For me, 2013 was the year I became a successful business owner… after a friend lent me a large sum of money so that I could make rent. It was the year I was a stay-at-home dad, working from home and taking long walks with Charlie. I fly fished for the first time and faced my demons on the edge of a cliff. And then missed my flight home, thanks to LA traffic. I also tried Netflix for the first time and watched everything. And briefly tried online dating – before deleting all of my accounts. I sent a girl flowers to express how I felt. I went backpacking into a thunderstorm. I walked home from Oktoberfest through a golf course in Leavenworth at 2am. Twice. I was offered my dream job. And it was the year I found out my best friend will be moving to LA.
