So this is abit of a different blog post, I suppose it's a little bit more personal. This year as you have probably noticed i'm trying to change a little for the better. I've been eating better and started going to the gym! I've been blogging and instagraming because I really need the push and the motivation to keep going. I'm really trying to be more positive and proactive. The last couple of years have been a mixture of highs and lows! A lot has changed, I met Clint and ended my previous relationship, I was with my ex for nearly 7 years so that was a huge change. Last year was my final year at Uni, which meant degree show and dissertation and I did it! I got my 2:1 and graduated! My final year was so stressful and I couldn't have done it without Clint, he was there for me and got me through so much. This year i've taken a year out and i've just been working part time and blogging. My plan is to gain some teaching experience so I can decide whether I want to teach and then I will need to do the PGCE teacher training course which I know is going to be so intense. I feel like i'm putting the course off and I don't want to give up! So i've made it my aim to be more positive and motivated. I need to get my shit together. I'm going to Florida in March so my aim is to get my CV and cover letter together and start researching schools for placements and start contacting them before my holiday so then hopefully I have a good period of time between easter and the summer for placements, this will be when i'll decided whether I want to teach and whether i'm going to apply for the course this year or next year.

Do you have any tips on how to stay positive and motivated? Have you ever taken a year out and did you find it difficult?
