At the start of the year, Queensland experienced a whole lot of flooding, and Brisbane was affected. Instead of listening to official government-y type warnings of "DON'T GO OUTSIDE OR YOU WILL DROOOOWWWWWWNNNN," Gareth and I drove around and took photos of it instead. It was really weird to see the CBD underwater, and even stranger to see unusual objects such as fridges and crocodiles floating down the Brisbane river. At least if the crocodile got hungry he could open the fridge and have a mid-float snack.
There were a couple of weddings this year. In January, my boyfriend's brother got married, and he was a groomsman. Then in April, my cousin got married and I had the privilege of being bridesmaid. I really think that there is nobody kinder or more beautiful than my cousin, and I mean that in the most non-lesbian way possible (because we're cousins, remember, and incest is naughty). But don't tell her I said that.
Then in July, Gareth and I went to Canberra to stay with his dad's family for a bit. At the time Gareth didn't have a car, and since his dad was away on business he said we could borrow his until he returned. So the intention was to fly to Canberra and drive back up to Brisbane, with a stopover in Sydney to see my cousins. Unfortunately when we got to Sydney we got a call saying that Gareth's dad was coming home in a few days, so we had to drive back to Canberra to return it. Booooo. But then when we got back to Brisbane ...
We bought a car! Isn't it pretty? I just want to squeeze it. Oh and also around this time I decided that dying my hair pink would be a good idea. It wasn't. This outfit is the first one that I showed in my blog! Squeeee.
In October I did a bit of work experience at a high school, as part of my degree. This outfit is what I wore on one of those days, and the only one that has ever been in the style gallery on Chictopia. I have since realised that Chictopia is a big pile of crap anyway.
In November, I cut my hair off and dyed it brown again. Hurray! I am so glad I still have hair. Please excuse the extreme close-up in the photo above, I just wanted to show you what colour it was when it was first dyed. I promise I am not a massive wanker who walks around taking photos of her face all the time.
Also in November I got a mole removed from the side of my face, which left quite a big scar considering how tiny the mole was. It's still noticeable now, but not nearly as red and lumpy as it was a month ago. Still can't cover it with makeup though. Oh well.
Aaaand then in December I turned 23 and it was Christmas, but I have written about those events before. Yeaahhh. Recycled blog content. That's how I roll.
So I guess 2011 was pretty good. Nothing majorly crappy happened, and I suppose that's what you would want out of a year. I don't really have any major resolutions or goals for 2012, because I haven't even done most of the things I wanted to on my holiday list. Perhaps I will have to make a separate list for 2012. I like to make lists, I do.
I hope you had a good year! Like I said in my last post, thanks so much for reading my silly little blog. Have an excellent New Year's Eve and a superb 2012. Byeeeeeeee!
