A Personal Review of 2012

           Another year has gone and passed, and I could’ve sworn just yesterday it was 2012. Oh wait, it was. Time is passing me by…and I’m beginning to sound like a broken record. Anyways, I want to do a quick recap of my personal life and hobbies of the year gone by. Best read with “Auld Lang Syne” playing in the background.
Work – I’ve quit two jobs, and found two more. Have yet to start the latest one.
Cars – Sold my 1998 Ford Taurus late in the summer when I was between work. I will be closing a deal on a 2004 Honda Civic tomorrow…if all goes well.
Guitars – Added a Tacoma BM6C Thunderhawk baritone acoustic guitar to my collection. Tacoma is a now defunct luthier.
Friends – Gained one more solid friendship, a similar soul from Basel Switzerland. I have met a few new people of my age last year, but the acquaintanceship were sporadic, lasting a months, then interest fade for whatever reason. True friendship is very hard to come by. Now in the digital age, friendship has taken on a shallower form. But to me, just because you add someone to your friends list on Facebook, does not mean you are friends.
Favorite PC GameXCOM: Enemy Unknown. Despite its flaws, it is still the best game I’ve played last year. Honorable mentions: Katawa Shoujo, Mass Effect 3, and Natural Selection 2, which to be honest, I have been playing since beta build 160, that is, years ago. But the game was officially released to general public last year.
Favorite Anime – This one is a little harder to choose, but I’d have to say Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita. What an eccentric anime that was. Rare and refreshing to watch. The close second was Another.

As for my goals for this year: make (hopefully lots) more money, take a vacation to a different continent, decide on what I really want to do with my life. Even if I achieve two of the three that’s still pretty good. Only 364 days left before the year is over, I better get to it.
