Well Hello There, 2012!

Happy New Year! I can’t believe I have to start learning how to write 2012 now. I still remember being in grade school and having difficulty replacing the ’87 with an ’88. That was a long time ago.

2011 was a mixed-up year. It was filled with some incredible highs:
-Travel to India
-Graduation from business school with two masters and an intact sanity
-Summer vacation, for the last time in my life
-Finally moving into a grown-up apartment of my very own
-Starting a new amazing job, and getting a steady paycheck once more
-Running my first 5K

and some incredible lows:
-Poor health
-Feeling cut-off from my friends; realizing some people were not who I thought they were
-The day after my 29th birthday
-And some other things which I won’t detail here.

Overall the pros outweighed the cons of the past year, so I guess I can’t complain too much. I wrote some things that I didn’t like about 2011 down on slips of paper and burned them last night. Two of the slips were named ‘fear’ and ‘complacency’. Without setting any specific resolutions for this year (I don’t really like resolutions, because I think they’re made to be broken), I hope to be more conscious about not letting these two things take me over.

So far 2012 has been wonderful. I have watched movies, hung out with friends, cleaned my apartment, hung pictures, unpacked boxes, cooked, caught up on reading, and have just been happy. If the rest of this coming year can be like this, it will be a great year. There will be bumps in the road (in only 1 month I turn 30, ugggghhhhh … really not looking forward to that). But I definitely have high hopes for this coming year. Here’s to you, 2012!

  1. I liked this post Felish! Congrats on a great year. 2 masters degrees = u a genius! Here’s wishing you a great 2012.

  2. what? you lie. is your birthday really coming up so soon?

    btw, i am really shocked and disappointed that project CF was not one of the “highs” of 2011. i don’t know what to think anymore.

    • OMG How could I have forgotten Project CF???? It was DEFINITELY one of the hugest highs of 2011. Just the name alone is enough to lift my spirits whenever I think about it. BUT. It was also one of the lowest lows. I mean, remember the many many hours we wasted listening about oil rigs and learning how to Google search?

      And yes, my birthday is exactly 1 month and 1 day away. Ugh.

      • ahahahaha, oil rigs! i get so confused when i think about that lecture-babble. btw, i really hope he-who-shall-not-be-named is not one of your readers. that would be bad news bears.
        also: 30s is the best decade of a woman’s life. i am convinced. i asked around, and others agree, too.
