2015 Recap

I have been terrible about blogging for the past year. 2015 was a tumultuous year for me. It had a ton of ups and downs and life changing events.

Here is a non-extensive list of good and bad things that happened this year. I’ve omitted some bad things that I don’t want to talk about, but I caught most of the good things, I think!

 

January

-I saw Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness with Insiya.

-My arm touched Andrew’s. It was wonderful.

-I went to paint and sip for the first time.

-I had one wild, eventful evening out.

 

February

-I had 3 job interviews in one week and one of them offered me a job! But it was too far of a commute…
