An ode to 2011 - part #2.
And I'm back with part 2 of 2011. Lots of changes in the second half of last year, from residency to career to personal problems to relationships. It was quite the ride. I learned, oh so much in a very short period of time. Like many, a yearly recap sort of puts into perspective how far you've come and what's next on your agenda. Right now my plans for 2012 including taking off the last few pounds I want to lose, growing my hair back out a bit, volunteering more, taking some cooking classes, shopping less and figuring out where I want my life to go next. Living in New York makes me super psyched on life but pretty much anyone who knows me knows I'm terrified of growing roots so I'm going to work on that. Maybe buy an apartment. Can't be a wild child forever.
By far the toughest month of the year. Aside from the personal stuff, I flew out to see friends in Portland for the Fourth of July (see above), got decked out in yellow as I worked on my Pilates certification and ate a lot of eggs apparently.
I adore the holidays so this year I set out to make loads of Christmas cookies. And I did. Four times - #1, #2, #3, and #4. Wrote up my reading list recap for the year, which has inspired me to try to read a book a week in 2012 (starting my second book today). And being the lucky girl that I am, I received pretty much everything on my wishlist this year (except the puppy).
