Is everyone excited for the New Year? How is everyone spending it? I'm excited but I'm not doing anything special. Some years I go to house parties (including a Murder Mystery themed night) or I just stay in and watch Jools Holland on the TV with my mum, I don't really mind what I do. I've never gone out to town though because I hear its INSANE! Tonight I'll be going down my boyfriends, and maybe have one or two drinks with him, his housemate and his girlfriend, and of course I'm going to dress up a bit, I might wear a blue playsuit! I have yet to wear it! I'm really excited to kiss my boyfriend at midnight since I've never kissed anyone after the countdown despite having boyfriends on New Years Eve, just I didn't see them lol. I'm excited for the New Year because its a new fresh start and I think that's why most people love the new year, and make all those resolutions! I have yet to make mine, and I hardly ever stick to them but I still love making them. I used to write in a diary every day, and I would write in my resolutions, and then compare them from the year before and do a sort of review on how well I did, so maybe I could bring that tradition here, except I don't think I made any last year, ooops! So instead I'll recap a bit of my year.

Not necessarily in order but in 2011....

All in all, it was a very good year, and I can't wait for the next. I really want to do something, get a proper job, declutter, be more creative, healthier, go on adventures and so on. Hopefully, this time next year I'll be looking back happily! I hope everyone had a lovely last day of 2011 and have a Happy New Year!
