    Launched The Career pretty promisingly, graduated with a decent gpa and scored an amazing 12 month internship which I'll conclude in June next year, at which point I'll move to Taipei, open a gallery there and continue being generally amazing :D

    I feel like the only useful thing I did this year was write.

    Plans for 2012? Write more. Get this book finished.

    Ok, some of my highlights:

    Finishing my book
    Watching my close friend get married
    Making new friends and spending some good times in the company of old ones
    Learning a few important life lessons

    Simply put, 2011 was much better than 2010.


    Plans for 2012:

    New job
    Move house
    Spend (more) time with those I care for
    Work on music and other stuff
    Keep up the exercise
    Take some short trips

    I fell in love. That was pretty neat.

    As for the future, it depends on my high-school score, which gets finalised in thirteen days. Whenever I start counting, I instinctively bite my fingernails past the quick. So I can honestly say that I've lost both sleep and blood over this ridiculous waiting. Anyway, if I get enough points, I study linguistics at the University of Melbourne. If not, I study law in Tasmania.
