2010s wasn’t an “easy” decade. This was basically the decade of my 20s – the time of changes, of finding yourself and your place in this world, and of course the time of new experiences. This is when we graduate from University, look for our first serious jobs, or pursue academic careers, and are forced to make many important and life-affecting decisions.
I saw this Backwards Bucketlist on zoella.co.uk. I used some of the prompts from there that applied to me and removed others. But if you’d like to see the full list and also get the printables, make sure to check Zoella’s blog!
WhimsyPages! This blog was born in 2016 and I’ve been loving every second of this experience.
Law School. I graduated from Law School in 2015. This past decade has been focused more on studying, working, all the fun stuff.
How to drive! A couple of years ago I got my driving license. But in general, I learnt a lot of things. From Uni classes to actual court practice and tons of work experience, dealing with clients and just people around. I feel like this last decade impacted me the most.
Holland, Spain, multiple towns in Portugal and Hong Kong!
Video Gaming! I never thought I’d love gaming so much, but I did. It was definitely a fun experience.
Since we are speaking about the whole decade, I guess my language skills. In 2008 I moved to Portugal and had to learn a new language without any preparation for it. So in 2010s I worked hard to constantly improving my Portuguese.
In English. This was the decade when I finally stopped being afraid of reading books in foreign languages.
Communication skills. I used to be so shy to talk to people or approach someone I don’t know. But all the experiences I went through in the last 10 years helped me greatly to “lose” this fear of mine.
Positive mindset. Overall, I’ve always been a positive person and in general, I can reign my emotions very well. But when multiple things start to stress me out, it becomes more difficult to stay calm and focused. I feel like I’ve been better at overcoming the “day-to-day” stress and focus my mind on positive and important things.
Love? 😀 ❤
✔ BEEN PROUD OF
Not abandoning my blog after a couple of months. This might not seem like the biggest or most important achievement for some of you, but for me, that was a big deal. I’ve never taken a “hobby” so seriously before and the fact that it’s now been almost 4 years of me blogging is absolutely mind-blowing!
Overall, 2010s had some very important events and self-discoveries, and I’m glad to finish this decade while I’m in a very good place in terms of work, family, my love life, and even this “little” hobby. 🥂
