A reflection on 2012 and looking ahead to 2013



2012 is almost done…wow, just a few more hours and a ton more wine. I’m so ready. I think I’ll walk around town with the camera tonight, if it’s not too cold, take some pictures of the drunks staggering out into the snow. What a way to ring in the New Year huh. 2012 was fun for me and full of self-discovery and adventures, conquering fears and discovering new ones. I decided to list my five biggest triumphs of 2012, as well as a list of things I plan to do in the 2013 in the hopes that listing them will mean I get to cross things off the list as the year goes on.


Top 5 triumphs of 2012

Earning my black belt in Tae Kwon Do

Having my nature photos put up on display at the library and the nature center in town

Having 2 blue ribbon jellies at the summer fair (blackberry-lemonade and cherry-limeade)

Actually completing a novel which I doubt would have happened if I hadn’t found my way here to GA

Getting my GPA back up to a 3.9 (only one more year left till I finish this course of study yey!)


To do list

Make blackberry wine from the blackberries in the garden

Spend 4 days camping out by the caves in the eastern part of my state

Go to Sturgis

Spend a week hiking and taking pictures in Colorado

Trap that pesky rabbit who lives in my garden so he doesn’t get to half the vegies this year

Get my bow hunting license, see if I do better than I did with the shotgun this year

Lose 50 pounds

Spend some serious time playing my guitar again

Christen the bonfire ring, I got it built, still haven’t lit a fire in it

Get the strawberry patch planted, and make sure the pumpkins go in on time this year

Finish all the half-finished crafts in the craft bin

Take and pass the 3ds max head class I’ve been dreading

Go canoeing for the first time in 15 years

Convert that old shed out back to a working machine shed

Finally check out all those local winerys I keep on meaning to go see

Take my oldest to monster truck racing and my youngest to the theater to see a play

Learn to make Christmas fudge without wrecking it

Finish the uncompleted writings scattered all over my room.
