2016 has been a challenging year for many reasons- Brexit, Trump and the deaths of several inspirational people. However for me 2016 has been one of the best years of my life and I wouldn't change it for anything.
At the beginning of the year I was single, lonely and just a bit down with life in general but now on the last day of 2016 my life is completely different. I wanted to write this blog post not only for me to look back on but as a reminder to those that needed it that your life can change in the blink of an eye.
In February I went to London for the weekend with my sister and my best friend to see Jess Glynn. I had been on tinder for a while before but never thought anything would come of it, however that weekend was when I first started talking to Scott. We honestly spoke non stop that weekend and I've never clicked like that with someone right from the start, it was so spooky.
We went bowling for our first date a month later and it was safe to say that I knew he was special from the beginning. On our second date he'd met my family and only a few months later I'd met his and it honestly felt like we'd known each other forever. I know it's cliche but the rest is history.
From just chilling at his flat to going on holiday together to Portugal the time we have spent together this year has been amazing. I mean it has been hard with the distance between us but when something means so much nothing should get in the way.
I also finished placement this year and moved back to Bournemouth to finish my degree. Whilst being there I have established some new, lifelong friendships. As much as I love being at uni I am so excited to finish and start the next chapter of my life with my best friend.
Thank you to everyone who has been part of my 2016 and heres to an equally amazing 2017!
