Happy New Year everyone! Hopefully you all had a safe and fun New Years Eve and are excited to see what 2016 will bring.
I personally had an eventful 2015 – I went to Rome, where I’ve been wanting to go since I was little, and Berlin. I saw over ten (possibly twenty) different comedians, plays and musicals in London. Most importantly, I graduated university and got my first “grown up” job!
Due to it being my final year of University, I set myself a lower target of 40 books to read throughout 2015. I manged to read (including some children’s books) 49 books!
