1. Wait, wait _what a year this has been_. 2. _Life_ is a little different. 3. In addition, _I'm nervously looking forward to the Arisia Art Show (where I'll be displaying my jewelry, etc)_. 4. _With a smile_ is the way we do it here! 5. At the end of the year, I like to _wish the old year good riddance and welcome the new one in with hope_. 6. _A new job_ is one of the things I'm looking forward to in 2012. 7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to _dinner with friends_, tomorrow my plans include _celebrating that NYE thing_ and Sunday, I want to _drive to VT for lunch_!
