2012: Looking Back

2012 was a crazy year for me. I have a completely different life from January 2012. Sometimes I can’t wrap my head around how I use to live and how I thought I was content with my life. I think people call it settling. Well, I am 100x happier now and I can’t imagine my life any other way.

Hilights. Lowlights. Looking back at the year that was 2012:

–Started Project 365
–Learned the hard way about dehydration and wound up in the hospital for a day
–Found running again
–Ended a 2.5 year relationship
–Quit my job at Walmart
–Moved back in with my parents
–Started work at Independent Printing
–Ran the Cellcom Half Marathon
–Reconnected with MANY old friends
–Amazing family vacation up north
–Watched so much of the Olympics
–Met and started dating Ryan
–Got a new car!
–Went back to school/completed my first semester with a 3.77 GPA!
–Ran the Fox Cities Marathon!
–Started an Internship
–Visited a new state: Iowa!

This was a year of lots of changes and lots of accomplishments. Some changes were scary, as most changes are, but they were all necessary. I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!

Project 365: Day 174-Madison Trip

I went down to Madison on Saturday to visit my friend Tom! It was so much fun. We were able to catch up and he showed me all the exciting sights of the city.

This was the first time I’ve ever driven a really long distance by myself, so that was an adventure. My GPS decided it needed to take me through every little town in Wisconsin. But it was quite scenic.

June 23

I think this is Lake Winnebago, but don’t quote me.

June 23

Then I started going through these little towns and there were so many windmills!

June 23

More windmills

June 23

And more windmills!

We started our adventure by going to the Hilldale Mall, which has a FANTASTIC Target. I wish I would have taken a picture of that. It was awesome. We ate at the Great Dane and the food was super good. The weather was great and we ate outside.
After we ate there, we checked out the West Towne Mall and then headed downtown to State Street.

June 23

We checked out Lake Mendota

June 23

And drank our awesome smoothies from Jamba Juice

June 23

We walked up State Street and ventured up by the capitol

June 23

Bathroom break at the Overture Center

June 23

Meandered back to the lake. People watched. Many weddings were going on. And I sat in one of the BLUE CHAIRS!

After our second lake adventure, we got Gelato. Why have I not discovered this sooner?! It was amazing! I’m not sure which type of frozen dessert is my favorite now: ice cream, Gelato or frozen yogurt. More testing needs to be done πŸ˜›

It was a great day in Madison exploring the city with one of my closest friends. Nothing beats that πŸ™‚

June 23

The drive home.

Project 365: Days 171-173

Alright, here’s the deal. I did in fact take pictures on days 167-170. However, my memory card from my phone is not working. Boo. So I have no way of getting them. I’m hopefully going to go to Best Buy tomorrow to see if their Geek Squad can fix my card. Sucks, yes. But at least I can save the pictures I take to my phone’s internal memory for now.

Here are days 171-173

June 20

Back to my blonde hair!
