The Year Ahead

Hello everyone, I hope you are well rested from the Christmas break and ready to start the second term. Last week was a stressful time for me, as I had three exams in one week! It was as horrible as it sounds, and meant that my Christmas break was as revision filled as you can imagine. It did mean though that as a treat, 11:30am on Friday the 9th of January 2015 marked the start of a weekend of rest and zero revision, yay! For those of you who have followed my blog updates, you may or may not know that I am a fan of The Sims. Although I am a fan, I am slow to move to the next version once it has been released, and this time was no exception. One of my friends finally convinced me to get The Sims 4, and I was surprised at how much better it was than The Sims 3, and I loved The Sims 3! So as you can imagine, the weekend I had off after my exams was spent playing The Sims 4, and I must say it was time well spent.

So as the title would suggest, I thought I would take the opportunity to let you know my plans for the year ahead. In terms of my studies, this year is the year I will complete my degree, which will involve multiple assignments, more exams, presentations, as well as a dissertation with a grand total of 15,000 words… it will all be worth it in the end! This year I also plan on sorting out my finances, taking at least one holiday (abroad), and just generally making myself a better person. I suppose it’s not very original, and the vast majority of people will have similar goals every time a new year comes around, but sometimes being cliché is needed.

As you may remember from my last blog, I thought I would start including a fact that I find interesting just to make a change to the regular blogs that I write. This time, my fact is about Highway 1 in Australia, which is the world’s longest national highway, totalling 14,500 km! Highway 1 circumnavigates the entire country, and joins together all the mainland state capitals. As the highway passes through nearly every major inhabited part of Australia, it is very popular with tourists. It sure would be one amazing road trip to circumnavigate Australia on Highway 1, just think of all the things you would see! It would be an extremely long drive though, and would probably take a very long time! Plus think of all those miles added on whichever vehicle that was used.

I hope you found that fact interesting, and that you are working hard this year to get the best results you can. Until next time everyone!
