In 2013 I turned 35, witnessed my sister Veronica graduate college & my niece Annabelle sing her first solo in her school's winter concert. I also became an aunt again to a tiny little dude named Liam. I went on a zine tour to Chicago (& tabled at Chicago Zine Fest), went on a small solo zine tour to DC (& got the deathly hallows tattooed on me while there), read 11 books, wrote a few zines, wrote a book (which got a mention on avclub), tabled at Brooklyn Zine Fest & tabled at DC Zine Fest, tried my hand at nanny life, got an extensive amount of dental work done, took a roadtrip to Connecticut with my sister Jennifer, my niece Lily & a dog. I also celebrated my three years sober milestone (which gave me the strength & experience to be a support system for my brother who fought really hard & got his life back). I celebrated two years with my beardy dude who I went to Los Angeles with for a few days (& spent time with some of my most favorite people) & San Francisco for a week (where I saw my first old growth redwood). I saw Courtney Love twice. I also went to Ladies Rock Camp, learned to play drums, formed a band & played a show. I also finished two more semesters of college!
This year was incredible & I look forward to 2014.
