12 Photos from '12

Since Project 365 dominated my blogging life in 2012, I thought I’d do a year-in-review with photos. Despite life-devouring grad school, it was a pretty epic year.

Happy New Year, everyone. Thanks for reading.

Year in review mixtape: swan fillet.

For this year in review, I want to do something different. I enjoy reading others’ questionnaires but didn’t enjoy filling my own out, and my “post the first line from the first post of each month” meme results bored me. This year just seems too big to summarize as I’ve done in the past.

Once upon a time, I used to make mixtapes. I won’t pretend that they were any good, but I miss paying that level of attention to the music that moved me. So here is my year in review in mixtape form. No droll footnotes or quoted lyrics … just songs that brought pieces of me from there to here and reassembled them almost in order.

I call it “swan fillet”.
