The year in short.

Another year, another time for reflection and recapping. I know it’s typical; I did it last year, so I guess I’ll succumb to tradition and do it again.

Quiet year, don’t you think so? It was good nevertheless. I discovered a little more, loved a whole lot more, laughed a lot and more importantly, I met really cool and wonderful people even though they are far away from me.

Good times. Honest.
