Christmas and new year reflections

Hey Peeps did you guys have a nice Christmas?
Mines was pretty good family came over, got lots of nice presents and ate lots of food you know the drill! My parents are the Grandparents so it's always been a tradition for everyone to come to ours on Christmas and have a huge Christmas Dinner. My parents put a lot of effort into making the home perfect for everyone. My Mum does usually all the decorating and my dad prepares and makes the Christmas dinner which takes most of Christmas Eve and as well as Christmas day.




After everyone left after all playing the wii together which is another tradition. Me, parents and the lovely sat down to veg all that Christmas dinner and watch Dr Who. Still dunno how to feel about it was interesting ha ha!

Offt been thinking about how the year went a lot in general and wanting to answer or sum it all up as either a good or bad year but it's actually been very difficult. I keep looking at all those question thingys people make and thinking about the answers so I might just try to do one of them to help with that. Don't mind if you would like to do it to would be cool to see your answers. :)

1. What was the single best thing that happened this past year?
That's hard to put into one single thing but it's probably spending time with my family and friends more it's made such a difference. :)
2. What was the single most challenging thing that happened?
Probably having to deal the awful living conditions in my old flat was in and old flat 'mates'. Our flat flooded a few times and we had builders in and out constantly which caused more damage and being woken up at 8 every day. Plus we had to breathe in dust and dirt which cause illness five times. Then the Landlord turned nasty four days before we were supposed to leave when we were good tenants and paid rent all year despite what we were going through.
3. What was an unexpected joy this past year?
Taking my Dad to Poland for his birthday which has been a dream of his and being able to let him experience all its history.
My nephew being allowed to come up to my student town after being banned from seeing him for nearly a year.
Daft punk coming back and being more amazing than ever.
4. What was an unexpected obstacle?
Having my work team and my boss create untrue rumours about me and scare mongering me into stopping an enquiry about bullying with threatening lies.
Finding out my Dog has Cancer.
5. Pick three words to describe 2013.
Fast, Social, Human.
6. What were the best books you read this year?
Maus, The Secret Garden, Tales from Watership Down
7. With whom were your most valuable relationships?
My parents, my classmates who are my friends, My nephew, Alistair.
8. What was your biggest personal change from January to December of this past year?
I stopped being afraid to seek out help and went to see a therapist who told me truths that no one else would.
9. In what way(s) did you grow emotionally?
Emotionally became more stable apart from one mental break down. Sadly have became more numb and accepting of things not changing when they need to. Less expressive creatively and outwardly to others.
10. In what way(s) did you grow spiritually?
Been thinking about religion a lot this year in general and wondering if it could possibly help me. But I know I probably won't ever be able to take the plunge or accept all of a belief full heartly.
11. In what way(s) did you grow physically?
My feet got more deformed since I do walk around so much and noticed the changes in my body from getting older. I'm more confident in how my body is and looks than I have ever been.
12. In what way(s) did you grow in your relationships with others?
A got a lot closer to some of my classmates this year and now I don't know what it was like before I met them. Relationships with my parents get stronger every year. People let me in a lot and show me them selves at their most vulnerable so I grow with nearly every single person I met even if it's a drunken state on a night out.
13. What was your single biggest time waster in your life this past year?
Part time job
14. What was the best way you used your time this past year?
Spending time and being ridiculous with friends and family. 
15. What was the biggest thing you learned this past year?
Doing what is best for myself or others isn't always wrong or shameful. That I need to throw myself into art again.

It's actually been such a crazy year guys I hope next year will be good too. I hope it was good for all you too if you guys do this to let me know :)
Take care
