Interview with a Blogger | The Giggles of Life

29 Jan 2014


Hey Everyone!
Time for the second installment of 'Interview with a blogger' Remember if you would like to feature leave a comment or tweet me @DreamingAgain_
Today I am interviewing Michaela who blogs over at The Giggles of Life. Be sure to check her out. 
Right lets get to it! here are the questions I asked Michaela and her answers.
Enjoy!


1. What made you want to start a blog?

Well it was my friend who did a blog post first. And I had never really heard of many people doing them. When I read a few of the popular ones like ‘Sprinkle of Glitter’ and ‘Zoella' I was excited with the idea that maybe one day I’ll have a group of people that would enjoy and relate to my posts as well.
I love writing; I make my friends go, “Oh God” when they see the long messages that I leave for them. I have been writing diaries ever since I was 7 (to which they are so embarrassing.) I actually used to write the exact time I would wake up at, “8:06 am”.
So with my love for writing, I have a huge passion for photography… if I had a top-notch camera I’d prove my love. And I hold such a craving for travelling. You can see from my blog that I love taking pictures wherever I go… my family and I go on so many little vacations around Ireland, to lovely hotels, seaside's.
And that was the reason why I wanted to start a blog. I get to put down my memories that will be looked upon in the future and I get to share to those who carry the same interests as me.

2. If you could describe your blog in 3 words what would they be?

1) Quirky 2) Life 3) Personal

3. What quote do you try to live your life by?

Well I go by the same as my Mum, “Your health is your wealth”. Which is true. I would rather be healthy than rich.

4. What would you like to do/achieve in 2014?

To find new, undiscovered hobbies and interests. Like knitting or baking something new once a month. Like if I haven’t tried it how do I know on whether I’d like it. Also driving, I really want to get that sorted this year.

5. What's your favourite thing to do on a day off?

When everyone is away at work/school, I love to have my own relaxing day, catching up on blogs, emails, other social medias, drink lots of tea, catch up on You Tube and my tv shows, watch about 4/5 movies (I LOVE MOVIES) and take a relaxing bath with my playlist quietly playing in the steam and candle light (My favourite day sounds so lazy, but I wouldn't like to spend it on breaking into a sweat out rock climbing.)

6. Chinese food or  Italian food?

I have eaten more foods on the Chinese menu rather than the Italian menu, so yeah…. Chinese food. I get easily sick on pasta and pizzas. Too much is eugh for me.

7. What is your favourite thing about living in London?

There's a number of things really. I get to have my fresh start over. Meet new people and start my new life. Sounds exciting!
I feel more of an adult being here. I have the house to myself in the morning. So I drink tea and read blogs. Then I bring my coffee with me, walk for 25 minutes into College or the library. Have chitchat and laughter with the girls. I have such independence over here. It feels amazing. I can get the tube into London whenever I want, which is great if you want a day of shopping and looking around. So being independent (not relying on parents for anything) and feeling more of an adult. I do have my childish ways I guarantee but it’s about time I'm ‘growing up’.

8. What do you miss most from home?

I miss my Mums cuddles while having tea and cake beside the open fire, watching the chat shows (Graham Norton is our favourite) and watching films with my Dad and brother.

9. What is the most courageous thing you have done in your life?

The most courageous thing I've done was being there when my Gran passed away. She came home for 2 nights and I stayed with her. A lot of people would expect the most courageous thing I've done is moving over here. Not really, I've been used to being away from my Parents a lot as a child. But for people who have to say goodbye to someone, they usually run away. I didn't. Even though I didn't keep a straight face (crying mostly) I still stuck with her.

10. If you could spend one day as someone else, who would it be?

In fictional land I'd choose Katniss Everdeen from 'The Hunger Games Series'. She has yes a rough life but it's exciting and adventurous.
In the non-fictional world I'd pick Princess Kate. I'd like to see whether she feels like where she lives is home. I doubt she says, "Home sweet home". I'd love to know whether she gets in the door from a busy day of making speeches, and dives into her onesie and sprawls herself across the couch. *carrying on with my story*, The Queen would then pop her head inside the door, "Oh is that 'Big Brother' you're watching Kate? Indeed I never understood the message it tries to get across to the young people!" sounds like a whole day of fun to me. Plus Princess Kate has a sensual style of fashion that I love about her.

Now, here's a little post-script Michaela included. I don't know if she wanted me to put it up here too but I just think it's so sweet and shows what a lovely gal she is! It also shows how amazing blogging can be for meeting people and making friends!

"Hi Sinead,
Thank you so much for having me in your blog. I take it as an honour J I’m sorry if my answers are too long. I get a little carried away with typing/talking. I do hope to build our blogging relationship. It’s great how we can stay in contact. It’s nice to know bloggers such as yourself. Each of stress over College work, friends, personal life… and I like how I can relate to you that way. Plus you live in Ireland, so you use words like ‘craic’ and you take pictures of the countryside and I love seeing that. I get to see a bit of home every once in a while.
Looking forward to seeing Anna answers as well,
Thanks again sweetie,
Luv Michaela xxx"

Saturday Summary #3

26 Jan 2014



Hey Everyone!
How was your week? I hope it was amazing and full of smiles for you all!
So, how was my week? 
  • My week started off kind of bad, I heard something that hit me like a tonne of bricks! I'm not going to put it up here but it was pretty upsetting for me and definitely not a good way to start the week.
  • School was pretty stressful this week, one of my classes went absolutely awful, I had to stop teaching them and dish out detentions! My first years were pretty bad too with regards to disruption but I feel like I've built up a nice relationship with them where they really like me and I think they are all lovely (well most of them) I see them 7 times a week and therefore I find it so hard to punish them! I'm so worried about this, it's really a case of faking power/strictness until it turns out  you have it. As they say, 'fake it 'til you make it'. The whole situation has me really doubting myself and my capabilities. Also, I am still waiting on my inspection which has me a nervous wreck, argh!
  • On to the good stuff about the week now! I caught up with some old friends who I haven't spoken to in a while and we hit the town for the night :P just some pub'n and club'n but it was nice to see them after not seeing them in about a year and a half!
  • The best part of this week was making arrangements for my 21st Birthday! I am so excited. I decided to have a party in my house. I've booked a marquee, ordered catering, bought some really cool decoration, ordered the birthday cake, and sent out the invitations. One of my friends has even made up a playlist for the day - so sweet. I've also planned two nights out with friends. "Two?" I hear you ask?! well the first one will be two days before my birthday and will mostly be my brother, sister, their partners and some old friends from my area that I have known forever. That's going to be a more 'tame' night considering some of the guests will be over 30 (so old :P ) Gosh am I looking forward to that! The second night will be over a week after my birthday when I go back to university after this block of teaching practice, all of my uni friends will be back Galway, and I won't have any 9 am classes to worry about so that's going to be a hopefully very fun, and crazy night and I cannot wait to go out with all of my uni friends again who I haven't seen since before Christmas....eeeek!
  • I dyed my hair this week!!! I had ombre hair before and it was really light. I really liked it, I think blondish definitely suits me but I had my hair like that for about a year and felt like a change, I was sick of my super dark roots growing out and just felt like a richer colour again! here are the before and after pics :)
So that's basically been my week this week! I'm really enjoying these summary posts, it's fun to look back and try to remember anything that might be worth recording! Let me know if you did anything exciting this week in the comments. I shall be back next weekend with another summary, I hope to God I have my inspection by then so that I will be able to properly enjoy my birthday weekend woop woop!

Love Always,
Sinead

Interview with a Blogger | A Whole Lot of Chitty Chat

22 Jan 2014

Hey Everyone!
I decided to start a new series where I would interview different bloggers. If you would like to take part and feature in one of my future posts don't hesitate to leave a comment in this post or tweet me @DreamingAgain_. 
First up it's Anna from A Whole Lot of Chitty Chat very apt considering TODAY IS HER BIRTHDAY. Happy Birthday Anna, I hope you have a wonderful day.
Now, I shall delay no longer, lets see how Anna answered the questions I asked...



1. Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog as something to focus on, something to give my life purpose really. It's my little space to get out whatever thoughts I have really. But now I love that people read & comment, which makes people feel less alone (well I hope it does) :)

2. What are your favourite type of blog posts to write?
Without a doubt lifestyle ones, I love when people feel they can connect with me as a person. But I have recently tried my hand at a nail DIY kind of post which was quite interesting & very fun to do, not too sure how it will go down with readers but I usually seem to have that doubt.

3. What have you done in life that you are most proud of?
I'd genuinely have to say learning to drive. For most people it just seems so easy, just like most things seem very simple to some. Me on the other hand, complete opposite. This time two years ago I never thought I'd be able to learn to drive, I'd struggle somedays to be in the car for 10 minutes let alone an hour with a stranger. But now I'm weeks away from my test, crazyyyyy!

4. Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?
I genuinely have no idea, life is so unpredictable! I'd really like to think I'd be in a steady, comfortable & permanent job..heres hoping! I'd also like to be visiting more places, I'm a complete home bird. 

5. If you could speak to a large crowd of people what advice would you give them?
To always try & be positive, no matter the situation & always be the best version of you possible! :)

6. If you could live in any other country where would it be and why?
Like I said, I'm a home bird so I don't even look at other places in the UK nevermind other countries :/ sorry :)

7. Out of all the people you personally know, who do you most admire/want to be like and why?
My mum, without a doubt! Even more so after kicking cancers ass this year! She is so flippin brave & strong..a real trooper! I just totally look up to her & admire her, she isn't just my mum she genuinely is my best friend! I love you my mum loaddssssss! :D 

8. What song makes you happy when you hear it?
Ooooh gosh, now you are asking a toughy! There are so flippin many! I really, really like can we dance by the vamps :) that would be in my top list of happy songs :) You've totally just given me an idea for a blog post, thanks Sinead :)

9. When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
I don't remember at all wanting to be anything when I grew up, is that weird? :/

10.  What are your plans for today?
 I'm writing this at almost 6pm, the day has pretty much gone but for the rest of the night I'm going to catch up on blogging related business, read some magazines, listen to some music & just chill :) aaaaaahhhhhh!

And there we have it! I can't wait to see what blog post I have given Anna an idea for! 
I hope you're enjoying getting to know these amazing bloggers in my series.
 I'm really loving dedicating blog posts to people. I think we can write about ourselves so much in our blogs (which is fine, it is OUR blog) but sometimes it's really nice to recognise and appreciate others and maybe make their day a bit better. 
So head on over to Anna's blog, leave a comment, tell her happy birthday and spread some love.

The DMC tag

20 Jan 2014

Hey Everyone!
I made this DMC (deep meaningful conversation) tag because I am the queen of all procrastinators and I felt like getting down and deep with you guys! So here are the 10 questions I came up with and my answers :) I hope you like this tag.



  • How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
I would probably think I am older than twenty just because I'm not crazy about some things that other twenty year olds like such as going out every weekend and stuff! Don't get me wrong, I like to go out but just not as much as everyone else my age seems to. I enjoy chilling at home just as much. 

  • If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
Hmm I don't know, I can't decide exactly what but it would be something where I get to be creative, involving some kind of art, maybe photography or interior designing. But I can see myself getting bored of those jobs quick.
  • What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back?
I would love to travel more, maybe spend a summer working in the states. What's been holding me back? Funds!! and also I am kinda turned off the idea when I see the living conditions of J1ers (who are people who get a working visa in the US from uni) I like my comforts. 
  • If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow this person to be your friend?
Hmm I found this question interesting. Sometimes I think things about myself that I would hate if a friend said to me and I definitely wouldn't keep them as a friend for very long. But I am not that harsh on myself overall, just every now and again I get really angry with myself and think I am useless when I don't do any uni work or I stay in bed too long. Sometimes I just thing I'm such an uncool person who can't do anything right and imagine if someone actually said that to me....! Definitely makes you think that you should be nicer to yourself. 
  • What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
Hate. I think if people didn't hate each other the world would be so much better. There would be no wars, no murders no cruelties done to others. I really think that if people remembered the quote 'do unto others what you would have done unto yourself' the world would be a much better place. 
  • If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
I probably wouldn't bother spending so long in school and college, I'm 20 now, that would be half my life spent in school/university and if I was to retire at 30 or 35 it really wouldn't be worth my while whatsoever, so I would probably just settle for any job (it will only be for 10-15 years afterall) and just have a good time! probably would have a family and be married at twenty though haha. 
  • You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire.  They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend.  The criticism is distasteful and unjustified.  What do you do?
In all honesty, I wouldn't start an argument with them or say that their opinion is wrong and they are being unfair. I would just tell them that I disagree and I would give them my own positive opinions on the person and why I like them. 
  • Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
A joyful simpleton of course! If I was a simpleton I wouldn't know that I was stupid. And if I'm happy and joyful what else matters? no amount of knowledge that's for sure. 
  • Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
It would be really sad but I'd probably choose lose all of my old memories if it came down to. Even remembering some things I'm like NO I want to keep that memory but after all it is the past and it's the future that we should live for. How depressing would life be if you knew you were never going to make new memories? what would the point of it be?!
  • What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
I don't actually think I would do anything differently. I'm not going to say "oh I would get totally wasted when I go out" because I still have some self respect. I think if no one was going to judge me I would just be a lot more confident, I wouldn't be afraid to be me and say whatever I want to say to people and not be afraid that they might think it's a stupid thing to say. I definitely think I hold myself back a bit when I'm with people because I'm afraid they'll judge me.

There we go! I'm going to tag some people to do this tag. I hope you all get a chance to do it and if you do be sure to comment below with the link so I can check it out!

I tag:

Saturday Summary #2

19 Jan 2014

Hey Friends!
No I am not gone cray cray I know today is Sunday not Saturday and I was going to call this post 'Sunday Summary' but last weeks was called 'Saturday Summary #1' and the whole number issue just annoyed me because I am slightly OCD so I am calling this 'Saturday Summary #2' either way, it's the same thing! YEAH! So it's Saturday on my blog.

source
I was not in the mood to write a blog post yesterday. It was just one of those horrible days where you have no energy to do anything and all you want is some junk food to comfort-eat your life away. But in general the week was pretty good and I thought it would be a shame not to record it just because the day I was meant to record it wasn't so great.
 So here's my week in summary - 
  • Have still been pretty exhausted this week, had a nap pretty much everyday, which sucks! I want to be energetic and motivated and able to get work done without needing a sleep in the afternoon. Heeelp!
  • Eating wise, I haven't exactly found that super healthy lunch that I was looking for last week. I went to the shop during my break on Monday and there was no ready made salads which I was looking for so I got a wrap with some chicken, peppers, salsa and other stuff (it was yummy) but probably not the healthy thing I was looking for!
  • I have been enjoying teaching practice for the most part, I really enjoy chatting with everyone in the staffroom and when we spotted a mouse everyone's reactions was pretty hysterical. In the classroom though I've been feeling a bit 'eeeh what do I do' when it comes to discipline which concerns me because my inspector will probably notice that my classroom management isn't so great when she comes to visit. I did give detention on Friday though which made me feel a bit better (that probably sounds mean but many of them have deserved it before and I was always kind of scared or reluctant to punish them, I have no idea why, so I am proud that I plucked up the courage) 
  • I went to help with the school musical 'Oliver' on Thursday and Friday night. I was doing their make-up and selling raffle tickets at the interval. It was so much fun. The show was fantastic and the turn-out was unbelievable! I was well-impressed.
  • Booked a hair appointment for next Saturday to get a cut and colour, cannot wait because my roots are HORENDOUS! I'm going back to my original colour which is a very dark brown. My hair has been a light brown / blonde ombre for so long that I'm super excited to see how it turns out.
  • Started thinking about making plans for my 21st birthday which is February 2nd, slightly freaking out because it's only two weeks away and I have no idea what I'm going to do for it!
That's pretty much all that happened this week that's note-worthy! Quite an average week overall! Do you guys have any tips for staying energised and not wanting to nap as soon as I get home? 
How was your week? Do anything exciting?

Soap and Glory | 'Smoulder Kohl' Eyeliner

15 Jan 2014


Hey Everyone!
Time for my third instalment in my Soap and Glory cosmetic reviews! 
This time I will be telling you about their 'Smoulder Kohl' eye-liner. This looks just like your typical Kohl eye-liner but for me, it is the best I have ever used. 
It is such a pure opaque black which is great, I find a lot of eye-liners can be slightly grey or come out kind of pale but not this one. It applies so easily as you really don't have to press very hard on it when applying, it goes on very smoothly. I use this on my waterline and it defines the eyes wonderfully. My favourite thing about this eye-liner is it is water proof, therefore it stays in place way longer than any I have ever used before. It looks as good 5 hours after application as it does when first applied and I think that is very rare in a kohl eye-liner. Despite being quite soft it does not wear down quickly at all and should last a few months. 
At only €6.50/£5.00 this is worth every cent and I definitely will be repurchasing it. 
My new HG kohl eye-liner.

Saturday Summary #1

11 Jan 2014


Hey everyone, how are you all doing? I thought I would try and start a new series called 'Saturday Summary' where I would, as the name suggests, summarise my week! I literally just thought of this now on a Saturday night so hopefully the following weeks I will have more pictures to share. I took, like, no pictures this week! Anyways, I will just fill you in on how my week was. 

  • The picture shows a flood down the road from my house. It was caused by crazy rain and storms the previous weeks but this week it has retracted in from the road, thank God! I wasn't enjoying having to take a de-tour.
  • Went back to teaching practice this week. Was a bit sad to see the end of Christmas, but I was being very lazy and felt pretty useless so it is good to be back. I was in Uni before Christmas and hadn't been in school since the beginning of November so I was a bit nervous to go back to my classes but it already feels like I have never left.
  • Starting at 9 am every single day really took it out of me! I am in no way used to that. I had to have a nap every day this week and I've just felt exhausted and a bit rubbish. I'm really hoping that next week I have more energy and motivation.
  • I've been trying to eat healthier lunches this week. I am SO sick of sandwiches. It hasn't really gone very well, next week I think I'm going to go shopping and pick up some healthy bits. Any suggestions for a healthy, yummy and energising lunch?
  • I have been really enjoying being back with my three friends who are doing the same course and are on teaching practice with me. We have some good and fun chats in the staffroom everyday and it feels lovely because we are all there to support each other. 
  • I am missing my other college friends though who are on teaching practice all over the country and are pretty far away, we message each other all the time though. I am just really thankful that I have 11 great friends who are all going through exactly what I'm going through, we can share stories and experiences and it just makes the whole teaching thing a little less lonely. 
  • One thing that really made me smile this week were my nieces and nephew. One of my nieces came for a sleepover on Friday night and I had a good chuckle when she called a permanent marker a 'pregnant marker' hehe. My 18 month old Nephew was here today and I spent a good half hour dancing to Katy Perry with him.  
So there's my week! I feel like I've just been exhausted for most of it. I hope next week I have more energy. Do any of you have tips on building up energy and not always being tired?

Soap and Glory | 'Sexy Mother Pucker' Gloss Sticks

7 Jan 2014

Hey Everyone!
OK I got a lot of Soap and Glory cosmetics over the Christmas so expect lots of reviews on them in the coming month or so. First up is the Soap and Glory 'Sexy Mother Pucker' gloss sticks. These have been a huge deal for beauty fanatics all year so I was really excited to try them out! I got three of them in the shades 'Nudest', 'Fuschia-ristic' and 'Plum Jam'.

 

Nudest is, as the name suggests, a nude colour. It is the perfect nude as it's not too light and doesn't make you look dead. It really doesn't add much colour to your lips at all, it just make them look glossy, moisturised and give a 'your lips but better' look. I love to wear this for a casual look.
Fuschia-ristic, is a really nice fuschia shade, to me it is the perfect pink! The colour is not too opaque as it is just a gloss stick. 
Plum Jam is my favourite. It is a lovely deep red but not as intense and as scary as a red lipstick. Definitely a good choice if you want to work the red lip trend but on a more subtle level.


Overall, I really like these gloss sticks. They go on so smoothly. They feel really moisturising and are in no way drying. They have a slight taste and smell to them which I usually hate in a lip products, but these ones are quite nice and don't bother me at all. They give a lovely 3D shine to the lips and the colours are beautiful and natural. Finally, these last quite a while on the lips, obviously not as long as a lipstick or a stain but that's to be expected. The only thing I don't like about them is the can feel slightly sticky after a while. 
Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend these to anyone who hasn't already tried them, they have become a staple for my everyday make-up looks.

Becoming a Teacher | Update

4 Jan 2014


Hey Everyone!
Way back in August of last year I wrote Time flies | My thoughts on becoming a teacher and in the comments a couple of you asked me to put up another post in a couple of months letting you know how things were going, so that's what this is!

When I wrote that blog post it was before I had started the course at all. Since then I have learned SO much and I really have been having the time of my life. I know that in the future I am going to look back on my life and see this as my best year, the year when everything happened, it's like the seed to the rest of my life. Anyways, I digress. Sorry about that! 

In August, I worried that I wasn't mature enough and grown up enough to take on the role as a teacher. At that stage I hadn't really interacted with many teachers on a personal level therefore I didn't know how normal, flawed, and sometimes crazy and immature they can also be.

Now, all of my closest friends are also student teachers. I have seen them teach, they are amazing and they definitely all have the qualities of an excellent teacher. But I have also seen them in a much more unprofessional manner. I have seen them drunk off their faces, I have heard some dirty jokes from them, or things that I would have previously thought teachers would never say! I have seen them act like complete teenagers! I have even seen them make-out with their boyfriends/girlfriend (and sometimes strangers haha) But hey 'they're just student's' I thought, they're young like me, they're not 'proper' teachers yet. 

Then during my teaching practice I have interacted with some 'proper' teachers some of whom used to teach me and it has amazed me how different they are in the staffroom. I was actually shocked when I heard my old English teacher swear and learnt that he sneaks out of the school grounds to smoke. I have heard many, lets just say, 'interesting' conversations between teachers in the staffroom. I have learnt that one of the, what I thought was a scary teacher, is a complete prankster in the staffroom (throwing a basket of paper on top of another teacher and the likes) and I have heard them say things about their students that I never thought they would say but it really made me laugh. 

So one of the main things I have learnt since that post back in August is that I am mature enough to be a teacher. I don't need to be some kind of super perfect, sophisticated robot. Nobody is. We are all human. I am fully capable of being a responsible, professional adult as well as also just being my crazy 'young,wild,free' self.

I think teachers are slightly schizophrenic.
 For example one of my closest friends is a total sweetheart in real life, so quiet and timid but fun. But his description of himself as a teacher and the punishments he uses - you would not believe this person could be so strict! 

Notice I said 'real life' I think that's funny.
 I definitely feel that teaching can be just like acting, and I have been told by people who are in the job for decades that you just have to find 'your teacher face' 'your teacher voice' 'your teacher self' it is all a performance. You can then let the 'true' you shine through once you know the students respect you. 

So after being in college and becoming best friends with other student teachers as well as being out in my old school on teaching practice and realising how normal and fun the teachers I knew as a student actually are, I am a lot less worried about if I am grown up enough and professional enough to be a teacher yet. 
Of course I am still learning how to create my 'teacher' persona and put on the 'performance', hell sometimes I laugh at my students when I really should be telling them off, but it is a work in progress and it's really exciting. 

I already feel like I am two people. The person I am in the classroom who is (I like to think) responsible, authoritative, professional, knowledgeable, passionate, respectable and hopefully kind and approachable. Then I am this other person who stays up way too late, spends way too much time online, who's room is a mess, worries about boys and all that shit, goes out clubbing and gets drunk, takes selfies and does heaps of immature stuff. And that is totally OK with me because I now realise that none of them are perfect, it doesn't mean I can't be an amazing teacher.

My Hopes for 2014

1 Jan 2014


Hey Everyone!
It's the first day of 2014, crazy! 
I never really make proper new year resolutions because lets face it, we usually have forgotten about them come mid-January. 
I thought I would do a quick post about my hopes for 2014 though, something to refer to through the year and (hopefully) look back on on December 31st when I know what has happened. 
I have NO idea what this year will hold for me, the future seems very uncertain. But I remember this time last year feeling exactly the same, I was finishing my undergrad and had no idea what I would be doing come September (I was pretty sure I wouldn't get the grad course I applied for, but turns out I did!).
Now this year, in May I will be finishing my hdip (teacher training) and I really will be done with university. I wonder what I will do then. I honestly don't know if I will move abroad to Canada or the UK or somewhere or if I will find a job here in Ireland or at least some sort of work.
I wonder what kind of new people I will meet, God knows I met some amazing friends in 2013 that I never thought I would meet. 
I have no idea what's going to happen and that is really scary but the mystery is also kind of exciting. 

Here are a few things I want to achieve/do this year:
♥ Nurture my friendships
♥ Get a job 
♥ Go blonder (this is a shallow one :P )
♥ Pass Uni and qualify as a teacher
♥ Become more confident
♥ Meet new people that change my life for the better
♥ Be more outgoing
♥ Get a car of my own
♥ Use the internet less (I check facebook way too much haha)
♥ Be more independent 
♥ Appreciate the little things
♥ Be happy
Quick note to December 2014 me - If you don't manage to achieve all of these don't beat yourself up about it, 2015 is another chance.
