Starting the (New) New Year

Yesterday marked 1 year since our cat’s death. My Grandma passed away this spring and about a week after her memorial, my incredible boss Kim lost his battle with cancer. The past 12 months have been one of the saddest periods of my life.

I don’t know how to deal with death, never have. But I’m trying to get back into the swing of things ‘cos I’m grateful to be alive and I want to be happy. July has been a healthy starting point. I started spending time with friends again, calling my mom more, cooking healthy meals, and listening to a lot of the Wu-Tang Clan. Dean and I finally went on our first date of 2013 (we saw This is the End– where my only tears were from laughing so much). I spent last Saturday drinking free beer and listening to some of my favorite bands. This is a general update but also sort of a pep talk to myself. For me, the happy half of 2013 starts this month. My new goals are: stay positive, get shit organized, keep busy with personal projects, and be as kind as possible- all the time. I promise whatever I post next won’t be such a bummer.

Anyway, I hope everyone else is well and we all have the best rest of summer. :)
