Where Did 2012 Go?
Really it's December 1st already? Where the hell has the past year gone?! Every year keeps going by faster & faster. I feel like I've done a lot & nothing all at the same time this year...which is kind of how this month is going to go too. I don't really have anything planned for this final month of the year but I know it's going to fly. I only have 14 days left of school this month & then I fly home. I have a couple meet-ups planned with people from college & of course there's Christmas Eve & Christmas Day. ... There's New Years Eve too but I don't have plans & I'm basically the only single friend so unless I can rustle up a single friend or two I'm going to be sitting at home with my family (which isn't always bad either) ... anything is going to be better than my past 2 NYE. I rang in 2012 sick as can be. I rang in 2011 pissed off at my friend because we were supposed to have a single girls' night & she ended up inviting a guy she liked and they ended up mackin on each other & flirting most of the night. Here's a look back at my year.
