Isn’t it so satisfying when a new month starts on a Monday? I can’t believe that there are two months left of this year, where has the time gone?! I remember the end of last year so clearly as if it were yesterday.

Roughly 45 days ago, I was preparing to leave for uni and 45 days later, I work at ASOS. Bet you weren’t expecting that. A few weeks ago, I decided that if I was going to take a gap year then I needed to gain new experience and one way I could do this was by quitting the job I've had since I was 16 and starting somewhere new. I applied for anything and everything, I had an interview for a new bar opening nearby and an interview for ASOS, I heard back from the bar interview before ASOS and I nearly went for it then the next day, I got a callback from ASOS.

Travelling is not the main focus of my gap year but I have some travel plans for the year ahead. At the end of next summer, I'm going interrailing alone around Europe for 10 days. I know travelling alone can be quite daunting but I'm excited. I’ve kept this a little quiet but I'M GOING TO NEW YORK in December 2019 to celebrate my 20th birthday. I have always wanted to go to New York and originally, I was going to wait until my 21st but that’s just too far away and I couldn't wait any longer. 

I'm terrified of heights but I've agreed to do a sponsored skydive in March. Some may call me stupid but Will Smith said that the best things in life are placed on the other side of terror and for that reason, I am going to push my fear.
