Sophie Talks | One Year Later


It's funny looking back in time, don't you think? It's an odd thing to do, when it's so important to live in the present, but it's also nice to look at who you were and where you've come. This time last year, I was sat in my new house, in a new area that I barely knew, just two days after I graduated from university. I'm not sure what's scarier - thinking back to what I would have been thinking then, or looking at how much different I am from that person now.

The past year has been full of so many life changing moments, most of which I'd never have imagined only a year ago. 365 days ago, I was a scared twenty-one year old, not knowing what was going to happen. I didn't have a job lined up, my relationship was rocky, and I was living in back home away from all of my friends. 

Looking back now, I have to say that I'm actually so proud of everything I've achieved in the past year. I gave myself six months to get a job that I wanted to do, and got my communications assistant role within that time. I decided to pick my blog back up, and it's been doing better than I could imagine it ever would. I decided to be happy with myself, as a single, free twenty-two year old. I decided to take the trip of a lifetime (although, I'm going back for sure) and go alone to visit friends in Canada and America.

If you'd have said any of that would happen to that girl sat in her new room, having just graduated, she'd probably have laughed. It really is amazing how much you can do within the space of a year, and I am so excited for what the next year holds.

If you're graduating this year, and are worried about finding your path in the big world that's out there, don't be. You can do anything you want if you put your mind to it.

P.S I've signed myself up to do a charity event for the NSPCC in September, as part of my twenty-two at twenty-two. I'll be climbing 1037 steps to the top of The Gherkin in London, and any donation towards my challenge would be greatly appreciated. You can find out more about it here.

  1. I did a post similar to this! It's great to look back on the past 365 years since leaving university, sometimes I wish I was back there with minimal responsibilities! Adult life is tough! :D glad you've looked back really positively :)
