in 2012 I:
cut my hair right below my ears
allowed myself to become more open-minded
saw Conor Oberst live and cried.
saw Anthony Green four times with my best friend
had some good times rapping to Childish Gambino
had the best donut of my life.
drank too much
…way too much
realized how it felt to truly care about somebody.
realized how it felt to be deceived by somebody.
realized how it felt to truly miss somebody.
became a bitter person.
had too many close calls
worked hard in studio
found a genuine interest in architecture.
lost self control
but gained it back.
realized how special my friends are.
realized how special my family is.
(especially my sister. hi richelle. luv u.)
made some of the best friends i’ve ever known.
became a better person.
still a little bitter,
but more better than bitter.
it was a crazy roller coaster of a year,
but undoubtedly the most memorable year I’ve had.
in 2013 I hope to:
love the right people
and let them know that I love them.
work even harder
and feel proud of my work.
keep on finding new ways of expressing myself
because I feel like I've been getting better at it,
and I feel like I've become a better person because of it.
work on my portfolio
find an architecture internship
make some business cards
grow my hair out
continue reading as much as possible
get back into songwriting
maintain self control
be less gluttonous
take more pictures
capture more videos
engage in more intellectual conversation
maintain healthy relationships and friendships
lastly, I hope that I get to see The Format this year. I had the chance to see so many of my favorite bands/artists in 2012, so it would really make my life if I could see them. It has been 10 years since the Interventions and Lullabies release and I have the strongest feeling that they're going to have a reunion tour this year. IT HAS TO HAPPEN!
