So coming towards the end of 2015 the year of my blogs 10th anniversary and has mostly been a year of positive progress. Towards end of this time last year, with warehouse job not working out and seemingly stuck with just volunteering at Oxfam shop and blogging, I felt a bit lost in direction and a little lonely. However a volunteering opportunity at Crawley CVS sprouted up which I jumped at, and I started there in January. I have now been here for almost a year as voluntary front desk assistant and enjoyed the experience working alongside great people, gaining confidence, new skills and friends. This has lead to other opportunities including the temp leisure desk role via Talented People Solutions which has also been a great experience, and Cv booster, meaning like Brighton & Hove Albion FC, my life has come leaps and bounds. I would like to thank Michael Simpson for the opportunity who will be sadly leaving Crawley CVS early next year for pastures new but would like to wish him best of luck for the future.
2015 has seen a bit less clubbing than I would have liked due to money reasons and friends around me getting too 'old' maybe though still had the odd cracking night like seeing Phats & Small/ Freemasons perform in Brighton and weekend in capital of Madchester/ Hacienda enjoying great House music night at Hold Fast bar with clubbers embracing me there and great music. The Christmas parties with Crawley CVS and GDC have also been great, as was the Abbotsford School Reunion being reminded of past antics and meeting friendly old faces. Hopefully 2016 will also be a year of positive progress starting with my 30th birthday early next year, and more career opportunities and the elusive girl in my life maybe. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year readers.
