LIFE | Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017



2016. What a year! While it was unfortunately a very dramatic, terrifying, and sad year for the world in politics, violence and global issues, I myself had a fantastic year. It was packed with many ups rather than downs. 
I learned, changed and experienced a lot



Above is my video summing up 2016 on my YouTube channel - it is also my new channel trailer. I've been wanting to make one for ages, and I have finally put one together. Make sure to watch it!

Here are 2016's highlights...


- I met Zoella - best ten seconds of my life.
- I played Patty Simcox in my school musical "Grease", which was so much fun!
- I attended the Swatch event in Soder + Ko.
- I saw All Time Low live, again.
- I went to Walk the Moon's concert.
- I took part in a computer science course for a week.
- I took part in my first Model United Nations competition.
- I did work experience in a primary school.
- I saw Wolf Alice live.
- I visited Ethiopia - the trip of a lifetime.
- I did work experience in a hospital (I now know for sure I don't want to be a doctor.)
- I was a named patron for the opera The Barber of Seville.
- I went to Bry's gig and met him as well as Orla Gartland.


- I turned sixteen.
- I completed fourth year / transition year.
- I walked the last 100km of the Camino de Santiago.
- I did a two week French course in Dublin.
- My friends introduced me to Geocaching.
- I went to Craic Con (will definitely go again next year!)
-I holidayed in Greece with my family - Mykonos and Athens.
- I fell in love with Pokemon Go... for a solid week.
- I spent three weeks in the Gaeltacht, agus bhain mé an taitneamh as an cúrsa!


- I went for a big change and cut my hair short.
- I entered fifth year, and I am enjoying it (it is a huge jump from TY!)
- I attended the Magpie Magazine Launch.
- I saw Against the Current live.
- My Halloween was... interesting.
- I participated in two more Model United Nations.
- I visited my brother on his Erasmus year in Nice, France.
- I went to Bastille's concert.
- Ice skating!
- I was an elf at my school bazaar.
- Christmas was wonderful.

And here we are.
2017.

There are plans and I have hopes and dreams for this year to come, yet I hope to just learn to live in the moment.
No major resolutions (other than to try and get more fit because that's a life goal).
