What a year it has been…as we (my family and I) get ready to ring in the new year (and by get ready I mean sit at our computers and wait until midnight) I can’t help but get nostalgic and remember the year of 2011.
So what has this year entailed? Here are my highlights of the year:
–exactly one year ago today, I sat in the living room with my mom, dad, and brother and watched the ball drop. As 2011 came upon us, there were no cheers. We sat solemn and quiet. It was the first year that I could remember where it was just the 4 of us. The year before was not great, our dog passed away, and our grandparents moved to another part of the country. We clinked our champagne glasses and wished for a better 2011.
–February 18, 2011 our hopes for a better year were shattered and my grandfather passed away after spending months in the hospital. RIP Grandpa, we miss you always!
–Amy Winehouse passed away. Another great music legend left this world. RIP.
–in better news, I got a job at the place I volunteered the year before! Things were looking up.
–my childhood ended (even though I’m 22). The last installment of the Harry Potter movie franchise came out. Excellent movie. Go see it (and my review!)
So tonight, when my family and I (the four of us again) watch the ball drop…we once again will wish for a better year. And what can we expect? Here are my awesome predictions for 2012!
–I’ll finish University and earn my BA! HURRAH!
–The world will end in December. If not end, we will be thrown into a zombie apocalypse. My crowbar is ready…
–I expect something will happen between the US and North Korea…but that’s like throwing a ball off a boat and expecting to hit water, right?
–Humanity will die a little more with the final installment of the Twilight saga (gag me now)…and yes I will eventually see it. Just not in theaters.
–I think it’s safe to say I won’t get engaged! But that’s like the whole US/North Korea thing right?
No matter what happens in 2012, I wish everyone the best in the New Year! Hoping no harm comes to anyone, hope everyone is happy and healthy, and most of all, hope everyone enjoys life and lives it up!
Happy 2012 Everyone!!
