The year is almost up!  It's had its ups and downs.  In fact, if I'm honest, it's mostly been downs.  But in the last month things have turned around and become good again.  I am not here to remember the bad times though, so here I am with the good times of 2012.

So 2012 didn't start off too bad.

Then in April I saw Lostprophets in Wales and Birmingham (where I met a few of them).

I went to Download Festival in June.

I went to the Olympics.

I got pierced.

I started doing pole dancing.  I started boxercise classes.  Also in the last 2 months I have lost 1 stone (although have probably put it all back on in the last week).

Then there's my different hairstyles of 2012.

So there's my 2012.  I hope you all have a great 2013!!


  1. I like your blog title Maria! :) I would have loved to go to the Olympics. Where are you from originally? One day I'll make it across the sea. I am visiting from the I love my online friends Monday hop. Have a great week!

  6. My housemate goes to download ever year! I am so jealous that you got to go to the Olympics, how many days were you there? It's kind of a once in a life time opportunity I guess. I should have gone =(

    Happy New Year!

    1. Download is an awesome festival. I've only been once so far but will be returning! I went to one day of the Olympics and one day of the Paralympics. I got last minute tickets. The day before in fact.
      Happy new year!
