Bye Bye 2018

And hello 2019!

2018 flew by and has probably been one of my busiest years ever with Highers, S6 and university applications taking up a huge amount of time.

There have been lots of amazing little moments so, just like this time last year, here are 52 photos (for 52 weeks!) of my 2018 highlights! I’ve added a little context in the caption for each, and the links lead to relevant blog posts if you fancy reading more. So here’s my 2018 recap…

Please note that although chronological order should work on desktop, tablets and iPads, unfortunately it gets a bit muddled on phone screens - apologies for the technical difficulty.

2018 certainly was an action packed year, but I have to confess to being even more excited about 2019. I can’t quite believe that I’m going to be leaving school, turning eighteen and (hopefully!) going to university too! It’s a year full of lots of big changes but I’m really, really looking forward to it all.

Hope you’ve all had a brilliant 2018 and all the best for the new year!
