Song- I love it- Hilltop Hoods ft. Sia
Runner up- Sweet Nothing-Calvin Harris and Florence Welsh
Dishonourable mention- We are never ever getting back together-Taylor Swift. I actually didn't mind this song when it first came out, but then I heard it ten times a day everyday and now I can't stand it. Especially the talking parts in the middle. (eye twitches)
Album- Drinking from the sun-Hilltop Hoods
Artist- I can't pick just one, so here is a list, in no particular order:
- Hilltop Hoods
- Florence and the machine
- The xx
- Ed Sheeran
- Of Monsters and Men
- The Wombats
I pretty much had all of those on rotation all year.
Music video- Give me love- Ed Sheeran. I love this video.
Runner up-Shredding the balloon-Hilltop Hoods
Movie- Pitch Perfect. I didn't see a lot of movies this year, there was Breaking Dawn part 2, Magic Mike, The Dark Knight Rises, none of them really thrilled me but I loved Pitch Perfect, it was funny and it had good music and good actors, I'd definitely see it again.
TV show- How I Met Your Mother, as always, is my favourite and I anticipate the new episodes every week. WHERE IS TED'S WIFE ALREADY?
Runner up- The Big Bang Theory.
Mini-series- Fry's Planet Word. (2011, but we only got it here this year). Really interesting series about language. I thought it was amazing and everyone should watch it. I also got the book but haven't read it as of yet.
I also half-loved the Gossip Girl finale. It was good to find out who Gossip Girl is (I want to rewatch the series now that I know!) but some of the details at the end I didn't really like. I've also picked up where I left off watching One Tree Hill, so I've got just over a season to go until the end.
Book- The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It's not new, but unfortunately I haven't had a chance to read many new books, my to-be-read pile is still teetering precariously on my shelf, I really need to get through it so I can get to some new stuff.
Runner up-The Hunger Games series (I'm yet to read the third book though).
Dishonourable mention-Fifty Shades of Grey. Sometimes the majority doesn't rule. For something that so many people went crazy for I just did not understand why. Badly written, over-use of ellipsis, creepy storyline, just not for me. It's not that I had a problem with the subject matter either, it was just the characters and the writing that I couldn't get past. I didn't feel the need to read the second or third books in the trilogy.
Meme- Grumpy cat. Hilarious.
Runner up-Bad Luck Brian/First World Problems
My cousin and I have been making our private jokes into memes (with http://memegenerator.net/). So much fun.
Personal best- Finally going overseas, seeing some of America and Canada, meeting some awesome people and having an amazing time, spending quality time with my wonderful cousin, meeting an amazing boy who is very sweet to me, realising how amazing my best friends are, spending time with my great family, moving across the other side of the country for a complete change of my life.
Personal worst- Ending a long-term relationship and dealing with the fallout, being rejected, having people disappoint me, being completely wrong about people and feeling like I'm in high school again (which I did not enjoy the first time), feeling completely alone, losing my job and having my car die.
So 2012 could have been a lot better but there was definitely some good things in there. Hopefully 2013 is an improvement and brings some amazing experiences.
What next? For 2013 I would love to get into a career that I want to pursue, I definitely want to travel (there are so many places I want to go I don't even know where to begin), I want to spend more time with my amazing friends and most of all just start enjoying the present and not worry about the future too much.
