There are five days left until I leave for Sarasota Opera! I'm looking forward to being in the Apprentice Artist program and am in the midst of a final memorization push. In other news - Happy New Year! A friend of mine recently posted a list of her top 10 greatest moments/achievements of 2012 and invited friends to post theirs in a comment. Let's do it! Here are my "Top Ten of 2012" and I'd love for you to leave your's in a comment.

Highlights for 2012
Surgery for my septum, not fun but it has made me a healthier person
Moving into my new very cute apartment with my very cute roomate
Learning to sing in Russian and rocking it!
Getting to be there for my little sister's college graduation
Singing my first professional roles in years
Winning first place at a singing competition and cash awards at others
Getting down to the weight that had been my goal for years
(even if some pounds came back on)
Spending tons of time with my best friend, Chelsea, while in NYC doing auditions!
Meeting my wonderful boyfriend, Colin.
Getting accepted to four young artist programs with alternate status at a fifth.
This past year I feel like I have finally gotten my career off the ground. I am so thankful that years of hard work are finally paying off. That said, I feel I'm missing moments with friends and family. As I decide on New Years resolutions, I will bare in mind ways to focus on strengthening relationships with the people in my life and making time to see my family more frequently, even if that means skype.
Happy New Years everyone!
