2018: My Year in Review

life-is-an-adventure, 2018

What a year 2018 has been! It feels as though the past year has zoomed by in a flash; I've definitely packed a lot into the last twelve months. Despite that, I still feel as though it's important to stop for a minute and look back on my achievements of the last year.

This will be my fourth annual round-up post here on The Writing Greyhound and every year, I really enjoy remembering great memories and the best bits of the year. 2017 was a real high for me, but did 2018 manage to continue the upward trend? Let's find out!

Here are just a few of my personal highs from 2018:

  • My partner and I became homeowners
  • We adopted our beautiful cat, Winnie
  • I moved into a new job role at work, progressing my career
  • I learned a lot of practical skills around financing, managing, and maintaining a property
  • We were able to decorate our home exactly the way we wanted
  • I strengthened my relationships with family and friends
  • I treated my mum to a wonderful day out in London for a 50th birthday surprise
  • I attended some brilliant shows, gigs and events
  • I got to know a new town and the area around where I now live
  • My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful week in Snowdonia 
  • I read 26 books 
  • I attended two weddings and celebrated the happy couples' special days
  • My partner and I went on a short break in the Peak District
  • I attended my first event as a blogger
  • I went to my first YALC and met some amazing authors
  • I have been lucky enough to work on some fantastic brand collaborations 
  • I went to my first-ever hen party
  • I climbed Mount Snowdon
  • I met my biggest idol for the first time
  • I realised that life isn't always going to be smooth sailing, but that's okay
  • I was overwhelmed by the never-ending generosity of our friends, family and loved ones
So as we wave goodbye to another year, it's time to welcome the future with open arms. It's time to say a fond farewell to 2018 and look forward to everything that 2019 has in store!
