PROMPTuesday #176: The Recap

January 3rd, 2012

I came across this 2011 recap yesterday and just dug it to kingdom come. I love the idea of cataloguing the year’s bests in one place (especially when there’s fashion involved), and decided it’d be something I’d like to do myself.

 

So for neatness sake (you know what my good friend told me yesterday? “STAY OPEN” and she’s so right. I find I’m way more linear than I’d like. And sure about how things *should* be that I miss the messiness in the cracks, where the beauty can be found), I’m giving you a few starting points for this PROMPT. But, you address it any way you want. Because I’m OPEN.

 

Favorite book of 2011.

Favorite song and/or album of 2011.

Favorite blog you discovered in 2011.

Favorite moment of 2011.

Best learning moment of 2011.

What you’re leaving behind in 2011.

Where you’re headed in 2012.

 

Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.

Favorite book of 2011:
The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Favorite song and/or album of 2011.
Neon Eyes by Saints of Valory and Stand Around by Alpha Rev are two of my favorites, but I dont know if they came out this year, was when I first heard them.

Favorite blog you discovered in 2011.
DeeperStory.com is a website rather than a blog, but has probably had more of an impact on me than any single blogger’s blog. I love the community I’ve found and couldnt single anyone out as a favorite.

Favorite moment of 2011.
Moving into my apartment

Best learning moment of 2011:
Learning I can listen to 4 straight hours of testimony against me in court and have it not kill me or make me stoop to my ex’s level.

What you’re leaving behind in 2011.
The court date and horrific pain before it

Where you’re headed in 2012:
into hope, peace, promise, and rebuilding

Favorite moment of 2011. I blogged my top 10 fave moments b/c it was a great year for me, but I’ll say pulling off BlogHer flashmob as my fave moment.

Best learning moment of 2011. It’s a tie: Learning that I should never tell a comedian his own joke back to him via the Jim Carrey Debacle and that miracles do happen via Amy’s liver transplant.

What you’re leaving behind in 2011. My Apple product curse.

Where you’re headed in 2012. To my 40’s. Holy Shit!
