12. Plan a trip

So far I get to cross three more items off my Twelve before 2012 list! I'm so excited! Getting to cross things off is my favorite part about list-making, because it means I actually did something.  Here's a little bit about what happened:

3. Finally win a carrom game against my mom

Carrom is a board game my mother grew up playing, and she recently bought one of the boards at a yard sale so my siblings and I can play.  I have to say, it's quite entertaining.  My mother is pretty much a pro at this game, but on Thanksgiving my boyfriend and I beat my mom and my sister in a 2 v. 2 match, and I was so excited!

8. Get a better math score on the ACT

I was able to improve my math and my science scores when I took the ACT in November.  Math went from a 25 to a 27 and science went from 29 to 30, but my English score dropped dramatically from 36 to 31, so I am retaking it again in the spring.

12. Plan a trip

Okay, so I didn't actually plan a trip for myself, but I am helping my two sisters plan the mission trips they are going on next summer.  I went on one this past summer and this is something that really means a lot to me, so I am happy I get to be a part of this with my sisters and I know that they will have an amazing experience.

So that's four down, eight to go! Don't worry, I am working on most of them currently!  I actually think I might be able to get all of them done in time!
