2013 was pretty great. I got through the majority of major requirements for my Child Development degree and my Early Intervention/Special Eduction certificate; got a solid handle on ASL; attempted Mandarin, even though it didn’t go quite as smoothly; got pretty busy and learned to really appreciate time with friends; turned myself into a redhead…
Visited Seattle for ECCC, Anaheim for WonderCon, Portland for RCCC, returned to San Diego for SDCC, got heat stroke in Puerto Vallarta, pet a caribou in Alaska, partied in Las Vegas, finally went back to Disneyland, utterly failed at skiing in Truckee…
Made fantastic new friends; got my health under control; spent a lot of time learning about myself and where I’m coming from; learned to understand what motivates me and how I get in my own way; relaxed; started writing; started working on a comic; struggled a lot to stay on top of it; learned a lot from the struggle…
And now I have my ducks in a row for next year! Beth and I have a set working schedule for The Big Leagues. We bought the webspace for it and we’re building the website soon. By the end of 2014 I’ll have both my CD degree and my EI/SE certificate in hand. I’ve got some amazing trips planned with family and friends. And, I’ve made a couple resolutions (or, as I see them, goals to work on without hating myself for lapsing in them): quitting smoking, and taking walks on a regular basis. Just to boost my overall health which, although WAY better than it was in 2012, is still pretty hilariously fragile.
So, yay! Onwards and upwards! But no rules tonight. Sac House, I am coming for you, and it’s gonna be brutal.
