November Gratitude List 2013

Let's cheers to this.

As I write up my November gratitude list, I'd like to reflect on the past year as a whole since the year is now drawing to a close. This has been the best year of my life. I've held a steady job and made the most income ever. I did freelance writing work, catering and event work for NYC's fashion week. I lived on my own in Harlem for the first half of the year and for the second half I've lived in Bushwick. I've had an awesome girlfriend for 3/4 of the year. I was able to see my family a few times and keep our connection strong. I played drums for two rock bands, gigged around New York City and even sang lead vocals on a few tracks. I worked with Greg Sims on my life coals. Come mid December, I will have earned my yoga teacher certification and be on track to starting a new career. 2013 has been an awesome year.
