As you may or may not know, I created this blog as a challenge of things to do before I was 18. I turned 18 last month, so have decided to to do an update.
I have really enjoyed writing on my blog since it’s started and sharing all my fun and opinions with you. It’s been hard for me to write as regularly as I would have liked due to writers block or from being really busy with college. Due to this, I have missed many posts about things I have done and thought I would bullet point them here.
Books I’ve read and not reviewed (but hopefully will in the future)
How Hard Can Love Be? By Holly Bourne
What’s a Girl Gotta Do? By Holly Bourne
Haunt Me by Liz Kessler
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh
The Call by Peadar O Guilin
Wrong time wrong place by Simon Kernick (quick reads)
In Cold Blood by Irvine Welsh
This means that I have managed to read 18 books before 18. I’m very pleased and have read some fantastic books this year.
Films I’ve watched
I haven’t seen that many films this year as I just haven’t had the time.
Try/ learn new things
I did my AS levels and achieved AABB
I have taken the MAT exam as my entrance exam for Oxford.
I have tried chips and marmalade – weird I know
Applying to university
I got a job!
I joined the student council
Fun experience/ trips
Cambridge University Summer School
University open days
I went to the Zoo
Although I haven’t managed to do all my 18 things before I turned 18 (*cough – thanks college – cough*) I still managed to do lots of fun stuff. I have said yes to more things and I’ve enjoyed myself which is the main thing.
Now, you’re probably asking “Megan, what are you going to do now you’re 18?” Well, I’m not going to tell you yet but I have something very special up my sleeve. Keep an eye out on this blog and on Twitter (@butterflybourne) for my special announcement over the next two weeks.
A final note: Thank you to all my readers over the last 11 or so months. Seeing my view number go up is certainly encouraging and I've enjoyed myself a lot.
Hi, I'm Megan. I'm a 17 year old from England. This year I have decided to do something different so have set myself challenges of 18 things to do before I turn 18.
