Looking Back at 2012

New Year's Eve might not be until tomorrow, but tomorrow I'm doing my big "Best Movies of 2012" post because I still have a few movies to burn through tonight. So tonight, instead of that blog you get a brief look back at my roller coaster 2012, and a look ahead at what I'd like out of 2013.

2012 started with me and my family still dealing with the death of my grandfather, which, you know, sucked. January wasn't all bad, though, as it also saw the celebration of two of my favorite people getting married, with me performing the ceremony. And then there was my birthday, which, you know, is always an awesome party.  But the beginning of the year saw me still unemployed and broke, a trend that sadly continued throughout the year. There was some more good in the beginning of the year, though, as my grandmother and I moved to a better apartment in a better area, an apartment above family who could help take care of her and ease the burden off me a bit, which is very, very nice. That was literally the extend of the excitement in my life through Winter and Spring.

The Summer saw me become employed again... but don't get excited. It was only a one day temp job. But money is money, and I took it happily. The start of Summer also apparently saw me lose a friend, which, all I can say about that is that people do what they want to do, and only so much of it is in your control. Aside from that inauspicious beginning, the rest of the Summer was actually a very good one. I spent those months excited and walking around with a smile on my face. I saw a lot of movies, too, which you know I really enjoyed, but even without that, it was a great Summer.

Of course, the Fall came and everything else fell like a house of cards, and with the exception of another fun wedding for another close friend, October and November sucked mightily. You know, hurricanes and the like. December, though... things seem to have started to turn around as I got a job that'll last until at least February, and prospects of it becoming permanent are there. Even if that doesn't happen, though, it let me do some things for Christmas, and it'll make sure I have a fun New Year's Eve tomorrow night and a fun birthday next month as well.

And that's 2012 in a nutshell. Brief highlights that eventually got tarnished... one or two even outright regretted as I look back... amongst some crap. Which is why I can't wait for this year to end and 2012 to begin. But what do I want out of 2013? I'm setting my sights low so as not to be disappointed: I want this job to last, I want to enjoy fun times with my friends, and I want to drink in peace. In fact, my resolution is to not do anything to jeopardize that. So, you know... no women.


  1. Happy New Year's bro! May 2013 brings us all good things! :)
