2012, where did you go? This year has gone by so fast, friends, hasn’t it? I can’t believe it’s time to move on already. So much has happened in a mere 12 months, 52 weeks, or however you want to measure it. Some things bad, but so much good, really. I’m just sad to see it go. So, starting now, I am going to list 12 things from 2012 that changed me in some way or another, in no particular order.

  1. I turned 16
  2. And started dating,
  3. And driving.
  4. I had my first heartbreak,
  5. And I moved, giving me
  6. My own room.
  7. We got a puppy, whom I adore with all my heart.
  8. I was called as the 2nd counselor in the Laurels class, and I have learned to love each girl for who she is- a daughter of God.
  9. Julia moved to Utah,
  10. I attended my first concerts,
  11. Made it through my 2nd year of being sugar-free,
  12. And last but not least, I took a Ken doll to my Winter Formal. 
Here’s how I look as of ten seconds ago:
And here’s to another year full of surprises! Love you all, and have a happy new year!
