After a poorly new year's eve I had to say goodbye to some things very dear to my heart.
Carpenters, my church since I was very little, came to an end in a puddle of tears and emotions, and Becca moved away, leaving me with a hole in my heart and my coffee shop trips.
I also got an iPhone and fell in love with Michael from Prison Break.
Gareth and I went to see Diana Vickers again. I really don't like her.
I helped Gareth move into a new flat.
I got to the pinacle of fed up with anxiety and OCD and decided to seek treatment to kill it once and for all.
We went skiing with my absolute favourites, Archie and Mia, for Easter. It was very cute, chilly and excellent fun.
Oh and my name and words got put on the back of an actual published book.
The Joy the Baker podcast played my phonecall and that was bloody cool.
I revised HARD for my upcoming exams, and then I took my first exam.
Remember when it was hot? Well I had a really excellent weekend in Brighton when it was. Brighton is LOVELY in the summer.
I turned twenty.
And finished my exams.
It was Gareth's birthday too.
How good was the opening ceremony? Very.
AND I GOT MY FIRST EVER SPRAY TAN.
In slightly sadder news, I didn't get into university. But I did go on a brilliant holiday to Switzerland with the delicious Howard family.
Gareth and I went to see the Paralympics, and I made some September plans.
I met this little guy and my heart exploded.
Then I saw Ellie at the Jazz Cafe and my heart exploded again.
I got a job and I got a place on the NCTJ course in Brighton. Life was looking pretty good. Then I started the job and realised it was bloody knackering.
Bonfire night with Archie, Mia and family, and the BBC Good Food show.
I told my manager I would be leaving in January to move to Brighton and start a journalism course at the Argus Newspaper. Then I told you lot too. I got scared and excited at the same time. I also went to see Ellie again on her Halcyon Days tour but for some reason didn't blog about it. Here's me telling you.
We put the decorations up and I got a bit Christmas crazy.
I look to 2013 with expectation and plenty of fear. Possibly the biggest changes of my life (since I grew boobs) are to happen and I look forward to seeing how it all turns out this time next year. Life is such a funny specimen, the way it changes and stays the same seemingly simultaneously. I wish you all a glorious 2013, and I sincerely look forward to sharing amongst you on my small space of the internet.
