Happy New Year 2013:

I know that this post is a little late (I was skiing over New Years and greatly needed a nap yesterday), but I still wanted to post about the new year.

2012 was a year of loving, learning, and adventure for me. It was full of new friends, new places, and new experiences. Though I wish that I could undo a few things, 2012 was a year of momentous highs with very few lows. In 2012, I traveled the world, made lots of new friends, kicked my dairy addiction, made a fool out of myself a few times, danced whenever I felt like it, embraced “why not?” as my mantra, gained a new nickname/alter ego, ran around the beach in a forever lazy with tons of people watching, mustered up the courage and will to start this blog, jumped off cliffs in Mallorca, watched futbol in Spain, drank Pilsner in Prague, jammed out in Vienna, partied in Madrid, studied the law on the other side of the Atlantic, lived in El Escorial for another month, took a train to Barcelona, went boating on Lake Erie, chilled out in Key West, let go of the past, made it through another 3 semesters of law school, cooked my heart out, wrote a lot on  wide variety of subjects, camped out a few times, finally made it out to the ski resort again, made a few mistakes, jumped into a freezing cold river, fell down and got back up, went to some awesome concerts, road tripped 18 hours straight through the night, got into trouble, hopped on a Greyhound bus on a whim, gave back a little, and, most importantly, I loved wholeheartedly.

This new year already promises to be full of even more adventures and learning experiences than the past year. In 2013, I will enter into a new chapter of my life, I will graduate from law school, become an attorney, move out of Florida and back to my home state, and, like always, I plan to cook and travel. I’m not a big believer in New Year’s resolutions, but here are some goals that I have for myself for 2013 (in no particular order):
    • Graduate from law school. 
    • Become an attorney (aka: pass the Bar Exam).
    • Get a good job.
    • Keep expanding upon and working on this blog.
    • Visit one of my best friends in Colorado.
    • Travel to at least 2 new countries.
    • Give back.
    • Go on another US road trip.
    • Embrace new opportunities while moving on from the past.
    • Don’t let the little things get to me.
    • Be happy.
    • Keep setting the world on fire. 
I hope that you all have a wonderful 2013! ❤❤❤
