1. I assisted on a fashion shoot for Xpress Fashion & absolutely loved every minute. 2. I lost my job... and then got a new one working for Seed Femme at David Jones. 3. My long-term boyfriend and I broke up and he moved out. 4. My sister moved in with me. 5. I turned 21 and celebrated with a huge party (I haven't had a party since year seven!), drank a heinous amount of champagne and had a fantastic time grooving on the dancefloor with all of my favourite people.
6. I saw the Pixies, the Aquabats and Reel Big Fish, Echo & the Bunnymen, Florence and the Machine, Eddie Current Suppression Ring, Ben Kweller, Buddy Guy, Crowded House, Angus & Julia Stone, and many more! 7. I failed two units at university due to some of the horrible personal things that happened. 8. I went to ten 21sts. My wallet and liver are glad THAT is over. 9. My beautiful nan passed away. 10. I got an SLR camera for my 21st and still adore it.
11. I worked on two editions of The Western Independent, as a sub and as a chief-of-staff. 12. I went through a freak storm in Perth that terrified me and destroyed half the city! 13. I interviewed Evil Eddie, Los Capitanes, Patrick Hughes, and Lacey. 14. The internship I did the interviews for was unceremoniously canceled, which was a bit of a bummer. 15. I spent a lot of time with my best girlfriends and loved every second of it.
16. I met a boy and fell pretty head over heels. 17. I learned to cook and found that I was actually rather good. 18. I lost my passion for writing... then found it again. 19. I was the sickest I've been in about three years and spent a night having hallucinations about Adobe InDesign! 20. I dyed my hair red (something I've wanted to do for years and years) and am quite enjoying life as a ginger.
I can't wait for 2011. 2010 kicked my ass and I ended the year in a completely different direction than what I imagined. I had some amazing experiences and am really thankful for everything that happened... but I have a feeling 2011 will be full of even bigger and better things and I can't wait to get started!
How was your 2010?
