Well Enthusiasts, we’ve gotten through another year. 2013 was a biggie, for more than one reason. I reached goals I never thought were possible and you’ve been here to see them all. And, in true reflection spirit, I thought we should take a trip down memory lane to the best (and worst) of Teenage Enthusiasm’s 2013.
Two years ago I wrote a post called “Willy Loman Inspired This” (read this post before you read this one) where I stole a note out of the play Death of a Salesman and created a list of things I wanted to do with my life. Since then I have matured. I’m 18 years old now and I have discovered more about myself, figured out a bit more of my future, and I have a bit more insight to how I really want to spend the next 70 years or so. Or at least more than I did when I was 16.
Because of this, I’ve decided to redo my list. To make changes that come with maturing and figuring out that the life you thought you wanted when you were 16 isn’t exactly what you want when you’re 18. This list is a bit longer and a bit more specific, but one thing about me is that I like to make lists. Lists that I can look back to for a reference. So while I am off being an adult for the next oh-so-many years, I can look back at this measly post and see if I am living up to what I expected. So, let’s get started, yeah?
I’m back! I have traipsed the lands of Europe and come back to so many things going on! I was Freshly Pressed and was nominated as a Versatile Blogger.
I was Freshly Pressed last week and I am so grateful. You all seemed to have really positive reactions toward my blogging rules and that was fantastic. I am so thankful for all the great things you guys said. I love having a feeling of community here on the blog, so when you all come and give your opinions and advice, I feel like we’re becoming the community of enthusiasts that I set out to create in the beginning. Thank you for all of the positive comments you sent me (I’ve finally read them all) and I want you all to know that you mean the world to me. You are fantastic!Read More
