On 2013

Oh 2013, what a year you've been. How quickly you've gone and how much you've affected me. I don't quite know how to sum you up in a few paragraphs but here goes nothing.

This year has, without a doubt, been the best year of my life. At the end of last year I wrote about how much I felt I'd grown as a person in 2012. And that was wonderful. It was the first year that I really felt like I was beginning to understand who I am. But 2013 has been kinder still. Having grown into myself more in 2012, 2013 allowed me to be myself. Apologies if I'm talking what seems to be a load of nonsense but I suppose you can't really be yourself unless you know yourself, so I've been much more confident and happy this year.

It has also brought the biggest change of my life so far. Moving house and school is a pretty big one, even if it is only about half an hour away from where I used to live. But it's also turned out to be great. And a year ago I couldn't bear the thought of that change, which in itself has taught me so much.

So 2013 consisted of: - throwing up on new year's day (not due to alcohol, I still have no idea why!) - my 16th birthday - going to the theatre 5 times (I think) - my new niece Iona being born - doing my GCSE exams - finishing my secondary school - prom - getting my GCSE results - moving house - going on holiday to Wales with my best friends - going to Yorkshire to my sister's with Harry - starting a new school and a levels - being with Harry for over a year - not having McDonald's

There are many other things that this year has consisted of, but I just wanted to scratch the surface with those. Have a brilliant New Year's Eve, and Happy New Year. I'm off to spend New Year's Eve with some friends. I'll leave you with some highlights of my 2013:
