 In the spirit of being gracious for another blessed year, I'd like to share some of my favorite moments of 2012:

In February, the Speed Art Museum hosted an Impressionist exhibition. It was lovely. Leslie and I went to see a play at Actor's Theater. 

In March, I was accepted to the M.A. program at UofL and was offered a graduate teaching assistantship that would pay full tuition and a generous stipend.

On April 14, we went to see Titanic, on the 100-year anniversary of its sinking.

 In May, I went to my first Derby party, graduated magna cum laude, spent a day at Churchill Downs betting on horses, went fruit-picking, and started learning to play guitar.

 In June, I played tennis in the park and went to a family reunion.

 In July,  I got my iPhone, went to Forecastle, and visited my family for the 4th.

 In August, I started grad school and my work in the writing center.

 September marked my last visit to the Speed Art Museum, as it closed for a three-year renovation. I also started the GTA Academy with my colleague, Amy. 

 In October I attended my first Halloween party as Daria.

On New Year's Eve (today!) I got to visit with my favorite professor, Dr. Henke and one of my good friends, Leslie, whom I roomed with in London. I also got to meet Leslie's baby, Eli, for the first time! Later tonight, I'll be headed out to my first New Year's Eve party.

I met a lot of my goals from last year, which included eating more vegetarian/vegan, crossing off a few things on my bucket list, etc. I ate vegetarian for about two months over the summer but decided it wasn't ultimately for me. I still tend to eat a lot of vegetarian-oriented meals though. 

I've made so many new friends working at the writing center and starting grad school. It has been quite a whirlwind so far!

In the new year, I'd like to pay off my credit card debt and student loans. I want to read plenty of Woolf and Lawrence and try to adopt an overall more minimal existence.
