So, inspired by a post on xoJane (which I can no longer find, so maybe it wasn’t?), I’d like to invite you all to celebrate the awesome things you did this year. It might be a small thing, it might be a big thing, but it’s a great time to think about the cool things you did, rather than regretting the things you didn’t do.
Here are a few of my achievements this year, both personal and professional:
LISDIS! A major one, this. From idea to execution in around 8 months, I worked with the amazing Jess, Emily and Rosie to put on this awesome conference. And we’re already making bigger and better plans for next year!
Paris – I’ve been many places in the world, but had never been to Paris before I flew out on New Year’s Day 2015. It was the best way to start the new year, I had a great time and fulfilled a dream of walking down the Champs Elysees whilst listening to Les Champs-Elysees. (And have just discovered that the song will now and always remind me of that trip.)
ISEWLib – taking part in the Erasmus-funded International Library Staff Exchange Week at the University of Helsinki was one of the best experiences of my professional career, and also great personally as I met so many awesome people (and got to travel to Helsinki and Tallinn).
So, those are a few of my achievements this year – what about you?
