30 12 / 2013

It is an understatement to say that a lot has happened since the last time I blogged.

Seriously, a lot has happened since May.

2013 has been a more wonderful year than I could have imagined. It came with its challanges, that is for sure. But I think this is the first time in years that I can reflect and say that I saw myself truly happy for the first time in a long time. I learned a lot about myself. This was very scary at first. I didn’t like the majority of the realizations I had about myself. I eventually got over that and, as cliché as it may sound, I was able to actually like myself enough to do things that were best for me.

I thought about writing a more detailed end-of-year re-cap post, but instead, I will stick with tradition, and show you my year in the songs that meant the most to me.

This is my 2013 List of Nine Songs that Made My Year. These songs are in no specific order. As a preface if you don’t already know, some of these songs were released this year, some were not. At almost 30, music is still the way I communicate best. When I often find it hard to put into words how I feel, I always know at some point in the year, I’ll find a song that does a way better job at telling my story…

1. Myth - Beach House
2. Unbelievers - Vampire Weekend
3. Ivory Black - Seryn
4. I Don’t Know - Lisa Hanngian
5. Shake - The Head and The Heart
6. Swinging Party - Lorde
7. 22 - Night Beds
8. Hippy Hill - Group Love
9. The Beauty Surrounds - Houses

Sometimes I catch myself driving faster to work on Mondays because I can’t wait to see/catch up with Katie and Lydia…

Set up at Zoë’s Kitchen for a night alone with hummus, and then some work on my laptop. I like spending time alone in public. The people watching is fascinating. (at Zoës Kitchen)

*I should probably mention that the previous and future posts are about characters I’ve conceptualized based on real life people. These people aren’t ACTUALLY cast in these roles… yet. ;)

Terrance Howard as the uber-Conservative that has scriptures of fire, brimstone, and damnation plastered all over his cubicle, and won’t drink from plastic cups because they are poison. His solution to stopping gay marriage? Elect a gay president and have him assassinated. 
I couldn’t make up this gold if I TRIED!

Carrying on the tradition that my mom started with me… Watching the red carpet and the Oscars with June. Here she is posing on our Tan Carpet, and the the right the Oscar stage that she has set up. ;)
