The Occasional Shippment

Occasional thoughts from a young adult reveling in the messiness of life.

12 Things in 2012

It’s been over a year since my last blog post, and what a year it’s been! Changes at work left me being busier than ever and traveling more than ever, but it was all great an exciting. With 2012 in full swing, things seem like they could be getting somewhere close to normal again, so I’m hopeful that I can turn my attention back to my hobbies—playing guitar, rock climbing and photography.

As 2011 came to a close, I sat at my wonderful in-laws home in Memphis, TN and started compiling a list of things outside of work that I want to accomplish in 2012. No, these are not resolutions, as I learned a long time ago that the quickest way to make sure something wasn’t going to get done was to turn it into a New Year’s resolution. So they are exactly what the title suggests—just things that I hope to get done in 2012.

So without further ado – here they are: 12 Things in 2012

1. Get back into rock climbing.
2. Buy a constant aperture lens.
3. Start playing guitar again.
4. Learn to make edamame.
5. Launch ArtisanShipp website.
6. Renew passport.
7. Learn Italian.
8. Start charging for photography sessions
9. Make that special scarf.
10. Go to Houston.
11. Enter photography contest.
12. Go to Italy.

To keep me accountable, I’m making this list known to all who read this blog (all two of you – ha!) and to all of my Facebook friends.

Wish me luck! I hope to update this blog as I knock things off the list. With this being toward the end of the first quarter, I’ve already knocked a few off the list, so those posts will be coming shortly.
