New year’s revolutions

Back in January 2014, I set out a list of what I wanted to have achieved by the end of the year. The blog fell into disrepair, so I never got the chance to look back over them until now.

Where HAVE you been? An update and an apology

Before that, I moved out from home. For good.

I’ve done some work experience in magazines across Dublin. Some pretty prestigious ones, at that.

I still work in the airport, and I still have quite small feet.

I promise, as much as my life allows, that I won’t let this fall to the side again. Because, I’ll be honest, I’ve missed it. If I didn’t have the blog, who else would listen to what’s going on in my head.
