2012 New Year's Resolutions: Final Results
1. Get married. 2. Move out from my parents' house. 3. Get a 4.0.
I didn't manage to do this for the spring semester, but I ended the fall semester (my last on at SJSU) with 4 As and 2 A- s...it's technically not a 4.0, because the A- is worth slightly less (3.6 or 3.8 I think?) but I'm going to count it!
4. Graduate from SJSU.
And done! I don't plan to walk in a ceremony, but I'll take a picture with my diploma when it arrives in the mail.
5. Complete at least one internship, preferably two.
6. Create an awesome work of art.
Sadly, this didn't pan out. I made a glass bowl at Bay Area Glass Institute last week, but I still haven't picked it up so I haven't verified that it is awesome yet. That's the only art-thing I really accomplished all year. THIS MUST CHANGE NEXT YEAR.
7. Set up – and stick with – a fitness routine.
ALSO THIS. Perhaps next year I'll make a time goal instead. Start with 60 minutes of exercise a week and add more time on as my body adjusts to the effort.
8. Eliminate the backlog of “to be posted” blog entries.
All of my last semester at SJSU, I got further and further behind on these. Le sigh.
9. Eliminate my backlog of books for review.
Nope. See #8. This got progressively worse throughout November and December. I'll have to devote a decent chunk of January to getting caught up – but hopefully from there I'll stay on top of things.
10. Do one thing completely new.
Man. I don't think I did one new thing this year.
At least, not the way I intended when I wrote this resolution. I mean 'try something new' like skydiving or learn to ride a bike or give out handmade gifts for Christmas. I definitely didn't do anything like that.
However, I worked in a museum for the first time. That was useful. I got married – seven months of being a wife is definitely new! Living on my own, maintaining my own household...it's a big step. Thanks to my archaeological lab classes, I can identify all the bones in the human body, survey and record a site, and analyze artifacts in a lab setting. A year ago, I didn't have an idea how to do any of these things.
So maybe I did do something new after all.
2012 was a crazy year, but I loved it. Here's to hoping that 2013 is full of more magic and fun than all the years preceding it!
