7. Hug my dad for the first time in six months
9. Bake that cake for my boyfriend
10. Totally clean my room
11. Take more pictures
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!
