And where exactly did the old year go?

I had a truly lazy holiday season, sprinkled with work and not much else. On New Year's Eve I worked for two hours (on of my coworkers had a split shift - a stupid thing where she was scheduled to work 10-3 and then 6-8 or something like that - so I took the 6-8 part. It covered my beer for the night) and then had a few friends over to my place to hang out and drink and be generally relaxed and happy. And that was good. They left shortly after 1:30am and managed to catch the last bus.

We're still running the Hobbit at work. And I still love the music. But next week we're going from 4 shows down to 2 shows per day. Because no one is coming to the 11:30am or the 10:30pm anymore. But it means that everyone's shifts are cut down which sucks, because minimum wage is not enough to cover living expenses when I have a decent number of shifts. But I'll have some time off and maybe I'll get some writing done.

It's January now which means I should hear back about that archaeology job in Calgary soon. And if I don't hear back in a week I'm going to email them just so I can know for sure. I'm super nervous. I really want this job. I would be working in my field and actually earning enough money to live and things would be good! So wish me luck! (At least if I don't get this one there's still others I know will be hiring in a couple of months.)

And some things that happened in 2012 (in no particular order):
- Finished Grad School - I may have had to rewrite a comprehensive exam, but I still finished - Aderam, BAH, MA
- Didn't go on a dig and didn't go to Europe - (unlike the last four years)
- Survived two and a half months of unemployment
- Got my first full (ish) time job. - Working at the movie theatre
- Grandfather died. Down to 1 of 6(ish) grandparents
- Turned 25
- Purchased my first set of new goalie pads
- Attended two weddings

Places I slept in 2012 (other than home):
- Paradise, Newfoundland
- Edmonton, Alberta
- Waterton Lakes, Alberta
- A hotel (on the highway going to Waterton), British Columbia
- Toronto, Ontario
- Kingston, Ontario
- Calgary, Alberta
- Victoria, British Columbia

Which means that I didn't leave Canada at all this year (despite going from end to end). That's weird.
