Oh so cliché for New Years Eve, but whatever.
Highlights by month:
January: got a job. Learned my new favorite saying in Spanish “Si este vibora te pica, no hay remedio en la botica.”
February: Tickets to Guatemala are booked!
March: Apparently March was pretty pathetic, because I can’t think of anything significant that happened.
April: Easter. My obsession to listening to Disney songs in Spanish begins. Veo en Ti La Luz es la mejor cancion.
May: Bought a wedding dress on eBay to take pictures in. Went to Florida. Saw 2 hammerhead sharks just swimming around—crossed seeing a shark in it’s natural habitat off my bucket list.
June: First “real” photoshoot.
July: Wore my wedding dress through the mall.
August: ….another insignificant month
September: Went to Guatemala. Passed my first CLEP exam.
October: Went to Ethiopia. (Cross seeing a wild monkey and hippo off the bucket list)
December: Grandfather goes to heaven. Christmas. 1 year anniversary of my grandmother’s death.
The “Ests” of 2012 (yes, I will be inventing some words.)
Scariest: Guatemala. Driving in a truck, at night, get out of truck so it can go up a hill. Met by 3 guys with shotguns, two of which are wearing ski masks, who then lowered their guns at us. Turns out, they were just guards, but still.
Longest: Travelling home from Ethiopia. On the way back: 24 hours total.
Popularest: blog post: I’ll Just Continue
Dumbest: Tucker: “hey look at that volcano smoking!” Me: “That’s just a hill with a cloud over it.” It was clear by the nest day that it was a volcano.
Entertainingest: Lincoln. Best movie I saw all year, of course, I’m not exactly a frequent movie go-er.
Craziest: Taking my second trips to Ethiopia and Guatemala in less than 2 months time.
Quotablest: “There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” –C.S. Lewis
I want it on one of these bracelets from BookFiend on Etsy.
Self-portaitest: I have taken more photos of myself this year than ever before. My favorite of the year:
Relatablest: …thing found on Pinterest:
Songest: Many the Miles by Sara Bareilles. Actually I think it’s a kind of old song, but you know, I just discovered it recently, and I like to be behind on these things.
TVest: Sister Wives. It’s so stupid. So pointless. But so addicting.
Memorablest: (person) Selena from Guatemala.
All in all, 2012 was a good year. Lot’s of memories created.
