It’s been a while since I’ve posted (again!). This semester has just been all go, and it’s gone too fast. I’m done college in just over a month! At the minute, I’m up to my eyeballs with assignments and readings to do for college, but I also want to get back into the swing of things with my blog. I love a good birthday post- last year I did 19 things I learned in 19 years as well as a Birthday Outfit Diary.
Obviously, I wanted to do something a little different this year. I’m 20 (I’m still not fully accepting of it!), and I was thinking what have I achieved in the last 20 years?
Won an All- Ireland title
Completed school, and got into my first University choice
Went on a cable cart!
Moved to Prague all by myself
Took up a sport
Learned how to cook
Went to a festival!
Saw the Coronas live (before they were big, woo!)
Met Katie Taylor (twice!)
Joined Netflix, and actually watched TV shows (a silly addition, but something I didn’t think I’d see!)
Improved my makeup ‘skills’
Became a qualified boxing judge!
Found my independence
Learned to accept the things I cannot change
Been published in a newspaper (got the front page story before)
Set up a blog I’m proud of
(kinda) Learned how to budget
10 Goals for the Next 10 Years
Go to a professional fight night where Anthony Joshua is boxing
Become a qualified journalist/ land the perfect job!
Become a boxing referee
Go to the Darts Championships in the Alexandra Palace
Box for Ireland
Open a Savings account
Completely stop caring about people that don’t return the care
Improve a skill
I remember when I was becoming a teenager, and how excited I was, and now I’m completely gone from my teens. I know 21 is the ‘big one’, but there’s something bittersweet about saying goodbye to the ‘teen’ in my age.
