5 Things I’ve conquered & 5 Things I Still Want To Do In 2016 | Blogmas 6

Hey guys!

I was watching YouTube rewind (have you watched it already?) and thought how 2016 was a strange year.

Trump got elected, dab was a thing, pen pineapple apple pen went viral and the water bottle challenge was every.fucking.where. Instagram was filled with makeup “hacks” that made makeup look like something out of a science fiction movie. Facebook almost went dead and PewDiePie reached 50 million subscribers on YouTube so he’s gonna delete his channel. I’m assuming you’re an adult so pardon my French but 2016 was a fucked up year.

However, for me, it was one of the best years ever. I’ve overcome so much of my issues without even realising it. This is not a “well the year is ending so I gotta post something about it” kind of post. I’m just genuinely proud of myself and that’s something I haven’t been in a long time. So here you go, 5 things I’ve conquered this year, and 5 things I still want to do.


What I’ve conquer:

1 – I pulled myself to go and learn how to drive. After losing my bestfriend in 2010 to an accident I never thought I would be able to drive properly but my instructor says I’m a natural and I’m just so proud!

2 – I’ve started this blog. I’m so grateful for this decision because this blog gave me so much already! I have had it for 6 months now (It’s 6 months today actually!!). It made me get to know some of my good friends, gave me so much self-confidence and confidence in my abilities and gave me you guys which are so important to me.

3 – I started studying Marketing which is something I really wanted to do.

4 – I got nicer. And I mean this in the best way possible, but I just got nicer! I can get along with people so much better than before and I think that’s something so important for us as people to do.

5 – I’m overcoming my body issues. Body dismorphia (seeing yourself different that you actually are. Eg: Seeing yourself fat when you’re actually skinny. Seeing one aspect of yourself exaggerated and feel grossed out about it) is something that was born with me, but this year I’m really kicking it’s ass. There’s still days where it comes to haunt me, but I’m so much better at just telling it to fuck off. I promise to talk about this another time but if you feel this way know you’re beautiful and those voices are nothing.

Now, I think I’ve accomplished a lot so far in this year. More that I ever though possible. And even though it may seem small steps to you, they’re huge to me. But I still want to do some things in 2016 (if that’s possible!):

1 – I really want to reach 6000 followers on Instagram (I’m a little over 4000 atm).

2 – I want to finish my marketing classes being top class (so far so good).

3 – I want to work with some more companies in great content for the blog.

4 – I want to get more organized (I’m struggling to do so atm).

5 – And finally, I want to start my YouTube channel.

I don’t know if I’m going to be able to do any of this, but I’ll try my best.
