If I had to describe 2011 in one word it would be cacophony. It was a great big mishmash of everything wonderful and everything icky. From the death of my grandfather, my dog and for a little while there my hope, all the way to finishing my first year of a Masters degree, getting a promotion, discovering new friends, treasuring old friends and buying my first apartment.
2011 had it all, and as I sat down to bring together my inevitable round up of the year it became very clear that it was as chaotically organised and expressed as it was lived – across no less than 5 different social media platforms.
So I present a summary of 2011 in a series of ‘Top 5s’ and occasionally ‘Top 7s’. All of which share a little something of the year that was. Here’s hoping 2012 will prove to be slightly less chaotic.
