This year has been really good to me, and I thought I'd recap some of my favorite moments. In 2013 Paul and I fell even more in love with Eugene. Downtown was revitalized. Red Wagon opened a shop. We found new murals, and I don't think we ever missed a farmer's market.
In 2013 I turned 21. I got glasses. I fell in love with beer, and I learned how to make it.
During spring break we went to the beach. I took a nap. And Paul turned me into art.
We went to Sasquatch, and I saw Andrew Bird. He was beautiful.
The weekend before I graduated we went camping at Crater Lake. It was my first time, and it was beautiful.
Speaking of graduating, I graduated college cum laude in three years with a major in Comparative Literature and minors in Spanish and Creative Writing with a focus on poetry. I'm pretty proud of that.
In 2013 we adopted a feral kitten, named her Joey, and she changed our lives.
We took a road trip to San Francisco.
I saw a cow and was so happy.
In 2013 I found my calling. I started working in the Primate Osteology Lab. I spent a lot of time around bones. I applied to grad schools to get my PhD in Biological Anthropology. It was scary. But I also made some great pies.
This was a year of snow that Eugene didn't know what to do with.
And to top it off, I went to Mexico for the first time and saw lots of whales and it was the best thing ever. Yep. This year was pretty great. Top that, 2014.
