And so 2013 finally comes to a close. I must admit, I've had a bit of a love-hate relationship with this year. It's been quite an eventful one. The boy and I had to say goodbye to the beautiful stray kitten we had adopted as we sadly gave up our first home together and moved back to our families. There were numerous occasions in which family members were placed in hospital, and there have been two unfortunate passings. But I am going to try and remember this past year not for those things, but for the good things that did happen.

I've met some really wonderful, unique and interesting people, both in the blogging world and in 'the real world', all of which bring me happiness. I saw Ringo Starr himself live in concert, and had him acknowledge me individually. That is one thing ticked off my 'dream' list that I never thought would ever happen. I've completed my first year of University studies and my first Practicum after procrastinating for quite some time. I had my palm read and swam in the beach for the first time in years. I am beginning to compile ideas for future drawings and artworks, something I haven't done in a while. The boy and I celebrated our first anniversary together and a beautiful new baby girl was brought into the world on Christmas Eve.
I've spent a lot of time with my wonderful Grandma who has been living with us recently. I've taken little trips here and there to see new and interesting places farther away from home than I usually go and I've tried to keep onto my guitar playing. But mostly it is the joyful little things that have happened this year that make me laugh or bring a smile to my face that I hope I will think of when I remember 2013, whether it be from the boy and I ridiculously running through a tropical cyclone together just to get lunch or my Grandma and I having a giggle on the balcony together.
Yes. This year has been a bit up and down but I am determined to make the most of 2014. Thank you all for reading my blog, it's been a real joy, and I wish you all the best for the next year.
Happy New Year!
