Since it is New Year’s eve, I suppose some sort of reflection is in order. 2012 was a big year for me. A good year. I finished my dissertation. Finished by PhD. Got my first tenure-track job. Moved to Salt Lake City. Reunited with my long lost boyfriend. I can’t complain.
Tonight that boyfriend is ringing in the new year with his family. I opted to stay home, eat chocolate chip cookies, and catch up on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills before the episodes expire from Hulu. Yes, that is my reality. I also spent the evening sorting through all of the photos I took while I was home in Oregon. I got so many good photos, and going through them made me miss my nephew all over again.
I hope that in 2013 I am able to practice yoga regularly and even find a venue to teach yoga. I hope to learn something entirely new, like training to be a doula, which is something I’ve wanted to do ever since my training in pre/postnatal yoga. I hope to take knitting lessons at this nearby yarn store. I hope to commit more deeply and grow in the relationship I have with my boyfriend.
