Bloody hell, when did 2018 happen?
I'm coming atcha here with some deep autumn photos since that's currently all I've got, but since they are EXTRA pretty, I don't feel y'all will mind. On with the post...
I think I only posted the other day that I probably wasn't going to do a roundup post for 2017, but it turns out I'm a creature of habit so here we are!
Currently, life feels no different to 2017, but the beginning of the year always has an odd feeling for me. It's exciting, as there is so much potential, but also a bit nerve-wracking. With all that's happened in the last few years in the world, what on earth is 2018 going to bring?
2017 was mostly a good year for me personally. I've found myself moving into not one, but two jobs. Yes, that may seem a little mad, but it's been the way it's worked out and it's landed me in an ideal place for the future. It almost feels surreal looking back to where I was in January to now. The company I work for are a lovely bunch of people and I couldn't ask for anything more. It's a bizarre feeling, to actually enjoy your job. After so many years in retail, it still takes me by surprise that you can actually like working. Like, who knew?
I also published research this year for the first time (link here
). I did it because I felt my masters' thesis was interesting, but actually, the feedback and the usefulness of having published research has really helped with future doctorate applications. The concept of going for the doctorate is still absolutely terrifying, but the idea of being Dr Witty is also too bloody tempting. That's on the back burner for now.
