A lot has happened this year, not just in my life, but in the lives of all of us at VALCANA. Leaving old jobs, finding new jobs, moving, big life changes, and essentially a whole lot of growing up.
A new year never used to be a big deal to me. I never made resolutions. I didn’t care about big New Years parties (let’s be honest, that’s only because we often had family Christmas in Canada around New Years).
Entering into 2013 was different. I was out of school. The New Year wasn’t just a gateway to another semester and to more school—it was the start of a new year of work and a new job, of trips, of beautiful friendships to be made (and lost). I entered into the age of 23. I actually made resolutions for the first time ever (well, writing goals, to be exact). I did some scary, exciting, and just plain fun things. A New Year is such a great time to look back at life, and to think about all of the wonderful places that you want to go and will go.
Highlights of 2013
I baked a cheesecake for the first time.
People came and visited me in Greenville.
Went on my very first vacation with Jacob to Savannah, GA.
Finished (almost) an 8 year old project with my best friend, Heather and WROTE A WEBCOMIC.
I know wonderful people who make my life happy.
And, finally, I learned so very much about myself and others. I hope that is always a highlight of every year of my life.
Things I can’t wait for in 2014
Being in Paris, France, with my best friend Katie during the month of April.
Vacations with Jacob—more to come on this.
Simply getting to be around these wonderful people that I know, and spend time with them, and through knowing them more know myself more.
What are some of the highlights of your year? What do you look forward to most in 2014?
