Top 13 Moments of 2013

It’s hard to believe that 2013 is coming to an end already. For myself, 2013 was a year of mixed emotions- there were many high points but also many low points.

In the beginning of the year, I entered my last semester of college as I was preparing to transfer to a university. As spring approached, I was planning my move to Kelowna for school. During the summer, I got news that I would be able to stay in Vancouver for school and also got my first car. Fall was spent at a new university and winter marked the first time my group of high school friends all got together since graduating.

There were some changes in my life and also many “firsts”, but the most important thing I realized in 2013 was the hardship of being an adult.

Here are my top 13 moments of 2013:
