I thought it would be nice to look back on the things that I’ve learnt this year. Some are serious, some are more lighthearted – either way, I’ve learnt a lot. Hopefully I’ll look back on this post in years to come and remember how many life lessons 2016 gave me.
Jacket potatoes can be cooked in the microwave
This is something I learnt from the other students I live with. Stab your potato all over and cook for 4 minutes on each side.
Golf is HARD
…but I’m getting much better at it. I’m not even talking about proper golf by the way. I’m talking about the type of golf where you just hit golf balls into the distance as hard as you can.
Soya milk tastes a lot better than normal milk
Drinking ordinary milk now makes me feel sick – that’s something I never thought I’d say.
Using a phone case doesn’t make your phone clean
When I took my phone case off a few months ago after having it on for a long long time, I realised that it doesn’t protect your phone from dirt.
Chocolate biscuits should be eaten in moderation
Something I struggle with but definitely understand. However, I will be going into 2017 full of willingness to consume fewer biscuits.
Green tea isn’t disgusting
I love matcha and I love green tea. Who’d have thought?
Never leave your bag unattended
…or out of your sight for that matter. Paris taught me this one.
It is actually possible to ice skate without falling over
I didn’t actually know I was capable of this. However, me and Cem went ice skating twice and didn’t fall over once.
As always, thanks for reading.
Let me know something that you learned this year, or just laugh at me for not knowing how to cook a jacket potato…
