Archive for December, 2011

As usual, I’ve failed to write an awful lot of blogs, again.  Sorry. 

It has been a very busy year though.  Let’s talk about it a little…

First of all, it looks like I wont make my 50 book challenge again, no surprises there.  On the other hand, I did successfully complete my first year of university with a bucketful of credits and distinctions – so failing the 50 book challenge doesn’t feel like such a failure after all.  Woo!

Second, I almost finished making this sweater that I began and re-began many times.

My Nan who died just recently, the day after my final mid year exam to be exact.  The last conversation we had was how glad I was to be finished my first lot of exams.  The next day she was gone.  She was only 65.  Cancer.  She was however extremely impressed with my knitting and crochet skills, a little bit jealous of my tension even.  My Nan left me all her knitting things and a pretty sweet sewing machine, it has a bunny stitch.  Wish I could’ve shown her I finally nailed the above sweater though.  (I still need to knit the waistband though).  I also wish I could tell her I learned how to knit cables recently too.

Then I went New Zealand – It was

AWESOME.  I bungy jumped in Queenstown.  See!!

I am standing on the edge so long because it got quite windy, the man wouldn’t let me jump till it stopped.

While I was in New Zealand the Final Harry Potter film ever was released.  I saw it in Dunedin.  I didn’t pack much of a costume, because we had to lug wintery clothes all around New Zealand, so I wore this…

Not to mention I fell in love with New Zealand.  I want to live there.  Every little piece of it is beautiful.  Coming home was disappointing.

Then I went back to Uni.  My cat and I studied really, really hard.

And it paid off, which I mentioned before.  Credits and Distinctions!

He was one of the best study buddies I had, open to all the ideas I ran past him.  Although he did tend to fall asleep a lot, I guess he though Contemporary Australian Literature was boring.

And then all of a sudden it was the end of the year already and we were all ‘seriously? ‘what the actual f@$!?’  and I started Summer Session, taking a subject called Australian Literature for Young Readers.   Next week it’ll be Christmas.  But I don’t feel very Christmas-y this year.  I have made some snowflake decorations and made a cute little Christmas Stick.  But the joyful excitement has not shown up yet. 

My boyfriend also bought me the coolest bike ever, it is my Christmas present, but we got them in November.

I hope I find the Christmas cheer.  Missing my childhood.

Happy Holidays people of the world.
