Transitioning into 2013

I feel like I have started, deleted and restarted this post several times, struggling to find the right words to say about about ending 2012 and looking forward to what 2013 may bring.  So let's see how this turns out, because this is it.

Looking back at the past year and realized how crazy it was, but what kind of made it easier to deal with is how much I grew as a person.  I still have a ways to go, but I'd like to think that I made some great progress.
  • Took a couple trips to West Michigan by myself to just get away from everything and loved it.  It was extremely relaxing and I'm kinda wondering if the fact that I was out of cell phone range for part of it helped. (Shh...don't tell mom!)  So I'm thinking that this will be something that I plan on doing every year.
  • Met some crazy people who have become like another family who refuse to let me continue to be antisocial.  I hate them for it sometimes, but I think that's what I love about these people.
  • My grandmother's multiple hospital visits in the fall definitely threw my family for a loop and reminded me that each day is promised, but a blessing.
  • I managed to shock the hell out of people and got a tattoo.  Despite everything I have heard about people wanting more tattoos after their first one, I am about 99.9% sure that I am NOT one of those people!  But I don't regret getting it.
  • I have become a little more vocal about my own needs and have slowly, surely begun to get my point across
  • I have begun to eat a little better and cut down on how much I eat out.  Right now, I would like to make coffee, and maybe even meat, an occasional treat.  
My main goals for the coming year is to go back to school to finish my degree and look for a  new job.  Almost a month into 2013, I'm really looking forward to see what it brings.
