It’s been real, 2012

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 22,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 5 Film Festivals

What an enlightening year. I didn’t post as much as I should have because this has been such an EMOTIONAL journey for me. And I didn’t want to post too many emo things about my life. But I did jot them down in my phone as the feelings came to me.

At first I thought that 2012 was a loss but I really did accomplish a lot this year. Maybe not professionally (which hurts the most) but definitely personally.

I met: Bill HallmanClaire Sulmers and Rosetta Thurman.

I learned: to knit, to stop fearing small dogs.
I joined: a small group at church.
I had my hair styled FIVE times (more times than I ever have).
I lost: WHITNEY!!!!!!
I gained: Blue Ivy!!!!!!
I gained and lost 5lbs, at the same damn time.
I cared deeply for a man.
I had: two photo shoots, one at a cemetery and the other on cinco de mayo.
I threw up for the first time in my life from alcohol ON my 27th birthday.
I went to a horse race.
I sang: for a good cause at karaoke while sick as a dog.
I got my second tattoo.
I was listed as one of Atlanta’s top fashion and beauty bloggers.
Although all that I resolved to do this year did not get accomplished, some did. I am grateful for that. And I would list my goals for 2013 but I have things like “getting kissed at midnight on NYE” on there. I don’t need you to judge my life.
Cheers to more love, laughs, faith, hard work, transparency and more gratitude in 2013.
