Lessons from America #2 – Snowboarding

It is crazy to believe that 365 short days ago, I was in New York. It seems so surreal to believe that an entire year has passed by since the end of my American Adventure but, as the phrase says, time goes on, no matter how much we want it to, which is why I’m glad to be looking over this adventure and refreshing my memory on how much I accomplished last year.

Lessons from America #1 – Getting to Denver

This time last year, I was in Denver, visiting my cousin and his family. I stayed with them for twelve days before heading to Pennsylvania, Boston and finally meeting up with my boyfriend in New York before coming back home. It was a whirlwind of a time, a roller coaster of emotions and saturated with lessons. I think I learned more about myself in those 19 days in America than I have in the rest of my life. However, recently I feel as though I have been sidetracked and almost reverted back to the person I was before I went to America, so I would like to recap on my time in the USA to refresh those lessons.

December has just completely flown by and the past few days have had me thinking about December and also the year 2014.

100 Days of Happiness, 91-100

Not only does today mark the 100th Day of my 100 Day Resolutions, but it also marks the completion and success of Blogmas and my final post of 2014! A couple of days ago, I found my notepad containing notes about participating in Blogtober and what I wanted to do for me 100 Day Resolutions and it feels like I only wrote it one month ago, not 100 days ago! I remember sitting on the sofa in the conservatory, curled up under my blanket while having a brainstorm. And now, here we are on the other side of it.

Is there anything out there to make time slow-down?! Anyways, here is my final Happy Days post.

Updating My Bucket List

I was looking through my Bucket List earlier and I realised that I had crossed off some of my aspirations without realising I had done so, so I thought I would write a post detailing a little more about some of the things I have accomplished over the past couple of months in terms of my Bucket List.
