2013, Twenty-Thirteen, Two-Thousand-and-Thirteen.

First things first...HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Here is a very hipster photo I took of the sparklers we had on NYE!

Last night was so lovely. BBQ, alcohol, a pool, New friends, One very old and dear friend and...certain happenings which I will not divulge in fear of embarrassing the concerned party.

It all started at 3pm, well I got to Graces and Andrews at 3pm and thus commenced the drinking. Grace made this super punch which when anyone asked What's in it? she simply replied You don't want to know. We migrated to a house that was 5 minute walk from theirs and enjoyed the pool and BBQ and the general splendour of a lovely afternoon and evening. Grace and I, with the help of alcohol braved the pool in our bikinis which in itself was amazing. 10 points to the Pastey Whiteys!

I didn't take any photos because Andrew filmed most of the evening with his "Go Pro" camera either as a time laps or actual video. The footage of the night is amazing so hopefully he'll finish a video soon and I will share it with you all!

So onto Resolutions. Grace is a big New Years Resolution writer and she keeps all her lists from previous years. I've neven been one to write resolutions as with most people I believe they are almost made to be broken. But watching Grace get so into it today (some of her resolutions were even about me!) I found myself thinking about what I want to achieve in 2013.

2012 was a big year for me, officially graduating from Uni, getting a full time design job, taking a road trip around Tassie and so many other fantastic things happened that I want to make 2013 even better.

So the first thing on my list I achieved today, as Andrew, Grace and I had planned to do so. I've never eaten a McDonalds burger...EVER, I know...I know. So January 1st 2013 was the day, and I had one. It tasted as I expected, if not better and naturally my body disagreed with it slightly but none the less I have now had a Big Mac! WEW!

My other, lets call them goals are quite simple:
  • Do more with my time: I've got to start saying yes to more things, going to gigs, seeing friends and staying up past 10pm. 
  • Have a stall at a designery market at least ONCE this year.
  • Keep taking pictures
  • Travel somewhere: whether it be Brisbane, New Zealand or Sweden.
And the final thing, like everyone last night said, Just keep doing what I'm doing. Sure there are things I'd like to improve in my life, namely my singledom (haha) but overall I am extremely blessed and happy. I hope whoever is reading this little blog had a fantastic 2012 NYE and has an even better 2013. I know I'm looking forward to it!

  1. Sounds like you had a great night! I am not one for resolutions either, seeing as I always break them. But considering graduation is a month away I figured having little goals for 2013 would be a good thing. So I have four. 1. To get a full time design job 2. Move out of home 3. Blog more and with quality 4. Save enough money to have an AMAZING christmas and New Year in New York. Hope your 2013 is splendid. :) x
