Happy new year! Finally, it is 2013. It really felt like this year would never come. 2012 wasn't the greatest year to reflect on, my life definitely took a step backwards since I had to move back home and had nearly no job for almost seven months. Although having said that I did take a short term contract as a medical secretary for the last 5 months, and while that ended just before Xmas at least I now have 'experience' since my medical imaging degree is clearly worthless thanks to a lack of training positions. It's a long story, so just believe me. However, I do accept that not everyone's life can take the straight path and I've just got to keep on going no matter how difficult it can be. I guess most of all I've learnt how to deal with things going wrong and not let it get me down, which is a valuable lesson. Having more time to think and gain experience has also taught me a little more about where my strengths lie, and that perhaps there's a reason some things have/haven't happened.

This year I plan on finding full-time work, even if it's just as a receptionist, so I can move out of home again and start working towards some adult goals like a house, car, family, holidays overseas and other adult-type things. I miss cooking for myself most of all! You can see my goals for least year here and I managed the first two. I made sure to carry a film camera with me at all times in 2012. I can see myself doing the same in 2013.

Above are some photos I took just before Xmas. It was a bit of a light experiment with my Holga, and I took my coloursplash flash with me too, which I love! You can see the whole album over my lomography account.

I better mention my instagram account again, which now has a fancy new instagram profile. It's just easiest for me to post there.

Does anyone else have goals for the coming year?
