An eventful year that has really flown by

Merry Christmas, Falkirk!

Is it just me or has this year gone in just too quickly?

I don’t know why, but Christmas 2014 seems only like a few months ago.

I think because it’s been such a busy, eventful year, it’s absolutely flown in, and, before we even got the chance to sit down and take a break, we realise here we are again, ready and waiting for 2015.

For me anyway, this year I’ve barely been able to sit down for five minutes, it’s been so manic.

From ‘Hairspray’ to Athens, sitting my first set of Highers to starting my last year at school, driving lessons, booking Magaluf, Newcastle, shopping, studying, applying to university ... It really has been a non-stop year.

I’m glad now that I’m finally getting a rest!

It’s quite strange, actually, sitting on the couch and realising that I don’t 
actually have any school work to do.

Well, that is slightly a lie, a few essays here and there, but nothing dreadful that is going to take up my whole holiday schedule.

I don’t even have to rush to get tasks done.

I can take my time and still be able to appreciate the festive season while writing about how the characters in ‘Othello’ and ‘Antony and Cleopatra’ are similar, but different.

Actually, that’s an even bigger lie.

I almost completely forgot about the book-load of drama homework that I’ve been given: research on Stanislavsky and Peter Brook.

In all fairness, though, I strangely enjoy researching and writing stuff down, so this is more of a positive than a negative.

I’ve got a feeling that with the heavy workload I’ll be receiving at both school and university next year (I am definitely going to uni as well, with two unconditionals so far!) will make 2015 go even quicker than this year.

I’m not going to lie, it’s going to be huge year for me.

I’m leaving school and going on my first holiday without my parents which is slightly daunting, but I think after the long rest I’ve had this Christmas, I’m ready for it.
