(Sorry this is so text heavy. Will see about adding photos later. Apparently I can't put them where I want if I upload on my phone?)
Happy 2013, everyone!!
I'm trying to post from my iPhone. I wonder if this will work. I once tried on my HTC Evo 4G, but that userface wasn't very good. I recently upgraded to a iPhone 5 and this seems much better ^_^
How was everyone's holiday? Does anyone still follow me? Haha. I've neglected this blog soooo much and for that I am really sorry. ごめんなさい！！
As customary, I should write about 2012 as a review. In short, had some of the best and worst times of my life.
Last New Years I spent with the bf at home. Low key, but fun. That winter brought financial and personal relationship problems up to the brim. I became very upset and depressed. I also was dieting and doing well, but it got to the point where I couldn't see the good in what I was doing. I was starving myself of happiness for the sake of a diet.
I have put on a lot of the weight I lost, and that is something I plan to work on in 2013. But I won't let a diet come in the way of enjoying my life.
In the summer, my boyfriend and I had a lot of conversations about us and where our relationship was going. We moved in together at the end of July. I know people say moving in together can ruin a relationship, but for us, it was the opposite. I think we are more close and more understanding of each other.
Since I moved, that also means I had to switch jobs. I now work as a barista at Starbucks. I love it there. It's a kind of stress that I think is good. You get all tired out and then you go home and you're free. I prefer this environment over my previous job which was all drama drama drama.
I also made some new friends and lost contact with a few others. But overall my personal relationships are moving in a positive way.
This New Year's Eve, we came to the Inner Harbor and stayed at a hotel. We went out for sushi and then saw the laser show. It was really cool! The lasers projected on the buildings!!
Then we walked to Starbucks and got lattes and walked back. I then got the most painful cramps I've ever had so we stayed inside. I was literally in tears at one point. Soo horrible.
But, they soon went away and my bf and I rang in the New Year with NBC and Times Square!
At Midnight, we did a toast for our dreams of 2013:
Get engaged, have a small civil ceremony, move to New York City, get my Real Estate Salesperson license, the bf move more into fashion photography, and enjoy life more!
That's a lot to accomplish in one year, but it all kind of works together.
Some other personal goals are definitely to work out more, to start taking better care of my health, and to visit Japan again.
And with that, Happy New Year to everyone!!
What are your New Year's resolutions? How did you spend the holiday?
