Update: 2012 RESOLUTIONS COMPLETED (Dec. 27, 2012)
2012 will be defined by the two challenges I have undertaken as this year’s resolutions. This blog is intended solely for the purpose of chronicling the journey that results.
The resolutions for 2012 come in 2 categories:

- Jumping Stilts
- Knit (Yarn Bomb)
- Play Drums
- Ballroom Dance
- Eat Right (Vegan)
- Social Media
- Rope (Lasso)
- Conquer Headaches
Giving Resolutions: Do 12 charitable things that don’t involve writing a check. I’m looking to inspire others and myself to be more caring and considerate by gaining a new perspective. It’s an attempt to pierce the bubble of my world.
