farewell 2011

Sunday, 1 January 2012


2011 has been the best year of my life so far, without question. For me there's been a drastic lifestyle change: an important relationship ended, my social life sky-rocketed, my friends have never been closer, my confidence has never been stronger, my laugh has never been louder, and my hair has never been blonder.

There was a life-changing trip to South East Asia; unforgettable weekends at both V Festival and Brownstock; my surprisingly enjoyable graduation ceremony; my 21st birthday; a trip to Devon with my best friend to see my sorely-missed sister; an out-of-this-world week in New York; a quick getaway to my parent's caravan on the beach with my girls, where we acted like children; spending the day in London with my sister and watching The Wizard of Oz, in a much-successful effort to cheer me up; numerous walks along the seafront; my best friend's summer get-together entitled 'Lystorfest'; published work in Cellardoor Magazine, Noir, Missfits and Segue; numerous nights out; Lee Evans at the O2; a wonderful week in the New Forest in the lead-up to Christmas; and Christmas and New Year's Eve (the last picture above) were pretty damn special this year too.

I don't even know if 2012 is in with a fighting chance.
