2011, oh what a crazy year! So many amazing and new things happened, there were highs and there were lows and I was the busiest I have ever been in my life.
♥ Woke up New Years Day 2011 in an amazing apartment in the 1st arrondissement in Paris
♥ Thought I was going to die with pneumonia and was bed ridden for over a month and then continually sick for months after (not fun)
♥ My design skills improved dramatically and I started producing work I was genuinely happy and proud of
♥ Made some new amazing friends (from TAFE) and reunited with lost friends (from high school)
♥ Graduated from my graphic design and communication course with great marks
♥ Broke up with a long term love (…an example of when the heart shaped bullet point is not appropriate)
♥ Completed my first City2Surf despite my pneumonia-ruined lungs. Tough but rewarding. Going to try and run the full length next year!
♥ Got headhunted for an amazing job which I start next week (!!)
♥ My blog has gone from strength to strength and my readership is steadily growing. So proud of my baby – all that hard work is paying off!
♥ Moving into an awesome apartment in the inner city with an awesome friend
This NYE I will be enjoying some champagne with my girlfriends and partying on to the wee hours. Sure it may not be Paris, but I KNOW it’s going to be a fun night.
So 2012 is going to be very new and different for me. A new job, a new house, a new single life…. and possibly some plans to spend NYE 2012 in New York. HELL YES!
