2013 in Questions | Holy Chic


Hey guys!

So today is the third instalment of review 2013 in a month! I am so excited to be reviewing the year for you in the form of questions. This is a mix up of what I found on line and some inserts of the New Year’s tag so this is really just a jumbled mess. But that aside, I hope you enjoy it J

1.       What was the smartest decision you made this year?- deciding to work harder and not care what anyone thinks and live my life the way I want and do what makes me happy

2.      What one word best sums up your year experience? unimaginable

3.      What are you most happy about completing? GCSE’s. now that I have done them I realise how easy they are but its soo good to get them out of the way

4.      What was the biggest risk you took? - I honestly don’t even know the answer to that. I’m not the most risqué person out there.

5.      What are you most grateful for this past year?- probably having the chance to start a blog and interacting with so many amazing people through social media

6.      What was your biggest achievement of the year?- completing the challenge

7.      What do you wish you had done more of? Getting out of the house and meeting new people

8.      What do you wish you had done less of? Thinking negatively. I have achieved so much more thinking positively

9.      Knowing what you know now, if you could write a letter to yourself that would travel back in time so that you would receive it at the start of the year, what advice would you give your younger self? To just let go of the past and move on. Think positively and try my hardest because it will get me so much further in life

10.   How have I procrastinated?- this should be rephrased to did you procrastinate and the answer is yes all the freaking time but this year I am going to fight it!

11.    In what ways can I re-structure my time?- planning an organisation

12.   What were your favourite TV Programs? Pretty little liars, revenge, 90210, new girl, suburgatory, two broke girls, I’m a celebrity…get me out of here, the list is honestly endless

13.   What were your favourite books?- considering I don’t read that much, I have loved of mice and men and the hunger games trilogy

14.   What was your favourite movie this year? Hunger games catching fire, pitch perfect, the conjuring…. (you will have to wait for another favourites post for more of my answers to questions like this J)

29.  How have you grown as a person because of your work and school experience? Eventually you get to the point where you realise that there will always be shit people (excuse the lingo) around you but you can’t let them get to you.
