You’re welcome. I’ve enjoyed reading your blog also :)
2013 was a great year. it had a great and fast promising start and ended with a steady & calm night. I know this a bit late as i should have written this perhaps 30 days ago, but guess what? I was busy living my life starting 2014 the way I saw it fit. 2013 was a year of growth.
My relationships with various members of my social circles were deeply reviewed this year.
I lost a dear friend whom I considered to be my sister. I honestly have no idea where it went wrong, but things are for the best. No sour notes on my end as I see us just growing apart each and every day.
I renewed 3 friendships that I had thought were at their stale state and were close to death. I was really glad that my friendships with Alex, Selene, and Kim got back on solid ground. I had thought that my bridges with them were shaky, but when things got tough, these 3 are always there with open arms, no judgements and ill wills. I don’t have to check with their schedules to have a good conversation. I can just simply write them an email. We’re all adults now & we can’t always drop everything for coffee and a long talk.
I solidified my relationships with my family also. For the 1st time in a long time, I actually had a great time during xmas eve with my family. There were great foods, lots of laughing, and obviously singing. I didn’t even really care about the presents this year.
Its been more than a year since I’ve been seeing the runner and it didn’t dawn on me that I was in such denial of my feelings towards him until his marathon. It was the worst ever. I wish it happened on a different day, but it didn’t. As much as my friends tease me about how much I like him, I never really acknowledged my emotions until that day. Days/weeks before the big day, I was frantically searching for a sweatshirt/hoodie so i can keep warm during the race. The hoodie became really important for some reason. Kim pointed out “he must be really special to [me] if you’re going all this trouble for a sweatshirt” and i shrugged it off. I hate to admit it, but yes he is really specially to me. He is dedicated to his work and his hobby and his mom. I love that.
There aren’t much of traveling done during 2013 as I was too busy with other things in my life. I have discovered more parts of California and mostly San Francisco as the year have gone on.
Finally cooked our mangalitsa pork chops from the woolly mangalitsa #pigs in #davis. Definitely partaking the farm to fork movement here in #Sacramento. #neverhadweeverhadsuchamazingpork #wellfed #icookformymuffin (at Old Sacramento)
