Is January really the best month for change?

January hasn't gone to plan so far. I didn't want the year to start this way. I had a really good year last year and I wanted to carry that momentum into this year and continue with the positivity but it hasn't played out like that.

The Graduate: One year on

A year ago, I became an English Language and Spanish graduate from Bangor University. Fun story by Stephanie Clayton, aged 23 and 3/4.
