Happy New Year

Well, first off I would like to wish all readers who might be lurking a very (slightly belated) happy new year, whatever it might bring.  I know it has been a long time since I last posted anything, but alas, life got in the way and I found myself neglecting my duties a little...

So here we are, a new year, a new start for some, a time to write resolutions for others (then promptly blow them, in some cases!), and for others just another ordinary 365 days.

Me?  Well, 2011 was a year of studies, adventure, new friendships and coming into a deeper place spiritually.  I can definitely look back and say that I learnt a great deal - on many different levels - last year.  My course at uni gradually seems to be making more sense as I see all the building blocks starting to fit together.  It is, however, far more fast-paced now I'm halfway through my third year (where have the last 2 gone??)...sometimes I feel like there is so much to learn and far too little time to learn it!  The coming year promises to be even more intense - my timetable for the next semester seems to be fairly jam-packed, anyway...

My hopes for 2012 include making new friendships and deepening old, getting a half reasonable grade in the end of year exams, getting some work experience during the summer (and hopefully fitting some adventure in too!), keeping in a reasonable state of fitness, and working on various personal qualities (...timekeeping...ahem... :p).  But above all, I want to be able to come away from 2012 knowing that I have made the most of the time I've been given, become a year wiser and more experienced, and changed for the better along the way.  Though there are bound to be a fair share of downs as well as ups, I'm hoping the ups will by far outweigh the downs.

Oh yes, and I have resolved to try and write more, so you had better keep me to it!  :)

All the best,


Ps.  I would love to hear what your hopes and fears are for 2012...
