Goodbye 2012

I'm tired and have to wake up in 4 hours to get to the bus station and sit on a bus for a little less than 5 hours. I'll be ringing in 2013 in Seoul with some ETAs and two friends from college who are visiting relatives on their break (Andrew Lee and Ben Park). Yet, I figured I should have one last post before the new year.

There's a lot to say and I don't have the energy to say all of it but it's been a heck of a year. From graduating college to coming to Korea, it's easy to say that time flies by when only a few months ago only seemed like yesterday. It's hard to capture that fleeting memory though, hard to place it in its correct time and place.

2012 will be a year I will always remember. It was a year of milestones for me. A year of new chapters, which require ending of previous chapters. I became newly single at the beginning of this year, after being in a relationship for a little less than 4 years. I graduated from the great University of Michigan. I went to Kenya and got a taste of entrepreneurship work. I decided to pack up my life for a year and move to South Korea to teach English. I lost two grandparents in a span of two weeks. It's been quite the year.

Now, I don't want to be cliche and make absolutely enormous new year resolutions that I won't keep. I'll try to keep it simple. Every year, I never make any resolutions or pacts to myself. I figure I should try this year.

My 2013 New Year Resolutions:
1. Pray more often.
2. Read the Bible at least for 5 minutes a day. Baby steps.
3. Write down at least 3 things I am thankful for pe r day. (I already bought a small notebook that I will carry around in my bag for this!)
4. Smile and laugh more (I know this is vague but this is the best I've got).
I'm ready for 2013. Let's hope it's also a year of many milestones. Cheers.
