Well hello there, 2012.

Yes, I'm alive. I've been holiday-ing it up these last few weeks. Hard. 

Quick little life recap: I spent 2 full weeks off work with family. This felt like an eternity. I enjoyed some time at home in Houston, and completed our annual Tour De Texas. It was fabulous. Holiday smiles were had by all. For New Years, I was back in Austin, threw a party, went to a concert and partied more. It was a full 36 hour recovery. I've had out-of-town friends visiting here and there for like the last 4 days. It's been superb, but BUSY. Also, I have a cold. Clearly, it was time for my body to fail. 

Now, on to the point of this post... I took a little blogging hiatus to collect my thoughts about 2011 and what I'm hoping to get out of 2012. This has been quite the mental task for me. It's taken all these days. Here goes.

2011 was a big chapter of change for me. To summarize: I overcame my biggest heartbreak to date (or mostly). I lived as a nomad for 2 months. I moved cities. I began working from home. I got a roommate (human and pup). I started "dating" in the adult world (which might have been the scariest thing). There were lots of highs, but honestly more lows for me in the past year.

The good news? I know what I'm made of. I know what I want. I know what I don't want. I know what I can handle. 2011 kind of chewed me up and spat me out, but really, I'm glad to know that I can keep on keepin' on. Even if it's a slow process. Excruciatingly slow process. 

2012 feels promising. Actually, I'd rather say that I'm going to make 2012 my bitch. Because I am. A full list of resolutions is to come, but I have lots of exciting new prospects (on many fronts) and cannot wait to see where they go. I want to blog more, I want to be healthier, I want to be happier and I want to do more good things with my time....and I can do all those things. And I will. 
So, consider this my final blog mourning for the shitshow of a year that was 2011. It's 2012, I live in Austin, I'm surrounded by best friends and I'm happy. 

Watch out world. I'm back.
