As we draw to the end of the year, it can feel as though you're obligated to share your achievements from 2020. It's important to remember, though, that even if you feel as though you haven't achieved anything of note, making it to the end of the year is a success in and of itself. 2020 has been a nightmare personified. 🤦
Don't be embarrassed to share your seemingly minuscule achievements - they're still something to be proud of! Times are rough so my list is fairly short, but I'm incredibly impressed with myself for finally being on the right side of £0 for the first time in a long time (can't help but thank the lack of legality when going out for this one).
You can’t always equate career success to life success - the two are separate things and you can have the latter without the former. So, we thought it’d be a good incentive to get us thinking about what we’ve achieved this year to share with you lovely folk. Our successes are varied, and some might seem more notable than others, but they’re all successes regardless!
- I made bao buns in April, and swam in the sea in September.
- I graduated uni and moved back in with my parents (might not sound like an achievement, but I appreciate being able to live with my family during a pandemic).
- Kept a diary for the first time ever (only a few days missed).
- Writing this I have also remembered that I managed to graduate university with a First this year, but it feels like such a lifetime ago I’m struggling to get my head around the fact that it was, indeed, this year.
- Actually made it to the end of 2020.
- Got a First on all my uni assignments.
- Quit a job I hated and landed on my feet back at TicketSellers!
- Moved into my first non-student house.
- Made and perfected a coconut fish curry on my first attempt without ever having cooked fish before.
If you have anything you’re proud of this year, no matter how small, scream about it! And tell us about it, too - we’re nosey. 👀
