2012 was a good year for me.
*I moved out of my parents’ house and back to my beloved city.
*I had a rhythm dance dress made for me.
*When 2012 started, I was 3 weeks into a new job, which I really liked. And I still like it a lot, and I’m still learning a ton.
*I started knitting much more. And have made some nice things.
*I started running, and ran two 5Ks, including this one.
*I found an old cocktail book and have been making great old cocktails from it.
I did the same with some recipes from my grandmother my dad found.
*I made some crafty things, and they turned out OK.
*My dancing has improved A LOT this year, especially in the last three months.
In terms of the goals I made at the beginning of the year:
*Better physical health? Yep. I lost more weight, getting within 10 pounds of my goal. (I have gained 5 in the last month, but we won’t talk about that yet.) I was eating a lot better (until the last month, but we’ll ignore that for now.)
*Better mental health and a most positive outlook? I think so. I’ve tried to be more positive and to not go thinky. A few people have commented that they’ve noticed a difference in my attitude.
*I went to a Dance-O-Rama, I’ve not been as thinky about dance, I’ve done more creative things like baking and knitting, and I’ve continued with my blogging.
Speaking of my blog, here are some interesting stats.
*In the past year, most of my views came from the US with England, Canada (Hi DG!), and Australia (Hi KP!) next.
*The most common search term used that drives people to my blog is “mint.com vs quicken” (or some variation of that) followed by “pear chocolate cake”, and “handle of Svedka”. Money, food, and alcohol. Sense a pattern yet?
Tomorrow, I’ll tell you what my goals for 2013 are. Til then, be safe tonight!
