In 2013 I didn’t read all of Anne Carson, but I did read Autobiography of Red (again), Red Doc>, Nox, If Not, Winter, Men in the Off Hours, and started An Oresteia. I found that I couldn’t read one right after the other, that some reflection time was necessary, so this is a project I’ll continue in 2014.
In 2013 I got better at saying “no.”
In 2013 I figured out what I’m doing with my hair. It looks good.

In 2013 I continued to obsess over things I can’t change, but have gotten better at finding the people who could help me change those things.
