2011 flashback. 2012 preview

I shall no longer shower my blogposts with excuses of my neglection ...because let's face it. I AM busy. With Twitter,Facebook, and Tumblr now consuming a chunk of my socialnetworking time, my blog has been dwindling into extinction :((

With that aside, we have a mere 4 days, 96 hours, 5780 minutes, 346,785 seconds and counting...until 2012! Bam. Scary isn't it? Will we really all poof out of existence? 0_o

Although I am anticipating what the new year of 2012 will have in store for me, I can't help but to reminisce on all of the dramatic changes of the year 2011. From my love life to my family and to my academic/work life... a lot has changed drastically.

Imagine what you were doing in the month of february, or who were you seeing last October...We grow so much within a certain amount of time, and given just 365 days, we have the ability to morph into a completely different character. Our traits mold according to our experiences so just picture how you will be, what you will be doing, or who you'll be with in 2012.

2011 has been quite a year, in the family sector 2010 has still been one of the most traumatic years, but this year for myself has been a turning point.

Being Laid-off: Wasn't exactly the cherry on top of a sundae as my start of the new year, but being laid off from working at Anchor Blue for two years may have been one of the best things for me. The co-workers were the ones I adored, but the minimum-wage pay (with no raises) wasn't cutting it. With the cahin of stores closing down, I motivated myself to find a better paying job. Thank-got ;p

Heartbroken: It stings, but it happens. What did it teach me? That I may be have my heart broken many, many times again...it is something that you can never predict and it may be something that you may never prevent. All you can do is cope with it. Time heals all.

New Jobs: They've all been retail, and still working retail. But new working environments means new personalities to work with, new tasks and responsibilities. the two month break of beign unable to find work was utterly exhausting. I'm an industrious person,meaning, I like to work because it brings some kind of purpose to my life.

Relationship: Never have I been in a titled relationship and the start of it was a bit frightening...but everything has began to flow now. I like him a lot. Like may be an understatement. He showers me with affection, something that I had always longed for. Spending the holidays with him made my Christmas a lot more warmer <3

What is the ruckus about a new year, anyway? Is it because we are able to refresh our stagnant states of living and set unreachable goals for ourselves?

I've always looked forward to a new year, but what I've stopped doing is creating "New-Year Resolutions" for myself. Why does one have to set goals for one's self only for the new year, why can't one set daily, weekly, or monthly goals? If certain aspects of life lack passion, adventure, beauty, or happiness, we shouldnt' have to wait 11 months to cram all of our wants into the eve of a new year.
