2011 and the importance of being idle

2011 was easily one of the best years of my life so far, if not the best, and the biggest lessons it taught me were the importance of family and the importance of being idle.

I graduated from university in the summer of 2011 (ooh fancy! sounds so much better than June 2011 right?;p) and just like every other graduate I just couldn’t wait to start a job but…

Oh! Oh! anything but the word ‘but’, this can’t be good right? 

WRONG! Despite being unemployed, 2011 was a ton of fun.

I travelled to Cambodia and saw Angkor Wat, fell in love with Japan, started learning Japanese, made some great friends, started blogging again (and I don’t plan to stop!) and burnt some bridges for the best.

All I want for 2012 is to be happy and I believe everything else will follow suit.

Have a great 2012! 

2011: bonds formed, bridges burnt, relationships strengthened, lessons learnt

2012: Bring it on!

  1. Congrats on the passage to post -college life, and best wishes for your future success! Sounds like you’ve got your priorities aligning. I’ll add another: the importance of being you.

  2. Being idle, believe it or not, is something that you have to work hard towards. It is like a discipline, if you don’t start learning it early, or have it forced upon you for whatever reason, it will be more stressful trying to figure out than the benefits it grants.

  3. Awesome, I’m glad it was one of your best years! I’ve been seeing on facebook that for a lot of my friends 2011 was not a good year, I’m glad we’re exceptions! I thought it was a great year too.

  4. I’ve always wanted to visit Cambodia! Aaaah. I wanna fall in love with Angkor Wat like you did. And be idle somewhere there.

    Good luck on the job-hunting, if you haven’t yet. All the best. 😀

    And oh yeah, 2012: Bring it on!

  5. Happy Happy New Year to you! 🙂

    Hope you used some of the embers from those burnt bridges to warm your feet for the next leg of your journey 🙂

    Thanks again for sharing my post…so happy it spoke to you!
