11. Try  
What 12 new things do you want to do/accomplish in 2012?
  1. Read one book a month. It may seem like a small number to you, but I'm lucky if I finish a book every three months. This is SO sad considering I used to read ALL the time. I mean you know how much I love books. Now it's more a matter of finding the time to read them!  
  2. Following from that, join a book club! In the fourth grade I was part of "Chat n' Chew" and I loved every moment of it. The group consisted of five other students and the teacher's aide and we'd take our lunches back to the classroom and sit and talk about the book we read. How great is it to not be looked at as crazy for taking such a deep liking to Sarah the quiet supporting character?
  3. Entertain! One of my friends Ashley always has little get togethers at her place and I envy her! She always provides food, drinks, conversation and a good time. I always fear that if I host something no one will come!
  4. Keep myself well-groomed regularly. I keep my hair and eyebrows done, but I pay no attention to anything else. I've never been too big on manicures, pedicures or long as everything is moisturized and trimmed that's enough for me, but I want to change that! 
  5. Grow in Christ, because I've become so complacent with my faith lately and it's horrible! I need that hunger that I used to have when I first devoted my life to the Lord. Prayer, church, missions trips....I miss all of that.
  6. Freelance, freelance and freelance some more. Working at a PR firm is great, but I really miss deadlines, uncooperative source and bylines. I've been a journalist since I was 16 and for some reason I'm nervous to freelance! It's time to get over that fear.
  7. Buenos Aires! I'm hoping to vacation there in April, and even if I'm not able to go in that month, I do want to go before the end of 2012.
  8. Become more involved with the organizations I'm apart of. Sure relaxing on the weekends is nice, but being social is even nicer!
  9. Do something completely out of character and spontaneous. Sometimes I feel like I'm in this box of what people expect me to be and I think breaking out of it would make some sort of statement.
  10. Do more active things like yoga or zumba or something! However, I would have to join a gym for that....and actually buy a pair of tennis shoes and some work out step at a time I guess, but that's definitely something I want to do!
  11. Take weekend trips somewhere whether it's by myself or with a friend. I would love to go to Sarasota or Lakeland just to explore.
  12. Scrap book all of my pictures....and I do mean ALL.
What are some of the things you want to accomplish in 2012?

P.S. I just discovered this lovely song Yellow Halo by Goldfrapp yesterday. They released the video last week and I cannot stop listening to it! Enjoy!


  1. I hear you about #12. I need to finish a scrapbook I started a few years ago.

  2. Right? I love scrap booking I just feel like I never have enough time to do it, but once I get's AMAZING.
