Reflection: 2013

Hey guys! So New Years Eve is here (or if you're in Australia, like my brother, Happy New Year!!) and as always, it's time for reflection *puts on serious face* To say that 2013 has been a big year for me is an understatement. So here's my highlights!

Starting in July, because not much happened before that besides sixth form and exams! My first proper girls holiday with these lovely lot. I definitely will never forget the week a spent lounging on the beach and drinking Ouzo like it was water. It helped me become more independent with feeding myself and actually getting the correct plane (Knowing me, I could have got on a plane to Greenland and not noticed!) I've already got a ton of ideas for travelling places next year, exciting times!

Finally turning 18 and getting my first tattoo, both long awaited! Although I spent my actual birthday in Kos (I got called Queen Rhiannon and didn't have to lift a finger all day, thanks girls!) I also had a family get together back home, where my talented sister made me this enormous cake. I did a little post on my tattoo here but I'll just say that I don't regret getting it done and still love it!

The first proper weekend (well four day!) long festival. I've been to day festivals before but Reading was my first proper time. Spending four days in a tent with this lovely gal and seeing some of my favourite bands perform will definitely make this year a memorable one. Biffy, Bastille and Eminem have to be up there in my favourites! Plus it was the only time of year when a cider and greasy bacon and egg sandwich was normal for breakfast.

My first day of college and I look way too happy! And to think I knew nothing about the demon that is shorthand and public affairs.... On reflection (becoming a recurring theme!) if I hadn't had gone to Brighton City College, I wouldn't be the same person. I feel like I've really come into myself and if someone had told me that I'd make friends on the course and go out with everyone every week then I probably would've laughed in your face. It was a massive step for me and in the end I just thought, stuff it, I'm not going to be a lonely loser for the whole year. If they're reading, thanks for not letting me be the lonely ginger person I would've been, I appreciate it!

And my final highlight is this blog! Everything But The Kitchen Sink has been my baby for the past year or so and I felt like I've really developed it over that time. I've gotten into a routine, which I'm going to continue into 2014 with some new ideas. Thanks to new and old people who have stuck around and watch this space for new and (hopefully!) better things.

Roll on 2014, I'm ready for you.

Thank you all for supporting this blog and I hope you all have a good New Year!
