2017 ♡ The Good, The Bad & The Unexpected

2017 has been an amazing year, there were more good memories than bad and there were definitely some unexpected. Overall, it has been the best year for me and I haven't felt this way since years ago.

Earlier this year I applied for a job at a big law firm in the city with absolutely no expectations, part of me don't believe in myself because I don't have a lot of experiences as I have only worked in a very small law firm near home. I applied for the Legal Secretary role at this firm thinking that no one is going to call me and I almost wanted to give up, but then I received a totally unexpected call and I was asked to go in for an interview. On my way to the interview, I was so nervous, so shaky, I even got lost at the lobby because I didn't know how to work the lifts. As soon as I walk into the office, all I could hear in my head was "there's no way I am going to get this job". The office is so flash, I can see the viaduct from the meeting room I was seated in and it was just something that I have never ever experienced. The interview went well and of course I got the job, I have been at this job for nearly a year now, it was so unexpected and I am so thankful for everything. I have met a lot of amazing people, made some great friends and attended parties that I never get to experience at my old job. Plus, can we just talk about the location and the environment?! It's literally five minutes walk to Mecca and the viaduct is just across the road.



I made friends with this group of girls towards the end of the year, I have been going out more now and I suddenly felt like I've wasted so many years of my life just sitting at home, watching TV shows.

I have always been socially awkward and sometimes I am even too scared to go out and meet new friends because I didn't think that at my age now I could find friends that I can get along with.

So, this is another unexpected good memories and I am thankful for that.
