My 21st year… according to the internet
Happy Birthday to Me!
My birthday has never been a big deal. Now, before you freak out, what I mean by that is that it has rarely warranted a big party or to-do. A meal made for me, dessert, family or friends and a few presents and I am primed and ready to go for the next year.
As my birthday day rolls by, without much comment or hurrah, I have been thinking about what the last year has been. On first thought I mostly found myself comparing it to my twentieth year, a year filled with new adventures, new countries and new friends. Most years would likely pale in comparison to that, but I quickly realized that I was counting my year short, forgetting the fun and adventures that were had.
So… to commemorate my old year as I move into the new, I present to you
a visual journey of my year, according to the internet
September: My friends had graduated and I was newly single. Life on the whole looked bleak. Soon though my heart began to heal and the joy of some great roommates, who I met on craigslist (new girl anyone?) started to fill my life with joy!
October: By October I had a job and had connected with great people. Life was pretty good.
November was filled with family. I ran the turkey day 5 K in Minneapolis with my mom and hunted ‘wild’ birds with my dad.
November: Reconnected with family and formed the council of the youngers
December: My favorite holiday was made even better with the addition of Christmas tree glasses.
December: Our apartment began to embrace its name, the Alamo, but looked more like the north poled decked out for Christmas.
December: My best friends fluke of a bachelorette party turned into a turning point for my year.
January: Began to discover printmaking
February: Started an awesome food company.
March: Started blogging again.
May: Killed it through exams.
June: visited this amazing lady in NYC
July: Get to go to the all star game!
July: Had all kinds of fun at one of my best friend’s wedding.
August: The new crew at the Alamo moved in.
August: Broke up with my company to seak out greater things
August: Managed to make it to the Iowa State Fair
