buh bye to you, 2011!

it's over! can you believe it? i remember last year's new years eve, watching the ball drop and wondering what exactly would go down in 2012. well past self, this is future self telling you that nope, not much changed! just another normal year filled with pretty normal stuff! granted, there were highlights and lowlights. there were moments for laughing and moments for wanting to punch somebody in the kidney. hard. a couple times i made really rad decisions.... and vise versa. you live! you learn! you smack yourself in the forehead and get over things.
i'm not making any resolutions this year. i'd going to do an experiment where my only resolution is to just keep living right- step out of myself and do something for somebody. eat vegetables. don't take myself to seriously. be patient.

oh, and remember my list? still going strong!
