How I Spent My Summer: 2013

Thivya Nagamuthu asked me how I spent my summer, so I sent her a link to last year’s post. Her positive feedback inspired me to do a similar post this year! I’m starting late (Its may 18 today), so it won’t be as complete as last year. Also I have a full time job, so I don’t think my list will be nearly as varied as last year.

Bunch of crap I collected

Bunch of crap I collected

I didn’t fill out completely from memory – I used my online bank statements and I took a look at the crossed off items on my Wunderlist. This summer was more of a developmental summer for me than a relaxing/fun one. I’m not the same person I was at the beginning of this summer, because of relationships and employment. I say this because my opinions on certain issues have drastically changed, and I feel like I have insight and wisdom that I didn’t have just 4 months prior. High highs and low lows. All things considered, it was a pretty great summer.
