Another year on and it seems like yesterday that I was writing the post titled ‘ 16‘. But one year later, I’ve just read it and wow did I sound enthusiastic about becoming 16. Going into the seventeenth year of my existence I can’t say I’m more enthused but I can perhaps say that I have a clearer vision of what I want to do and who I want to be in this hazy world.
After the best summer in possibly forever, I didn’t want to go to college and regress back to feeling like I did before, although meeting new people that was less likely to happen. Like I wrote my ‘end of an era‘ post thinking I was going to have a twelve week holiday of hardly going out… wow was I wrong. I had a new found confidence, it wasn’t like I wasn’t a confident person before. Honestly I’ve just put it down to being socially awkward because I actually love going out and doing things that people my age are meant to be doing instead of staying in reading, not that I don’t love that, but there’s only so much time in one’s own company that you can handle.

Something I also discussed on my blog this year during the election was about youth and politics. I asked people should 16 year olds get the vote? The general opinion was yes, they should and it was honestly one of my favourite posts to write despite writing about two weeks before exams started (once a procrastinator, always a procrastinator). But possibly my most exciting post of this year was my post with the UK Parliament about UK Parliament Week 2017 (next week everyone so watch out for some exciting posts on all things politics and politics).
Although I’m not perhaps posting as regularly as I used to, I’m enjoying it a whole lot more and the posts that I do post I’m super proud of and I want that to continue this year. I don’t want to put pressure on myself for my blog because that defeats the reason to why I started it in the first place. What do I want to achieve on Eleanor Claudie next year? I said I want to push for positive change and I think that will continue, I want to make ethical fashion as accessible for you all as I can find it and I want to continue educating myself and those who read this blog about things that generally interest me, whether it be the history of fashion or a French film that I found particularly moving. I want you to feel inspired reading this blog (pls give me feedback on things you do want to see though, I am always welcome to suggestions).
