I have done year reviews every year for the last eight or nine years. In fact, since the days when I was back on Livejournal (and I began using livejournal in 2004). I still usually use the same quiz as a template for it, but I don’t think that the template is really appropriate for this blog.
Anyhow: This year has been a whirlwind. I began it in Sweden – stood by the folly in Partille, watching the fireworks overhead, and wondering what the year held for me. From chaos as a Teaching Assistant, to interesting situations which occurred during the year, it has certainly been a relatively colourful year. So many friends attended my birthday in January, and I must also say a great thankyou to all the people who let me sleep over with them in June/July, when I sofa-surfed for the best part of a month when my lease ran out.
And then Cornwall, and Sweden, and the wonderful people I have met on my travels the last few months. The steampunks who have somehow taken over my life and the Swedes who have been so welcoming. The fans of Doctor Who who watched with me and gasped at all the right bits, and the people at Asylum who made me feel at home. The people who cheered me on as I completed NaNoWriMo.
Thank you all.
And Emil, who has put up with all of my insanity; all of my craziness; all of my sadness and hyperactiveness. To him I owe the world.
And then there are you, dear followers – thank you for listening. I know my ranting must get tiresome sometimes, but I hope some of it is interesting!
