2012, wow. What a year! Strange, thrilling, maddening, challenging, frustrating, and elating… and all in just 366 days. I can’t say that I’m excited that 2012 is over, but I can’t say that I’m sad to see it go.
2012 will always be the year that John proposed. But it will also always be the year that he left for Afghanistan. But 2012 will also be the year that I traveled more than I have in a long time. It’s the year I spent more time with my Grandpa, the year I started writing again, the year I began a blog, the year I completed a half-marathon. It is the year I lived in two time zones and tried to function in both of them. And, perhaps, not coincidentally, I was sicker this year than I have been for a long time.
I haven’t been blogging for a whole year yet, but I thought it would be fun to take a look back on 13 posts to celebrate 2013.
As a teacher, I operate in the cycle of the school year. August 30th (or around there) always feels like the start of the new year, while January 1st always feels like more of an interlude. And since I’ve been blogging since the beginning of the 2012-13 school year, I thought it appropriate to categorize the posts with some high school terminology.
