2013… You have treated me pretty nicely! Please keep it up for next year, it will be pretty hard to top the year I have had!
2013 was a massive growth year for me. FINALLY moving out of home for the first time at the start of the year, and by the end of the year living on the other side of the world in Canada… with a lot of fun times (and not so fun times) thrown in!
Here is just a little taste of what my year involved….
JANUARY was filled with the beach, parties, hikes, sunshine….
FEBRUARY was the month I moved out of home! Also the month of the Rugby 7s in Wellington!
MARCH was the arrival off a couple of cute new flatmates. Finally became a bit of a cat person.
APRIL I just casually WON A TRIP TO HAWAII!!!
MAY… we were still in Hawaii for the start of May, then came back too broke to do anything else for that month…
JUNE I started (or attempted) to get serious about saving for Canada… but I did treat myself to a night at Phantom of the Opera and a few day trips around Wellington!
JULY was the month of the biggest party of the year- the Flight Centre Ball! And of course they went all out as usual… Mad Hatters Tea Party Flight Centre Style!
AUGUST I had a mid winter Christmas party with my friends! Tried to spend as much time with friends as possible in my last 2 months in New Zealand!
SEPTEMBER was my last month in New Zealand! Finished up work a little early so I could spend as much time with friends and family as possible, played tourist in my city as well as had my leaving party.
OCTOBER the adventure began! Spent some time in Vancouver and Victoria before making my way to Whistler to settle down in my new home. Also started this blog, to keep in touch with everyone back home and to potentially turn it into something more!
NOVEMBER Whistler came to life! The snow started falling, the village started pumping… and got to see my first ice hockey game! (Pretty much the only game the Canucks won this season…)
DECEMBER and Winter is finally kicking in! Had my first White Christmas as well as started snowboarding (well trying…)
So I think all-in-all I have had a pretty good year! I am so grateful for everything I have been blessed with this year, and I will treasure this one forever. I hope 2014 brings more adventure, more friendships and more amazing memories!
