Happy New Year (Belated)


We’re now a few days into 2013 and I’m only just getting around to writing a New Years themed post. Let’s just say I was waiting to see what 2013 would feel like before I jump into judgements and resolutions.

2012 wasn’t a bad year for me. It wasn’t phenomenally-oh-my-god-amazing-best-year-ever. But there were some definite memorable moments.

  1. Took the leap into self-employment. Sort of.
  2. Experienced my first ever surgery.
  3. Holidayed in a castle.
  4. Learnt about tidal flows.
  5. Climbed onto a window sill without an exit plan. (The whole of my holiday to Scotland with my friends was pretty much an entire week of memorable.)
  6. Fell in love.
  7. Read more. All of eight books. Trust me. For me, that’s a lot. (A Feast for Crows, A Dance with Dragons, MWF Seeking BFF, The Lies of Locke Lamora, Batman: Year One, Double Dexter, Red Seas Under Red Skies, World War Z and Cat’s Cradle)
  8. Saw some great things at the theatre – Bring Me the Head of Adam Riches, The 39 Steps and The Boy with Tape on His Face.
  9. Wrote my first ever guest blog post.

There are a few things I wished I did more of in 2013. Taken more photos. Gone to the theatre more. Saw more live music. Seen my friends more. Gone on holiday somewhere new. Little things. But things I can’t help but wish I’d done.

So 2013, I’m hoping to pack some of these things into you. Though, failing on taking more photos as I haven’t even picked up my camera yet this year.

One theatre trip is already booked (Book of Mormon) and hopefully one more fairly soon.

But I have absolutely no plans. Which is a first for me. No resolutions. Which isn’t a first for me. I never make resolutions. Just going to take each day as it comes. With a few of those things up there in mind.
