So 2011 is coming to an end and although I would’ve loved to slam out a corkboard review again I realised I just didn’t have that many photos to do so (more on this later!).
It’s been a very fast year, I’ll probably start saying this every year but it’s just how it felt – is it a sign of getting older too?
But do you know what the greatest thing about the new year is?
To me it’s about leaving the year behind and starting a new year. We often use the saying at certain points in our lives, “starting a new chapter” but to me starting a new year is like starting a new book. Think about it, for those who still use paper organisers you will be starting a new one – I definitely will be!
So how did my 2011 fair up then? Well..
~I reckon that if I was to look back in a few years time and recall what the key events in 2011 were, I’d probably say:
- Starting Work
- Moving Houses
~But like every year, it’s always a chance to start / try new things!
- Tuesday Night Basketball & Thursday Basketball – no photos unfortunately 🙂 But a huge thanks to all the ballers who show up! Especially to those that show up week after week.
- On that note I’d just like to say I’ve gotten to meet so many new people in 2011 which I am always grateful for.
- Bom’s Cafe on Saturdays (well I tried! Yes, it’s still on when we can!)
- City2Surf (I will definitely challenge this again next year)
~I never really state out my resolutions for the new year, in fact I don’t think I ever explicitly do them.. but I reckon I always subtly have a few things I want to do – becoming a better person & improving yourself should be a continuous journey right? Having said that, promises met for this year:
- Join a gym / regular exercise
- Start reading the books I buy
- Make a conscious effort to keep in contact with friends
- Be more independent
- Attention to detail
- Asking the right question(s)!
