A Look Back at 2011

As the last days of 2011 wind down, I’m suddenly of a mind to look back at the year. That’s when I realize I don’t really remember much of it except for a few things that happened here and there, and most of those since Thanksgiving. In some ways, yes, this is a good thing because that means no tragedies but it also means no “Wow!” moments either. So I decided to review my goals from January 2011, to see what my plan for the year had been.

All in all, the year wasn’t a total bust, because I actually did do some of the things on my list (eat healthy, be social, etc.), although a couple were made a bit simpler. So, here’s a few of the things I accomplished this year (goal number included and I hit them all!), presented in pictorial form so that it’s much more interesting. Hopefully 2012 will be just as good, if not better!
