It's finally 2011. Which, I don't really know why I'm so excited it's FINALLY here...not much is in store for me for the this year besides turning 21 and moving out on my own, possibly by myself. This past year was a doozy and I have learned a lot. Therefore, this blog will entail reflection and end with the plans of what I hope to achieve (a.k.a. new year resolutions).

My new years eve last year was spent by myself. I watched probably one of the most depressing movies made (Revolutionary Road) and watched the ball drop by myself. Depressing, yes. But I did chose this for myself. I was mostly drowning in self pity because my then boyfriend couldn't make it down from Portland and I was rather pissed. I had the hopes that he would maybe surprise me or something. Nothing of the sort occured. I played the role of D.D. for my mom and step-dad (which, I really don't mind doing) and they claimed that it was "THE YEAR OF THE BETH!". They weren't that intoxicated, I swear.
Anyways, I had a good idea then and assumed that that night was to symbolize what was about to happen. Eventually, my then boyrfriend of 2 1/2 years broke up that March. Depressing, yes. But that is a whole other story to unravel...
School has never really been an issue for me. My grades have stayed steady and I've kept at it with a positive attitude. I'm proud to say that I'm a Junior in college and have stayed successful in school.
 I met someone else in the year 2010...that was a rough ride and another story to unravel. Eventually, we became official in August.
My sister got married in the year 2010. SO unbelievably stressful, but a very magical and surreal moment to get to be apart of. It's obviously a memory I will never forget...
I had a lot of firsts in the year 2010...mostly bad. Everyone has them though, right? All apart of growing up.
My family had some rough times in the year 2010...but I think that's to be expected out of every year from here on out. Depressing, yes. But that's my family for you.

Alright, time for the RESOLUTIONS:
1.) Work out more and eat healthier.
2.) Make time for more studying and getting to the library. My grades have been steady, doesn't mean I can't do better.
3.) Make an effort to call and see my family, rather than just texting. Technology is just getting in the way.
4.) Make time for Bethody time. (Bethany + Cody (boyfriend) = Bethody).
5.) Have fun, but be responsible.
6.) Stop picking eyebrows. (Cross your fingers that this is the year...)

I think that's a good list, don't you?
I just want to have an awesome 21er, move out on my own own (as in with no family members), stay on top of my game and be happy...
Mostly, I want to be happy and stay that way.

Happy New Year!
