HAHAHAH wow this last portion of the year flew by so fast I can't even! I honestly cannot believe it's been almost four months since my last entry here. Time flies by when there is a lot going on. (No, seriously, when I logged on just now I saw that one artist I follow made 130+ new pieces of art OTL will I ever catch up what a powerhouse) I saw someone else on DA make an entry to fill out their personal experience of this year with the meme below, so I decided for fun that I could sum up/generally record what the year has been like for me as well. I accomplished some big goals this year that I secretly pat myself on the back for, but overall it feels like it was a "build up" kind of year -- a year that helped lay some foundations to reach even bigger goals. Now that I have these basic foundations set up, it's time to really get to work to make sure they don't go to waste and make these goals of next year come true! With that said, let's review the year :)
1.  What did you do in 2013 that you'd never done before? 
Took the word "independence" to heart, saw one of the best bands I adored since late middle school/high school live: PARAMORE, got my first pet (meow), became an adrenaline junkie, let my hair grow to its longest length ever, created a more put-together style, traveled to new places, tried new kinds of food through cooking and eating at restaurants, shot my own mini-film, became a concept artist for a video game, learned how to start using industry-standard artsy programs, and of course...GOT A JOB. AND BOUGHT AN ARTIST ALLEY TABLE FOR ANIME EXPO 2014!! :') (I crey evry tiem thinking about them both, ahhh) 
2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year? 
I think I did for the most part! Career-wise I got involved in more artistic projects, experimented more with my art and sketches. I want to push it a lot further this year, though. Really try to start getting my name out there as well as take care of myself more health-wise. I also want to travel!!!!

3. Did anyone close to you give birth? 

No, but classmates I once knew like two years ago are starting to have children??

4. Did anyone close to you die? 

Not this year...

But petwise my favorite kitty of lyssachansan's passed away. We had something speciiaaallll whyyyyyy 

5. What countries did you visit? 

Too busy to go out of the country this year, but I had several trips exploring around my beautiful golden state :D

6. What would you like to have in 2014 that you lacked in 2013?

9. What was your biggest failure? 

My deterioration of time management in the fall. 5 classes plus nearly maxed-out hours at work left me scrambling for air. I somehow survived but it could have been a bit more graceful near the end had I kept to a more rigid schedule

10. Did you suffer illness or injury? 

Aside from my stress-related crap, I was a passenger in a car accident in LA. Thankfully only the cars got really banged up.

       ii. thinner or fatter? thinner

      iii. richer or poorer? RICHER. but still a poor college student, lol

18. What do you wish you'd done more of? 

Drawing out the ideas I kept writing down instead

The only thing that matters for the present is starting now for yourself; who cares what someone else is doing

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year: 

I don't know where you're going but do you got room for one more troubled soul?
