There is a lyric from a song "What a difference a day makes" , it seems apt for me, however it is not a day which has made a difference, it's the year. It's more for me "What a difference a year make". So many things have happened for me since the start of this year. I mean at the start of this year I had been in a bit of a rut. Thankfully that seemed to sort itself out for me.

I was busy for most of the year working part of the year working in a local library as part of a Jobbridge internship. I have to say that I really truly enjoyed it so much working there. There was a little bit of disappointment as at one point I didn't think that I had gotten it, but thankfully I did and it worked out for the best. It's actually coming to an end the end of January and if I'm straight honest, I don't want it to end, the end has come around too quickly.

As well as that happening, I also had the good fortune to head to two conventions this year, one was Dublin Comic Con which was held at the start of August and the other was the Wolf's Bane convention in London. i was a little nervous going to the Dublin Con as it was my first ever convention.  Am planning on going to Dublin Comic Con again next year. Thankfully everything went well. It didn't really  feel like my first actual convention as I only went to one day of it. Wolf's Bane was my first weekend con. It was also my first fandom specific convention. It was for Teen Wolf. I really enjoyed it. So much so that I have got tickets for next years con in Birmingham for Wolf's Bane 2. Also planning on heading to MCM Comic Con Dublin as soon as the tickets go on sale in January.

In late October, I had managed to book the tickets for to see the 50th Anniversary of  Doctor Who in 3D in the cinema. Was really really looking forward to seeing it in the cinema. Was really great to see so many fans at the showing of the 50th. Am sure that it would have been the same in other cinemas that were showing Doctor Who in Ireland. The episode was absolutely brilliant. I really enjoyed it.  In December we said goodbye to one Doctor and hello to another. Matt had stepped down down and Peter Capaldi has taken over. To be honest, I am very excited to see what is going to happen in the new year with Doctor Who, eve though we have a bit of a wait until then.

Also, another great achievement for me was that I took part and won NaNoWriMo this year after a couple of years of saying to do it. I actually did it and won it. Will be taking part next year, had great fun taking part in it this year.

Anyways, that's what happened. Here's hoping that 2014 is a great one for everyone.

Happy New Year everyone.
