It’s the day before New Year’s Eve and I’m sitting here, eager to write about year and all I can think of is “Wow, loads of dreams came true this year!”. From the places I’ve visited, to the people I’ve met to my personal achievements, it’s been a good year and I’m thankful for it. I won’t bore you with a long post but I’ll just list my 3 best moments of 2013. 3 is my number and given it was 2013, I thought it best to have 3 best moments, 3 dreams coming true!
1. Visiting Chicago.
I’ve said this a million times but my visit to the States was probably the highlight of my year. I’ve always wanted to visit America. As a child I was blessed to have visited so many places, but never America. The spur of the moment decision to Chicago with my dad was the best decision I made. Scared and excited, I will never forget that feeling when I got out of the taxi and took it all in. Cheers to my parents for this one, all credit for this dream coming true goes to them.
2. Uni Stuff.
Second dream is probably less exciting yet it’s very important to me. I don’t usually like to discuss school on here, given that it’s something quite serious and important to me. This year however a sort of big thing happened. I got to qualify for the next chunk of my degree and this was quite a challenge since a high average is required. I worked hard and I made it and that’s a dream come true for me. I made it happen for myself and for that I’m proud and happy with myself.
This is probably the area where I got the most surprises. My blog will be 2 in January however 2013 was the year I dedicated more time to it and woah, I can’t believe I’m here. Here is the place where I get people I barely know come up to me telling me they read something and loved it or quoting something I said and saying they love. Here is also the place where I got published in a local fashion magazine. It’s the place where I’m collaborating with another website other than my own. I honestly can’t believe this happened. Not only is this all a dream come true but it makes me feel like I’m in a dream. I love writing the fact that people are actually reading my posts is already amazing, let alone having all this other stuff happen. Thank you, everyone, this dream’s all your doing!
Bye 2013, you’ve been great!
PS I’m adding a song at the end, just as I used to do when I started out. Enjoy.
