I barely published any Weekend Blog posts in 2017 (or just blog posts, for that matter!), but I’ve really missed writing them and I’d like to bring the series back for 2018.

For those of you who don’t know, The Weekend Blog is a series of posts, published either on a Saturday or Sunday (it was previously called The Sunday Blog), where I write about what has happened in my week. Admittedly, I don’t have the most exciting life ever, but I love to write and share these post for myself more than anything, and if you enjoy reading them too then that’s an added bonus!

Back in October, I started to think about what I wanted my goals for 2018 to be. Yes, I started thinking about this very early, but 2017 was a pretty terrible year for me and I couldn’t wait for it to end!

Last year, instead of setting myself multiple goals, I just chose one. My goal was to buy a house, and I did accomplished it. In previous years I had set myself multiple goals, but I always failed at achieving all the goals I set and it just made me feel really bad about myself.

Happy 2018 everyone!

As I’ve mentioned before, 2017 was a strange year for me, and it ended in a rather unexpected way.

I handed my notice in and quit my job.

It all happened rather quick to be honest. I made my decision on the Monday and I handed my notice in on the Tuesday. And just over a week later I finished my final day.

Although my final decision to quit was made rather swiftly, I’d actually been considering it for quite some time. I’m talking the last 6 months to a year.
