I can't believe we've come to the end of 2015 already and tomorrow a whole new year will start! I always love this time of year, because its a chance to reflect on all the amazing experiences and moments had throughout the past year and a time to look ahead into the future.

Every year I make a 'New Year's Resolutions' list in the same little blue notebook that I've had for years now. I love looking back at the resolutions I made the previous year, and ticking off the ones I've achieved and laughing at the ones that I didn't even come close to achieving...('wishful thinking' most of the time)! There are a few resolutions that I always keep the same every year such as 'drink more water' or 'get my hair cut more regularly' and resolutions that are different every year depending on what's coming up or what I hope to do in particular such as 'pass my exams at university' or 'finish decorating my room'.

A few resolutions that I've written for 2016 consist of:
- Go on holiday with the girls
- Save up for a better camera
- Graduate from university
- Read more books
- Be more consistent with blogging
- Start driving again
- Organise my holiday photos into albums from 2015

I can safely say that 2015 has been one of the best years of my life....from turning 21, to volunteering in Africa for charity, to visiting amazing cities like Marrakech, Lisbon and Malaga and passing my second year of university and starting my third and final year. There have also been negative moments of course, which everyone experiences throughout life, but these have helped me to make important decisions and helped me to grow into more of the person that I want to be. One of the main things I realised this year, is that I no longer want to become a nurse after I graduate which is for many different reasons but mainly because it's just not right for me. But even though that is a hard decision to make, I'm still carrying on with my degree and completing it until the end, and hopefully I will find a career path that is right for me....maybe 2016 will lead me to that!

But for now, I'll leave you with a few of my favourite pictures from 2015, and I hope you all have the best New Year's Eve and an amazing 2016!! See you next year - (keep an eye out for lots of travel posts from my trips too seeing as you all enjoyed reading about my Malawi and Marrakech adventures)!
