see ya later twenty twelve


2012 for me has been the worst year, but it's got better towards the end. It's had constant ups and downs; tears, heartbreaks, wrong decisions, deaths and bad news. On a more positive note, I've accomplished a lot of things that I wanted to do. I've made new friendships, donated clothes to charity and started learning to drive. I got top marks at the end of college this summer and got into University. My blog was a year old in August, I've become very close with a friend Nicole and from her, I've met my current group of friends. I got back "out there" and enjoyed almost a year of being "on my own" going on a few unsuccessful dates with guys. I went to Cyprus this year for a family holiday which was beautiful, came back to see I had won tickets to a Jessie J gig and then went Italy for my half-brother's wedding. Finally, ending 2012 on a positive note, I'm in a new relationship which is so different and I'm a lot happier than I've ever been. Crazy!

I thought I would pick out all my favourite photos from the past year and put them together. Goodbye 2012!
