Onwards and Upwards

We're now well and truly into 2011, today being January 5th. Lots of you have been posting resolutions for the year or focusing on what you'd like to do better and I've found it interesting, touching and fascinating to read them.

I'm not really into New Years Resolutions, making changes should not be limited to or caused only by a new year beginning and there are some many things I'd like to do better I'd be ashamed to publish them all, but I do have some very important aims for 2011 that I'd like to share.

My biggie is Graduation. I'm in my fourth and final year of a BA Hons triple major in French, German and Spanish. It's been a roller coaster ride over the last 3 and a bit years. I've lived in 7 flats, with 43 flatmates across 4 countries. I've attended 3 foreign universities. I've tried all sorts of things I might never have done otherwise, and experienced several whole new worlds I'd never have had access to.
All in all, it's been a good experience but I'm looking forward to moving on and starting work. I've always worked around school and my studies and I find studying quite self-indulgent. I'm looking forward to using what I've learned and hopefully learning more in an environment that can contribute in some way.

My other biggie ties naturally in with graduation. I'm currently pursuing a couple of things on the career front and so far the feedback I'm getting from both potential employers and from colleagues has been good so I'm hopeful and enthused for moving forward this year.

In 2011 I hope Fashion Junkie can continue along the same trends as 2010. I've seen a steady rise in the lovely comments received and I've been lucky to connect with some of you more personally via Twitter. Thank you for all the support whether you've visited, commented, followed or connected. I hope you'll stick around to see what I can do in the coming 12 months.
I've got a couple of features in mind- Junkie Lust received a warm welcome in December so we'll see how it goes into this year and stay tuned for a week long special coming VERY soon- more info to follow...

To everybody, I wish you all the very best for all of your hopes and plans this year. Here we go 2011.

Oh wow, I had no idea you were so talented with languages! That degree sounds challenging in more ways than one - I can't imagine having to go through so many different flats and flatmates.

Wishing you all the best for 2011 :)
