A Single Girl's Review of 2012, NYE and Resolutions for 2013

2012 was certainly a year of growth...On to 2013, kthnxbaiiii.

 2012 was an interesting year, to say the very least. I did heaps of maturing this year and learned a lot of lessons the hard way. I also made some of the most amazing friends, strengthened and rejuvenated my friendships with old buddies and as always, continued to have a very support family, despite some inevitable disfunction. Let's review the top 10 things that happened to me this year:

In 2012....

1.) I started this silly blog (and how glad I am to have an outlet for crazy talk). 

2.) I lost 70 pounds.

3.) I got my heart really, really broken (torn out, stomped and smashed).

4.) I moved to Phoenix and built a new life here.

5.) I visited Dubai and Hawaii for the first time.

6.) I was given the honor to be the Maid of Honor in TWO of my BFF's weddings.

7.) I lost my job (if that isn't humbling, what is?).

8.) I got an Iphone (this is a big deal as a former Blackberry enthusiast).

9.) I became financially independent (like I pay my own rent, its shocking, I know).

10.) I turned 25 (I can't believe I even made it this long with my shady behavior).

I really feel like 2012 was a year of growth for me. Your 20's are hard and they're meant for these types of life experiences, as good or as horrible as they may be. I'm petty glad 2012 is over, I'll be honest. In the words of my #1 Fan Girls, Mel and Rebs, on the phone today, "Your ex is a creepy douche and 2013 is going to be YOUR year!". And I truly believe this. 2013 is going to be challenging and I'm sure it won't be all roses, but there's nothing but up from here. I accomplished so many things in 2012 who are shaping who I am in my adult life, I can't help but be proud of myself.

So, Tiffany and I needed to kick 2012's ass and welcome 2013 in the best way we could: gorgeous, sparkly and drunken. We opted for a night at Blue Martini since its nearby and we're basically VIP's there. It was an amazing time. Tiffany got cut off at 11:40pm. We met tons of people. I got a nice midnight kiss from some guy named Mike. Tiffany and I nearly choked on the stupid appetizers coming around. We got to tip the bartender the same $20 multiple times. Everyone told us we were the prettiest ones there. I even got called Aphrodite and I felt drunk and special. We were all over the only taxi rolling by at the end of the night. That's really all I could ask for.

Heyyyyy Sexyyyyy Ladiesssss

Top 5 New Year's Resolutions for 2013...

1.) 2012 is the last year I will ever be a fat girl. I will loose 50 more pounds and tone up. I want to be more fit than I ever have in my life.

2.) Stop depending on others to dictate my happiness and let go of things I cannot control. Be in charge of my own emotions.

3.) Never let a man determine my self worth again.

4.) Stop being jealous of people who have something I do not. The grass is only greener where you water it.

5.)  Count my blessings everyday. Learn to cope when things don't go my way.

Happy New Year to all the SGIEWW Readers! Share your new years resolutions with me...I gotta know who else is getting inspired to be a better you in 2013. Remember, its OUR year.
