Anywho: the point is why not spend life experiencing new things instead of staying in the same rut. This year, I've focused my mind on that and I managed to try something new every month.
Take back. It started in December 2010 because I had never been to Lubbock, but the trend continued nicely. So, a look back of sorts. I don't have pictures for everything...sorry about that. I got better with carrying my camera with me (yep, I'm the one person who doesn't have a camera phone)
thrown a dinner party. Technically, it was a lunch party because it started at 3, but it was one of the first time I cooked for non-relatives.
been to Seguin.
February (warning you now, this month was real sparse like):
taught a full day in both subjects. As an intern, I got to teach English, but I student taught in both English and History.
been to the Ransom Center.
April (real sparse like as well. Was beyond tired and on schedule by then):
taken 183 to Austin instead of 35
been to Luling
been to Little Rock
been to Memphis
been to a concert in Austin (and I hit pay dirt when I finally did. EWF=awesome!)
been to an ACL taping
tried an Manske roll. It was soooooo good.
toured the Riverwalk via a boat tour (walked around to get to Alamo last time I was in San Antonio)
seen DCI's championship prelims at the movie theater
eaten at Fuzzy's Taco Shop.
eaten at Collin Street Bakery
visited Fellowship at the Woodlands
eaten at Smashburger. The veggie burger was delish, but a little spicy (I'm a wimp when it comes to adding spices to my food.)
shopped during Black Friday. (Of course, I messed it up by getting some Double A batteries, cheese and photo albums instead of whatever everyone else gets, but I got to go through the express lane :D )
been to Holiday in the Park
There was my year and it was the best year of my life so far mentally, emotionally and otherwise. I don't think adapting to this new outlook on life and having my best year yet is a coincidence. I just hope 2012 rocks just as much (if not more) as 2011 did because I had a blast.
Happy New Year's everyone! I hope your 2012 turns out to be amazing.
