Was reading about the maintained ban on raw almonds in California and remembered how I bought some raw, unripe GREEN almonds at valley produce a couple years ago. After cracking open the fruit, a few of those juicy white seeds were so dank in salad. And just seeing pictures of the fruits, cracked open with the almond hole, its green-grey outside, flashed me back to buying them at that market, cracking them open on my counter with a knife, and life back then. I can even feel their fuzziness on my fingertips, as well as being something a lot more naive and simple. Catching yourself saying "college was over only three years ago" is a powerful indication of getting old. But, even with a quarter of a life lived where a couple years begins to seem like a short period, it's so important to step back and reevaluate changes.

That said, new things done in 2012:
+wrote a 5000+ word A paper in 12 hours, footnotes and references
+drank prosecco through the Italo-Swiss border +++
+had a real roommate
+a summer "fling"
+translated the mayor's speech
+mountain climbed barefoot
+swam under a waterfall
+sang karaoke (long overdue)
+installed a window (big man)
+hosted people continuously for two months
