the twenty ten wrap up

Friday, December 31, 2010 ♥ 6

Five hours left until we usher in the new year! Eeep! I'm really excited for it but at the same time trying to grasp the last few fleeting moments of two thousand and ten. This year really proved to be a spectacular one for me and I'm so, so thankful to God for just being with me throughout!

This was the year I:

♥ celebrated my twentieth birthday ♥ sent Ernest of at the airport ♥ couldn't decide which country to further my studies in  conquered heartache  got even closer to my best friends  finished an obstacle course that was eight storeys high  lost a beloved friend  went on a holiday to China to visit the World Expo  got my hair permanently curled twice in three days because after the first day it went back straight! and now half a year later I've gotten bored and had my locks chopped. I'm always doing something to my hair, sometimes to my own detriment, haha! I love it, though.   hosted my very first Mixtape Swap ♥ celebrated Spain's World Cup glory and basically cried when England got booted out earlier  played a hilarious game of Kings with the gang ♥ went to Australia to attend the University of Queensland  fretted over my subjects ♥ worked hard  by God's grace got my Journalism media dossier picked as one of the exemplar assignments in the course (insane, this never happens to me! I ain't no smarty pants and I still am not. Perhaps my lecturer was being charitable, hee.)  by God's even gracier grace achieved a Dean's Commendation (I still can't quite believe it, and I don't think I will until I hold the certificate in my hands)  enrolled for dance classes so I wouldn't get rusty  had wicked fun in most classes but nearly died in Samba and the more expert hip hop levels ♥ learned burlesque  visited all 5 major amusement parks (Dreamworld, SeaWorld, MovieWorld, White Water World, Wet N' Wild)  fell in love with an amazing guy who makes my world go round ♥ played putt-putt golf  made new lovely friends  visited Mellie near Toowoomba (beautiful farm - they used to produce wheat for Kellogg's! So cool.)  did two silly dance videos with mah kooky girls  watched The Social Network three times in the cinema (love. it.)  caught Kris Allen and Muse live (and I've got my tix for Jimmy Eat World in April next year! the joy!)  held baby Jet for the first time until he fell asleep in my arms. He is the most precious thing evurr ♥ bought my very first copy of Lula in March, and just recently received a year's subscription because the darling Boyfriend loves surprising and inspiring me  cooked new dishes  baked my first apple crumble  and so much more. 

2010, you did me good. Thank you. And thank YOU Jesus for Your hand over everything! All these things would be meaningless without You.

And finally, happy and blessed new year, darling readers and friends! Thanks for an amazing year and for making the blogosphere such a lovely place to be at. Here's to 2011, may it be an exciting adventure for all of us!

Love and rainbow kisses,
Julia x
