New year, same me: maybe.

New year, same me: maybe.

I haven’t uploaded a blogpost in three months so, here I am feeling shitty for my lack in production. Although, I haven’t actually been lacking in productivity at all. Over the winter period, I had a job. Yep, that’s right, a proper, full time, adult job. Since leaving university and returning from travelling it’s been the first adult-ing I’ve taken part in. It was great to be back for that short period of time (I actually had a lot of fun working for Flying Tiger Copenhagen and made great connections to new people) but, alas, I am back where I started; jobless, hopeless and penniless. You’re probably wondering how I can remain penniless after working full time over the Christmas holidays but as the title suggests; nothing has changed in the wonderful world of Emily Jayne Tisshaw. I don’t save money, I never have. My money situation is actually a whole different story that I’d rather not delve into right now.

So, it’s a new year and I’m pretty much the same person I was this time last year, and I’m completely okay with that. A great plop of different shit has happened but I still feel me and it’s great. In 2016 I made the conscious decision to leave university, survived a toxic relationship, fell in love with the next person who paid me any attention only to get my heart broken, survived for 6 weeks out of one suitcase whilst hopping to and from 10 different cities, spent Christmas in my favourite city (Berlin), earned enough money to pay off my overdraft and didn’t, dated 3 different people with the same name as me (one of whom I’m currently still with and it’s the best thing ever), spent 10/12 months taking an antidepressant everyday, kicked off my YouTube channel, shaved my head, grew out my armpit hair, and came out of the closet!

I want to thank everyone who has ever taken the time to read my ramblings, be in my circle of friends, anyone who has supported me through the shite I’ve endured and loved me for who I am. I am forever grateful to be surrounded by such amazing people and after re-reading the list of things that have happened in 2016 I think I can conclude that maybe I have changed (just a little bit)…

– peace and love, Emily xo
