As the year is winding down, I am starting to reflect on the past 12 months. Here are some of my ten 'best ofs' for 2010:
Best decision: To strive towards a new career
Best purchase: Probably my PS3, or maybe my Christmas tree
Best song I heard for the first time: Paolo Nutini's "New Shoes"
Best place visited: Mt Dandenong 1920's Cottage with my favourite person in the world
Best culinary moment: Making lasagna for the first time just like my Mum makes
Best childish moment: Being caught in the supermarket doing a dance of excitement
Best stupid moment: Kicking a soccer ball in the house and breaking several items
Best book read: Hands down Anne Bishop's "Black Jewels" trilogy
Best movie: Harry Potter, because it met my expectations so well
Best discovery: It turns out there's a beautiful botanical garden around the corner from me
The year 2010 was a huge one for me. I have struggled through being promoted in only my second year of teaching, I have picked up my pen again to hone my writing skills, I have enrolled at University for some post-graduate studies, I have had various unlucky health-issues and I have changed direction with my career.

I have achieved so much in such a short space of time, and I think I need to be careful to remember that. Thank goodness I have such a beautiful, supportive boyfriend who is only ever a call away, and loving parents who accept me no matter what I do in life.
I am excited for 2011. I'm hoping to finish one of my Children's Novels, find success in my studies, and find a new job. So many changes, so little time!
