it's a beautiful night, we're looking for something dumb to do, hey baby, I think I wanna marry you  
It's been a while. I guess the end of year post is a good place to catch up on everything. I really wish I updated this journal more frequently.

As far as the 2010 lists go, I failed spectacularly at keeping track of movies. I'm going to give it another try this year though. There are a ton of movies on my external hard-drive that I haven't watched yet.

I made it to 80 with the books. Which is good, I guess. People still look at me like I'm crazy when I say I read 80 books this year, but it's not nearly as cool as getting to 100. I'm setting the goal of 101 this year, I want to break my old record. I have at least 30 books sitting on my shelves that I haven't read yet so that should get me started. The new post is all set up and ready to go, I just need to start filling it up.

As far as real life goes I have left uni for good now. It made me miserable and really wasn't what I wanted to be doing. Walking away wasn't easy, especially after all the time and money that has gone into it, but I'm so glad that I did. It seems like quitting is the easy option, but for me going back and doing the same thing I've been doing for the last 4 years would be easy. Taking the risk of not knowing what I'll be doing is scary. Which makes me think that I have made the right decision, you're supposed to take the path less traveled, right? (Yes, I am making life altering decisions based on Robert Frost)

London is getting closer, we leave at midnight on Friday 28th. I'm still making lists of everything I'm going to need but the lists are getting smaller so I think I'm almost ready. I just need a bag for my new camera and a black blazer. (Don't ask why it's so important, I have no idea..)

Yes, I am totally going to rock some arm warmers in London ;)

Resolutions for the year ahead
+ Save, save, save
+ By some running shoes and exercise more
+ Do things that make me happy

Pretty much the same as always, with a new one tacked on the end there. 2010 was not a great year for me, I wasn't happy for the majority of it, so I'm determined that 2011 is going to be a good one :) I hope you all had a great Christmas and a happy new year!

You left uni eh? I say do what makes you happy so you've already got a jumpstart on that resolution! I did the same thing a few years ago, I just wasn't in it and I wasn't caring and I didn't want to be there so I said no thank you and never went back and I haven't regretted it yet. I plan on going back to school in a few years but I just need to breath for a little while and struggle like most 20-somethings. I also enjoy your Robert Frost usage. That always makes things better. :P

LONDON! *jealous* And also good luck on YOUR resolutions! Save, save, save is a very good one and one that I will hopefully be practicing right alongside you. :P

Yep, I feel the exact same way. I don't want to waste anymore time doing something that I don't like.

Thank-you :) I'm planning on moving at the end of the year so saving is definitely going to be important.

I always have like 10 books to read on my desk and it takes me so long to start them. Then I start to feel guilty so I try to read at least three in a month. I would feel so accomplished if I could even get near 80 books in a year haha

If leaving uni is what makes you happy and you don't regret it, then good for you. I don't think quitting is the easy option at all, if anything, it seems even harder because you have to start all over.

Seems like everyone is going to London this year! I know at least three people who are going. I'm jealous really. I hope you have a lot of fun there!
