2012 in review//blog anniversary

Almost exactly one year ago, I started A Thousand Million Words with the desire to document an exciting time of my life. 2012 has lived up to my expectations-looking back, it was probably my craziest, most wonderful year yet! In 365 days I have....

won my first art award-All Scholastic Gold Key!
gotten my driver's license
explored an abandoned building
Became an Adult-18th birthday
learned about disappointment 
partied at prom
Graduated High School!
truly fostered my love for photography
dipdyed my hair
watched my best friend-almost sister- get on a plane and go home
Traveled Internationally-on my own
Spent two weeks living with a family in Germany
ate crossiants and acted touristy in Paris
said goodbye to more best friends
moved to Boston to attend Massachusetts College of Art and Design
learned how to live on my own
joined a woman's rugby team
made some amazing new friends!
endured five hour studios
experienced a swaying room on the 20th floor
ran around during a hurricane
voted in my first election
stayed up til five on finals
fell in love with the darkroom

There are so many more moments and experiences, but I'm going to leave it at that. It's been quite a rollercoaster this year, so I'd really like to take a second and thank my 80 amazing followers-it means the WORLD to me that you want to know what I'm thinking, want to see my art and have stuck around for the ride. so THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU!!!
