Holy Hell, It’s 2012

Song Lyric of the Day:

See I’m a young soul in this very strange world / Hoping I could learn a bit ’bout what is true and fake / But why all this hate? Try to communicate / Finding trust and love is not always easy to make

Yael Naim / “New Soul

Well, it’s a new year. The year 2012, to be exact. I’m not sure I should set new year’s resolutions for myself this year, especially after reading last year’s new year’s resolutions post and making mental note of how little I actually accomplished. So what did I accomplish? I did well at work, helped keep a roof over my family’s heads, and, most importantly, was the best mom I could be to Miss Baby herself, Coraline. I also did the best I could — as I always do — to be a good person. Which, in my case, at least, has for various reasons led to an excluded, oftentimes lonely existence. It is what is is. I am who I am. I’ve tried in the past to try to be what others expect or want me to be, and it wasn’t fair. To myself, or to them. So I’ll continue to just be myself and hope for the best. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, right? This year, I hope to find that light. I need to find that light. If not for myself, then for her. Here’s to a great year.

Miss Baby deep in thought on New Year's Day 2012.
