Where did the year go?

Next week, we start the month of December, the last month of the year. Looking back at 2011, I’m really hoping 2012 is a little better. This year has ended up being a wash, for every good thing that happened, there was a bad thing:

+ I got a promotion at my job! And then

– 2 weeks later I got into a car accident, one I am still going to the chiropractor for.

– My purse, with about $700 worth of my stuff was stolen, but then about a month later,

+ I found out I got into FGCU, and will be continuing my education next semester at this university.

2011 will be a memorable year for me, for being the half good/half bad year. I feel 2012 can only get better, right? For starters, P and I will be moving in together in January. When I asked him if he wanted to move in together in December or January, his reason for picking January was, “Why not start the new year fresh, just me and you?”. Sounds pretty logical to me. For the 1 reader I have, you’re probably thinking, wow, 4 years and you’re just now moving in together? Here’s the thing, we started dating when he was 18 and I was 20. We’re still practically babies. Plus, I live by the words: “I’ve never heard someone say, I wish I hadn’t waited so long, but I’ve heard people say, I wish I hadn’t rushed into things.” As someone who is a child of divorce and is super realistic about the 50% divorce rate, I’m ok waiting for things to happen. If we’re meant to be together, what’s a few more years of dating?

Man, that was one heck of a tangent I went off on.

Anyway, next year has to be better. With the risk of “jinxing” it, I think I’ll stop now. But maybe if I put those positive thoughts out there, they’ll come true.
