Haven’t updated this in quite some time. It’s that time of year again where a new year is right around the corner…2012. How the hell is it already 2012!? 2011 was quite a year for me. A lot of ups as well as a lot of downs. I danced for 46 straight hours. I had my heart broken for the first time. I backpacked Europe with 2 of my best friends. My sister transferred colleges. Oprah had her final show. I went skiing for the first time in 4 years. One of my best friends got engaged. I learned to be my single self again. I made new friends. I changed projects at my job. A lot of change. Usually I don’t do well with change. As much as I love new things and will try most things once, big changes scare the shit out of me and I never handle them that well. I have a few resolutions for the new year.

-become less attached to my cell phone. I think everyone I know is fairly attached to technology. Rightfully so since it is how we connect, communicate, and get the latest news. Sometimes though as Bruno Mars so eloquently stated “don’t feel like picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone.” I’m going to try to not have my phone attached to my hip and enjoy the tech free moments I have.

-figure out what makes me happy and turn that in to a job. I have a great job right now. But I know it’s not what I want to be doing for the rest of my life. I have thought about social work, counseling, physical therapy, international relations, etc. I just don’t know what is right for me. I really want to take some classes at the local community college and see if I can find my passion.

-do what makes me happy. I’m the kind of person who worries a lot about other people. This definitely is not a bad thing but I have realized, mainly over the past year that personal happiness is what it’s all about. If you’re happy, it will spread to other people, believe it or not happiness is contagious. Even if I’m being selfish, I need to do what makes me happy.


Well now this post is post 2012. But I’m still going to post it anyway. I think its good to make New Year’s resolutions to have goals for the year. Seem like happiness is my goal for 2012…Happy New Year!
