It’s New Year’s Eve again. Once that clock hits 12, it’s goodbye 2013, hello 2014.
All I can say is.. my 2013 was a mess. You know those moments you look back on that make you cringe about how stupid you were? Mine wouldn’t be just a moment. It would be a whole year. 2013. A terrible, nerve-wracking, ridiculous time I will slap myself for in the future.
It was like I hit puberty all over again. Got zits. Dressed weird. Lots of drama. Thought drama would stay in high school.. apparently not. Cried over people, over things, over situations. Gained weight. Got more zits. Lost sleep. I like my sleep. I like my sleep so much that I slept during work, during dinners, during road trips. Became anti-social.. just a bit. Got even more zits. Cried again. Accomplished something. Turns out, not really. Made stupid decisions. Wore something strange. Did something dumb. Face palm. Tried again. Made even more stupid decisions. Repeat.
As frustrated as I sound.. I don’t think I would have wanted it to go any other way.
I’m happy to have met the people who left, the people I want to slap, the people who stayed and the people who have left their mark on me. Words are not enough to say how much you all mean to me. I can’t wait to see (some of) you again because I miss you all a lot <3
Give me this one time to be extra sentimental because I love new year’s eve. A new year means hope - a clean slate, a second chance, a new beginning. Just as I am trying something new with my black sketchpad, it’s time for you and I to smile more, loosen up, draw more, save more, create more, go places, meet even more, see sights, eat more, laugh more, bond more, love more, forgive more, pray more, wish a little more, dream even more, be better.. amaze and inspire.
Goodbye, 2013. You were fun. Hello, 2014! Looking forward to longer hair, cray work, long talks, more walks, breaking habits, changing lifestyles, new issues and everything in between!! <3
