2016 Reflections and 2017 Goals

All in all, 2016 has been a pretty quiet year for me. Though the majority of the 366 days will probably fade into a blur there are moments that I would like to remember for a long time to come.

JANUARY - APRIL - In early 2016 I directed my second youth musical, Bugsy Malone. I absolutely loved every minute of it and was taken aback by how well it was received. Definitely an achievement I won't be forgetting.

19TH - 21ST MAY - Pretty big deal actually, I travelled to Dublin in Ireland for the first time and also travelled on a plane for the first time in 14 years. Going to Ireland oddly felt like coming home; from the people, the sights and the food, I fully intend to return in 2017.

28TH AUGUST - I rode a segway for the first time at Leeds Castle, an unusual but very fun experience, hence why I did it again a few weeks later. Definitely recommend for something different for a birthday / special occasion.

SEPTEMBER - OCTOBER - Another show directed, this time a production of Annie. 

15TH DECEMBER - For the second time in my life I was lucky enough to see my favourite band, The 1975 at the O2 in London, pictured above. That night was definitely the best night of my year, I left any troubles or sadness at the door and felt completely free jamming out to my favourite songs live with a close friend. A night I will never forget.

2017 GOALS
I'd like to start taking more control of my life, where I feel unhappy or dissatisfied, I'm going to start taking small steps to turn things around, whether its asking the right questions at work to improve my work life or keeping my eyes open for new opportunities, instead of just complaining about the current situation. I've decided I'm not going to expect 2017 to be 'a new year and a new me', but to take small steps to changing my mentality for the better, mostly: less talking / thinking, more doing.

I hope you all had a great 2016 and I wish you an even better 2017!
