It’s the last day of the year, so of course I have to do a cliche “looking back on this year” post.
But as cheesy as it is, this year was probably the biggest of my life. I graduated college, moved to New York, and got my first real job.
It was a scary and surreal and ridiculous year full of change. I got to do some amazing things. I went to some great concerts, met my celebrity crush, went to 2 awesome ComicCons AND LeakyCon. Got to come to New York and explore the city. Hung out with great friends and made some new ones as well. Looking back, this year was basically ridiculous.
2012 was a tough year for me. There was a lot of loss and grief and depression. So going into 2013 my main goals were to work as hard as I could to be as happy as I could. Now that I’m able to look back on the year in full, I can say that I’ve mostly succeeded. It was rarely easy, but I made it where I wanted to be and doing what I want to do. And despite being stressed and anxious along the way, unsure of what was going to happen, I still made time to have fun with friends and family and enjoy my life.
I want to thank everyone who supported me this year. I am so grateful to everyone in my life. When things were hard, you all helped make it easier, and when things were happy and fun you were right there with me.
There’s probably a lot more I could say about this year, but I’ve never been one to dwell when there are good things coming up. And with how well 2013 is ending, I am optimistic and excited for what 2014 will bring.
And now that the sappiness is done, I’m going to turn on Netflix and avoid drunken New Yorkers for the night.
Happy New Year!
