2011 Year in Review

December 8, 2011

It’s so strange to think how things can change and be so different in just a year. When actually you say it’s a year gone doesn’t seem all that long but when you say 365 days it seems so much longer. At least to me. These past few years (since 2009 really) so much has changed and I know for a fact 2012 will be bringing a whole new lot of changes with it too. Sometimes if I think of these changes to come too much I scare myself and start to worry and panic and then annoy myself because although there may be a few changes next year they’ll all be spread out through the 365 days and not all just in one day so I need to stop over thinking things and take each moment as it comes.

So I thought I’d share some memories from 2011 that I’ve valued and enjoyed. Because it always feels like you remember the negative more than the positive and I want to fondly remember 2011.

Became addicted to J.D Robb!


Having a brilliant 25th birthday!
Finally met Zoe and visited Bath all in the same day! (Roman Baths and Jane Austen Centre)

Overall 2011 has been an interesting year and I wish there was one word to sum it up but there wasn’t! There have been many changes and I really think I’ve grown a lot in this year and I’m excited and yet ambivalent at times to what 2012 will bring I only hope that 2012 will bring great things and be a much more positive year.
