in the world.
I went to Rome with two friends, and my hero from my favourite show ‘Supernatural’, Jared Padalecki, who himself overcame depression, and also some amazing people. You guys rock!
I went to Budapest with my sister – only our second bonding trip!
I took part in the school panto to overcome my stagefright, and boy was it fun!
I got a C in my secretarial course, thanks to the best teacher, SJ!
What does 2017 have in store for me?
I will be going to London with my BFF, our first bonding trip after 11 years of friendship, where we will be watching Cursed Child.
I will be celebrating my one-year recovery in March
I will be collaborating with fellow Maltese bloggers (so watch this space!)
So you can probably tell my 2016 was an eventful one, with both good and bad things. But you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way. The bad led to the good, and it helped shape me into a better person.
From all this, I can tell 2017 will be a good one 🙂
