How I did it: I saved up for three months as soon as I was sure I had the opportunity to go, and it was worth every penny. I have never met so many amazing people, or been so inspired. A group of six of us went, and I taught English in a high school, as the others taught science and music lessons. Nothing has ever felt so rewarding, and there were plenty of tears when we left!

How I did it: I stopped doing what everyone told me to do. That may sound weird, but everyone has different methods of learning. My teachers were constantly telling me to write out my notes again, which does work to some degree, but for me it simply didn't do the job. So I made lots and lots of spider diagrams :) Read how I did it…
How I did it: I saw it on the west end, with Alfie Boe and Matt Lucas.And can honestly say this was the best musical I've ever seen. I sobbed. Repeatedly. There were some amazing performances from the cast and you could really see the love they have for their work. Towards the end we could just hear crying from all around the theatre, and the standing ovation lasted at least five minutes. One of the most emotional performances I've ever seen. Read how I did it…
I’ve been spending a lot more time with one of my best friends; not just at weekends but after work and school too..
She is genuinely the funniest person I know, and is a great help in making me chill out more.
Last week, we were getting the train home from town, and it missed our stop completely. She ranted and raved about it, and I really saw the funny side. Without her, I’d have been panicking and stressing; my reaction was completely different: I was much more easy-going and chilled out, so I’m thinking her good habits may be rubbing off on me!!
