Here's to the Year: 2011

To be very truthful, 2011 was a very trying year.  Ideas have been doubted, relationships have been tested, and faith has been challenged.  While, for the most part, I have had fun and I accomplished great things, it has been a year of sorrow and stress. And so, I am not sad to see the year end and I am ready to move on.

As a farewell to 2011, here are some of the more noteworthy things that have happened in my life over the last 365 days. 

In 2011, I...

Made homemade shui jiao
Was threatened with a CNN exposé
Grew out and donated my hair to charity
Blogged every day for 2 straight months
Became a television commercial star
Wrote a poem about donuts
Discovered my mother's very sharp vision
Ate school lunch for the first time in a long time
Milked my first cow
Went cross-country skiing for the first time
Fell in love with Gus
Nearly chopped off my thumb
Bought a new car and said goodbye to the old
Won a Jane Austen giveaway
Had my first taste of Ketchup flavored potato chips
Rode a camel
Went to my last graduate class

How was your 2011?
P.S.:  I think 2012 is going to be a great year!  Aren't you excited to see what happens?? :)

How did you get your list to connect to your postings? I love your list. I totally forgot about the skiing. If it will ever snow, you are totally invited to go again.
I agree with you about the year. This was a sucky year for us as well and I hope 2012 is better.
