Wow. It's hard to believe that this year is almost over already. I feel as though I should only be in September, instead of in December and thinking about the upcoming year. I was initially so eager to have this year over and done with cause there's a lot of stuff I am looking forward to in 2007, but now that the year is nearly finished, I'm quite sad it's gone so quickly.

So... another year over, another year wiser supposedly. What have I learnt, aside from the fact that I really shouldn't wish my year away like that because it only serves to make me older. What have I done that has been truly noteworthy? What have I accomplished that I am proud of?

It's been an interesting year, of that I have no doubt. There've been ups and downs and not all of them have been in bed. I've learnt that sometimes just being the person you are is enough to make someone feel special, and it matters a lot more when it's someone you care about. I've done some bad things over the year (but they were sure lots of fun!!!), and I've done some good things as well (where I haven't been caught obviously, or else they would have been bad things as well), one of which was to stay true to myself and stand up for myself in the face of work place bullying. I've accomplished furthering myself in ways I hadn't imagined I would by taking the leap and daring to change a job that was no longer satisfying me.

I've learnt that sometimes, love is enough, and other times, it kills every little bit of you to see it in action. And that no matter what happens, life is sweet when you hear the excitement of a child who is extremely pleased to see you.

I've learnt that sometimes it really is better not to try and squeeze yourself into somewhere you won't fit (especially parking spots in Northbridge) and to look outside the square to see what else is available. (Or look inside the square as Michael so kindly points out to me).

So would I do this year all over again? Probably. The good by far have outweighed the bad, especially when I get to meet Chris Issak and he calls me pretty! Yes I know he was lying, but hey, a girl's got to dream. Hey Michael, if someone I know and have just met calls me pretty, why don't you? Aside from the very obvious of you know better :) We've had a lot of fun getting to this point, haven't we guys? *nods, shakes, shakes, nods, shanods, noakes... gives up*

So my new year's resolutions, despite it not being the new year yet are as follows:

* To do a floristry course of some sort so I actually know what I am doing when I do floral work.

* To better myself spiritually before my guides really do have a cow, man!

* To thoroughly enjoy my Melbourne experience.

* Continue to do a good job on the ward if I am successful and am able to secure the job.

* To hunt down whoever it is that gets my position should I not be successful and then offer my condolences, before offering myself back up for re-employment. :)

* To not have Michael roll his eyes in my direction so much whenever he is around me... though I think this is more a Michael's new year resolution than it is mine :P

As far as new year's resolutions go, that's not bad given we haven't even started the new year. "I've got something to tell you... Dave... and you're not going to like it!" as Ted E Bare says. It's only going to get more involved and convoluted from here on in... So for those of you who are reading this, be warned! We're going to make next year bigger and better...and we won't have to organise a Christmas Karaoke party for this to happen....

I'd like to correct any misunderstanding anyone (including yourself :P) may have about you not knowing what you're doing.

Proof here. I do have more proof, but I haven't uploaded it to the gallery yet. :P

I agree with Miss Piggy... I think you do an awesome job on the flowers as it is... :) One can only better oneself.. The talent has to already exist, or it is a moot point. :)

Well, I can't speak for Chris Issak, I actually think of you as pretty. I find your face to be very pretty, and before we go into the whole awkward 'she has a pretty face' thing, after the beach trip we had a couple of years back, I'll admit I was surprised to find that I rather liked your body as well. Not something that I would never have thought from seeing you fully clothed, nor from the fact that my physical ideal tends towards slender, but overall you have a 'look' that works for me. Feel free to ask me about it next time we see each other.

And for the record, I'm not someone who bothers to reply in this way if I don't mean it, I don't see the point of giving a false impression.

*blushes*

Aw schucks. :)

You know, it's funny like that. Cause I was the exact same about you. Not having known you very well before, I wasn't too phased one way or the other, but then we went to the beach and realised you actually aren't bad at all, and could actually do it for me as well :)

I'm sure this will make for interesting conversations to come :)

*huge hugs to you and all yours* Hope all of you are well despite living in different states now.

Bablon_93 and I are going to try and make it to a Goddess worship ritual thing that happened every monday at the Sun Star and Moon Spiritual Centre in Freo. It's walking distance from Sarah's house, and donation based. We've been once, and the lady forgot her notes but we had a nice time anyway. So next time might be different...

But if you're interested, you have my email address and we'll let you know when we get organized and go again! Or if you're more into learning at this stage, the Sun Star and Moon have lots of info on people who do teaching and some do it at the shop.

That sounds fantastic! I was looking at a place in Woodlands I think it was that was advertised in the NOVA but they haven't responded to me so I have no idea what is happening with them... I think I need to make some move into learning. That was a message that came through very strongly this year from all the different people I saw... have to do something about it before they all get completely shat with me and leave me on my own! :)

So let me knwo when you guys are looking at doing something again cause I would love to come along as well! :)

A quick check shows I only have your work address, and in your post you mention a new job... can you email me some contact details?
