Goodbye 2010!

December 31, 2010

Its the last day of 2010, wow! I have said it before but this year passed so quickly! I began this year on a low - A friend and I had a "thing", which ruined our friendship and caused all sorts of drama around New Years Eve '09. And here I sit on the last evening of the year reflecting on 2010 and I can say that I am fully happy with every decision I made during the year!

2010:
My blog was born! I wanted to make a blog for quite a while and finally did so in May 2010. I am proud that my little blog has grown this big, I never imagined it would. While I appreciate every single comment, email and person that follows my blog - "followers" is just a number and I would still be doing this whether I had 5 or 50 followers. That said, it does make my heart happy to know new people discover and enjoy my blog enough to subscribe to it! (Thank you all)
I took a break from photographing concerts. It turns out a little break was just what I needed to open my eyes and inspire me again.
I got to see blink 182 in concert. I go to concerts all of the time and its not a big deal but seeing blink perform was incredible. They were a big part of my early teenage years and I was devastated when they split up!
I proved to myself that you can do anything if you really want it. Or maybe it was just luck.. But I really wanted to work for Forever 21. I never worked in retail and was group interviewed in a room with 20 other girls who had years of experience, I got the job. (and later quit because they're not a great company but ssh!)
Of course there was lots of other things too: I met new people, reconnected with some old friends and cut out the bad ones. Partied, found my first grey hair, joined a protest, had lots of great nights out, bought a new camera, discovered lots of great bands, lost 15lbs then gained it all back along with 2lbs extra, I gained more confidence, wore lots of pretty dresses and of course my teenage years came to an end - though I still feel much younger on the inside!

My top four outfits of 2010:




♥ a] in bloom, b] sailor chic, c] over the knee, d] nude is back


I hope you all have a wonderful New Years Eve, see you all in 2011!

xoxo
