The New Year is always a time for personal reflection and renewal. Your aim for every year should be to make it better than the previous one and reach for the stars for your goals. Christmas and New Year were ace as I got to spend time with family and friends up North. Plenty of happy memories were made. Hope you all got a deserved break.
In 2017 I’m hungry to make the most of another superb year. I have many goals I want to reach, these are some of them:
Today I arrived home to Macduff for the Christmas holidays which I’m over the moon with, as I will be reunited with my family and pals. I thoroughly enjoy living in Glasgow and college. However, you can’t beat going back to where you were brought up as children.
When I was heading towards Queens Street station, people were spreading the Christmas joy by handing out free bottles of Iron Bru or what some call “a bottle of ginger”. I got offered a huge box of them however I couldn’t take it as I had too much stuff to carry and rain was coming down heavy. My Uncle Duane kindly picked me up from the Aberdeen train station and drove me home.
I’m home. Home sweet home! There is so many things to look forward like singing in the praise band at the Christingle service and carol singing at night on Christmas Eve. Also, meeting up with friends and family. Oh yeah, you can’t forget to celebrate Christmas day.
I will make the most of the time to have a deserved break from college and catch up with people. Thank you, everyone, for following my blog. It would be great if you would share it with others who you think may be interested in it.
Everyone have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Look forward to more posts in 2017 and even YouTube videos as well.

I’m 18 now! I loved every minute I spent up in Macduff celebrating my birthday with my amazing family and friends during my week on holiday from college. Someone said to me: “You look very happy in your Facebook profile picture.” That’s an understatement by a country mile. I couldn’t stop smiling.
Being home was sweet! I saw people who I was used to seeing every week before moving to Glasgow which was brilliant. I miss everyone but I will see you all at Christmas as I return home once again. Many things have changed up north with Macduff Parish Church getting a new minister and my classmates are at university studying in Aberdeen and Edinburgh as well as some at college locally. Others are still at Banff Academy.
Recently I got my interview with YouTuber Jodi and Steven Vlogs about their visit to Glasgow published in the Student Record which is an amazing achievement for me and I appreciate everyone who read it. My writing has improved a great deal since I started in 2013.
On my birthday while sipping a nice cold bottle of Beck’s at night I look at the collection of pictures from past and present given to me in a frame as a gift from my sister Lauren. This triggers me to remember many magical moments in my life so far from visiting America for the first time to water gun fights across the road from my home when I was little. I have had loads of family holidays across Scotland and the world which is staggering since I’m only 18.
I am excited for what is going to happen in the next 18 years in my life and ready to face all the challenges blocking my path.
I have received positive feedback about this blog with many enjoying it. So weekly I will write a blog post and continue to document my life as a student journalist.

Life experiences transform you dramatically into a different human being. It certainly has transformed me.
When I was younger I used to have not much confidence as result of bullying and had a lot of people who put on show pretending to be my friends who stabbed me in the back.
Now I would say I’m more confident, calm and the happiest I’ve ever been. You know the saying “It’s all about quality, not quantity.”This is the principle I believe when it comes to friends.
My friends are brilliant and I trust them. They are from all walks of life such as college, academy, churches and football.
Recently I was speaking to a good friend about this topic and each other’s problems that we have managed to overcome to be where are.
This conversation was interesting and emotional. As looking back a bit at the past has made me think that I never wish anyone to experience that even my biggest enemy.
I just thought this was an idea for a blog post.
What I have been up to
I was down watching Blackburn Rovers against Ipswich Town on Saturday with a pal which ended goalless. The match was alright however it was a great day out and we had a laugh.
Also, I am heading up the road to see my family and friends which I’m extremely excited to do.
Everyone enjoy the October holidays and thanks for reading my posts.
