This is where I was a year ago …and here …and here . Oooof. Can’t forget this one . I went back and read all the 2012 entries. God damn!
My first few entries were about how 2012′s message should be “Maturity”. Well now that I lived it, it certainly rang true. Starting over from scratch, being 100% independent, survival tactics, trusting yourself and learning how to let people in.
I survived utter heartbreak. A car crash, dodged breast cancer, got into Grad school, found an apartment and learned how to live with 6 different roommates, loss of pets, help my mother post surgery, got my ass handed to me at TKD and rode the fence of quitting, said goodbye to my childhood home and most of my possessions, barely survived dating, took up a 2nd job, survived wedding season, ER visits.
The good stuff: went to a ton of amazing concerts, made so many new friends, tested for my black stripe and became an assistant instructor, love my roommates, did well in my first grad school course, found love again, got a new kitty – Scrappy Doo, did karaoke again (without much persuasion), watched my best friend get married, climbed a mountain, traveled a bit, found my favorite mac and cheese, finally did the Warrior Dash and just genuinely learned how cease every opportunity I could and taught myself how to be resourceful.
I can go on and on about how crazy my 2012 was, but it’s already been written.
So just enjoy these photos and stay tuned for 2013 posts coming soon.
