Why 2017 Has Been A Great Year

30 December 2017


And goodbye to 2017. This is my last post this year! That's so sad, and also IN TWO DAYS IT'S GOING TO BE A NEW YEAR. THAT'S ABSOLUTELY INSANE!

This year has been really great for me. I know, I've had a few breakdowns throughout the year, but let's not dwell on those too much. They're in the past. Let's focus on what's been good, because there's been a lot of good!

What I Got For Christmas

26 December 2017

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and got everything that you asked Santa for! You might remember a few weeks ago, I wrote a post about not knowing what I wanted for Christmas. I ended up getting some really thoughtful gifts this year, and I'm so grateful for my friends and family for gifting them to me. I'm so lucky to have them in my life, and I'm also so glad that the people I gave cards and gifts to also seemed to really love what I got them. It's just made my 2017 that extra bit special. (Spoiler; the next post to go live on my blog is about why 2017 has been a great year.)

My Plans For Sherbet Aurora

23 December 2017


My post on Tuesday had a lot of negative vibes attached to it, and again, I'm really sorry about that! Today is a more positive one, and its about my plans/hopes for Sherbet Aurora in the coming year.

I Can't Afford To Do That

19 December 2017


How are you doing today? I hope you're well! And I'm really sorry that this post is likely to sound a bit like a rant, this has been something that's been building up for a little while, and it's just little comments that have been getting me down and now seems like a really good time to talk about it, considering I only have £50 in my bank account, £10 in my purse and another £50 in my savings, and I'm trying not to spend any of it. It's going well. Not.

My Ideal Guy

16 December 2017


So. I am single. Very single.
And a few months ago, one of my friends joked that because I'd written 'my dating profile' a year or so ago, that I should write a blog post about my ideal guy. I laughed it off as a stupid idea, but I'm out of ideas for today so... HERE WE GO!

Now before I actually start, please don't take this 100% seriously. Because it's not supposed to be taken seriously. I've liked people who fit into the 'categories' and people who don't. People are people and we shouldn't live life trying to fit others into boxes.

Why I Graduated A Year Early

12 December 2017


As you may be aware, last year I was at university. I graduated 'in absentia' this year on account of me being on holiday while the graduation ceremony was taking place, so the photos I've used in this post are from my HND graduation instead, just in case you're wondering why my hood probably isn't the right colour!

Being a university student was something I'd been working towards ever since I left high school in 2012 (SERIOUSLY HALF A DECADE AGO.) I'd always imagined that I'd be studying Geology or something Earth science related, because my dream has been to work with volcanoes, but my grades at school weren't that great, so I ended up going to college to study Travel and Tourism instead. The idea behind this was to gain tourism knowledge, then head to university and obtain a business degree so that I'd have business knowledge in order to start my own Geological Tour Operator. This is still a goal of mine, or, just to work in Geo Tourism in some aspect. I digress.

Un Petite Article En Français

Aujourd'hui je voudrais écrire une article en français. Mon français n'est pas très bien, mais je vais essaier.

Cutting Ahead

05 December 2017


You might remember a few months ago, I posted a blog titled "A Hair Raising Scheme".  The idea behind this was that I was looking to raise some money for my long-term travel plans, that I wanted to start at the beginning of next year, and that one of the ways I was looking to raise money was by cutting off my very long hair. I'd even set up a Go Fund Me page and raised... £5. That plus a lot of other reasons made my plans change very quickly and I'm now looking to stay in my job and take all my holidays instead so that I still get to travel out of it, but to also have money to keep me afloat. It's a good plan but I'm still a little bit down about it.

All I Want For Christmas Is...?

02 December 2017


Today is December 2nd. First of all, wtf?! Second of all, this is when everybody starts asking me what I want for my Christmas, and where I disappointingly have absolutely no idea whatsoever. #Spoiler?

I haven't known what I want for Christmas for a really long time. Money? Happiness? My dream job tied up all pretty in a wicker basket with a blue ribbon? I really don't know. But maybe that's a good thing.
