the cliche reflective post of 2011

well 2012 is here, and we’re not dead yet! 2011 was probably one of the best years of my life. school was good to me, friendships became stronger, my work ethic grew, and my affinity for music became even stronger. it is safe to say i am sad to see 2011 go, but look forward to the fun that 2012 brings!

with that being said, i feel that it is my duty as a blogger to create a “best of 2011” list. and since the only thing im knowledgeable about is music, here you go!
