December 30, 2013

I bought a lot of new cookbooks and tried a lot of new recipes. I visited Alberta, British Columbia, New York City and Boston. I drove around Vancouver Island for five days. I fell for this gorgeous country. I fell even harder for the mountains. I snowshoed in just a sweater and kayaked in the rain. My interest in travelling to South America and Asia peeked. I found out that I will be studying and living in Denmark for 6 months. I actually scored a few photography real gigs. I recently deleted my Twitter account. I felt a lot of anxiety (ahem, am still feeling a lot of anxiety) about post-graduate "plan". What the fuck am I going to do now? I watched a lot of Gilmore Girls. I listened exclusively to Trouble Will Find Me throughout spring and summer. I read books and watched documentaries on nutrition and wellness. I started juicing, and I stopped eating animal meat. I began to truly care about the environment and nature. I rekindled with old friends.

I didn't read enough books. I forgot to brings bags to the grocery store too often. There were some situations where I wish I acted more like an adult. Sometimes I was too lazy to put the banana peels into the compost. I didn't open up to people as my heart wants me to. I experienced one too many hangovers. I saw someone that I care about deal with a devastating loss. I fought with people and I didn't forgive enough. I broke down over the future, and felt awkward about the past. I still haven't watched It's A Wonderful Life.

I really haven't been much for words and social media and blogging these days. But I can't resist doing a 2013 wrap up post. So here it is, some stand out memories from the past year.
