badassery.

Yes, it's a word. Not only is it a word, it's MY word. It's my word for 2012.

Every year I choose a word, and live it. I also create an art project using the word.

Here's the definition:

badassery
Engaging in seemingly impossible activities and achieving success in a manner that renders all onlookers completely awestruck.

I don't want to necessarily engage in seemingly impossible activities, but I definitely want to achieve success. Rendering all onlookers completely awestruck would be a happy accident.

I have so many goals for the year - I want to finish my novel, I want to take my art to the next level - do more in my store, market myself more... learn new techniques.

Hoping beyond hope that a staffer spot at BG Camp opens in May. 'Cuz my badassery self would LOVE to do that.

I printed out my picture to use on a canvas to represent my word. It's the picture in my profile - one that screams badassery at me.



To me, badassery is almost like 'brave', my word for 2011.  It's just taking it to the NEXT LEVEL.  And you know what?  It's really fun to say.  It almost sounds dirty but it's NOT.  I like those kinds of words.  ;-) 

Go forth and choose your word... and post it here - I have a giveaway, and I will choose a random poster to receive a giftie... (besides, I love comments).  LOL 

xoxo <----- there's those damn x's and o's.

  1. Love "badassery!" My word for 2012 is REDUCE. As in reduce the negative to make room for the positive. Reduce my weight to gain energy and health. Reduce the clutter to gain order. Reduce my commitments to gain peace. <3

  5. Love your pic!

    My word of the year is "better". So many different ways it could be used, and almost all appropriate to me. I want to be a better person, a better parent, I would like to either do better on my current job, or find a better job. Lastly, I would like to feel better...

  7. My word this year is Surface... both in the coming back up to and clearing my way down to. There's been a lot of clutter in my world... both internal and external-- time to get rid of some of the mess.

  14. Sandi your word is perfect :)
    My word for 2012 is FOCUS :) I want to FOCUS on my art class business, my budget, savings, my healthy and activity levels and my relationship - with a any partner I may have and with my children.

    I'd like to continue to focus on moving away from the negativity my Ex keep bringing into my life too :(

  19. I have not found a word. Seriously thinking of stealing yours... but that would not be a fine example of badassism. I want a word that says I have a backbone, and intend to use it.. but I don't know what that word is. Help.

  20. Hehehe.... Anything for a comment!

    Mine is Engage! And I think if Patrick Stewart everytime I think about it!

  21. LOVE your word...I mean like really I should steal it LOVE it. I've been unsure about mine this year but I watched Fried Green Tomatoes earlier and I'm now thinking mine should be TOWANDA. Oh yeah.

  22. My word for 2012 is SPARTAN! This is the year I take no prisoners in many areas of my life--getting healthy, reaching grad. school goals, and kicking some major ass in my career. Our words are similar--Spartans are chalked full of badassery. Together Sparta and Badassery shall conquer the world. :) Kristina

  23. Ok had to think about this a while....My word is going to be Serenity. It is our first year homeschool the four children currently at home. They need peaceful hearts, I need one to maintain calm some days. I also think contentment plays into this. Learning to be content where we are.

  24. OK, so I wasn't aware of the rules because I already disclosed my word on Fb. Seems that some sort of explanation is required. Here goes:

    Fuck-tastic: n or adj (or whatever part of speech you want to use it as)- abbreviated version of Fan-fucking-tastic, derived from the root word "Fantastic" meaning "Conceived or appearing as if conceived by an unrestrained imagination;" the introduction of the letters f-u-c-k bring this to an unrestrained level (see what I did there?) to transform it into something greater.
    "I will have a fucktastic year full of unrestrained imagination. I will do what needs to be done in a beautiful way. I will rock the shit out of 2012."

    There you go!
