Welcome back to another monthly update (which I managed to miss in November and December 😬).
January was a crazy month. I became an “adult”, started working full time, and started a few new ventures. Overall, it was a very enjoyable month, with lots of great moments.
So, New Year. Pretty chill, really fun. Hanging out with my bestie (😂) and watching movies. And then a trip to Hanmer Springs with some awesome people, and though I was exhausted by the end of it all, it was a nice break. (If you’re going to NZ, go to Hanmer, it really is worth the hype!!).
On the 9th I turned 18,which is pretty surreal, though a lot of fun. Again, my birthday was pretty chill (you can read about it in a post I wrote) but truly fun. 😊 I don’t feel particularly different, though a bit concerned that I can now vote!! (😬).
I started learning French as of last Wednesday, which has been a gap year goal of mine for a good while. I love languages and I feel that French whilst hard would be a cool one to know!! It was really fun, and I’m really proud of myself for going to it, because trust me it took a big kick at my anxiety to get me there! If I can do it, trust me you can too!! Doing things by yourself is super rewarding, and means you meet a whole different set of people from when you are with your friends!
I’ve had a lot of fun hanging out in town with my friends , and though we don’t see each other as often as in school, the quality has remained. I’m so lucky to have such an awesome bunch of people around me. I even introduced friends from different parts of my life to each other, as well as my brother. 😊
So overall, January was a month of change, but the best sort!! Though I have to say, I’m very excited to start getting in to autumn!!!!
How was your January? What are your goals for next month? What did you get up to? I’d love to know!!
Until next time,
