the pictures throughout this post are from different events from 2012 that i either hosted or was a part of, and some of them are just random photos from special days--starting with january 1st, 2012.
a diary is appealing to me at three differing times: when it is empty; when it is being filled up; and when it is full. now even though these three times would seem to claim ALL of the diary's life, there are important differences separating the three. when the diary is empty, it is a receptacle for possibility and potential. when it is being filled up, it is a process in motion. when it is full, it is a narrative of recent history, some foreseeable and some wildly the opposite. now if you are thinking that i am about to apply this same logic to a new year, then you are right on the money! and this, ladies and gents, is the reason why new year's eve is the most important holiday of the year to me.

i have no doubts that, like last year, the kids across the street will be setting off fireworks and sparklers, and that the tenants upstairs will be blasting their version of "good music" at their respective parties, and that maybe i will even run into another person toasting the new year under the stars.

exams (and i will pass them!). i will gain time to write more, time to take more yoga, time to have more time. in other words, my life will change this year in major ways.
and that is just the stuff i know about!
