My 2013 Recap

2013 held a lot of amazing things for me, mixed in with some sad things as well. It’s nice to look back on the year and see what I’ve overcome, what I’ve enjoyed, and what I hope to improve on in 2014.

  • January: I don’t remember this month all that well. I did get my Christmas presents from Haley in the mail though. I won an ARC of “Unravel Me” by: Tahereh Mafi, for reading “Shatter Me” online in only 9 hours (that’s with bathroom and eating breaks).
  • February: My mum was in the hospital twice and it was one of the most frightening things I’ve experienced. My auntie Misty visited from Florida. I visited my favorite teacher from high school, Mrs Richardson.
  • March: Not a lot happened this month.
  • April: Haley bought my plane tickets to come out to Chicago, along with our tickets to see the JoBros the day I got in. Went on a walk with my parents around the fairgrounds. My baby cousin Elysia was born.
  • May: Took my mum out to the local ice cream shop for Mother’s Day and then we walked around the fairgrounds while we ate our ice cream. My gramma E died.
  • June: Bought some of the stuff I needed to go to Chicago. Turned 21.
  • July: Flew for the first time by myself to Chicago. Met Haley and Sarah, for the first time. Saw the Jonas Brothers live. Went to the Taste of Chicago. Rode the ferris wheel on the Chicago Navy Pier. Saw 5 Seconds of Summer and One Direction live.


  • August: Won an ABC Family summer prize pack and a book.
  • September: Got myself a library card so that I could read ebooks for free. Went to the local ice cream place for the last time of the season and then went on a walk around the fairgrounds. Visited Mrs. Richardson with Jerrica.
  • October: Went to the Fair with my mum and Jerrica. Saw Jana Kramer live and met her at the Fair.


  • November: One of my friends, Kristina, sent me a postcard from London while she was studying abroad. Made four yummy desserts for Thanksgiving. Won a dvd set of the first 10 episodes of the tv show “The Fosters”. Put up the Christmas tree with mummy.
  • December: Went to the town Christmas tree lighting with my parents. Painted a Starry-night Tardis tote bag for a friend. Won a set of fragrance pencils from Mark. Girl. Got Christmas presents from Jerrica, Haley, Andrea, Holly, my brother & sis-in-law, and Lore. Made a yummy dessert for Christmas.
