Bloggers like lists & recaps.
So here's my recap of my 2013.
It was a doozy.
I quit my teaching job.
Let the misery begin.
In reality, one form of misery ended
but the misery of being bored & unsatisfied & not knowing where my life was going
I was convinced to take the LSAT --
at least something to occupy my time.
(I'm sure it will pay off in the end…maybe.)
March is a blur --
one existential crisis after another.
Pain. Lots of pain.
I started blogging!
Because misery loves company & attention.
Little did I know, people would actually want to
read my millennial complaints.
My whining hit the mark
for more people than I ever expected.
So, thanks for having the same #firstworldproblems that I have?
Meredith got married in Houston
& gave me an excuse for a mini-roadtrip/forget about my troubles!
Plus, I got to binge-watch the newest Arrested Development.
Oh, the disappointment.
I swore I would only take it once
and I stay true to my word.
I took an extended trip home,
because what else does one do when one has NOTHING to do.
I got a job!
I was unaware of the hell it would quickly become,
so I was overjoyed.
Nothing's changed, except the smallest raise in the history of raises
and a different job title.
I moved back to Dallas.
Love the fact the my commute became almost non-existent
and that I'm closer to friends,
hate leaving Fort Worth behind.
I adored my first (tiny) adult apartment
and living downtown
and the comfortable feel of Fort Worth.
But Dallas is cool too, I guess.
Also, Em got married!
SUCH a fun wedding.
Absolutely nothing but work & summoning up
the energy to see friends.
This is what the rest of my life looks like.
I started working at Anthro!
Also, my first alumni weekend during which
I actually felt a bit awkward being on campus.
KP visited Dallas, Em had a birthday, & I wore a monocle.
The best of months.
I quit Anthro.
I'm a one-job kind of girl, it turns out.
I demoted myself.
But New Year's Eve!
I love the holiday season because it's sparkly and Jesus,
but NYE is the pinnacle of shimmery days.
It's actually frowned upon to NOT have glitter.
It's also a time of remixes,
as we attempt to edit the last year into something better than what it actually was.
Hindsight & rose-colored glasses & whatnot.
So here's a playlist for NYE, including some fab remixes:
