My Year in a Nutshell

So, I realize, dear readers, that I have not been on since dinosaurs roamed the Sahara, but I have a good excuse.

You see, this year has been a big one for me – I went to college! Yay for higher education! While this meant that I abandoned you all for a short time (sorry), I am still going to keep in touch. Here is a review of my crazy rollercoaster 2014. It's been an incredible year, and I'm delighted to share with you.

January was weird. I spent New Year's with a male who turned out to not be all that great. It was a strange month.

"I don't know about you ... but I'm feelin' TWENTY-TWO!" That's right, friendlies. I had a day of birth. I became 2 x 11, because I am on the Autism spectrum, and number patterns are freaky awesome. Also, a blurb about my blog appeared in print in GRIT, and I about peed my pants showing everyone at every Tractor Supply Co. my picture in the magazine.

I also lost my grandfather in February – the one who taught me to fish, shoot squirrels out the window, and no matter what, "Well, these things happen. I love you anyways. When are you coming up to make jerky?"

I started working a LOT during March. I got promoted to director of promotions at the holistic pet nutrition center! Woohoo!
