Fourteen favourite moments from 2014.

Well here we are, more than half way through the first of January 2015. 2014 was definitely the year that went by way too fast. It was a year that for me, brought along a lot of indecision and confusion- but that doesn't mean it was all bad! To start the blog posts for the year I decided to make a little list of fourteen good moments that occurred during 2014- more for myself than anyone else.

1. Getting accepted into university (January 16th)
2. Starting university (March 4th)
3. Turning 18 (2nd of April)
4. Gold Coast Supanova 2014 (April 5th)
5. Short Sydney trip away to meet Benedict Cumberbatch at a Sydney Comic-con event - I wrote a post about this which you can read here (12th and 13th of April)
6. Arctic Monkeys concert! (7th of May)
7. Attended my first uni ball! (7th of June)
8. Sailor Moon Crystal started airing- this was a big moment for me okay? I also wrote a blogpost about my first impressions of SMC which you can read here. (5th of July)
9. Made the decision to put my university studies on hold until I figure out what I actually want to do (July 16th)
10. Splendour in the Grass 2014/ Byron Bay trip! Tayla wrote a post about this which you can read here. (24th-27th July)
11. Attended my second university ball (15th of August)
12. Moved house! (16th of August)
13. Met Orlando Bloom at Brisbane Comic-con- I'm still swooning! (6th of September)
14. Finally had my spinal fusion surgery for my severe scoliosis. I wrote a post all about it which you can read here. (November 4th)

Those were the few 'big' moments that stood out to me this year but I think we should always take time to appreciate the 'little' happy or memorable moments too. I consider myself a reasonably lucky individual when it comes to the support of my family and friends and I'm glad that I've had this year to appreciate my parents, my twin sister and those friends (both old and new) that have stuck with me for the past year (or more). I know a lot of you probably won't read this but I just wanted to say a good ol' thank-you- I am very grateful.

Thank you for reading, I wish you all the best for 2015!
Love from Maddie xo
