Facebook doesn’t accurately highlight my year. Not everything that happened was declared in a status.,
32 Things I learned in 2013:
- Graduation ceremonies are overrated.
- I’m a very horrible party planner.

- Summer quarter is no fun.

- Starbuck’s Peppermint Mocha is starting to taste like toothpaste.
- Spontaneous trips to Chipotle with the siblings will be missed.
- Facebook debates are immature.

- Miracles happen.
- My sister picks out good Christmas trees.
- I don’t like being an adult.
- It’s OK to let go of those autographed Jump 5 posters.

Also in 2014:

I’ve always been somewhat on the fence about New Year’s resolutions. Nonetheless, here are some things I want to be more consistent in! (Not just in 2014).
- Joy. In the worst of times, and in the best of times.
- Pursuing God. He pursued me first! Before I knew Him, He wanted me? Why? Because our God is full of grace.
- Love more.
- Worrying LESS.
Have a fantastic New Year! I hope to see and hear from you during Coffee Shop Talk 🙂
You are so special. I love you dearly. May 2014 be the best ever.
