Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012!

As we are wrapping up what will go down as one of the most epic years in my life (thus far) and getting ready for the next epic year, I thought I’d take a few minutes to relive the highlights of 2011 and see what’s in store in the coming year of 2012.

About this time last year, I was probably sitting in this same spot (my parent’s living room) gearing up to head to Austin for what would be the most influential semester of my entire college career.

The capital after a long day of work

While in Austin, I met some amazing people, learned some interesting things, and had some great opportunities, but most importantly, I (finally!) decided on my career path.

The big Twenty Eleven was also the year of The Ring- Aggie Ring that is. For most Aggies, there are 3 important days in their lives- the day they are accepted to A&M, the day they walk the stage at graduation, and the day they get their Aggie Ring.

Receiving my Aggie Ring was a great moment, made even better by my family all being there, and my brother being the one to present my ring to me.

This year was also the year I really started photography.

My favorite picture from 2011

Although I picked up my camera last year, this has been the year I really found myself diving into it and have found a true passion in it.

2011 is also the year of social media. I have had Facebook and such for years, but this year I created this blog, started reading and following other blogs, and actively tweeting. (And who can forget- Pinterest!) Through these mediums and forums such as AgChat and Agvodate I have met some great people and made some amazing friends- and even gotten a date!

Dates that send flowers are awesome!

As great as 2011 was, Two Thousand and Twelve is going to be even greater.

It will be my turn to put on the robe and walk the stage

Hopefully I will be starting my first job

I hope my new job involves going to exotic game ranches and such like my old one did!

And who knows what else might happen. But whatever happens, its going to be great Twenty Twelve!

Happy New Year!
