Well, I suppose I should probably do some sort of end-of-year wrap-up of sorts, seeing as there are only two more days left in the year. The main problem is where to begin. I was thinking I could just recap my favourite things from this year… so let’s just go with that for now.
Book: ‘The Name of the Wind’ – Patrick Rothfuss
Considering that I didn’t read that many books in 2012, there wasn’t much competition for this title. Regardless, this book was definitely a quality read. (NB: I might have chosen APF22 as my “best book of 2012” since it is so much better than the last edition, but I only counted fiction books that I read from start to end.)
Song: ‘We are Young’ – Fun. ft Janelle Monae
This was actually really hard to pick but I think with everything considered, this song deserves the spot. Very close runner ups include (but are not limited to) ‘Some Nights’ (Fun.), ‘Titanium’ (David Guetta ft Sia), ‘Lego House’ (Ed Sheeran), ‘Count on me’ (Bruno Mars) and ‘Call me maybe’ (Carly Rae Jepsen)
TV show: ‘YooHoo & Friends’ – ABC3
It’s a totally random concept, but I think it works. And I guess I should give an honourable mention to ‘Breaking Bad’ which I only started watching this year, but has turned out to be quite a good show.
Ok, can’t be bothered thinking of more things/categories. Was thinking about naming a favourite movie for 2012, but can’t really remember all the movies I’ve seen this year… ‘Looper’ was pretty good, though. And I quite liked ‘Ruby Sparks’ and ‘The perks of being a wallflower’.
In terms of highlights for this year, I definitely have to include passing my intern exams and becoming a registered pharmacist. But, surprisingly, despite it sometimes feeling a bit neglected, I don’t think my social life has suffered that much. So, I guess, all round, it’s been a pretty good year. Still, we’ll have to make 2013 even better.
