2013: A Year, Old and New

As the first month of 2014 comes to a close, I decided to take a look back at my year in 2013 and look ahead to what I want to accomplish as this new year continues. Seeing how many things happen in a year helps remind you of the life that's fleeting, along with helping remember the amazing time that God's given you in such a short time.

My 2013

1. Went on College Life Retreat
2. Got back into Chi Omega.
3. Changed my major!
4. Truly grew in my faith and learned what it meant to be a true follower of Christ.
5. Checked a lot of things off my 101 Lists.
6. Started my Etsy shop for my paddle keychains.
7. Enjoyed a family weekend in Chicago.
8. Finally, truly, experienced being in college.
9. Took a road trip to LA.
10. Had a girls' weekend in Las Vegas.
11. Experienced a new culture and enjoyed new adventures in Jamaica.
12. Grew my mediation and conflict-resolution skills.
13. Made the decision to get baptized.
