happy 2013.

I'm not really using my blog anymore, but I do one of these at the end of every year & I want somewhere to put it.

1) Was 2012 a good year for you?
It was pretty similar to last year! I got promoted at work but that's about it. Not much has changed really, it's been steady.

2) What was your favourite moment of the year?
Holidayzzzzz. I went to America twice, Spain, France. Went to London a bunch of times. 

3) What was your least favourite moment of the year?
Work probably. In general. Even though I got a promotion it's not a job I want to stay in, however I'm too sensible to pack in a steady income before I find something else. 
I would have loved to just quit! 

4) Where were you when 2012 began?
At my parents house with my boyfriend.

5) Who were you with?
My boyfriend.
6) Where will you be when 2012 ends?
I was at a friends house.

7) Who will you be with when 2012 ends?
Boyfriend and friends.

8) Did you keep your new years resolution of 2012?
- Actually do a work placement at a primary school - I didn't do this. I really need to.
- Get a new job - just for some more money at least.  - I did this but I almost wish I hadn't!
- Go blonder, but minus any bleach.  - SUCCESS! see photo below.
- Pay off all my debt.  - no. However I didn't get into any MORE debt so I guess that's okay.
- Decorate our apartment properly.  - kind of. We have more stuff now.
- Open a joint bank account.  - Yes.
- See my friends more often.  - Yes!
- Ebay everything I don't wear/use anymore.  - to an extent. I still have a long way to go.
- Buy less cheap shit & more expensive, good quality stuff.  - yes, I just bought a Mulberry satchel.

9) Do you have a new years resolution for 2013?
- Ebay anything I haven't worn/used for 9 months.
- Get a new job - even if it's less money, it will be worth it if I actually enjoy it.
- Keep growing my hair. Operation mermaid hair!
- Pay off all my debt. Again.
- Lose weight/get healthy.
- Save £1000.
- Visit new cities.
- Use more of the makeup/cosmetics I have before buying more.
- Get a hobby. An actual tangible one.

Well, no, I just stayed in it.

I said No. But Sean.

14) You regret it?

15) Did you breakup with anyone in 2012?

16) Did you make any new friends in 2012?

17) Who are your favourite new friends?
I made new friends through work. I didn't meet too many new people but I did start hanging out with people I didn't know that well more often. So now I class them as good friends.

18) What was your favourite month of 2012?

I've made a conscious effort to spend time with people I didn't make much effort with the previous year.

23) What was your favourite movie that you saw in 2012?

Oh & here is proof that if you stop bleaching your hair, it grows.
This is me in January 2012 when I'd had to cut all my hair and dye it brown because the bleach had wrecked it so much. & My resolution for 2012 was to look after my hair, only use regular dye & not straighten it as much. Hurrah! - 

Happy 2013!
