I’m going to put up some New Year’s resolutions soon, but first, here are some things I learned last year. I mean, this year. (I guess it’s not 2012 yet.) As my readers know, I love to make random lists, and this is no exception:
1. I learned that there are some great people in the Church. Seriously, this is the number one thing I learned. I met some amazing people this year. Some truly amazing, humble, godly people who somehow thought it was worth their time to make time for me.
2. I learned that there are some not-so-great people in the Church.
3. I learned to take Benjamin Disraeli a little more seriously when he said “Never explain, never apologize.”
4. I learned that trolls are just about the biggest time drain in the universe.
5. I learned that I was too liberal for some conservatives.
6. I learned that I was too conservative for all liberals.
7. I learned that writing songs could be easier than I thought.
8. I learned that forgiveness could be harder than I thought.
9. I learned that bad writing, slick visuals and obnoxious liberalism will get you everywhere. (*cough*, Rob Bell, *cough-cough*)
10. I learned that stuff doesn’t always make sense (like the fact that bad writing, slick visuals and obnoxious liberalism will get you everywhere).
11. I learned that mint hot chocolate leaves regular hot chocolate in the dust.
12. Finally and most importantly, I learned that Marty McFly invented rock and roll:
What did you learn this year? Please share.
