2013 Year in Review

As the end of each year encroaches, I often get the feeling that time flew and not much has happened (life and outfits-wise). When thinking about writing this reflection post, I remembered all the exciting moments and adventures!

Heart & soul:
Reached out for support from my classmates, shared my Mom's story
Felt truly happy about my life and escaped the cycle of self-deprecation
Found my niche with my swole ladies - wine-ing, dining, cooking, squatting
Norcal trip with my family

The best way to learn is to be curious:
Research/internship with Pediatric Plastic Surgery
Taught anatomy to art students, learned to sketch the human body from them
Read 14 books
40% on the way to MD

Experience allllll the things:
New York Fashion Week
Skydiving with JJ
Ran my first 5k and started lifting weights and rock climbing
A cappella performance of Disney medley
Lollapalooza, Dayglow, first real concert (Bruno Mars x Ellie Goulding), countless adventures in Pittsburgh

The Great Outdoors:
Class V white water rafting and camping x 2
Ski trip (where I learned how to ski)
Hikes: Hocking Hills x 2, Potato Chip Rock in San Diego

Between all the snow and early nightfall, scrubs/white coat/workout days, and general laziness, the actual outfit compilation would look a lot like my knee-length parka, jeans, and snow boots on repeat. In fact, it might be a fun project to take a picture every single day of what I'm really wearing in 2014 for a little shocker :)

This picture sums up one of my main focuses of 2014: do it now, because later turns into never. I hope tonight as you're reflecting on 2013 and celebrating NYE with friends or family, you take a moment to be proud of how much you have grown in 365 days. We don't need a new year to reset our motivation to chase after our dreams and desires - adventure is out there, put on a good pair of shoes and run after it!

P.S. Did I make my 2013 Resolutions happen? Revisit them with me for a fun comparison.

Love all the pics! And thanks for posting this Angie! I also often feel like all we do in med school is study study study but now that I look back, we HAVE had many exciting adventures this year! Here's to an even better 2014! :)

Oh, I think we all feel that way as each year comes to a close. But what a beautiful and exhilirating year for you, Angie!

I've admired your strength in sharing your mom's story and am so inspired by why you're pursuing medical studies. Props to you for almost being halfway done!

Also, I've always dreamed of skydiving! That's simply amazing. You know how I feel about running too (: So glad that you've started! I'll be cheering you on! And Hocking hills is seriously so gorgeous and perfect for hikes.

That photo is completely right, and I always keep that in mind. By the way, just wanted to let you know that I applied to WashU and actually now am seriously considering the humanities. Now the wait begins haha. Thanks again for all your advice and help!

An A to Z guide on survival gardening that is easy to read and a joy to put into practice, full of photos, diagrams and step by step advice.

Even a kid can do this and, in fact, I encourage you to let the little ones handle it, to teach them not just about self-reliance but also about how Mother Nature works.

Sometimes you may experience buzzing or whistling noise in your ears that may last for 24 hours a day. It may be constant without any break. This is not external source of noise, but rather due to muscle contractions near the ear, changes in the ear canal, or blood flow (vascular) problems. Sonus Complete pills terminate your tinnitus.
