2010 : A Year of Epic Travel and even more Epic Friends  

It sure has been one helluva year. After looking back on all that I've done in 2010, I almost can't believe there was a point where I was bemoaning the fact that I wasn't doing enough! XD Aside from celebrating my twenty-third birthday in January (how could I ever have been afraid to turn 23? The idea of turning 24 this year is way scarier!! D:) and attending my first ballet in March with my sister, things didn't really kick off for me until April... and then things kind of just went explody from there!

AprilMayJune

ROME
indiefairy & zeitheist

This was always a trip I dreamed of making and I was so happy to get to share it with two of my very best friends <33

ASYLUM 4
zeitheist & timecake

Wherein I got to meet awesome guests, hang with awesome friends and got to kiss Jim Beaver on the cheek during one the party nights. FTW.

In June I left you all for the awesome
Matthew Grey Gubler
as I attempted to catch up on all five seasons of Criminal Minds in something ridiculous like two weeks XD the rest of the time was spent drooling over pictures of THE GUBE and reading fanfic. It was good times!
 
JulyAugustAugust
TRIBE ON TOUR

wherein erin_giles saw her Cardiff flat invaded by the me and the rest of the tribe: _stolendreams_, atraphoenix, aliensincardiff, conjunkie, galaxy_song, indiefairy, jemzamiajoulez217 & prawn658

BEST WEEKEND EVER OMG. 
This was a trip that I'm sure everyone agrees needs to be repeated again this year!
 

VANCOUVER
timecake 

There are no words for how amazing this trip was. Vancouver is just breathtakingly beautiful and I was so lucky timecake was crazy enough to want to come with me! heh. I would come back here in a heartbeat, I really would!
 

VANCON
timecake 

Vancon was certainly one of those "once in a lifetime" cons, but it was definitely the ultimate con to have attended as a Supernatural fan! I'm so glad I got to do this, and that I finally got a proper J2 sandwhich! <33
SeptemberOctoberNovember

ROADHOUSE
indiefairy, timecake & zeitheist 

Wherein Rob Benedict became my new boyfriend and I got him to try diet irn bru during his coffee lounge. FTW!

ASYLUM 5
indiefairy, timecake  & zeitheist 

Wherein Aldis Hodge pwned my heart to ridic levels. And I finally got the guts to ask for a pose during a photoshoot :D


KANE GIG & LONDON
absdax & co
_stolendreams_ & zeitheist

Seeing KANE live in London was pretty amazing, but the highlights of the trip have to be going to the zoo with zeithest and hanging out in Starbucks for 5hours with _stolendreams_ XD

DecemberDecember 
And then there was Christmas wherein I was both ill and got ridiculously spoiled with dvds. Namely, Leverage Seasons 1 & 2, White Collar Season1, Fringe Seasons 1 & 2, and Bones Season 5! FTMFW XDI also got a wee mini meet up with aliensincardiff, erin_giles, and galaxy_song a couple days after Christmas. <33
(Unfortunately we weren't able to stalk out a spot at Starbucks and instead had to make do with a Cafe Nero ;D)
 
   
 
 
So, yeah, it's been a pretty crazy year all in all and well, fingers crossed 2011 will be just as fun and adventurous as this last year was! I have a couple of conventions/things that I'd quite like to do this coming year, so be aware that I'll be trying to tempt as many of you wonderful flisters into doing these with with me as I can ;D heh

Also, MORE TRIBE MEETUPS!!! Girlies, we need to make some plans for this year, Y/Y?!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year <33

I second the More Tribe Meetups! Planning needs to be done.
Campaspe: Mood \\ (rp) nose scrunchcs_whitewolf on January 1st, 2011 10:35 pm (UTC)
For sure! I think Kiera is keen for another invasion at her place so we can totally work on her for that ;D and we should find some cons we can all attend too, I don't really want to go another whole year with just one tribe meet!

Lokiloki_dip on January 1st, 2011 10:00 pm (UTC)
Nope, you clearly did not manage to do anything this year. :)

Your year in review looked much neater and prettier than mine! *g*

Next year will be epic. I have decided, therefore it must be so. I'm up for many funtimes, particularly in the latter half of the year, but am around (I may have scored a ticket to Asylum in May if you're going to that? I can pop in legitimately this time!).

I've got a list of things to get done in 2011, but if you have any ideas and want company? Let me know!
Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Castiel; ducktapecs_whitewolf on January 1st, 2011 10:40 pm (UTC)
Haha, just wait till you see what I'm planning to do in 2011 ;D ...when I get my own list sorted please do feel free to join me :D I'm always looking for friends to con into coming with me join me on my adventures :D

lol. Posting pictures distracts from the fact I'm too tired to word vomit all over the place!

omg you lucky thing! I was too late to grab an A6 ticket, but I'm in the market for one if you hear of anyone selling any! I'm probably going to try for A7 in October though.

It's official - my life is dull. I barely leave my house. I might as well become a professional hermit of something.

BTW - did you see this - http://yfrog.com/h815j I'm not jealous. Nope. Not one bit.

*glom*

I can't believe how many times I'm mentioned in this post - you must be so sick of me XD (Although if you're not, it goes without saying that I'm always up for shenanigans! I've got nothing planned for this year, it's really quite sad.)

This is going to turn into a gushy comment, so I will simply say: Rome was great; our con weekends were great; going to the zoo with you was great; you were great. Thank you for being my friend, and for being one of the best parts of 2010. ♥
Campaspe: Original \\ ilucs_whitewolf on January 2nd, 2011 12:08 am (UTC)
pffffffft! Like I could ever get sick of you! ::squish::

Oh I'm certainly glad to hear that! You know I'm always good for getting you to do things with me :D I have a few cons I'd like to do this year but have most of the year completely free so if you're still not planning to attend cons we can come up with new shiny ideas for things to do?

Awwww! Gush away my dear! I had an amazing year with you and Team Rome will always hold a special place in my heart for the sheer fact it was Rome and you two were amazing <33 and yes, the cons and THE ZOO and everything inbetween made for a pretty epic year. I thank you too for being my friend and putting up with me all year. I hope to have many more adventures with you this year :)

God you had one busy year lol.

Cardiff is one of my best memories for 2010, such a amazing weekend:)

You forgot to mention Duncan at mini meet up, you could tell he like you by the way he wouldn't stop staring at you lol.

God I'm 25 this year, thats horible.

Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Reid; >:|cs_whitewolf on January 2nd, 2011 12:22 am (UTC)
omg I know! I didn't realise until I started compiling this post XD

the Tribe weekend is definitely in my top three for best thing to have happened this year <33 we have a truly amazing bunch of friends!

OMG! I'm trying to block that from my memory! I SHUDDER IN FEAR JUST THINKING ABOUT THOSE EYES AND THE STARING AND OMG NOOOOOOO....!!!!!

I'm feeling better about turning 24 already! :P
Lokiloki_dip on January 2nd, 2011 12:51 am (UTC)
Also - delayed point. I didn't realise you were old than me. :) I'm trying to think how old I thought you were, but now I can't remember since it is RIGHT THERE. Happy Birthday for very soon anyhow!
Campaspe: Star Trek \\ Spockcs_whitewolf on January 2nd, 2011 05:45 pm (UTC)
XD you know, oddly enough I thought you were older than me too! Not that much older but, yeah, how weird! XD

Thanks! I'm on the 14th of this month. Not planning on doing anything for it though so it'll probably just pass me by!

Your year was epically filled with stuff. It sounds like it was an awesomely fun year though. I hope you get to do more things this year \o/

I need to do more fun things.
Campaspe: RPS \\ JB&Matt Rippy; closecs_whitewolf on January 2nd, 2011 05:50 pm (UTC)
heh. yeah. It seems my productivity this year was limited to travelling, but it sure made for an epic one XD I'm keeping my fingers crossed this new year will be just as action-packed, hehe.

aww! well if you ever need a con to go to... ;D

Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Dean&Castiel; necklacecs_whitewolf on January 3rd, 2011 11:00 pm (UTC)
TEAM ROME!!! <33
