Friday Five – 26/12/03

1. What was your biggest accomplishment this year?

hmmm… passing my uni subjects! Sad I had to stop them in June, but with Grandma and work and everything else, it was just too much at once. Hopefully I will do ok this year coming!

2. What was your biggest disappointment?

Not a disappointment, but my saddest moment… My Grandpa Carter died a few months ago, that was definitely a low point of my year, especially with Grandma being sick so much.

3. What do you hope the new year brings?

Who knows, nothing can be as bad as the last few years, I am totally optimistic that this will be the best year yet 🙂

4. Will you be making any New Year’s resolutions? If yes, what will they be?

hmmm, exercise more, losing another 10kg at least would be good. I have taken the first steps already and lost 7kg! And hmmm, get my Mum to Canada and to get my hair chopped off, as it’s now nearly to my elbows.

5. What are your plans for New Year’s Eve?

I’ll be at work, so no real plans….
