Reflecting on 2012: The year of becoming an adult

As 2012 comes to an end and 2013 is upon us like many others I have been doing a lot of reflecting. 2012 was a decent year. I know at the end of the year many are ready for the year to end and to start a new one. There have been some crappy things […]
