2013 Will Likely be an Interesting Year for Me

This blog is kind of a spur of the moment thing, just felt like sharing a bit of things with people that notice this and read it.

So 2013 kind of started on a sour note already with a death in the family over my break from college, an aunt and the last member on my dad's side of the family in my immediate family. It's strange to think that my dad, uncle and aunt, people that I've known all my life and lived with for nearly as long are gone now, and it's sad to think that they won't see me graduate from college in May, something that all of them were looking forward to since I'm one of the first people in my family to go to college, let alone graduate.

Now that it's just my mother and I, we're about to move away from the home we've lived in for nearly 13 years now, but it's likely for the best. There's nothing left for either of us in the town we're living in now, so we're hoping for better and brighter things wherever we decide to move to. It will also get me closer to where I'm hoping to get a job once I graduate so that's another plus.

Though I'm really glad to nearly be done with college, it's sad to leave behind one of the best learning experiences I've had my entire life, being a Resident Assistant. If you had asked me if I thought I would be an RA when I was starting college, I would have likely laughed in your face but here I am. It has really helped me out a lot with coming out of my shell and I sincerely enjoy helping the people in my residence halls whenever I can. I've met a lot of really cool people and have learned a lot with this job, and hope that the things I learn help me to be a better person in general.

Finally, PAX East is just under two months away and both my best friend and I will be going this year. It will be the first time I've really been out of state on my own and the first time I'll be flying on a plane which is kind of exciting and very terrifying at the same time (I'm deathly afraid of heights) but I hope tackling that fear will really pay off. I hope to see a lot of you duders there and have a great time in Boston and hanging out with a lot of people that share the same passion I have with one of our favorite hobbies.

Thanks for reading.
