"It had taken almost ninety minutes for these little fuckers to kick in, but once they had…WOW! I had gone straight past the tingle phase and right into the drool phase. Actually, I had discovered a new phase, somewhere between the drool phase and a state of unconsciousness. It was the…what was it? I needed a name for this phase. It was the cerebral palsy phase! Yes! My brain would no longer send clear signals to my musculoskeletal system. What a wonderful new phase! My brain was sharp as a tack, but I had no control of my body. Too good! Too good!"

So, 2013 has come to an end. Thats really weird to say because it feels so recently that I said the same about 2012. But the more I think about this year the more I realize how eventful it was.
This was probably the most up and down year of my life: the good times were great and the bad times were pretty unpleasant. But it has also been the most transforming year of my life. I view things and react to things in a totally different way than I ever have in my life.
My resolution, however, remains the same as last year: to be happy. I want to continue traveling, to be kinder and more respectful to those around me, to begin reading more, and to start drawing again (s/o to Mari for those last two resolutions).
Finally, I want to thank all my friends and family from the bottom of my heart. To all the new friends I’ve made this year, both away from the computer and online- thanks for being the genuine and loving people you are; I am so grateful for your friendship. This year I’ve also learnt that sometimes friendships don’t always last- and that’s ok. I can’t possibly please everyone and my goal shouldn’t be to do so. I’ve become comfortable with who I am and have learned to forgive myself.
- so thanks 2013, it’s been quite a ride.
I hope you all have an absolutely fabulous new year!!!
