2012 was a year of lots of changes. Lots of changes. *sighs*
Some good, some bad, and some that are still waiting on the new year for news (possible IT job, woot!). Unlike 2011 and it’s 335ish Resolutions, 2012 had a less impressive list but it’s time to check things off…
…and amusingly, I didn’t manage to get any of them done!
But why don’t I mind? Because I came pretty darned close in places and a I got a whole lot more done that wasn’t on the lists than I had expected to.
