We Won't Miss You 2016

I think it's safe to say that 2016 has just been the worst.

With so many awful things happening this year, even this close to the end of the year, its hard to stay positive. With David Bowie and Alan Rickman going at the start of the year, it was a sign from the start and now with Carrie Fisher too, 2016 stop taking people from us!

I think it goes without saying that the biggest mistake of the year, Brexit was trumped by the biggest mistake of the year, Trump, the rapist elected as the American President, that 2016 just needs to stop, now!

Personally this year has been terrible too, with health and work issues and loosing my Grandad, I really want to see the back of this year and look forward with a positive attitude, which I don't usually do.

Usually I make resolutions and this year I stuck to two. Get out of that terrible job I was in, which I did. Only to find myself in a terrible position that was just not for me. Thankfully, I am not in a job, office and people I like and enjoy. But this year, I've had 3 jobs. Feels odd. I did visit Helsinki with my sister and I did start pre production with my friend (Foxo) on our short film, which is progress. But I'm keeping thing simple this time.

1. Make a dentist appointment - its been too long.
2. Visit my friend who is moving to Florence for a year
3. I say it every year but needs to be said - health - do something.
4. Finish a piece of writing
5. Learn how to hula hoop - I've started and I'm terrible
6. Big drastic clear out
7. Source funding for the film
8. I say this each year too - move out!

These are all do-able apart from number 8, but I put that there to motivate myself more.

So, this will be my last post of the worst year ever. I'm off to hopefully bring in the New Year in a heated tiki hut near Brixton in Winter and enjoy all the whiskey I can afford.

Happy New Year to ye all!


  1. I feel like 2016 wasn't a good year for anybody, I'm sorry about your grandfather. Hopefully 2017 will be a better year!

    1. It does doesn't it. Thank you :)

      Hopefully it will - things can only get better right?

  2. I'm sorry 2016 has been so unkind to you, I felt the exact same way about 2015! Your NYE plans sound amazing, I hope you have a great time! Wishing you all the luck with your resolutions too! :)

    1. Terrible year :( but things will hopefully get better.

      Thank you! I hope I actually stick to them :)

  3. Truly hope 2017 is better for you and your family! I'm sorry to hear about your grandpa and will be sending you positive thoughts throughout the year. Hula hooping is so much fun once I got the hang of it. :D

    1. Thanks man :) I still need to get the hang of the hula, tried this year but didn't make much progress...
