Reflections and a Look Ahead

It’s that day.

The day to reflect.

It’s no lie that every time I read the world reflect, I laugh. Anyone reading this who is a Bridgewater Eagle of past or present will understand this one…oh PDP reflections.

But back on topic. Reflections.

So here it goes. This year…

There was the incident. I say with great confidence that it’s been mulled over quite enough now. It’s been John 13:7ed (read John thirteen sevened—yes, I did make that up) to death. I’m quite happy to be leaving that in 2011.

We found a new normal. The reflecting Hannah would say to this—is there ever anything remotely normal about this life, though?

I had one of “those days”. I think I can laugh at myself over all of that now…

I began the process of finding my place at BC…finding my people. There is so much that I want to say about each and every one of the people that I have come to call my friends at Bridgewater. More then I can say right now while being pressed (I’ve been watching too much Downton Abbey.) to get ready for tonight’s festivities. So a post about these lovely people is coming down the pike soon. For now—they are all so very important to me. I love them all.

We made some videos. I’m a star, didn’t you know? Ha. I crack myself up. But really…we made many videos—some professional and some very unprofessional.

Miss B turned one! And in the new year, Miss B will be getting a Mr. K! Yay for baby love!

I realized that I was alive. How very, very observant of me. But really, I did. This goes back to the finding my people thing.

I finished my freshman year of college. A huge triumph and a mini-mid-year-reflection at that.

I was enchanted (at the T. Swift concert, of course). Oh T. Swift. Why must you understand me so well? And your concert? It was absolutely enchanting.

I met Virginia and danced with Jagger. It was by far one of the best concerts I have ever been to—the awesome people I was with could have had something to do with it, too.

I wrote myself a letter. I didn’t read it yet—I promise. I’m half way through sophomore year so I’m hoping I’ve at least crossed off half the things on my to do list.

We had some awesome weekends and got into some shenanigans. Oh the things we’ve done this year.

We made some forever memories. This goes back to the finding my people thing.

This too shall pass. This also goes back to the finding my people thing. Sensing a theme to my life this year.

Homecoming weekend was awesome. Some of the reasons may have had nothing to do with Homecoming.

We attended Halloween costume parties and got into some more shenanigans. Tends to be what we do these days.

I was baffled. This year I found my people. This year was also a baffling year.

Christmas came once more. And it was amazing.

Man, what a year it has been.

Full of ups and downs.

Of making and keeping some of the best life-long friends a girl could have.

It’s been another year of getting a step closer to finding that key to being me.

All-in-all it’s been pretty awesome.

And I absolutely cannot wait to see what 2012 has in store. It seems that it’s already shaping up to be one of my best years yet.

As for resolutions?

My friend Carrie and I were trying to come up with some today on Twitter.

I think there’s just one thing I’m shooting for this year.


I hope that each of you has an amazing NYE and that 2012 brings every thing that you want and then some.
