Monthly Roundup: December 2017

How about that? It’s hard to think it’s finally New Year’s Eve. Where has the time gone?

These last few weeks of 2017 sure flew! It’s crazy when you consider how fun this year has been, but it’s good to end 2017 knowing so much good has happened this year. Of course, let’s not forget some months of the year were bad due to the terrorist attacks, but my heart goes out to every single person who has passed away this year, whether it’s from being a victim of a terrorist attack or whether it’s anyone famous or not, but always know I am thinking of you and everyone you know and also, always know I will always provide support to you if you ever feel you cannot open up. Never be ashamed to open up, opening up will always be a good way of helping you get back on track, so always know I’ll support all of you.

Without further ado, it’s time to take a final look back at the last few articles published over the course of December, in fact, the last few articles published for this year.

1.12.2017 – Welcoming all of you to December, I mentioned it was hard to believe that we finally reached the last month of 2017. I also mentioned that time flew so fast, but that 2017 was a fun year and a better one too.

15.12.2017 – Living our lives outside the comfort zone means there are new challenges that can help us to prosper and succeed if we work hard, and writing this article: “Living Life Outside the Comfort Zone: What Was it Like for You?” was my way of expressing what life was like after I started living it outside the comfort zone considering I had completed my first month of working full-time in my first ever full-time job, and then I asked all of you what it was like for you the moment you started to live life outside the comfort zone.

28.12.2017 – Going back to the drawing board with the photographs I previously produced that featured my close friends, Saviyon Thomas & Shaquille Roachford, I produced some more photographs that followed on from when I photographed my close friend, the actor and mental health awareness campaigner, Oli Regan, of Saviyon & Shaquille. Considering this was an updated collection of the photographs I produced that featured both Saviyon & Shaquille previously, I had made sure that the updated photo-set would have that cut and thrust appeal about them by going beyond the expression, in which I would explore their personalities a little more in-depth.

I also published another photography collection on this day, but this time consisting of my trip up to London on the 26th September 2017, which was a wonderful day considering it was breezy, warm and sunny.

It’s the end of the monthly roundup for December, and also the final monthly roundup of the year and I’m pleased to say I can bring this final monthly roundup to a remarkable close.

Thank you so much, everyone, for such a fantastic 2017, and although we have lost quite a lot of people this year, let’s all take a moment to remember everyone we lost and always value the fact we need to value our time and make the most of the valuable time we all have on this mortal coil we call Planet Earth.

Again, thank you so much, everyone, for such a fantastic 2017, and I shall see you all in 2018. Have a wonderful and Happy New Year and stay safe and wrap up warm. 2018 will be the best year of our lives, and I’m so sure of it. See you in 2018!
