“HAPPY NEW YEAR!” Everyone around me screamed, hugging or kissing each other. My friend Patsy and I gripped onto each others hands cheering as we reached up into the mass of balloons and confetti that rained down on us.
I danced my way into the new year with my best friend. Smiles plastered on our faces and covered head to toe in glitter. This is going to be an AMAZING year! I told myself.
Of course, it felt slightly less amazing during the 2 hour wait for a bus back home (which terminated early so we had to fork out an extra tenner for an uber!) but nonetheless, I’m SO EXCITED about 2018 and everything I have planned for it.
I’ll go more into resolutions and goals for this year in tomorrows post but I have to say that I honestly feel like a whole new person. My face hurts from all the smiling, I feel motivated and determined. I KNOW it’s going to be a great year!
If you have been on my blog before, you will have noticed that along with the new year, comes a new blog! I’ve bought my domain so I am now officially Parchmentandpencils.com instead of Parchmentandpencils.Wordpress.com and you should no longer be spammed with stalkery adverts. I’ve also completely changed the look and layout of the blog so now, if you’re interested in a specific kind of post topic, you can just choose from the new tab bar.
On the sidebar, you can see a little bit of information on me along with an email address for which you can contact me. You can also see what I’m currently reading along with links to my social media platforms (which I hope you’ll follow me on!)
I plan to post EVERY DAY IN JANUARY, covering a whole range of topics. If you want to see me write about anything specific or are interested in a collab, feel free to reach out.
I really hope you love the new look, let me know down in the comments what you think!
