Year In Review

ImageWith 2013 almost over it’s about time to reflect on everything that’s happened in the last 365 days or so.  I’ve had a busy year.  Most people say that but compared to my previous years this one takes the cake.

  • I changed from full-time to part-time at work
  • I started at Cleveland Chiropractic College to finish up my undergrad work
  • It snowed… a LOT (cleaning up feet upon feet of snow alone sucks)
  • I was snowed in at work so patients would have the care they deserve
  • I had a birthday (duh)
  • I was accepted into the doctorate program
  • I left my job completely to start school full time
  • I put two dogs down for serious health reasons just a few weeks apart
  • I filed for divorce (which wasn’t exactly smooth)
  • I lost two dogs in the split (still have my little cuddle buddy though)
  • I lost a best friend that had been by my side for years
  • I’ve learned how hard it is to take care of a house completely alone (although it’s not changed that much)
  • I’ve started the doctorate program at Cleveland University Kansas City (they got university status in January)
  • I’ve made numerous new friends
  • I’ve had more than a few first dates
  • I’ve found a new best friend and confidant 
  • I’ve learned that I’m not as strong as people believe I am but I’m stronger than I think
  • I’ve been able to check several items off of my bucket list
  • I’ve learned that I like quiet

Overall I think that it’s been a very good year.  Lots of changes but change is good.  Being able to adapt to those changes is better.  I’m stronger for everything that I’ve experienced and as much as I’d like to say that I would rather have had a quiet year I wouldn’t change it for anything.  I finally look forward to the future and welcome it and all that it brings.
