*I had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Cleveland Ohio, two times!
The first time in January, to watch my brother's band play at the House of Blues.
The second, for a family vacation which I wrote about here.
*I had 5 different jobs in the year 2012. Each one of them has taught me something about myself. Mostly, it's taught me how strong I am, and that I can do ANYTHING. Above, my desk at my Health Insurance Job.

My other jobs were; a Cashier at a Chinese restaurant, a bartender at a bar and grill, a supervisor at a haunted house, and now, I've found a job that makes me happy; a waitress at Firehouse Bar and Grille.
*I got to experience my little sister, my best friend in the world, graduate from high school, and watch her experience being a 'grown up' for the first time.
Here's an article I wrote about that.
Above; one of her Senior Pictures I took.
*I Went to Pennsylvania on a once-in-a-lifetime amaaazing camping vacation. I met and got to know my boyfriend's friends, we went white-water rafting, hiked, and went to the Pittsburgh Zoo! It was definitely a highlight of 2012.
Here's the article I wrote about it.
*Joined the band Delusional Design as the lead singer/keyboardist. It was SUCH a blast, and such a great experience to be a part of the band. We played shows at Artistic Alley, Buzzbin, and the Carriage House. We even got to open for the band Eye Empire! Even though we are temporarily on a break, we are hoping to start back up again soon!
*On October 5th 2012, the world lost a great man. My great uncle Jack. He was my favorite relative I had. Ever since I was little, he was such a great uncle to me and my brothers and sister. He was so funny all the time, and always called us Muffin. His passing was very hard for everyone in my family; he had meant something so personal to all of us. I love him so much, and he will be greatly missed.
