Well, friends – we made it. We’ve finally made it to end of 2013. To be perfectly and completely honest this is going to be one year that I won’t be sad to say goodbye to. In fact, based on a lot of the conversations I’ve had with people I’m certainly not the only one who feels that way. It seems like this year was a bit of a jerk to a good number of us.
For a while now I’ve had my sights set steadfastly on 2014. I was so ready to kick 2013 to the curb. When I compared it to my last few years this one definitely felt like the worst in a while and, I won’t lie, I was a little bitter about it.
A few days ago though I was talking with a friend about it I started to feel like I wasn’t giving the past year enough credit. I mean, it wasn’t all bad. In fact, once I started thinking about it the year wasn’t all that bad at all.
So, to send off 2013, here are 13 things that made this year cool:
- Ran my first half marathon
- When to Disneyland
- Paid off my car 2 years early (I didn’t write about this but, man, what a proud moment)
- Drove to Winnipeg
- Started The Let’s Go Ladies
- When to Jasper Dark Sky
- Met Chris Hadfield
- Spent more time with my family
- Played on an unedeated championship team
- Started kick boxing
- Got braces
- Adopted Hastings the cat
