2016 has been a massive roller coaster for everyone.
Don't deny it.
We took 2016 and made some majorly bad political decisions.
David Bowie died after an 18-month battle with cancer Jan. 10. He was 69.
Alan Rickman died Jan. 14 from cancer. He was 69
To Kill A Mockingbird” author Harper Lee died in her sleep Feb. 19 at the age of 89
There are many many more to be put on the list but this is going to be about my 2016.
I was offered my first job as an English teacher and they let me g two weeks later because they wanted someone experienced even though they knew I had 0 experience but weren't willing to train me because it was too costly.
I baked amazing muffins
My grandparents came to visit and we went for a meal in a restaurant / hotel
It's carnaval! The perfect excuse for me to put a onesie on and wonder around town knowing im not going to look a complete weirdo.
By this time I was working as a volunteer in a School and a babysitter to four sisters (ages 3-12) and apparently 1% fluent in Italian
My best friend came to visit for two weeks, we hadn't seen each other in 4 years
Started to get slightly interested in makeup.
I started using up the bath bombs I'd bought the year before on my trip to London
Went to the beach
My best friend came back and she stayed a little longer this time so we decided to go explore the island a bit.
(It's a dessert island so we found lots of sand)
May was the month I tried to go vegan, I lasted for about nearly three weeks until I could not resist the temptation of a Sunday Roast any longer.
I decided to do a lot of walking
Used Snapchat for a while
Went on long romantic walks with my dog only to discover a scrapyard
Tried and failed to make home made pizza
Did some more island exploring
Ended the month by stalking a stranger that looked hot
By June I had been offered and accepted a job as an English teacher on another island, I was to start in September.
But at the very begging of the month, before deciding on the job I was also trying to decide whether or not if I should instead go to Australia to be an Au pair or to the UK to be an English teacher.
I decided to accept the English teaching ob, not in the UK but in Gran Canaria, the island next door.
Therefor if anything went wrong I wouldn't be far from home.
So what did I do in June apart from interviews?
Passed the camera onto my returned best friend (shes a very skilled photographer as you can see)
By July I'd been blogging for a year, so I decided to take my family on holiday.
Stayed at a hotel for a night
time to celebrate!
Time to make my move!
Time to start my new life as an English teacher oh the joy!
By October I'd started to settle in, thought I'd be celebrating my birthday all alone for the first time ever but I didn't.
Went out for a birthday meal with friends I'd made at work
Then we had the clown epidemic
Aaand back to work
In November I spent the days...
Then saying ''Look how much weight I've lost!''
Started going out with friends I'd made at work
Had a few days off work at the beginning of the month so I decided to go and see my dad, we went to a market.
Didn't realize how much I'd missed Sunday roasts
Went to a fair
Went out with friends
Had my first business dinner
Did the Xmas shopping
Flew back to spend Xmas with the family
Happy new year!
