2012 has certainly been an interesting year. It has been filled with adventure, good friends, and heartbreak. Through the ups and downs of this year, I have learned a lot. I’ve encountered new experiences as well as a variety of new people. Let’s take a closer look at what 2012 had to offer.
This year would not have been what it was for me without SGA. I have never felt like more a part of a community as I do when I’m involved in SGA activities. I’ve really enjoyed planning events like Moorebid and Fun Day, and the friends I’ve made through SGA have only added to my positive experience.
From getting wasted to picking up waste, I definitely enjoyed 2012. I have met a number of people at Skidmore who have shaped the past year for me. The array of interesting, intelligent, and compassionate students who I’ve gotten to know and love have had a huge impact on my life. They’ve been there for me through the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Speaking of the bad and ugly, let’s talk about some of the low points this year. 2012 certainly had it’s fair share of loss and anxiety. There were times when I felt lonely, bored, and overall dissatisfied with life. There were times when I almost got arrested (just kidding, but I did get ticketed). I encountered struggles that I never anticipated, but I strongly believe they have helped me in the long run.
To say 2012 was amusing would definitely be an understatement. I’ve truly been challenged this year in the best ways possible. Yet, I look forward to what the next year has to bring. Cheers, and happy new year!
