New Year's Tag!

So I'm feeling a bit bored as I can't update with proper posts yet as my camera needs to charge so I decided to find a tag about New Year's to do instead of just randomly waffling about my year.

1. What did you do in 2011 that you'd never done before?
Not only did I go to Paris for two weeks all by myself, I had my first summer job (films don't count) and had my theatre debut. I thoroughly enjoyed being on stage and I've finally found a hobby that I'm actually good at (without sounding vain).

A picture from our dress rehearsal!

2. What countries did you visit?
I visited the usual countries this year, although I'm not sure travelling through Belgium would count, but aside from that I visited Cologne in Germany, Paris and England. Paris was my definite highlight as it was such a fantastic experience.

3. What moments from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory?
Having a night out (that didn't go exactly to plan) in Paris. It was so much fun being with a bunch of new people in a new city and this night just stuck with me.

4. Where did most of your money go?
Funnily enough, probably on makeup! After all, this is the year I bought the Naked palette and my MAC paintpot.

5. What song will always remind you of 2011?
So many, but for the moment I would say  Slow Moving Millie's version of Please, please, please, let me get what I want as the John Lewis advert was so cute and I've listened to the song a lot lately.

6. What do you wish you'd done more of?
To be honest, probably blogging...I've really neglected my blog so far. 

7. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Spent time worrying about 'friends' and all that crap.

8. How will you be spending New Year's Eve?
 At home with my family, I don't really celebrate it much.

9. Did you fall in love in 2011?
I haven't fallen in love, but I did have a pretty massive crush on a guy that didn't work out. 

10. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
It's not so much hate, rather I've fallen out with a girl I thought I was really close with (according to her, apparantly not) and who just all of a sudden decided to spend a lot more time with other people, which was hurtful and I decided to sever ties as it's not worth wasting time on ungenuine friendships.

11. What did you want and get?
I desperately wanted to improve my languages somewhat so that I wouldn't fail this new year and with a bit of perseverance, I have improved but I still have a long road ahead of me! Aside from that, I got myself a lovely new camera so that I can get some lovely memories in high resolution .

12. What did you want and not get?
As silly as it sounds, I wanted a boyfriend, yet still the (for the time being) perfect guy eludes me!

13. What was your favorite film(s) of this year?
Naturally, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. I sobbed like a baby the four times I went to watch this! Aside from that, I really enjoyed X-Men: First Class.

14. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
On my birthday -17th-, I went to the graveyard, as has become tradition since 2007, and then had cake with my family and best friend and then went to go see Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides  with my two best friends.

my birthday cake!

15. Who was the best new person/people you met?
 Hmm...this is a bit of a hard one, but I guess it's between Steffi, who's now a classmate of mine for the next three years and a great person to sit next to in English, History, Biology and Physics (I think that's all)  and with whom I can always discuss things like blogging or memes ;) Otherwise, it would be Samiha, the resident party girl or Sophie, with whom I lived in Paris and whom I miss incredibly :(

16. Did you learn anything?
How to swear in Russian!

17. Who did you spend Valentines with?

18. Do you live in the same place you did at the beginning of the year?

19. Did you change your hair?
 Yes, I got a fringe and frequently hvoer between having it loose or pinned up.

20. Any weddings in 2011?
 Yeah, my two very close friends Kate and Will got married. It was a humble affair, very small ;) My cousin got married the day before the Royal Wedding (not intentionally) but I was unable to go.

21. Any babies in 2011?
 Don't believe so

22. So overall was it a good year?
 It had its ups and downs, I'll be honest, but I think I lived more this year, as stupid as that sound. I definitely had a few new experiences.

23. Were you naughty or nice?
 Nice, obviouuuusly.

24. What's your New Year's Resolution?
Improve my german and lose weight!

I hope you guys liked this and please feel free to do the tag and give me your links! I think I WILL tag a few people in this , so Min and Dani and Stephie have now been tagged!
