my #1s of 2012

It's the last day of 2012, so I thought I would update you with my favourite discoveries of 2012! =)

#1 Musical artist - Gaby Moreno - she sings in Spanglish and her music has a lot of different influences which gives it a very fun vibe!

#1 Song - Florence and the Machine-Shake It Out - Such great lyrics, inspires me to be stronger.

#1 Movie (Kid) Brave (with Wreck-It Ralph as a close second) I saw Brave 2 days before I left Scotland, so maybe I was a bit more reminiscent realizing how much I was going to be missing Scotland, but I still think it has a great storyline and worth seeing.

#1 Movie (Adult) - Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - Great movie and it challenges you to change some of your perspectives. Watched it on the plane, not in theaters, but it definitely made the flight more enjoyable! Also enjoyed Bill Nighy in a serious role.

#1 TV Show - I have 2 new shows I really enjoy; the first is Happy Endings. I think I started watching it because a lot of the shows I watch were taking a break so I didn't have anything new to watch, and I had heard this show was funny (which it is!) Very light-hearted, and usually leaves me in stitches! Here is one of my favourite clips!

The other show I like is Once Upon a Time. It has a lot of connections to LOST which is a series I really enjoyed, plus it has nearly every fairytale character you can think of!

#1 Book - Mindy Kaling-Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? - I have to admit I've started a few books this year and haven't finished any of them. This is the book I've gotten the furthest in, and every chapter is filled with laughs! =)

#1 Travel Destination - Tie between Stockholm, Sweden and San Sebastian, Spain (That's a lot of S's!)
Stockholm was amazing, I can't wait to go back and visit more of Scandinavia!
San Sebastian was one of my favourites too! I loved everything about it! It has beach, mountains, art, architecture and great food! Can't wait to get back there as well!!

Although I enjoy all the above, what really makes my life great are all the lovely people who I've gotten to know, I've spent time with and who have made me laugh! Hope you all have a wonderful New Year filled with happiness!

Merry Christmas!

(Or happy merry Christmas as my 4-year-old niece would say!) I hope everyone has a great day celebrating with family and friends!

I saw this picture on Pinterest today of baby moose! So cute! Quasi-Christmas related so I thought I'd share =)

New Job

So I haven't be too vocal about my new job, but I was offered a position to be the assistant curator at the Derby Museum around Thanksgiving, and I will be starting this Wednesday. I am really excited about the new job! I will still be working as a tour guide 2 days a week, but I am really excited that I have my first big girl job in the museum sector!!

I am also excited that I will be able to pay off my student loans! Hahaha =D

I'll update you on the job once I start!!
