Hello 2012

As usual, I’m not used to typing out the date on the first day of the year. But that’s all good… again, I have been really consistent and this is the third year in a row that I’m writing a blog on New Year’s Day, and have titled it “Hello [year]”. ๐Ÿ˜„

I have seen a lot of people recap on 2011 or have new year’s resolutions. There’s quite a popular recap questionnaire going around and for the year of 2010 I posted it on my other random/planning blog glassfields.net. For 2011, I also posted the questionnaire there; so feel free to take a peek and do the questions yourself. Great way to look back on the year, in my opinion.

I don’t really have any new year’s resolutions but I know people will always ask and will always get curious about what other people say. However, I don’t see the new year as the only time to turn over a new leaf, or make a new goal, or shoot for the stars. Last year I did “Monthly Goals” and failed a fair few months and didn’t get all ten goals of the month done. This year, I’m happy to have my 101 in 1001 list that I can keep referencing. I’m going to sort of focus on that, and getting things done from that list. Or getting things started. Because even though it’s summer here, I may need to start knitting a scarf now in order for it to be ready in autumn when it gets colder.

So I really am looking forward to this year, I think it’s going to be great. I’m starting a new course at university, I’m going to be working a lot more, my cousin’s getting married mid-year, I’m turning 21, I’m graduating from my Bachelor course that I finished last year. It’s all looking really bright. I guess I do have some minor resolutions, including reading the ten books I bought last year, sleeping earlier, and cutting down on websites.

As many of you know, I did a lot of consolidation last month and I cut down on a lot of fanlistings and website content. I’ve already moved my writings, so now you can read my poems and my Letter to a Domain series. Soon, I’m going to write a whole list of everything I did in regards to cleaning my websites, just so you can see. ๐Ÿ˜

Since I wanted to sort of recap on my year, other than in that questionnaire, I’ll quickly sum it up in this post.

January

  • Went to my first show, for Ben Jorgensen. Met him, chatted with him, and had a wonderful night hearing his music.
  • I read a lot of books, including A Clockwork Orange, which was fantastic.
  • I went pretty far in the novel I’m writing and reached a quarter of the way through.

February

  • I lost my iPhone and went on a huge search for it. Turns out I dropped it in the store where my mum works, and security footage showed the thief. It was passed to the police but nothing came out of it.
  • James returned from his trip to Hong Kong and we had a breakfast date.
  • I finally caught up on watching Doctor Who. Seb, Ryan and James convinced me to watch it. I was all done with the fifth season just before the sixth came out.

March

  • Became really good friends with Michael.
  • James helped me reboot my laptop, Fin, completely. He was upgraded to Windows 7 and I shifted things around to my external hard drive and reinstalled all my programs.
  • My iTunes borked and as a result I had to re-add all my music. All play counts and playlists were lost.
  • I ran from university to the train station to catch my train in six minutes. What a beast. ๐Ÿ˜›
  • I voted for the first time in an election.

April

  • Got a new laptop battery.
  • Bailed on my ex-boyfriend (who is one of my good friends). He asked me to go to a barbecue but instead I went to the forest and had a picnic with James, Lilian and Michael.
  • Went to Galaxy World (arcade games) with James, Michael, Andy and a bunch of other engineering students and played bumper cars. There was a kid there who played every game, on his own, and he looked like he had no life.
  • Applied for a scholarship for the first time.
  • Spent time with Michael at the Chinese Garden of Friendship, taking photos. Went home and found that I had forgotten my keys and the boys had to keep me company until my parents and brother got home late at night.
  • Went to James’s house and we made muffins, but they came out very bad. We made tacos, though. ๐Ÿ˜‹
  • Got my new phone, and named him Roranicus.

May

  • Got back into one of my favourite bands, Blur.
  • My tutor gave me a nasty mark for my assignment, and this is where I began to severely dislike her and find her very biased.
  • It was my dad’s birthday and we went to a Korean buffet.
  • Ryan realised that for three years, he had the wrong number under my name in his phonebook. Dahlia and I laughed at him so much.
  • James and I went to the beach and had bagels for the first time. Definitely not an Australian thing.
  • Got addicted to Minecraft.
  • Bought my favourite red scarf.
  • Hated my tutor even more.

June

  • Spent hours bitching about a stupid program called Greenstone that I had to deal with for class.
  • Yelled “fuck you” in public to an insolent man on the bus.
  • Tried a massage chair for the first time with James.
  • Was finally done with that horrid subject from that horrid tutor.
  • Started my winter photography class and James and I went to the beach again for bagels at the shop near the beach.

July

  • Krissy and I met and had breakfast in a cafe.
  • Found out that the lesion in my chest is fine, and it’s not cancerous. Thank goodness.
  • Won tickets to one of my favourite bands’ shows, Avenged Sevenfold, as well as a merchandise pack. The hoodie was so huge. ๐Ÿ˜† I had a blast at the show though.

August

  • Got diagnosed with a full colon.
  • Went on a gluten-free diet for several weeks, and ate so much fibre during this time. I experienced a lot of pain.
  • Took an oral enema to flush out my system. It really did me a lot of good.
  • Was selected for a photoshoot but it turned out to be a semi-scam. ๐Ÿ˜ž
  • Went to the old milk bar two towns out of university. It was a quaint experience.
  • Crashed Lilian’s lecture. I got to catch up with her and meet her university friends. ๐Ÿ˜„

September

  • Cleaned out a lot of the junk in my room and sold some of it.
  • Got my new digital camera, a Canon 1000D.
  • Started a new job as a web designer. Got stuck in a stairwell because I forgot that only the door at the bottom opens from the inside.
  • My relatives came over from Indonesia to visit – my aunts, uncles, and one of my cousins.

October

  • My cousin in Australia got married and we attended her wedding.
  • Struggled with one of my photography classes as I was the only one doing it as an elective subject.
  • Became good friends with Johnny and Fern.
  • Bumped into my ex-boyfriend Kiah, again, but this time in the subway near university. He was busking by juggling and playing a harmonica.
  • My dad started painting our corkboard floor with floor polish. The family spent a lot of time jumping over furniture and bits of floor to make sure we didn’t step on it.

November

  • Went to my primary school Spring Fair. It was a hot day and my dad and brother and I just ate some of the food there and browsed the stalls. I bumped into my fifth grade teacher and we caught up a little!
  • Celebrated the end of my best photography class of the year with Johnny and Fern.
  • Won tickets to see Jebediah in concert.
  • Had a huge argument with my mum, didn’t see Jebediah. I was so cut.
  • Decided to take part in a depression study and was medically diagnosed with depression. I got put on antidepressants, Efexor-XR (venlafaxine) and it started like hell.
  • I went for a job interview and got a new job, and I ended up loving it. So much.
  • I watched a heck of a lot of Futurama. ๐Ÿ˜„

December

  • James and I saw Explosions in the Sky in concert and were completely blown away.
  • James returned to blogging.
  • James and I saw Bob Evans and Adalita at a music restaurant. Our first dinner date, ever. It was a beautiful concert. I met Kevin Mitchell (Bob Evans).
  • Lilian and I caught up for the first time in a long time!
  • Began cleaning out my websites. Big time.
  • Bought Christmas presents for my family. None of them expected it since we don’t give each other presents much.
  • Saw Jebediah in concert. It was amazing. I met Chris Daymond and Vanessa Thornton.

Happy new year guys! I hope 2012 brings you much joy and happiness. โ™ฅ๏ธ Let me know what your resolutions and plans are. ๐Ÿ˜„

Comments on this post

wow it sounds like 2011 was a good year for you too! i think 2011 was wonderful, and my highlight of the year was definitely visiting london ๐Ÿ˜„ (a dream came true!)

i also lost all of my songs on itunes last year. it was a horrible job adding everything back again, but i’m sure you know that already!!

ohh i remember you lost your iphone, that was really bad luck!!
anyway which phone do you have now? was it the samsung galaxy??

i wrote new year resolutions last year, but i didn’t manage to complete all of them. i was pretty optimistic about my too-long list of new year resolutions in the beginning of 2011, though this year i’m wiser and i’ll cut it down and make it possible, haha!! ๐Ÿ˜„
one of the goals of 2012 will definitely be “work harder with school” was i want to have more time with the site this year.

aww thank yoouuu! let’s hope 2012 will bring us even more happiness, and no toubles with itunes haha! ๐Ÿ˜„ happy new year โ™ฅ๏ธ

Aww, I love this! โ™ฅ๏ธ
Happy New Year Georgie, I hope you have a smashing year! ๐Ÿ˜„

AWESOME 2011! So many good and bad things happening (depression?? O_O am sure you’re okay now right?)

But 2012 is going to be an awesome year. I love that 101 over 1001 days but I hate time periods and deadlines so I think a bucket list would suffice. It gives me the freedom but also the urgency (somehow no deadlines even give me the urgency to do something ๐Ÿ˜†) to accomplish these things. You can check them out in my About page but I realize I need more specific goals like the ones you posted. Exciting to post more ๐Ÿ˜€

HOPE YOU HAVE A HAPPY 2012 ๐Ÿ™‚ hahahaha

Happy new year, Georgina! I hope you have a new year filled with love, laughter and light. xox

Hello Georgina, Happy New Year!

Anyways, hope you have a good 2012, I’m planning an awesome year online and offline. Hope to set things straight with some of my long-time-no-see friends, and get some new ones as well!

Have fun in 2012, talk to you soon!

(BTW Thanks for the PHP help. ๐Ÿ˜„)

Happy new year to you too, Michael. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you have a good 2012 and make a lot of new friends. ๐Ÿ˜„

Came here from jynxedpanda (yeah we’re both Tiff K) and I have to say, you have such a gorgeous site! I found the 101 in 1001 thing rather inspiring and may want to do the same as well. ๐Ÿ˜›

Ahha, have a wonderful new year this 2012! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy New Year, Georgina ๐Ÿ˜„! I hope for the best 2012 year you can find! You must have some holiday blogging tradidions going on. Looking back on your year is awesome because you can just look back on what you did and what happened ๐Ÿ˜„! And it’s just another good year. Good luck with your 101 in 1001! ๐Ÿ˜„! Speaking about 101 in 1001, I made one in my freshmen/sophomore year! I wonder how I did without looking at it.

There’s a lot that’s going on for you ๐Ÿ˜„! My deepest apologies to you- for lagging on the fanlisting -__-! I thought winter break was going to be easy for me, but my all city practices are extended :/. But It’s going to get done ๐Ÿ˜„.

A lot of things went on with you this year! Surprisingly, I remember all of these things that happened from your blogs ๐Ÿ˜›! You and James are really close, it’s just cute to see a relationship like that ๐Ÿ™ƒ! It’s something I don’t see often here.

Speaking about Minecraft, I thought I was addicted to it by spending like an hour a day playing it. But my brother is really into it with all of that mods and stuff ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

You went on a handful of concerts! It must be an amazing experience you can carry on in life ๐Ÿ˜›! As a band person myself, I don’t watch concerts often. But when I do, it’s just other bands performing- it’s not even a concert then!

My resolution.. I can’t think of any seeing how this is my last year of high school :/. I’d say, “Stop picking on the underclassmen” ๐Ÿ˜†!

Our All City band purposely doesn’t have woodwinds because the creators of the band wanted it to be unique. I can’t blame them! ๐Ÿ˜†!

I always wanted to get soaked on a ride at Disneyland, but not if I don’t get the full experience! I wanted to scream at the ride ๐Ÿ˜ฆ!

I think the people who bitched at you for winning so many credits are the selfish people. Thinking about themselves instead of being happy for you like a good sport ๐Ÿ˜ฆ!

Take care and enjoy your new year ๐Ÿ™ƒ!

Happy New Year, Georgina!

I agree with you about 2012 being great. At least that’s what I’m hoping since 2011 wasn’t really the best year I can remember. I’m a bit scared to recap my 2011, in case it turns up being the lamest year in recent memory. Hahaha.

“I donโ€™t see the new year as the only time to turn over a new leaf, or make a new goal, or shoot for the stars.” <– Yup! I think we sell ourselves short by trying to get everything sorted out at the beginning of the year. We'll end up missing chances and opportunities. Sounds lame, though, but that's my two cents on it.

And, I agree that Windows definitely offers you much more options. Before I bought my laptop, I was doing a lot of comparisons between getting a Windows laptop or a Mac one and the checklist for Windows was much longer than the Mac one. Plus, I'm a bit averse to the elitism and snobbery that the employees at the Apple Store exhibit whenever I went there.

Oh man! I can read your letters to a domain again! They were so cute, and I love them. Also, I love the jelly layout – it has bubbles!

That is a long list of things that you have there. And surprisingly, or not surprisingly, I recognize a lot of them because I’ve been reading your blog for more than a year now. I guess that time does fly by, and after seeing that list, I am very happy that I have a blog.

Good luck on your 101 in 1001, and Happy New Year!

Looks as if you had a pretty busy year ๐Ÿ™‚
I recognize a lot from your list – y’know, being the avid reader I am ๐Ÿ˜

Hope you had a great New Years Eve and all the best for 2012. ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep being amazing!

I am not recapping on my 2011. What a horrible year. 2012 cannot get anywhere near as bad so that’s a wonderful thing. You accomplished a hell of a lot, wow impressive stats I think.
I had to change my website look, the clouds pissed me off, hahaha.

A MAC is more compatible then you think actually … I might do a blog on the programs I have found that are compatible with the MAC and are free … They say once you go MAC you never go back, I have to say that’s a true statement indeed. Also there is a program where you can use WIN platform programs on a MAC and it’s free to download. My sis and her hubby have always had a MAC. I didn’t realise what the fuss was about but now I do. I have everything MAC now … I even got rid of my Android tablet and bought an iPad. I know, I am a shocker!!!

I am starting my second semester of my masters in February. If I can get a full year in I will be totally happy with just this alone. Enjoy graduation, it’s lots of fun โ™ฅ๏ธ

Aw your layout was really pretty! But the current one is really quite awesome as well. I was liking the lighter look though. ๐Ÿ˜›

Well I have used a Mac! I just didn’t like it as much. I used one throughout last year when it came to pretty much all university work. It just wasn’t for me. I didn’t mind it, but when it comes to a permanent computer I’d rather get Windows… also, it’s cheaper and it’s fine, so if that works for me I’d rather that. x)

I can’t believe some of these things happened as early in the year as they did. It especially doesn’t seem like your colon problems, the red scarf, or Greenstone and your evil tutor were that long ago. It’s amazing how time flies when we look back at it but seems to pass so slowly from day to day.

I still haven’t started knitting my scarf. At this rate, I won’t even have it done before spring! I’ll go get some yarn before I go back to school, then I can just knit whenever I feel like it, although with my practicing goals and with how much I’ve actually felt like reading lately, I don’t know when I’ll have time! I can read less, I suppose. At least knitting a scarf has a finite end and once it’s done it’s done. Are you still thinking of crocheting yours instead of knitting it?

I hope this year will be as bright for you as you’re anticipating. ๐Ÿ™‚

Seb told me that he couldn’t believe I only rebooted Fin a year ago. I forgot I really got closer to Mike less than a year ago as well. It was quite surprising going back on all my posts, and even then, I just skimmed. I’m really glad to have a blog. Piss Greenstone though, that seemed like years ago. /poo

I might crochet mine, I was more heading in that direction because I watched that tutorial, but my boss said knitting was also pretty easy. I still need tools. I guess I’ll have to decide soon. If it isn’t done by this autumn, that’s alright… I can wear it the autumn after! ๐Ÿ˜

I don’t do any goal making or anything – which is kind of sad when you think about it. Maybe I have one goal this year – to see Anti-Flag again. Which I did find out when I seen Chris Head play with White Wives that Anti-Flag IS going to do another US tour, so woohoo. And I want to see my friend Roger play with his new band…and move to Pittsburgh before the end of the year. Wow I guess I do have goals but I don’t think of them as goals – if that makes any sense.

And I remember a great deal of what happened for you in the past year – that sounds kind of creepy if you’re not into reading blogs and such. Ha ha. Congrats on all the big points in your life too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy 2012 to you too Georgie! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ahh, that’s one of the things I don’t like about the new year; I always get the date wrong on my papers. I always wear down my erasers by having to go back and fix them, haha.

It does look like you have an exciting year ahead of you! I love it when I have things to look forward to throughout the year. I suppose I have a lot of big things happening for me this year, too, with heading off to college and whatnot. Though, thinking about that seems to get me more nervous more than anything.

I like having a blog and being able to look back at how I’ve changed (or not changed) in the past year and to remember the smaller details that I thought were important enough to blog about, and that I might’ve forgotten if I hadn’t written them down. I’m a bit too lazy to lay it all out like you’ve done in your post, but it’s fun to look back and see how far we’ve come. ๐Ÿ™‚

You had an exciting 2011! I hope 2012 is a great year for you! ๐Ÿ˜„

Happy New Year Georgina โœŒ๏ธ ! I have never really thought of new year as a new leaf, i kind of do what you do and just make a long list and try to finish it off when i can haha. You have done a lot this year, i could never keep up with the things i do, i can’t even remember what i did last month ๐Ÿ˜… . Any who, i hope you finish your 101 in 1001 list!
Today i actually went to my first ever concert! I love them now and is kind of obsessed haha. It is a great way to start off the new year! ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a nice day, or night i don’t know haha ๐Ÿ‘
P.S: I โ™ฅ๏ธ your similes! They are so adorable!!! This one is my favorite ๐Ÿ’ฃ haha too cute

-Millie โ˜บ๏ธ

Georgina, Happy New Year! โ™ฅ๏ธ You really had an awesome 2011!
Hoping for a wonderful year this 2012! ๐Ÿ™‚

I always write the wrong year when it’s a new one. Actually, I just did it when I wrote down the movie I’m going to order. ๐Ÿ˜„ It also take me a couple of days to get used to it.

As far as any goals and such, I don’t really have any. Atleast not in real life, lol.

I can’t even remember what all went on this year. But I don’t care to remember since it was probably shitty anyway.

You might be sad to know (I doubt it thought, but what the hell, lol) that I’ve quit the website thing for good. No blogging, no fanlistings, nothing. I just wasn’t into it anymore. Anyway, I still stop by your site and read your blogs when I can… cause I like them. ๐Ÿ™‚ And the new layouts you made are great. I might use them on Neopets, if you mind. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you have a great 2012! See ya around and enjoy your summer. ๐Ÿ™‚

A little weather fact: Here in Indiana, USA, it hasn’t even snowed yet and it’s January. No snow for Christmas, which was sucky.

Vanessa, how could you?! Nah, I’m just kidding. I noticed already that you closed all your fanlistings. That’s alright though, you’re still going to have a presence on Neopets I see? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope I’ll still see you around. I don’t think I could ever give up for good – at least I don’t see that happening any time soon. You’re more than welcome to use the layouts, but just link back here if that’s at all possible. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you have a wonderful January! Take care and I hope you get some snow soon. โ™ฅ๏ธ

Wow. That is one interesting 2011 for you. Congrats on going to so many concerts. I’ve never even been to one, but that’s not surprising. ๐Ÿ˜›

Happy New Year, btw. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also posted that, it’s on the main blog on DudeThatsErin.net ๐Ÿ™‚ I had to have a lot more categories though because, I didn’t want to have 30 to one category. ๐Ÿ˜†

I can’t believe you can remember a year ago. I can remember the highlights but I can’t remember anything like that. WOW! Good memory. ๐Ÿ‘
———————————–
That’s exactly what I did. Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

That is what I plan on doing. Every time I go to any restaurant, even though it isn’t the healthiest thing at a restaurant, I am getting a salad and then a meal. No more appetizers…if my family does get one, I’ll have one onion ring or one cheese stick. Nothing like I had before. Which is good. We went to McDonald’s on my youngest sister’s birthday (she’s crazy) and I got a salad and a 4 piece there. Not the healthiest thing, but healthier than what I’ve eaten in a long time. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy new year (passed, I guess) Georgina ๐Ÿ™‚ ! I also hope that this year will be great, well, at least greater than this year.

I saw great updates on your blog. I first noticed that the ‘georgie’ becomes ‘about’, and the ‘archives’ becomes ‘blog archives’ LOL ๐Ÿ˜› . And I am relieved to see that your writings are moved here, because I tried accessing your letters website but I always failed. I really love your letters for domains ๐Ÿ˜„ .

Wow, you did great on recapping the year! I cannot do such a thing…well, I can, but I’m too lazy ๐Ÿ™ . Oh, and thank you for making me convinced to buy a Samsung Galaxy phone. I bought one a few days ago ๐Ÿ˜ .

Haha, so it is.

I hope so. I used to think it would not be able to maintain a long-distance relationship, but I think you can do, if two people are involved and want the relationship to work. I also hope to see him more in the new year ๐Ÿ˜…

If we work hard, of course we can. I agree with you, hard work always pays off. Sure.

I’m glad you spent time with your family during Christmas.

Happy New Year, Georgina! I hope you have a good 2012 ๐Ÿ™‚

You had a amazing 2011, with its good and the bad times. I remember when you lost your iPhone. And I’m glad you had the chance to go to many concerts during 2011.
My resolution for 2012 is to have a better year than 2011, with more highlights and fewer shadows.
*hugs* โ˜บ๏ธ

I had a great Christmas thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚ It was just nice to spend some time with my family.

Happy new year!!

I was going to do one of those questionnaire things and post it on my Tumblr, but I’d almost finished typing it out and I accidentally pressed a short-cut on my keyboard and my browser closed. It didn’t save and I couldn’t be bothered to type it all out again, haha!

Good luck with your 101 in 1001 list. I tried to do this last year but I couldn’t think up 101 things I wanted to do. I think I will have another go in the near future.

I have made a few resolutions, such as to stop biting my nails and and to book some driving lessons. I had my first experience of driving yesterday. It scared me but at the same time it has motivated me to hurry up and learn.

It’s the same thing for me. The New Years isn’t where I try to make a new goals. For me, it is usually on my birthday instead.
I think you have a great year ahead of you. I am going to love the year I finish my bachelor’s degree. It seems so far away!
I love making lists, then checking them off, then making the list again saying I completed all these things. ๐Ÿ™‚
I remember the blogs you recapped. I have always loved recaps because I’m still amazed with the concept of linear time. There was a then and this is now. And when that was now I was there! (You can tell I don’t get out much.) ๐Ÿ™‚

your year sounds soooo eventful! i think blogging is such a great way to just keep track of your year round life haha. 2012 will be a great year ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey Georgie! Wow that’s a LOT of stuff to have done in one year! But I’m glad you got to see Jebediah after all! ๐Ÿ˜„.

Everyone learns something new, you’re never to old for that. I never knew you were antidepressants! ๐Ÿ˜ง . That’s what I learned! There’s nothing wrong with the car itself, just has a slight defect to it. Also, a beetle (new) is really great on gas though. If you fix up your trans, I’m sure it will be a better car. Though it’s worth a LOT of money to fix up a trans. :/ . That’s why I never saved up to have it fixed. And now the beetle is in my dad’s possession which is okay. It’s a pay off for the bill I owed. on the cell phone. We did make a trade on that. He keeps the car for the payment on the phone and I don’t have to do anything ๐Ÿ™‚. Okay by me!

Yeah I agree, better to buy a car (used) from someone you really know. I’m pretty sure when and if I get my car, it will be fair, and I will ask questions on it before buying it. Ya know? Like are the tags good? Is everything in it good etc.etc. I can’t really jot down the questions right now. As school is a major priority right now. But I will eventually jot them down. ๐Ÿ™‚. But I do agree, a little extra never hurts anyone ๐Ÿ™‚.

When we first talked on Skype, I was a bit nervous too. I always get nervous when talking to new people. Even if I’ve known them for a long time or not. It’s the same with a date! I especially didn’t think that would happen to me on the last one. I am trying a different site. I know I said I wouldn’t, but eh, if it happens it happens. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. I did meet a nice guy on there though. He wants me to bring a friend when we go out on a date. But we’re gonna take our time to get to know each other first and NOT rush into it. Which is how it should be. ๐Ÿ™‚. He’s really nice. He’s Chinese, and we both like the same thing WEB-DESIGN! ๐Ÿ˜„ And making movies heehee.

Wow, you guys planned out a lot for your relatives when they came and visited you guys for one week? That’s awesome! Yeah we gotta do that too!! I’m sure we’ll be nervous but more excited then nervous when we first meet in person. I’m sure you were that way when you met Krissy? But the nerves will eventually die down soon if you don’t think about it. A lot of people who are fans of Ghost Adventures, keeps asking me what will I do if I met them in person and I told them flat out I don’t think about it. If I think about it, it will only get me MORE nervous, and more anxious to meet them and I’ll be headed for a melt down if I don’t ever get to meet them. So I try not to think of it. So that’s what I’m doing with us. Trying not to think of what to say, or what to wear when we meet. God knows where I will be at that time ๐Ÿ˜› or with that guy even ๐Ÿ˜›. But, it’s all good. So who knows? And I will tell you this as to what he told me, if all works out and we want to take the relationship to the next level, he will move me and my kitty in ๐Ÿ™‚. WOO! ๐Ÿ˜„ lol.

I know what you mean. i’m not one to usually make resolutions. i guess i just mentally have goals in mind that i am in the process of accomplishing. hope 2012 is a great new year for you !! โ™ฅ๏ธ

Happy New Year, Georgie! My, that’s a long, long post. You really had an eventful year, I’m glad you got to do loads of stuff ๐Ÿ˜„ Really envious that you blog so much that you can list up so much stuff~

Off topic, but I love the layout you made on glassfields.net. ๐Ÿ˜› If I weren’t trying to get away from grey so much, I’d know exactly what I want for 6birds.net.

I recapped on 2011. Mostly a lot of irrelevant (and possibly boring) 2011 reflecting and junk – 2250 words worth – but still. It’s really personal, and a lot of last year is explained in it (and possibly even a lot of my behavior).

I should so make my ‘bucket list’ my 101 in 1001 list. ๐Ÿ™‚

I didn’t recap like this, though. Yours is all organized. Mine’s more like an organized mess or something. >.>

Sounds like you had a great year Georgie!~ ๐Ÿ™‚

I like this style of blog post too, it’s kind of fun looking back at the whole year like that. It just shows how much can happen in a year.

Good luck with your new course at university, I’m sure you’ll be fine though. It sounds like an interesting course too. I’m also hoping to do postgraduate study, yay for signing my soul away to education. haha ๐Ÿ˜†

Ah, I need to sleep earlier too. My sleeping pattern goes crazy when I am not at university.

I think also its awesome that you got to meet some of your favourite musicians. ๐Ÿ˜„

Happy new year~~ *huggles*

<3

Wow, it seems like you had quite an eventful 2011! I hope 2012 is a great year for everyone!

I don’t believe in the “new year, new me” thing, either. It’s just another day, really.

The biggest things that happened to me in 2011 was that I learned who my true friends are. Instead of having several close-ish friends, I now have two friends that I can tell anything. I no longer need the extra baggage of unnecessary “friends” who end up stabbing me in the back. I’m way past that.

2011 was also a big year for my mental illnesses. They raised in severity and things were crazy. It was absolute hell at some points. But at least I’m going into 2012 with a happier state of mind. Hopefully 2012 brings a year of happiness for me and everyone else!

Wow Georgie, that is A LOt that happened for you and you remembered it. I honestly cant even remember what happened like 1 hour ago…it comes with old age lol
But I really do wish everyone does accomplish what they have set out for in 2012. I feel its going to be a great year too…I hope my personal statistics are correct hehe

Umm as for my new year resolutions…I want to do 5 things for sure. Move to a new house, start meeting new people and forget about the old, lose more weight, exercise a lot, and find that MONEY TREE to start on a long journey of phd-ness

Much love from me. Hope all your wishes come true this year

Hello, I hope you’re loving 2012 so far. ๐Ÿ™‚ It seems a lot has happened to you in 2011. I hope your 2012 will be as eventful but a lot more happier than your 2011. ๐Ÿ™‚

I like “tags” so I guess I might answer those questionnaires. Thanks for sharing them. ๐Ÿ™‚

The 101 in 1001 days sounds like a good idea. I think I might make my own too since it sounds really helpful in organizing goals.

Wow… didn’t notice it was actually a year ago since you’ve met Ben Jorgensen! Haha, how time flies. I can still remember that blog entry like it was yesterday. ๐Ÿ˜ That was quite a recap of how your 2011 have been! I failed to do that with mine – so I hope by this year, I can chronicle moments and have a recap when 2013 comes! Hahaha. Or maybe — do a mid-year recap instead. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Good luck on your 101 on 1001 list. I hope I can also make a list like that. Feels like my life is so boring right now. ๐Ÿ˜“ Haha! Just kidding. It’s just that I suck at time management but hopefully — this year will be different. :”)

Happy New Year, Georgina! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for being an awesome friend and host. ๐Ÿ˜„ Also, I know this is out-of-topic already but I want to say that I totally love your new free layouts! *u*

Ah, I clicked the “Submit” button immediately. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Happy New Year, Wuggs! /frog

:3 I’m glad I’m in a few of those month mentions. โ˜บ๏ธ โ˜บ๏ธ

Overall, sounds like you had quite the fun year! ๐Ÿค“ *huggu* I hope 2012 is good to both of us ๐Ÿ˜ฐo

๐Ÿ‘

:love: Happy New Year Georgie!
Man… your 2011 is sooo colorful! I mean to post some recap too… but that will have to wait in a few. Hopefully I don’t forget it. /um

Your year seemed to have been filled with lots of music / concert, photographs, and colorful moments. How is your diagnosis of full colon? Hope all is well now. I’m scared on my polyp diagnosis. I didn’t get into further evaluation. ๐Ÿ™ oh well. Maybe someday. I really dig the part where you got a canon. ๐Ÿ™‚ I just got mine a month or so back. ๐Ÿ˜†

I wish you a prosperous and joyous new year! ๐Ÿ’—
