A New Years HodgePodge

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

What better way to ring in 2013 than with a HodgePodge?

1. How did you ring in the New Year?

I was down in Mass., with an old friend,
her lawyer friends, her fiancee, and his police friends.
I was probably in the safest NYE local ever.

2. One thing you're looking forward to in 2013?

Hopefully starting my PhD.

3. Are we the same person at the New Year?

That Spielburg quote is interesting.
I think we have who we are at our core,
but I do think we change a little day by day,
because we are changed by our experiences, right?

It's like how you look at yourself yesterday,
and you get that person;
but when you look at yourself a year ago:
where you were, what you were doing, etc,
you are amazed at where you are now.

So, Spielburg, I sorta agree with you, dude.

4. What about Emerald?

I love emerald - gemstone and color.
The dark green is so rich.
I'd love to have more of it in my wardrobe and life.

5. Favorite Gemstone?

So, so, so pretty.
Mine? Peridot.
It's okay, I guess ;)

6. Favorite Book from 2012?


Fortunately for you,
I've reviewed both of them right here on the blog!
So you can see for yourself how awesome they were. 

7. New Years Advice to yourself?

Be open to experiences: new and old.

8. Random Thought

My friend, 
in real life,
since second grade,
is revamping my blog,
(she's amazing, mind you)
and oh my word
be prepared for some awesomeness!


  1. The PhD is such an interesting journey. If you ever need someone to talk to about it, just drop me a note. I have some great stuff on choosing advisers, dissertation topics and defense strategies. Wishing you and yours a very happy new year!

  2. Wonderfully ambitious. Good luck on your PHD.

  3. PhD in what? Good luck on it! That is definite dedication in obtaining one of those.

  4. Best of luck with the PhD! My daughter is going to tweak my blog a bit in this new year. I wish I possessed that skill.

    Happy 2013!
