The good, bad and ugly stuff that happened to me in 2012

I detest typical “Year in Review” posts:

I ran in 2012 wearing these ridiculous glasses with my little sister, who came to York for the occasion.

“I GOT ENGAGED.”

“I HAD A BABY.”

“I BOUGHT A HOUSE.”

Yep, I’ve done none of said things. I’m still living in my awesome bachelorette pad apartment in York city. I don’t have a ring on it. And there certainly isn’t a fetus growing inside of me (that I’m aware of).

But hey, I still had a pretty awesome year full of adventures, successes and things that made me think.

Here’s a list of the good, the bad and the ugly from 2012:

1. In February, I posed with large, industrial tires. And I hung out with ghost hunters.

2. March brought the biggest honor of all! I was chosen for Digital First Media’s ideaLab, which bestowed upon me my first iPhone ever.

3. @fakelaurenboyer happened.

4. I turned 24 … and live-tweeted it.

5. I saw this weird-looking guy sitting on his stoop.

6. I did a lot of live chats with cool community members and hung out in weird places.

7. I finally won something.

8. #boyer101

9. I welded.

10. The mysterious bathroom button in Rutter’s.

11. The HoodiePillow. I can’t believe someone pays me to write about this stuff.

12. My first ever long-term project, Risky Business, ran. Co-worker Sean Adkins and I spent months on it.

13. Poop.

14. I molded young minds.

15. I traveled to Newtown, Conn., with coworker Chris Dunn to work for DFM’s Thunderdome team covering the immediate aftermath of the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting. If you’d like to see a sample of what I wrote, click here.

  1. You need to get out more.

  2. That sounds like a pretty awesome list. Definitely great achievements different from the marriage centered folks

  3. Sounds like a good year and its yours so it doesn’t have to be like anyone elses. I’d like to hear about the Ghost Hunters sometime.
