The fabulous Neil Gaiman posted the other day about some of his statements to the New Year made in previous years and included this one, which someone poster-fied. I love it:
Last night the boy and I joined some friends and some new acquaintances for New Year's Eve festivities. The company was light, my hair was big, and the drinks were tasty.
It was a good night.
For me, 2011 has been a bit of a rough year. I spent about half of it mostly unemployed. There has been stress about my visa situation. My health kept hitting roadblocks to "good." But it was also a year where good things happened. We had some lovely daytrips, I got to spend a few days with my bestie, the boy and I had an amazing US adventure in the summer, I planned and pulled off BlytheCon UK (and made/strengthened many friendships along the way) and everyday I keep falling more in love with my amazing boyfriend. So while 2011 won't be remembered as my favorite year, it's certainly not been the worst thing for me all-around. Character-building, if nothing else!
Here's to 2012!
