Slightly bummed this new years because I found out that an ex proposed to his new girlfriend over Christmas. His thing was always that he didn't want kids. Now he's marrying someone who has two of them. Go figure. Yes, my intellect says there's a reason he's an "ex" and he has some really bad qualities, but emotionally it's still kind of hurtful. Particularly because I'm spending this new year's alone with zero dating prospects. I'm seriously hoping that 2012 not only brings me a full-time teaching job, but also some romance. I really need it. What are you hoping for in the new year?
