This is my annual end-of-the-year report in which in detail the year which passed incredibly quickly. 2012 was a fantastic year; I am calling it the year of the comeback. I have grown and learned and strengthened in ways I never thought possible. I overcame my anxieties and found a path for my life. What a fantastic year!
– I fell deeply in love with my sorority, Delta Zeta and began to settle into my major, Journalism.
– I got a twitter and began to tweet in earnest during the Academy Awards. I tweeted about the ceremony over 200 times while watching the event, making me the most annoying person to follow ever. I began prepping for my role as Welcome Week executive and making some of my best friendships at Creighton to date. There was a leap day, which I am pretty sure seemed no different from any other day. I re-discovered my passion for raisins and loved singing in my choir class.
– I met one of my favorite people on earth, Maxine. I was the Scene Editor for “The Creightonian” and decided I loved writing. March was a fantastic time for my blogging. I wrote like crazy and I was pretty darn funny. I became Creighton Famous, decided I should become actually famous and found some beliefs.
– I did a lot of travelling in 2012. I went to Minnesota and discovered the streets there are not actually paved with gold. I visited St. Louis over Easter and learned I was a giantess. I visited Mizzou! I was also fortunate enough to visit France again for a month this past summer. My mom came, I nannied and I visited a beach- where I am truly meant to be.
-I wrote some of my best work. Here is a profile piece I did on one of the coolest people I know, Jake McCoy.
-I attended two funerals, barely two months apart. These instances were the first time I really had to deal with death in my life. (You can read more about my Great Grandma Leona here.)
-I wrote my most popular post ever- salmon shorts. In the course of five hours, 1,098 people read and saw my make a fool of myself on the internet.
-I was in a play for the first time in two years. Ah, my flair for the dramatic never seems to end.
I would sincerely like to thank anyone and everyone who helped make 2012 such a fantastic year! Y’all are great.
