It really made me want to look back at this year and try to recollect what I've been up to. So here goes haha, if you are not interested you may skip this~
So my year 2013 included a lot of things. Celebrated New Year with my American host family. Wore a glittery hat that left glitter everywhere in my hair. Had a lot of cheese and crackers and tried oisters. Visited friends in the US and felt like I was dreaming a lot. Made friends with people I might never meet again. Spilled coffee on myself. Watched my computer magically recover from being spilled coffee in. Went to Idaho and swam in a lake. Build sand-forts that looked like toes. Got tanned for possibly the first time in my life. Got the yellow belt in karate. Packed all my things and left behind other things to return to Denmark and my family. Found weird things under my bed in the process of packing. Sent a lot of mail. Missed my host family. Got angry with them. Felt disappointed and forgotten. Moved out of my parents home. Moved in with my cousin. Went bed-hunting. Painted walls white. Started in University. Made new friends. Was stressed and happy and confused at the same time, and a lot. Neglected some things to focus on other things. Got drunk. Had an accident on my bike and broke two of my teeth. Had them fixed by my dentist. Experienced Berlin with my family. Watched my little sister move out as well to go live in the opposite end of the country. Visited my friend in Viborg. Missed my old friends. Pumped a lot of air into my constantly flat bike-tires. Somehow got a boyfriend. Tried to not be awkward with him and might have succeeded thus far. Snuck out of his apartment at 4:20 in the morning, to his knowledge, because his bed was too small and neither of us could sleep. Read a lot of school books but only a single one for pleasure. Started watching Vampire Diaries with my sister. Got a job (hopefully). Had free sushi because my cousin is awesome. Worried a lot about sick family members. Had Christmas with my family and tired grandmother and wished that December could have been longer. Prepared to work on New Year's Eve. Stressed over exams and did, of course, not finish the first one until last notice. Failed to get my own insurance for way too long. Started to realize how much money I use on food. Doodled a little. Spent nights online chatting with people and went to bed early many days as well. Got a lot of kitchen instruments. Was locked out of my apartment and had to have a professional come and change our lock in the middle of the night. Noticed once again how little of a romantic I am. Wondered if I focus on the wrong things. Killed my orchid, I'm afraid. Drank more coffee than ever, but tried not to spill it in my computer again. Didn't do Christmas cards but got all my presents done in time. Was awed at the fact that I have amazing friends all over the world. Taught my phone how to spell 'haha'. Payed my own phone bill. Got a traveler's card. Missed my friend in Sweden. Longed to travel back to California, wished to go to Scotland and planned to travel to Sweden. Was tricked by the Danish weather. Had my credit card denied because I didn't have enough money on it to pay for dinner. Had the worst hangovers I have ever experienced but still managed to shop computers with my dad. Was told that my parents had sold our childhood home and watched photos of the new apartment they got in the city. Was mistaken for a guy and then subsequently complemented on my natural-looking rack during a Halloween celebration. Laughed. Wrote way too much here.
Hoped she didn't bother you by writing this and wished everyone a Happy New Year!
Good luck in 2014! I will be spending New Years with my sister, serving 12 guys at a private party (wow that sounds so wrong haha) and enjoying the fireworks I missed in California
