December 12 in 2012 Recap
Between the end of the semester and traveling the final month of the year was a hectic one. Four items remained somewhat incomplete at the start of the month, and two of them did not get completed fully this year (Ski 30 days and Go on 12 Hikes). However, I am happy that I accomplished nearly everything I initially set out to do (particularly run my first marathon and visit two national parks I had not yet been to)! Here is what happened over the past month:
#4 – Ski 30 Days: Coming off of a poor ski season at the start of the year getting to 30 days became impossible since I had only skied 13 days at the start of December. Luckily there was ample snowfall in New Hampshire this past week and I was able to get in 6 days while back in New England visiting my family for Christmas. I worked as a ski instructor every winter in high school and over the Dec/Jan break in college at a small mountain in NH, so it is always nice to go back and ski the trails I know so well! :-) While I am disappointed I wasn’t able to hit the 30 day mark, I am happy with the days I was able to get in given how busy this past year was.
#9 – Cut My Peanut Butter Intake Down to 2 Jars a Month: For the 12th month in a row, I stuck to this one, checking it off for the year! Doing so has (hopefully) broken me of the 4 jars a month habit for good.
#10 – Make a list of all of my commitments, obligations, etc and the prioritize them and remove some: This item will be an ongoing struggle for me. 2013 will be busy, but hopefully manageable now that I have (mainly) learned how to think logically before agreeing to take on a new task! I’m considering it completed for this year!
Overall this past year was wonderful – definitely on of my favorites. Some of the highlights include:
Visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park with my Mom
Running My First Marathon
Visiting Shenandoah National Park
All while working towards “Bucket List Item # 1” – Get my PhD!
While I enjoyed having these 12 “goals” over the past year, I am currently undecided if I want to do a similar “13 in 2013” list. I will keep you updated!
What are the highlights of 2012 for you? Are you setting goals or making resolutions for 2013?
