This year I...

Moved to a new city...


This past March we had this crazy idea to trade our small rural town in GA for the massive city of Houston, TX. It wasn't quite what we expected but it's definitely been an adventure to say the least.

Graduated College...

I don't really have a picture of this but I finally pried my Bachelor's degree out of the cold dead hands of my school back in Jacksonville. It feels good...it feels reallllyyyy good.

Got a new job...


Landed my first semi-respectable job at a Hilton Hotel. It's not the greatest, but it's allowed me to meet some really cool people and for that, I am grateful.

Bought another car...


Since the public transportation system is semi-life threatening here in Houston, we decided to get another car - enter the MeMe Mobile, a whopping 1,000 pounds of pure industrial German engineering.

Explored new cities...


Took a road trip and explored the Austin city streets then took a detour to Waco and visited secretly stalked Joannah Gaines at her store Magnolia Market.

Ate ribs the size of my arm...


They said everything is bigger in Texas, that is especially true at Black's BBQ in Austin.

This year has been full of new experiences and challenges with a few regrets thrown in. Most importantly, I am more aware of what I want out of life and what makes me happy and I intend to seek out and surround myself with those things come the new year.

Next year I (We)...

-Will hopefully find a place to call home. I've never really liked or related to where I live, so this year I am hoping to do some traveling and hopefully discover a place where I feel at home.
-Become semi-fluent in German.
-Read more. I used to read all the time, then I went to college and all the fun got sucked out of it.
-Find a career that I'm passionate about

I really appreciate all of you taking the time to read and comment on my little corner of the internet and I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Year!
