Goodbye ’12, Goodbye ’13, Hello… 2014

by , under personal, Pirate

If you caught that I shamelessly snagged the title of this post from A Chorus Line, I love you. If you didn’t, you should probably listen to the score. If nothing else, you’ll learn so much about me.

True story: I took my first steps to One. Even as a baby, I had a great sense of timing.

2013 was a big year in so many ways. It was the year that I ran two 5ks at Disneyland- the Neverland 5k in January and the Disneyland 5k on Labor Day weekend. And more importantly, I pushed myself a lot in my writing.

There were a few blogposts that I wrote while feeling daring, and hit ‘publish’ even though the thought terrified me. I wrote about my anxiety, about loneliness, about what’s probably depression. About gender roles… not for any attention, but because I thought it might help someone.

I’ve pushed myself outside of this blog. Talking to people, trying to trust again. And I can honestly say that I’ve met some wonderful wonderful people, who I really do count as friends, even if we’ve never met. (Mom, Dad – I swear, they aren’t serial killers)

I don’t know what 2014 will bring. I’m going to be running the Neverland 5k again this month. I have a couple conventions I’m going to, including the Supernatural Con in Vegas in March. I really hope that I’ll be able to meet some of you guys this year- if not in person, over Skype or something.

Just be forewarned, I sound like a teenager. (Oh wait, if you’ve seen the vlog you know what I sound like)

For our New Year’s Eve celebration, we did what we’ve done for the last few years. I prepared a bunch of appetizers (some homemade, mostly from Trader Joe’s) and we had prosecco at midnight. It’s fun, and I don’t have to worry about driving or finding a babysitter.

I wish you all a very Happy New Year. May you find everything in it that you’re looking for.

Go, have an adventure.
