I know, I know. You’re all probably sick of the 2011 recaps at this point…but I reeeeally wanted to do one! It’s been a WHOLE year. I gotta look back and think about what’s gone on this year!
I sometimes forget everything that can be accomplished in a year, so its kind of fun to go through old posts and remind yourself!
Let’s see…where to start?
[excuse the weird formatting in a lot of these old posts…the blog has come along way in a year ]
Lots and lots of baking to start off the new year! Two big discussions went on: whether or not you all share your blogs with family and friends and how to get “in touch” with your food. Plus a trip to my favorite restaurant!
A packed month for the blog!
Created my 101 in 1001 list (speaking of which, I have to update that!). Wrote my first Good with the Bad post (a series that has become a fun reoccurrence on the blog!). Recorded my first VLOG! Confessed that I have Biophilia and discussed the negative effects of pressure. Plus I took the SAT for the first time! And not to mention, held my first recipe roundup contest!
Came back from an injury and banged out my first run! Dealt with my first dose of blog negativity. Celebrated Earth day! Participated in my FIRST WIAW…I can’t believe its been going on so long!!! Recorded my Second vlog. Celebrated my one year blogging anniversary
Shared my 7 links! Rescued a baby bird. Attended a seminar lead by Brendan Brazier. Talked about my thoughts on mindfulness. Went on some college visits in Boston and got stuck on the subway for THREE hours! HAD MY FIRST KABOCHA (obsession began right there!). Took a break from exercise.
Volunteered at a local art festival. Investigated the truth behind food allergies. Talked about dealing with negativity in the blog world. Launched my positive magazine cover contest! Passed my road test!!!
Laid out some goals for the Fall. Went apple picking. Compared P90x to Insanity. Filmed a short historical film for a friend! Revealed all the awesome magazine covers you all submitted! Started my senior year!!
Saw a car blow up! Injuries occurred. Got accepted to my first college and became a FitFluential ambassador! Got deferred from my dream school. Shared some traditional family recipes. Experienced my first dose of Senioritis. Was reunited with my camera! Had an amazing Christmas.
WOW. It has certainly been a packed year. And all that is only the bigger events!
I loved looking back and going through old posts! So much stuff I forgot!! Not to mention tons of recipes I have to revisit!! Gotta get on that!
What was the most memorable event of 2011 for you?
Describe 2011 in one word.
For me it was…unpredictable (in good and bad ways).
What’s one thing you’re looking forward to in the new year?
Here’s to a fresh start in 2012 and more memories to come!
