July 31st is my birthday! I have been a bit quiet about it on here… frankly, I’ve been quiet about a lot on here, this past year. This year was intense — by which I mean, it had some of the highest highs and the lowest lows — but overall, I’m surprised to admit that the highs outweighed the lows! I guess that makes me an optimist. I know, I know, I’m as stunned as you are. And what better way to show you the highlights of my year than on my favorite platform, Instagram? Thanks, Instagram, for storing all my memories and my best selfies. So here you are, in the medium of Instagram, the Highlights of my 33rd twirl around the sun:
My own space!
Podcasts! (I’m probably listening to Casefile or Last Podcast on the Left in this photo see the earbud?)
Living in my Dream City…
Seeing the fruits of my labors!
Crossing some “firsts” off my list! (ice skating in Bryant Park, going to the Tgives parade)
Getting into Tarot!
Workin’ the Polls!
33 — you’re a better Smashing Pumpkins song than you are a year, I’ll give you that. BUT! I think though the year has been a roller coaster, I’m happier now than I was when I started. Can’t say I’m not gonna be happy to see the door slam on 33… but it was a journey. And tomorrow it will be OVER! Sometimes you have to walk through fire to get to the other side, you know? 33 was my fire. Let’s see what 34 has to bring!
