21 things I did and didn't do...

Happy New Year!

As New Year is also my birthday, 
every year I make a pretty big thing of reflecting on the previous year 
and setting new goals for the year ahead.

Last year I set myself 21 new years resolutions to achieve while being 21.

Now I hold my hands up and say I didn't manage them all, 
but I'm very proud of the ones I did.
Some of which included...

I got my first full time job.

I went to an art class to learn to love drawing again.

I started playing guitar again, and even performed a couple of times...
...at my brother's wedding. One of the best days of my whole year.

I started making things on a regular basis and trying out new skills.

I organised a fundraiser for Rape Crisis
and raised over £700!

I graduated from University with a First Class Honours Degree in Psychology with Counselling.

And I learnt to not let the little things bring me down.

Corny thought that may be, it was a pretty great year for me =)

And... it's finally the year that I get married!!

Now... what's everybody got planned for 2012??


  1. Wow, looks like you had a fab year! How exciting to be planning your Wedding, congrats! I just have lots of craftiness planned and to just spend time with the hub and kids - awww! x
