2012 in review.

2012. What a dumpster fire of a year. Let me begin by saying that I am extremely thankful for all I have in my life. I am alive, semi-healthy, I have a job I love, a roof over my head, my sisters, mother, and brother in law are awesome, I have a very patient and understanding husband, and my dog didn't abandon me this year.
This was just the year everything went wrong. I lost my dad. I went to 9 wakes/funerals. That is way too many for my unemotional/socially retarded soul to bear.
I was blogging every month, right up until the day before my daddy passed. Then it just seemed that this was so very unimportant, and it was all I could think about, but I didn't want to share my pain. I still don't talk about it, nor do I want to. I have plenty of fake humor/bravery to go, so until that runs out, I am fine.

So...moving on.
What did I discover this year?

Philip Phillips.
The closest thing to Dave Matthews Band I will find. And cuter. His voice is amazing. BUY THIS ALBUM, listen to songs 9 and 11. You're welcome.
World From the Side of the Moon
I don't watch American Idol, so he was a nice treat to find.

The Walking Dead.
R.I.P. Shane.
About to start the third season.

Once Upon a Time.
I love fairy tales.

I am still in season one, because I am trying to watch so many new shows and keep up with the old ones. But I <3 it!!

I still keep up with The Middle, Grey's Anatomy (end already!), Supernatural (never end!), The Big Bang Theory, and Fringe. Although I am way behind on Fringe, but DVR is my friend.

I know this show has been on for years, but I just started watching it.
I own every season now but the latest one.

I possibly giggle at Duck Dynasty when Scott is watching it.

I am addicted to Song Pop and enjoying losing at Words with Friends.

I read the Hunger Games Trilogy. Awesome.
The Maze Runner Trilogy was also amazeballs.
I am slowly catching up on the Kay Scarpetta books by Patricia Cornwell. I am only one behind now.
I completed the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy. A must read.
I am currently reading Stephen King's 11-22-63. I have been reading for 5 days, and I am only 42% finished. If I get to the end and it sucks, I will personally pee on Mr. King's front porch.

Oh!! Go buy this.
Things Go Wrong for Me. One of the funniest Tweeters and bloggers I know. Midget Man of Steel

Movie wise, I can't say I watched anything that moved my britches. The Avengers was good. I haven't been to see The Hobbit yet. I am totally going to lose my good rep in the LOTR community if they find out I am slacking. I liked that The Hunger Games mostly stuck to the book. I wasn't disappointed.

Most played songs on my iPod this year: (in no order, I am lazy)
2 Cellos- Viva la Vida
Adele- Take it All
Jeff Healey- Angel Eyes (as in 1989...)
Maroon 5- Payphone
Sleeping at Last-Turning Page
A Rocket to the Moon- Like We Used To
Eagles- Wasted Time
Matt Nathanson w/ Sugarland- Run (this was the most played)
Phillip Phillips- Wanted is Love
Train- Marry Me
Train- Drive By (don't judge me)
Ed Sheeran- Give Me Love (second most played)
Phillip Phillips- A Fools Dance
Jason Mraz- I Won't Give Up
Daughtry- September
Sister Hazel- Your Winter
2 Cellos- With or Without You
Sister Hazel- Best I'll Ever Be
Coldplay- The Scientist
2 Cellos- Use Somebody (I drive Scott crazy with this album)
Backstreet Boys- Love will Keep You Up all Night. (Is that judgement?)
