Looking back through this blog to create this post has made me realise how different and how similar I am from the girl who started writing here 5 years ago. I am pretty excited to sit down and do some drawing/journalling about that, actually. But for now, let's focus on the task at hand.
This year. 2012. What has it been for me? For a lot of people it's been about the Olympics. And about the Queen and about this, and that, and wow- isn't London great, or how rubbish is London. But for me- for a girl who lives, studies, struggles and loves in London... it's not been about London at all. It's been about family and health and art and knitting and loving our planet. It's been about learning and accepting and fighting and being a little bit cheeky and visiting my cousin's pub, and craft club every week, and old friends that have become better friends, and feeling too young. And feeling too old. In no particular order, it's also been about these things:
Exhibited some of my knitting through college.
Craft Club every week.
Spent time with Sam, and visited the boat.
New, bigger goodsie Shop!
Had quite a lot of Knitting Adventures.
Got involved with the Craftivists.
Dyed my hair & spent many afternoons at the V&A
Hung out with this silly one.
Started working at Hobzy
Learnt the Uke.
Posted some outfits.
There has been other things, too. I always find these posts difficult to write. But there it is, a year in a nutshell.
