It’s that time of year when we’re looking back on everything that’s happened in that last 12 months--s, , and . It’s also a good time to look back on everything that’s happened to you personally, and Facebook has a fun way to get a mini-review of your 2012 life.

Simply go to and you should be directed to a summary of your new friends middle aged and single, new likes, and monthly highlights.

Every year, my mom likes to embarrass the crap out of me by sending a Christmas card to everyone we know, including an unflattering picture and a goofy letter summing up what we’ve all done the past year. Last year, my summary was like, “Gena got dumped, lost her job, and now she lives at home annoying us.” JK, my mom would never say that even though it was all true!

If Facebook wrote our family letter this year, it would be all, “Gena , was a bridesmaid in a wedding, and got a gray hair.”

(The reason the gray hair is a big feature of my year is because I posted this picture of a little present my dad sent me. It's possibly the most popular photo I shared all year, so evidently, all my FB friends thought it was just as hilarious as he did. You jerks.)

Seeing as how those are some of the most prominently featured stories of my year, it’s pretty clear I didn’t have a big twelve months in the romance department. Seriously, the guys featured in my FB-provided photo montage above are: my brother, my cousin, and a gay dude (I do love them all though!)

But hey, I also added 47 new friends and one job at Glamour, so I’ll take it. Thanks for some good ones, 2012.

Did you check out your Year in Review? Silly but kind of fun, right? Did any of you have more romantic highlights? What would your Christmas letter summary of your year be like?
