Today is my last shift of the year at the Advocate. Every end of December I am that person that always says things that sound epic and long like "see you next year" when in actuality I'll be back at work on Wednesday. It's a tradition of mine. To me, that is a lot of what the holidays are about: tradition. Every year my mother and I make water chestnuts wrapped in bacon (and then she usually gets distracted by some other task and I end up doing all the work), my sister arrives just in time for the food to be not quite done, but not in time to help cook. My big brother beats me up a little for no reason other than I am his little sister. Tradition. Therefore I bring you in this post my other New Year tradition: a ridiculously long blog post recapping the year in entirely too many photos because I am a terrible self-editor. Enjoy.

Also, check out the Sunday 12/30 edition of the paper to see a Year in Photos from all of our photo staff (not just the annoying one) here at the Advocate. You can also see it here.

Kudos to you for making it this far! I really do need to learn to self-edit. I took more photos this year that you could say I am journalistically proud of but I felt like these photos all made me feel good. Whether it was the photos themselves, or they invoked a memory from the assignment and the people that I met that day. This is our community in 2012 through my eyes (and lens). Thanks for having a peek and Happy New Year.
