2016 has drawn to an end and thus begins the pressure to start bettering ourselves for the new year (I don’t know why this is a thing, it just is). With that in mind, I’ve
I successfully managed a team and curated submissions to work towards creating those issues
I landed a work experience placement as an assistant archivist (and loved it!)

To start my book-themed podcast and arrange some great guests for you all!
To finish it would be great, but for now (as a more realistic role), to continue writing my novel

To come up with a great dissertation idea, and get the proposal cracking – V IMPORTANT
To start earning a little more money (got that masters degree to save for!)
Overall, a lot of incredible things happened this year and I’m really proud of how hard I’ve worked both at university, within my job, and on my blog. I also made a good handful of silly mistakes this year that were invaluable learning experiences and I adapted to those situations in a professional manner and applied it to further decisions; something I probably couldn’t have done a few years previously. I guess I’m maturing, ha! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful year considering how crappy 2016 was in some places and I wish you all the best for the new year.
