It’s shocking to think that 2019 has come to an end. This year has flown by and it doesn’t even feel like we’ve just seen the end of Christmas. 2019 has been a fairly difficult year all round, and I certainly feel as though my anxiety has taken a bit of a hit. From house drama to my stomach deciding it wanted to create a bit of a hassle for me, it hasn’t exactly been an easy year. But, it was the year I went to Disneyland, the year I got my first tattoo, and the year I went to FriendsFest, among other things, so it wasn’t all bad. Not only that, 2019 has brought with it a number of different lessons, and I thought I’d take a little lighthearted look at all the things I’ve learned this year. 

    1. I actually really like writing and I’d go as far as saying it’s what I want to do with my life

    2. It’s okay to take a break now and again

    3. Killing Eve is bloody fantastic

    4. PopSockets are a game changer

    5. Politics most certainly brings out the worst in the British public

    6. Anxiety doesn’t give a crap if it’s your birthday, panic attacks still happen regardless

    7. Lover by Taylor Swift is a bloody flawless album

    8. Buffets at Disneyland are literally the work of the devil – sneeze pasta anyone?

    9. The key to doing tequila shots is to avoid the salt

    10. Bodysuits aren’t that much of a ballache – as long as you buy one with poppers at the crotch

    11. Tattoos aren’t actually that painful – unless you get one on your foot

    12. Writing a letter to your younger self is actually a very therapeutic exercise

    13. A bar of soap genuinely lasts a lot longer than a bottle of shower gel #SaveTheTurtles

    14. Nothing will prepare you for how amazing the fireworks at Disneyland are

    15. Convincing the waiters in a restaurant that it’s your 21st birthday when it’s actually your 27th does wonders for your self esteem

    16. The blogging community is a wonderfully supportive place

    17. I am definitely NOT a rollercoaster person

    18. I actually quite like coffee, provided I have it with A LOT of sugar

    19. Nothing brings a country together like the Gavin & Stacey Christmas special
