With 2016 coming to close soon (how fast has this year gone?!) and with it being quite an eventful year. I have decided to get back into blogging with a fun New Years game I found on Pinterest. This comes as a free printable game you can play with friends but I thought I’d answer some of the questions myself to recap 2016.
Most Memorable Moment of the Year: This is hard. I have had so many amazing moments in 2016 that I could consider memorable. However, the moment that I will always remember 2016 by, is being diagnosed with diabetes. It will definitely be the thing in years to come that helps me remember 2016.
Funniest Moment of the Year: I had several contenders for this. 2016 has been a year full of laughs and funny moments. My funniest moment though has to be when I ended up having my best friend Jake live with me for a whole weekend. What started as me just trying to get a friend home ended up in a weekend long drinking session full of laughs and memories we will cherish forever. He even introduced me to me new favourite comedian and for that I will be forever grateful.
Happiest Day of the Year: I think my happiest day(s) of the year this year has been my birthday weekend. I had all of my favourite people together celebrating my birthday. I had Ikea trips, family meals, drinks by the canal and a garden party fit for a Princess. It was such a fun filled few days with lots of giggles and drinks. I got to know one of my closest friends more over that weekend too, and for that its got to be my happiest day(s) of the year.
Biggest Lesson Learned: I think my biggest lesson learned this year was that life is too short. I now say this all the time (apologies to my family and friends) and live by it. It really is too short to worry about the small things in life and now I have learnt this I am much happier. It will definitely stick by me for years to come.
Best Trip of the Year: I think my favourite trip this year has to be my trip to Chester to visit the girls I went to University with. It was a great tour of the North with us visiting Liverpool and Chester. It was great catching up with the girls after months apart and we definitely made it worth while. We exchanged many hilarious stories and created some more that we will remember for years to come.
Best Film of the Year: This is tricky as I have discovered loads of amazing films this year. However I was a massive fan of Deadpool and I think it might be my favourite film of 2016.
Favourite Holiday Memory: As I haven’t been ‘on holiday’ this year I’m going to give a memory from the school holidays I had. I think my favourite holiday memory will be when I went to Southampton to visit my best friend at her University. I also got a trip to Salisbury which was very beautiful and its a city I cannot wait to visit again.
Favourite Food of this Year: If one food were to sum up this year it would be macaroni and cheese. I discovered its one of the few foods I can make and make well. Here is to many more macaroni and cheese meals in the future.
Favourite TV Show of the Year: One series I really got into this year was Black Mirror. I really didn’t think it would be my cup of tea as I was told it can be political which can go over my head a bit. However, I actually found each episode just as gripping as the one before and each expressed issues that instantly provoked thoughts about the world we are in and where it could head. If you haven’t already checked it out I would definitely recommend.
Favourite Song of the Year: This is a massively tricky one as music plays such an important role in my life. I think my song of 2016 will have to be Hair – Little Mix. This song is insanely catchy and not normally a song I’d like. However, it completely summed up my attitude towards certain people throughout the year. As I said before, life is too short.
One Word to Describe this Year: If I could pick one word to describe this year it would definitely be ‘Roller coaster’. There has been some real lows but some monumental highs. It has been a tricky year at times and I have often felt like I was dropping from dizzy heights. However, I have always got back up and I’m currently ending the year on what seems to be a massive high.
What I am Looking Forward to Next Year: Next year I am looking forward to travelling more. I have a trip to Australia booked and I hopefully will get to head abroad again. I’m looking forward to more trips away to see my university friends and completing my teaching qualification. I have high hopes for 2017 and I really hope it doesn’t let me down.
See you in 2017, with a big smile and new post all on my New Years resolutions. Until next time,
