Its been AGES since I updated this journal
It's been a rather eventful year I'd say xD
I don't remember what happened last NYE, I might have gone to a party, I might have stayed at home; I know for a fact that I went to a party the year before that because I ended up walking to my best freinds house drunk and waking everyone in her house up before dragging her back to the party with me (it was literally on the same street as her so it wasn't like she had to walk far xD). But I digress.
My 18th birthday was on the 28th of Janurary 2011, I went to an Indian resturant with my family and some friends, and ate and drank and was in general very merry
I also found out around this time that I was going to see Iron Maiden in August (BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER) AND was lucky enough to recieve a laptop aswell. All in all a very good birthday
In mid february I went to the London 3DS launch with Phyonix
; it must have been a good night because over the next 6 months we became close friends, hanging out nearly every weekend throughout that period and, have been in a relationship for the past 4 and half months <3
Then there were exams. Lots and lots of A level exams (most of which I passed so hurrah! Drinking lots of caffeine and cramming like hell does work; JKS),. During this time one of my grandfathers sadly passed away, after losing his fight with the big C. I didn't know him very well but he was very much missed and I still think about him.
Then came the waiting for my results. Not alot happened between my final exam (a psychology one) and getting my results; I pretty much just existed by mucking out horses and making preparations for going to uni, although I wasn't very hopeful despite plenty of encouragment from my friends and family (best not to get my hopes up to high incase I didnt get in right? =]). Although aforementioned Phyonix
did ask me out about a week or two before I got my results, and then there was Iron Maiden and a festival, so August made up for alot of inactivity, even if none of it was very constructive!
I decided I was going to commute to University from my parents home instead of moving in as its cheaper, although since I've started I've found myself wasteing money on teas and coffees and sweet things, procrastinating like hell and being asked to do lots of chores (which would be fine if it wasn't for the procrastinating aswell, meaning I don't get much work done
), although I'm not drinking alot of alcohol, and I'm not makeing a constant tit of myself either. Only an occasional one x]
In November/October?, two of my friends decided to get engaged, and are planning on getting married later this year <3333 You know who you are guys, congratulations again, I'm so happy for the two of you~!
Christmas was nice this year, I got some new clothes, makeup and some jewelry from my parents, and some books from my brothers. Phyonix
got me a 6ft Dragonaire plush which is suuuuuuuuuper soft and awesome and snuggley (thank you hun!). The food was delicious, there was alot of turkey and chocolate (there still is a fair bit of chocolate tbh), and everyone had a nice day even though there was some bickering.
's birthday the following wek by going out to various pubs up in London; sorry there was no cake greenie but I hope the chocolates were good!
And then onto NYE!
Spent the day with
at my house, and then went out with him, my brother arthour
and our friend UncleWoodstock
to Frankie and Benny's for foor and alcohol! Then we went back to Phyonix
's house for more alcohol, and to watch the countdown to the NY on the BBC. The fireworks at Embankment looked gorgeous, almsot wish I'd braved the cold and the crowds to be there myself (almost).
And now its 2012! What are my New Years resolutions?
1) Eat more vegetables, do more excersise and to lose weight (I know thats three but they fall under the same catergory x])
2) DO NOT fall behind with work at University; this includes reading when and what I'm suppossed to and writing essays.
3) Be nicer to my brohers because I can be a real cow to them sometimes (other times they deserve it.)
4) Be greener (be more aware of the environment and my own impact on it, stop wasteing stuff, etc)
5) Still be with Phyonix
by 2013, which won't be difficult unless I don't survive Armageddon.
6) More to come I'm sure...
Happy New year everybody, hope 2012 is a good year for you all!
