Dear Diary || April ’17

Hello everyone! I feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve sat down and written a blog post just because I’ve wanted to; obviously I’ve been working in my blog series with Jodie (you can read more here) but I haven’t really just sat and written about me, for me. So I decided to do a ‘Dear Diary’ type of post, which I hope I continue monthly as a sort of catch up with you. This will allow me to be completely honest and raw with you, letting you all know what’s been going on during the previous month, what I hope to achieve in the following month, what my goals and plans are, what I’m struggling with, and mostly, just how I’m doing in general.

When I look back on those couple of years I remember pain and misery, but I also have lots of new memories from that time in my life, lessons learned, and all in all, I met new people who very quickly became a big part of my life. One friend I spoke about was Sophie, my best friend from sixth form but the other person I didnโ€™t mention was my boyfriend, Angus. We met at the end of October 2012 and we decided to give things a go on 10th November. 3 and a half years later (nearly!) we are still together, stronger than ever.
