It’s nearly Christmas and it’s that time of year again. As I prepare to welcome 2014, I can only be so eager to see 2013 go. 2013 was not such a good year. Our country has gone through war, earthquakes, flood, and the biggest storm in history. Personally, ah well, I had a few bumps, but at least nothing that saw me printing yard signs. But 2013 had its silver linings too. I got a new car, we have a swell place, and I leveled up a year at work. So although I eagerly await to welcome 2014, I could say that there was also some good to 2013.
