My Year in Review – 2012

you are a writer

It’s the motto.

2012, what can I say about you.  It was the year I ended my first semester of college and began my second.  It was also the year of the summer during which I created this wonderful blog, my professional website, my tumblr, my twitter, yada, yada, yada, but most importantly 2012 was the year I claimed the title of writer and actually began to write.
