The Start of 2012

Reverb is a 31 day writing exercise where daily prompts allow people to reflect on closing the year and planning the one to come. I participated in the project in 2010, looking forward to seeing it’s changed and how I’ve changed. Here goes. 

[Where it began: Review and reflect – how did 2012 begin for you? Tell us how the year kicked off; start your renewal by beginning again.]

2012 kicked off with a move across the country. I had never lived outside the state of Illinois and something inside me was ready to make a major move. I also left my first job for a new one in this new city of mine. 

The start of this year feels almost a lifetime away – I’ve moved to a new city, started a new job, made new friends and had completely new experiences in the process. And yet, I cannot believe how quickly 2013 snuck up on me. Amidst all the new I’ve tried to remain the same girl and I’m looking forward to reflecting throughout the month to come. 

How did 2012 start for you?

  2. Great to hear from you Jose! I don’t have all the original prompts and it looks like they are posted one at a time for Reverb12. Keep me posted on what you decide. Look forward to checking out your thoughts and thanks for being interested in mine.

  3. Congrats on moving to NYC and landing a job btw, even though you’ve been there awhile now you still deserve the congrats! I live not to far from the city but have somehow managed never to work there. I tell myself I want to sometimes, then I apply, then nothing happens, then I tell myself I want to run away, and I end up in this big mix of emotions like "what do I do with my life?!?" So – Congrats! You’re awesome. Hopefully when I come back from my travels I will be able to land a job in NYC as well. 🙂
