Although 2012 was a bit of a rough year with Miss Olivia, my tuxedo cat, dying in April and nan getting diagnosed with cancer in June; 2012 had some wonderful moments. Let me share some of them with you.
In February I had a NFL party commemorating all the NFL teams since no one liked the teams playing (NY Giants and NE Patriots). I decided that it would be more fun to dress up in our favorite team's jersey and just play games and gorge ourselves with food. And guess what?! Everyone had a blast! Best party ever. :)
Also in February I participated in the Brandywine Valley Association's (BVA) Polar Plunge. Starting the tradition last year in 2011, I hope to participate again in 2013. It's so much fun and it's great to know I'm making a difference in the environment.
In 2012 I saw people graduate. Marsha and a few of my friends graduate from West Chester University and my cousin Kaitlyn graduating from high school. The WCU graduation was a bit sad; I was supposed to graduate this year, but since I switched majors I couldn't (but winter 2013!) and I was sad to see some of my friends go. Kaitlyn is enjoying her college experience, though, which makes me very happy. :)
In January I met Taylor through school and MDJ. This year our friendship has grown. :) In June we went to Spring Lake, NJ for the day; it was nice catching up and we had a blast.
On July 4th, I turned 23. I spent the day in Philadelphia with my friend Christine. Some kindly couple paid for my lunch that day, which was awesome and made me cry (tears of joy that there are still nice people in the world). The night before I went to see Collective Soul and that was amazing. I like seeing older bands live. :)
All I can say is that I had an amazing time and met some really awesome people that became the best of friends. :) It was also nice meeting Deb for the first time.
Tomorrow after I get home, I'll be posting pictures from tonight and an idea of what I want to happen in 2013. :) Happy New Year's!
