Looking back, a Summary of 2010 - miracle style

Ok, it is officially sad. I haven’t blogged since January this year......I am actually quite shocked and horrified it has been so long and with 2011 just a mere two days away, here I am blogging for the year’s end!!!

I Just don’t know where to actually start........I suppose the beginning would probably be the best but thats just it, so much has truly happened.

It’s like those times in which you have one year that really nothing major really happens and then you have another year either the same or a little more hectic or just outright outrageous.

If I was asked to rate what kind of year I would have........well let’s just say there aren’t enough words to even begin to describe what a year it has been. So many changes, so many new friends and familiar faces popping up or catching up over coffee or lunch. I just hope 2011 is either going to be a little calmer if not actually on my side for once.....hopefully!!!

However thinking about it now 2010 hasn’t been all that bad. There have been a couple of changes in which I am proud to say yeah I’ve done it!!! (now now, no dirty thinking there boys and girls, lets keep it clean yeah?).

Got a promotion at work during the first half of the year, moved out of home and in with my partner (although scary as it is, it wasn’t too bad).

Written a few new fan fictions as well, which also surprised me (If you think I am seriously going to let you know my pen name, then you are dreaming a dream which shall never happen - of course the people who already know, its all good)

Had a holiday up at the Gold Coast also in the first half of the year, which actually was quite nice come to think about it. Was good and very well deserved. Also went back up to Brisbane to catch up with my dearest friends and well bug brother Steph and his partner Andrew, Actually i believe my relationship with Brett is pretty much like their, which come to think about it...........yeah that’s scary (love you Stephy and Andy and a huge thank you and hello to Ma as well!!!!).

Also had a couple of low points in the year, mainly around being admitted to Westmead Hospital yet again (seriously, I have to think about either buying fully or at least half into that place. It seems I can never escape) due to backpain issues which was fun to say the least. Only downside is when the crazy patient next door tried to do a striptease and lets just say it wasn’t a sight you would ever want to see.

Been also to Westmead since due to gastro bug I seemed to have caught but so far now, all is well (probably just jinxed myself)

Also got into the world of twitter baby yeah!!! why not follow me - it’s all good!!!!

Been on the airwaves with the lovely Emma and Johnny B who is the host of his own show, bringin’ it back on SWRFM 99.9 (shameless plug here, but also going back on Monday 3rd January 2011). It is awesome that local community radio stations are bringing awesome shows and tunes back to where it all starts really. Seeding those grassroots (ok that probably sounds wrong but eh - sue me!!)

So yeah, 2010 has been pretty hectic, but would I change it for anything in the world, hell no (well maybe the staying in Westmead for 3 weeks but yeah - hell no!!)

The only thing I am left to say is that I hope 2011 bring more change, drama, action, love, peace and harmony!!!

I hope all of you have a safe New Years celebrations and enjoy what life has to offer and bring you, because it only get’s better with time!!!

Take care and until next time, Take care yeah!!!

Looking back to the future

Well its is the New Year, 2010 and although most people are saying this is the new decade, I certainly think it is a timely reminder that it seems we are willing to celebrate things a little bit too early.

For example, the new decade really doesn't start until the beginning of 2011, or how we tend to celebrate birthdays, weddings even national public holidays early.

I sometimes wonder why we seem to want to celebrate things early. Yeah most people would say any excuse for a party and i would have to agree but i also feel in some ways we need to look at things from a bigger picture? Is it really worth it?

With that said i need to move on and digress some more as 2009 certainly was an interesting year in itself.

Yes 2009 brought happiness and sadness not only to myself but my family, friends and my partner Brett. Looking back it is amazing how much things changed but how my relationship grew with not only my partner but my family and friends as well.

I just hope 2010 doesn't start off the same for me and so far (without jinxing myself here) hasn't happened so far.

With that i have a few people i need to say thank you too for all your support over 2009 as you have been there when i have needed it the most.

Brett -
Well what to really say here? I think even writing how much I love you and thank you for being both my tower of strength and rock when i needed it the most doesn't seem enough really. 2009 certainly brought us together and i look forward to what 2010 will bring us. I love you soo much and really cannot wait to see what 2010 has in stall for us both.

Mum -
Well this is always a hard thing as not many of us thank our own mothers for all they have done. I know i don't say it enough but thank you for everything you have done for me. You have helped me through some very difficult times in 2009 and i thank you for allowing me to talk things through with you and make me see things much more clearly. I love you Mum and thank you for all you have done!

Emma -
Ms Emma what i can i say? It has been two and a half years since we both began at the WPA and it seems our friendship was just meant to be. I have enjoyed very much our late night conversations on MSN and also during drinks night or latte's down at Gloria Jeans but also just having our "discussions" during breaks both outside of the office and our little shopping adventures. I certainly hope 2010 brings you the happiness you deserve

Dean -
Well Mr Dean, this is going to be interesting because i have soo missed our little banter at the office over the past 6 months as its not the same on MSN sometimes. I think i shrine to your wonder and just round kindness should be erected out the front of the workplace. I certainly hope to catch up again soon and hope 2010 brings your the best of everything for you. I look forward to coming to any future shows you may perform in and just be inspired!

Shannon -
My youngest brother, 2009 certain was filled with highs and lows but i am finally glad to see you happy doing the one thing that really makes you feel good! I know i give you grief over working for a certain airline (which i won't mention on here :P) but if i didn't then well things wouldn't be interesting now would they? I really do hope that you find happiness as you truly deserve it. Thank you for supporting myself and Brett when we needed it!

Wade -
I really don't know what to say here? 2009 certainly has been interesting for you and i know it has also been tough but like i said for Shannon, i am finally glad to see that you have found a job you love more so than your last and i thank you for making me laugh when i needed it sometimes!

Kerri -
Well now i have to be careful here as i do sometimes have to remind myself that this is a public forum and that some of our discussions but without you during my time on hospital (and its scary i am admitting this right now lol) that you made the time seems a little bit brighter, so thank you

Julia -
Well again i have to keep this clean for the sake of the readers but while i was in hospital, your banter and laughter made the day seem brighter. I wish you all the best for the HSC this year and i know you will do very well. Thank you for everything you have done to keep my spirits high when i needed it.

My Nuke friends -
To all my Nuke friends (and your all on my FB and on the wiki) I have to say that it has been a pleasure to get to know you guys and work along side you on the wiki and support the characters and read the fine Fan Fiction. I look forward to getting to know you all a bit better and work to save the show we love the most!!!

Well this is just a small list but to everyone i have got to know and might not have mentioned, I haven't forgotten you and i thank you all for your support and hope this can continue well into the new year

With that all said, it's time for me to go, but i want to wish you all a happy and safe new year for 2010, may it bring everyone of you happiness and joy, wonder and laughter with some mystery thrown in for good measure.

Take Care and till next time!
