Today is the last day of the year (I'm the queen of the useful and surprising statements), it's time for celebratory/memorial and summary posts.
This 2011 brought me a degree, but no job (rather, it brought me discontinuous jobs and not even one of them minimally connected and worthy of that degree .. oh well), it took away something from me (and only time will tell if this was bad or good), but it brought me new things and people, it allowed me to strengthen relationships, it made me rediscover the value of friendship, of sharing, of joy for others' happiness.
The year 2011 brought me this blog (well, it didn't brought it to me, but don't be too literal) and, with it, recipes, laughter, new friends, exchange and follies (I won't forget my panettone at 1 AM as long as I live).
Until yesterday I would have said goodbye to 2011 with a nice FUCK YOU (I would have screamed that), for those things that have been taken from me, for the lost opportunities, for the dissatisfactions and the defeats. But then, with a more lucid thinking, I thought about the fact that, as a friend of mine says, the glass is always half full, maybe half full with air, but still half full .. and so I say goodbye to 2011 with a more serene SCREW YOU (were you expecting a "thank you and goodbye"?! I haven't softened to this point), asking politely (they say that good manners help) to 2012, if it can, to be at least a bit better. Thank you.
But, to say a proper goodbye to the past year, which coincides with almost 12 months of blogging, I leave you a picture and a recipe for each month (well, since I didn't have January, I chose two recipe from March .. but changing the order of the addends, the result remains the same, uh?!), leaving you some sort of illustrated calendar (if you do not like, though, next year I could make a pornographic calendar of my dog, so you'll learn your lesson!)
