This time last year…
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!

Hehe, don’t think I want to dwell on this time last year – did cross my mind but settled on a happy birthday text instead. I’ve now been single for a year woohoo! – despite my efforts to the contrary over the last few months.
Anywho glad things have gone overall to the good for you these past 12 months, hope the trend continues!

I’ve been on/off single for a good few months now, but I’m having a really good time! It’s really nice not to have to endlessly worry about another person. What they think of you, what they’re doing etc. I only have to think about me. Yes, there are the lonely times (double bed, only one person for example), but hopefully they won’t last forever. So I suppose I live in hope, but in the mean time I am and I am planning to have as much fun with my young life as I can before all the responsibilities really kick in.
Hope you’re ok and keep having fun! Sounds cheesy, but make the most of life – you only get one and this is the only time in it when you have the freedom choose what to do with it.
