looking backwards and forwards, by j

Standard

2010 was quite the year. As 2011 is upon us it’s time for me to do what I do best (or want to do best) and be self-reflective about the past 12 months.

There were a lot of good times, a few excrutiatingly horrible ones, and a handful of embarrassing moments. Let’s recap the eldest sister’s ups and downs, shall we?

Ups:

Trip to Scotland with the fam, Jessica Valenti signing all my books, quitting my super stressful job, Ke$ha, getting my new job, moving home (no rent! free food!), getting back into the scholastic swing of things, weekend at the grape and wine festival (and getting tipsy at said fest), book clubs (and sister m joining the club!), Sarah Harmer, prosecco, earthquake, Lady Gaga, the brush with Sid the Kid…

Downs:

Going to Scotland without sister m, my job for the first six months of 2010, macgruber, world cup, working a night shift on my birthday, falling down in the snow, G20, paying multiple admission fees for grad school (oh, you want several hundreds of my dollars? all for the CHANCE of getting into your school? please, take my credit card information), justin beiber, hot tub time machine, not having as much contact with some folks I miss dearly, hospitals and diagnoses, moving home, learning Jian Ghomeshi is a douche, winter olympics…

There are a ton of things that I am looking forward to this year… the ballet with the sisters, book clubs, travels to faraway places (Poland anyone?), hockey game in the box suite, summer, festivals, school, family and friends!

 All in all a good year. Hopefully 2011 brings more change, more excitement, more results and lots more ups and downs!

Cheers to 2010, you’ve been bad ass.

About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.
