annwfyn: (seasonal - bonfire night)
So, it's 2011.

I saw the new year in with a lovely collection of people down by the Thames watching some men in a white van blowing shit up.

There were some fireworks as well.

I've been a bit fidgety and head crazy tonight, but overall I'm glad we had our cheerful little NYE party. I am also very pleased that [livejournal.com profile] taimatsu said she felt bad eating the food I'd laid out because it was so nicely displayed. Food art for the win!

And finally, as I can, my traditional new year tarot summary of the year.

Whatever my hopes, and whatever my dreams, I think 2010 turned into this card:



I had hopes, ideas, and a load of promises from life for 2010. And it sort of all turned into strife and stress - job, bits of social life and hobby, some money angst, some family stress. Generally, less fun than it could have been, although I will say I've had some good times, I've learnt a lot and I have connected properly with some very shiny people.

And that's why I'm hoping for this:



I want 2011 to represent new momentum in my life. I don't want to stay stagnant. I want to change things, I want to sort myself out. For a start, I'm seeing a psychologist in January to find out if I'm crazy or not. I'm also looking into some other projects to move my career forward, a little more on my terms, and I really want to take more opportunities and actually shape my life into being something I want to live.

And that's why I've chosen the Chariot.

I think I can do it.

EDIT - my sleepy morning summary of the party last night can be found here, posted to buzz in the hope of extra validation and more comments.

I've done this for the last couple of years, and I'm doing it again now.

What did my year look like to me.

This is quite a short New Year's post, for I find myself non-communicative and oddly obsessed with putting up shelves*

My New Year's Eve was small, comfortable, warm and surprisingly sane for me. I'm prone to wibbles on New Year's Eve, and this year the worst that happened was I went for a wander around a graveyard with [profile] sea_cucumber, and then went home early because [profile] pierot was really rather poorly. Even then we stayed til just before 1 am! I therefore thank [personal profile] adze very very sincerely for being a fantastic host and holding a very lovely gathering.

My 2006 has, I think, been a successful year overall. I come out of it with an MPhil in European Archaeology, two healthy and rather contented cats, a new house, a college course I love, and a boyfriend I love even more. There have been ups and downs, and I've lost some people and gained others along the way, but overall I think I've done well.

I said last year that I wanted this... )

...to be my card for 2006 and I think it was. It was a year of working away, of not being glamorous, but I think of stabilising and becoming a lot happier.

For 2007? What do I hope for?

Nothing very dramatic I think. I think to keep building from what I've got. I'd like to get fitter and healthier. I'd like to do well with my conservation, maybe moving into map conservation. I'd like to get my house sorted. Lots of solid, focussed, grown up things. Maybe I won't and it'll all go to pieces, but right now I'm feeling optimistic enough to offer up this... )

...as the card with all my hopes for 2007.


*This makes sense if you've got the number of books piled against walls that I have in my house.

How did my New Year go? )

How was my 2005? )

What are my hopes for 2006? )

Of course, all this good stuff starts tomorrow. Today I'm in a slightly odd mood. I always get this mood over New Year at some point. It's a nostalgic, bittersweet mood that broods on that which I miss and that which I've lost. Ach. I shall try and not brood. I shall go for a run, feed my kittens and appreciate what I've got.

And I wish all of you a very Happy New Year.
