Where do I begin with the year that was 2010. It was a year full of failing and success all at the same time. It was the year I was proved everything happens for a reason and I know it was one of the best years of my life.
Straight out of school I had no idea where I was going for the future. In March I started a bachelor of Commerce at uni and after my results from the first semester decided maybe uni wasn't for me right now. I don't regret the experience and some amazing friends that I met along the way.
The middle of the year a well deserved holiday was had to the Gold Coast with one of my best friends and having the most amazing time ever we have booked to go again at the start of 2011.
Not having school to socialise with friends made keeping them all that much harder this year and actually having to make an effort really showed who my true friends are.
My birthday was definelty a highlight of the year. Having my friends over, getting trashy then having the best night I've ever had in town was the best way to celebrate turning 19. It was the night I can only remember from photographs and stories but will never forget.
I really only made one mistake for the year and he's not even worth talking about.
Coming to the end of the year I was really starting to stress what I was going to be doing. Deferring uni and only working casually I wasn't sure where I was headed. Declining some amazing opportunites to travel I was starting to have regrets. It wasn't until I landed one of the best jobs I dare say I will ever have. The 3-4 months I have spent there I have loved. It makes getting up daily easier and it came at a perfect time. I have met some of the most valuable people I will ever meet with every day I spend with them I cerish so dearly.
The year ended with a new car (due to riding off the little laser), new job, no boy drama, amazing friends, life experience and the wanting to do it all over again.
It's now the last week of the year 2010 and reflecting back makes me crave for more adventure. Having already planned a trip to Queensland, tickets to Bieber, Usher and Supafest it's already set to be a memborable one.
The life lessons I learnt from 2010 were; remember who was there for you, when one door closes another one opens and to grab an opportunity with open hands.
