Happy New Year everyone! I can't believe it's already 2012! When 12am hit, I sat on the couch for a minute and really thought about the past years. I don't think I've mentioned it before, but my family and I moved from Zimbabwe to the United States in 2004. I can remember that day driving to our new home from the airport, I can remember my first day in an American school, and I can remember all the first friends I made! Thinking back, the past 15 years of my life have gone by so fast and I really wish I knew where time went.

     I hope that in 2012 I can accomplish all the goals I set for myself, and I will never ever back down. In 2012, I really want to try my hardest, but also focus on school and on the two sports I love the most. Oh, and of course blog now & again ;). In 2011, I lost friends, I gained friends, I cried, I laughed, I got to do some pretty amazing things (like write for Prep Talk) and I really started to grow up. I feel like I'm slowly inching my way into the grown up world where excuses don't fly, but where the rewards are bigger. I can't wait to see what 2012 brings to me, can't wait to try new things, and thank you all for your amazing support in 2011!♥
