I'm so excited for 2009! I have a feeling it will be a spectacular, spectacular year! I have made a few goals for this year, mostly to do with uni, journalism and with priorities, I hope that everyone has something they can achieve this year!

I'll be taking a little break while I'm down south, where I'm heading for a New Year's Eve party at a house in Mandurah, and then onto Southbound. I should be back on the 5th (that is, unless the Kooks lead singer decides to whisk me away to London after seeing me in the front row... it could happen).

I also wanted to say thank you, to everyone who's reading this, and to everyone who's taken the time to comment & read my blog over the year. It has been awesome getting to know so many people from all over the world who are doing such amazing things with their lives! It means the world to me that you like what I'm doing, so a massive THANK YOU to everyone!

I hope that you have a wonderful, magical, glittery, extravagant New Year's Eve and I'll see you in 2009!
