This year I set a goal for myself to get out and do the things I felt like I missed by focusing on work too much. I wanted to get out and meet bands, listen to great music, meet new people and most importantly, get off my ass. While I feel like this past year has been one of the most difficult professionally, it has been the most inspiring personally. I have spent more money then I should have, for the first time in my life not paid off a credit card bill in full, pushed the limits when it came to rest, wasted plenty of time sitting outside of concert venues, it was all worth it.
It has finally come to that part of the year again where I take a step back and reflect on what I accomplished and where I’ve been over the last year. The last few years seem to have flown by me in the blink of an eye. I feel like I have been on full tilt since I started working in DC. My time seems to be limited and there are some times I feel a little distant from my friends. It doesn’t help that they are scattered all over the world.
I am going to use this post to go over what I have been up to, for those who want to catch up, and some outlook for the new year, you can call it my 2012 resolutions, but I am not. At work I take the review time that come around at the end of the fiscal year to look back at what I did and what I plan on doing in the coming year. This is sort of the same thing only, pertaining to my personal life, and maybe a little work.
