2016 in Review of The Average Gurl

Blogging VS People-2.png

Hello everyone,

I can’t believe that this is the last post of the year! It’s crazy that 2016 has gone so fast because it feels like yesterday I was having ice-cream on new years eve. So I thought that this was the perfect opportunity to do a 2016 in review.

First I’d like to do share my new years resolution but before I do that I want to see if I’ve accomplished last years resolutions. I did a 2015 in review last year were I wrote my resolutions.

Personal Year OverView

New years resolution (2016)

  • I’m just gonna leave the people I don’t like anymore in 2015. My goal: stay away from them. I’ve definitely done this
  • Try to be less lazy. Sadly this one hasn’t changed. I procrastinate from doing any sort of work
  • Upload better posts on my blog. Personally, I believe I have achieved this because I’ve been putting A LOT more effort.
  • Try new things and get a lot more out of my comfort zone. I’m so proud of myself for doing this because my confidence has for sure gone up this year.

I made sure to do achievable resolutions and I think I did pretty well this year as i completed 3/4.

2016 was a very debatable year and I don’t really know how to describe it. But one thing for sure that a big highlight was the growth of my blog.

The one and only resolution which I have for 2017 is to

Not procrastinate and get my homework done. And to try stay organised

because when I see a big load of homework or revision I tend to laze about. I hope to change that next year. Now that’s my only resolution for the year, it should be a lot more easier for me to achieve it.
