2011: The Drama Queen's speech

Phew, what an eventful year! From Royal nutipals to widespread riots, 2011 has seen it all. 

The bad news included the Norway shootings, (may the victims rest in peace) terrible natural disasters, phone hacking scandal, the continuing economic crisis and those riots, which were just an excuse for hoodrats to bag free tellies and trainers. The antics of certain footballers caused a scandal and the final Harry Potter film marked the end of an era. 

The royal wedding was a welcome distraction to take our mind off the bad news and the constant prices of well, everything and Pippa Middleton's bum almost stole the show from Kate's stunning McQueen dress. The ever entertaining X Factor also sparked debate with its new judges and 'Coke'cozza gate. It also spawned Britain's next biggest girlband Little Mix. Towie gained a new rival when Made in Chelsea hit our screens and the Desperate Scousewives tried to cash in on the wave of location based reality TV but didn't quite enjoy the same level of popularity. We were introduced to the likes of Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande and Johnny Robinson (ooh helllooo) and Bieber fever swept the nation. 

Sadly, more young lives were tragically lost, from those whose talent was known to the world like Amy Winehouse to those who only blessed a lucky few with their talents but were taken too soon. My thoughts are with those who were close to them. 

Personally, 2011 hasn't been the greatest year for me but I'm trying to be hopeful for the future. What I will take with me is the lovely people I met this year and the great new experiences I've had. 

So, lets raise a glass to 2012, bust those moves like Jagger, don't let the b*st*rds get you down and make sure you take time out everyday to shuffle. I'll drink to that!
