So fun stuff, let's see. In the past year that I've abandoned this blog (which seems to be a reoccurring theme) I have changed school districts, started Kung Fu and Tai Chi, delved full force into my love of costumes (for ANY occasion, or none at all!), found new ways to introduce fake mustaches to friends and strangers, learned to poi dance, made and strengthened so many friendships, and found happiness in HULA HOOPING!!! Which might sound like a strung together list of silly hobbies, but really each one has changed my life this year in surprisingly drastic ways.
The job was such a crazy big thing, to go into it here would be tedious for any reader but me. I mention it mainly because, well, I am probably my only reader. And it is kind of nice to look back and see that personal timeline. So maybe Inigo had it right after all? But let me just say, I haven't cried this year. I feel valued. And most importantly, I don't feel at all held back from making a difference for kids.
I want to go back to writing silly posts, but felt that I had to sum up, just a little. So I'll keep it short and simply say in closing: this girl, at age 30, is happy. More happy than ever-- which is pretty incredibly happy.
