This weekend I have been decorating with the help of my parents. Basicaly, it came up in conversation what I was doing this time last year and how much has changed.
This time last year:
- I had just graduated.
- It was very very hot.
- I had the whole summer to enjoy.
- I had no job to go to every day.
- I was still living with my parents.
- Although I was looking for somewhere to live when I started work, I had not actually found anywhere.
- I hadn’t even contemplated buying somewhere to live.
- Decorating was the last thing on my mind.
- Hearing about those who were going to Global Gathering was absolute torture.
- Many of my friends were disappearing for the year on a post-uni gap year.
I’ve also had a look back on my blog and found a meme and a few things there have changed:
“How many keys are on your keychain?
haha – now that I’ve moved I have 7 keys!
“How many suitcases do you own?
I’m now the proud owner of a suitcase. Not exactly the most exciting etc thing thats changed, but at the time I remember thinking “why and when the hell will I need a suitcase”.
“Do any of your friends have children?
not that i know of (thank god)”
Although none have children yet, a good friend has got married and this has slightly scared me.
“What post code are you in right now?
CV35. tis nice”
Now it’s B1 – city centre, I know! Brilliant for work and I love where I live.
“How many siblings do you have?
none, zip, nada etc…sigh”
Thank goodness this has not changed – that would just be scary beyond words!
“What is the weather like?
sunny and (too) hot and getting hotter”
Haha – do I even have to go into this one?! One thing though – my parent’s village made it onto the national news and even got pictures on the BBC website!
“What personality trait is a must–have in your preferred gender?
its been said before, but someone who can make me laugh, and someone who can cheer me up when im down”
Think that I now havet to add “must be as ambitious as me or at least likes the same things” to that list. Just cos I’ve found out a few things about myself this year.
“Do you like your living arrangement?
not the best, but not the worst”
I love it now. Seriously love it!
“What celebrities have you been compared to?
Mena Suvari. never worked out how they got to that one”
And now Angelina Jolie – I’ve n-e-v-e-r seen such extreme alcohol blindness
Anyways, this blog entry is basically a trip down memory lane and has been a nice recap of the past year of my life. A lot has changed and, although I didn’t think it would be for the best, it has been.
Here’s to another good year of growing, learning and memorable times!
