It’s my last post!! What a year!!

Sunday, September 14th, 2014










Hey all. Firstly, sorry it’s taken me a little while to get this video up. I’ve recently had an operation so been fighting to recover but I wanted to post this reel of some of my favourite moments from the past year. If I could, I would have included everything so picking just a few was actually very difficult.

I would just like to take this moment to say how much I have enjoyed my time as a Lives Online Blogger. Last year, I had no experience in blogging whatsover and I can honestly say I’ve learnt so much in such a short space of time. When I look back on everything I’ve done, it makes me feel incredibly lucky and greatful for this opportunity. Every year, students have the chance to apply and my advice is to go for it. Not only is it such a good experience, for me personally, it looked really good on my CV and actually when I applied for my teaching course which I’m starting this month, I was able to use Lives Online in my interview and show just how much I had achieved.

I would like to thank everyone involved and those who have helped me along the way. My fellow bloggers have been amazing and it’s been a privilige just to get to know you all!! I’m sure wherever life takes you guys, you’ll be amazing!! Finally, I want to wish all of the new bloggers starting this month every bit of success!! I can’t wait to follow you all!! Shout out to Laura Blackett who I met on a recent Open Day for the University of Sunderland. She is one of the new Lives Online Bloggers for this year and is studying Social Work!! Make sure you check her out and if you haven’t already you can follow her on twitter (@lau_swstudent) and instagram (lauralivesonline) too!!

So yeah, I guess this is me signing off. I will miss this and to all who have taken to time to read my blogs or watch my videos I don’t have enough words to express how grateful I am. Take care all and thanks for the memories!! :’)
