My 2013 in Review

2013It was a strange year for me. Nothing particularly amazing happened. If hard pressed for highlights, I suppose I could say:

— Participated in LeaderShape and got to work with some awesome Student Leaders!
— Went to see Boyz II Men, 98 Degrees, and NKOTB in concert
— Finalized my divorce
— Got Accepted to Non-degree status in Graduate School
— Participated in the design and implementation of a new position at work
— Started volunteering in the nursery at church
— Joined Co-curricular Committee at Work
— Attended the Residential Curriculum Institute in South Carolina
— Became a little paparazzi in NYC catching a glimpse of Orlando Bloom and cheesing with Dule Hill
–Got a 100% in my first course towards my PhD
— Received the Poopin’ Reindeer for Christmas, my invitation into the cool club.

My list isn’t particularly long, but things with work have been going well and I’ve started on my journey towards a PhD.  I’m just kind of content right now.  I’ve got this peace about where I am in life.  That’s not to say I’ve lost my drive and ambition– I have a degree to pursue and career goals to achieve– but I’m not looking back on 2013 with regrets.  And that, to me, is a good year!

Here’s to an even better one in 2014!
