2013 AND A TIME MACHINE
A New Year's Contest

The Mayan calendar finishes one of its great cycles in December 2012, which has fueled countless theories about the end of the world on December 21, 2012 at 11:11(UTC).
End of days? Will the world keep spinning after the Mayan Calendar ends? Most likely.

Another year has come and gone carrying along with it the bludgeoning weight of not only our regrets, failures and disappointments, but also our wishes, achievements and blessings. With all these things in mind, what from this year has inspired you most? Frustrated you most? What, where, and when were did the happiest and saddest of moments of 2012 occur? What lesson or letdown will you be carrying with you unto 2013? What do you wish for the most with this coming year? Do you want to plan this year out or have you already started planning your 2013 or will you just be winging it for once/ as always?

A new year can mean so much and varies quite vastly, too, from person to person and I personally would love to know what meaning new year's- this 2013 in particular, holds to you guys, hence the reason for this contest. :heart:

I know it looks long, I promise that it is under the maximum and that stash just made the spacing weird.
