On Wednesday 3rd December, I graduated from my master’s degree. It was a year of laughter, love, stress, tears and hard work. But more than that, it was probably the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done, in more ways than one. I won’t lie to you – it was more work than my three years at my undergraduate degree combined. Over ten exams, a 28 page magazine, two group projects and articles written by the dozen. Overall though, I probably learnt more and grew more as a person during this one single year than any other time.
One of the hardest things in life is admitting to ourselves that something has to change. The part that's getting us down and making us unlike ourselves. I know some people don't like change, but I guess you can call this more of an alteration. Once you've made the decision, the rest is easy. How do I know? Because I made that decision.
November Goals Review
1. Get Christmas sorted [done] - Picture the scene. It's Saturday. You're going to the Trafford Centre. And you completely blast Christmas shopping. Yep, we did it! When you go with the right mindset, you've got a list and you take your time, shopping at this time of year can be really enjoyable. It was great and I can't wait to wrap everything we got.
If you don't follow these bloggers already, you really should. Collecting and writing these posts each month really makes me realise just how amazing the blogging community is. The fact that each of us can come up with so many unique ideas for content on a regular basis truly is brilliant. December will be a quiet month so I'll be taking a break from this post until the end of January. But I'm pretty sure everyone is going to kick start the new year with style and a bang. So take a well deserved break this Christmas, catch up on your favourite blogs and add some more to your feed. This is the content I've been loving this month...
Recently I've stumbled across some pretty incredible creatives. These people are not only great writers - they're helpful too. Even more than that, they know you. They're somehow magically in tune with their readers. One scroll through their recent posts had me signing up to their newsletters on the spot - and there wasn't even a pop up. I don't think you should miss out on these, which is why I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Well, ten of them actually.
