The Past and the Future

This is 2014, the NEW YEAR. And instead of doing NY Resolution and whatnot, cuz I know they hardly works out past January, I decided to just highlight things I accomplished from 2013, and list out things or plans that I have in store for me for the NY. The 2014 stuff is not exactly a goal or whatnot, but I’d think it’s a good way to start the whole motion of setting up my goal.

2013 in review :

General :

  • The big Move in May – at this point I can’t elaborate yet…
  • Tons of Summer Love from living by the beach; sunsets and sunsets and sunsets…
  • Memorable Camping trip – memorable in both good and bad way
  • More hikes with new group and new people, gorgeous pictures at Joffre Lake, Dog Mountain
  • Found a fabulous kickboxing instructor
  • Completed 13 books
