A birthday always allows for retrospect and a consideration of the future. On Friday, I became a year older and left the teenage years behind me. Now, adulthood awaits.
I’ve always been a structured person, and all the way up to 18, there’s been a path for me to follow in terms of education. Granted, I now have university to keep me busy for another year or so, but as I now take a three-week break after another semester has finished, I don’t have much time left in Lincoln before the next adventure.
I should also digress for a moment to explain why there have been no posts up this week. As mentioned above, the last week of this semester was this week, and so I was rather busy with the final assignments and work experience with the local newspaper – The Lincolnshire Echo. You can even read an article I worked on during the week here.
However, the great thing about this short break is that it gives me time. I can now work through my backlog without any new tasks being added to the to-do list.
Unfortunately, a quiet few weeks for my blog have not helped with statistics at all. My views for the year currently stand at 3,666. In 2016, I reached 16K views which was over 1,000 views a month. Sadly, I don’t think I’ve averaged enough readers per month to achieve my 20K goal, but I’m hoping a normal schedule can resume shortly.
Much like last year, when the lengthy summer holidays are just around the corner, I have a lot to look forward to. There’s work experience opportunities, concerts, festivals and much more to come. What’s even more exciting is something which is happening tomorrow – a post-birthday treat to myself which I hope will improve my Friday Articles in the future.
I’m sure I shall reveal all in due course.
