The Anti-Bucket List

Two thousand and sixteen for me; was a year of both personal growth and discovery. To say it was one of most testing periods of my life would be an understatement, so whilst the whole concept of starting a-new is very appealing, I have decided to defy tradition and gone on to compile a list of things I did achieve throughout the year.

From memory, Lauren Laverne called this 'The Anti-Bucket List' in January 2016's edition of GLAMOUR Magazine, dismissing all the silly things she says she should be doing and listing all the amazing stuff she'd already done - this is why I have decided to take a leaf out of L's book, there's nothing like blowing your own trumpet is there?

The Anti-Bucket List:

  • Matthew and I started dating in January 2016. 
  • I got my nose pierced.
  • I traveled to London/England for the first time,
  • Staying mainly in Kingston upon Thames and New Malden.
  • Matthew and I visited Killybegs in Donegal (The Slieve League Cliffs being the highlight).
  • I went blonde during the Summer holidays. 
  • I took my first train and plane trip this year. 
  • I saw G-Eazy, Marc E. Bassy and Nef the Pharaoh live in Brixton/London. 
  • I saw Oliver Heldens and Tiesto live at Belsonic in Belfast.
  • Matthew and I went to the ECS Championships in England, where we met NIP (Ninja's in Pyjamas). 
  • Matthew's family adopted Coco, she's a Cocker Spaniel / Poodle mix. 
  • I walked the Giants Causeway with Mum and Dad. 
  • I adopted a little black kitten for a while, we named her Poppy. 
  • I started baking in 2016 - surprisingly I've become a real whiz at making Fifteens, Rice Crispy Squares and Trifle. 
  • I made my first big purchase with the NIKON D7200. 
  • Matthew and I walked for Alzheimer's Society in Belfast, raising £527.32.
  • A few weeks after this, my sister and I completed AWARE NI's Mood Walk in Omagh. 
  • I set up my own business, after quitting my job spontaneously and it's been an experience all on its own. 
  • I completed my BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care and passed. 
  • I celebrated my twentieth birthday in September. Shout-out to Matthew's dad for baking the cake. 
  • I photographed a calendar for 'Support 2gether' - a post natal depression group,
  • I dropped 12 inches and 3lbs over Christmas. 
  • I was offered a job without interview - I took it.

What did you achieve in two thousand and sixteen?
