I feel like it’s right to look back at 2013 and everything that came with it. You may not know this, but Kate the (Almost) Great has been around since August 2012, although I wrote maybe 10-15 posts from August 2012 – May 2013. (I’ll celebrate my “1st” blogiversary in May.) Today I’m not going to talk about my year of blogging, though I might include posts I’ve written. I’m going to talk about the biggest moments of 2013 to me.
I finished up my first time having my infusions and headed back to Nashville to start student teaching. At the beginning of the month, I reflected ahead about my year and everything that’s about to happen.
I got sick (a lot), planned and enacted 2/3 of the really huge project that stood between me and my teaching license. At the end of the month, I finished my first student teaching placement, which solidified that I wanted to go into urban education.
I went to Boston for spring break – here is my picture recap of my break – and then started my second student teaching placement. I also completed the final 1/3 of the huge project, which included writing around 50 pages.
April moved at break-neck speed. Second student teaching placement, Vanderbilt’s annual Rites of Spring music festival, Military Ball, and I got my job! There was also the Boston bombing, which struck home because of how close it was to my parents.

I graduated from Vanderbilt and went to Boston for the summer. This is also whenever I started to blog all the time (which is why I’ll consider the beginning of May my blogiversary).
My 22nd birthday, including a tour of Fenway and a trip to a Sox game. My parents’ 25th anniversary and plenty of trips to the Maine woods.

My next round of infusions and I moved to Nashville full time! This was HUGE for me. Work also started at the end of the month.
I started teaching full-time, traveled to Atlanta (to visit the boyfriend for his birthday). Teaching started taking up my entire life.
Lots of stress from work but nothing exciting otherwise.

My health started going downhill and I was consumed by work. I went back to Boston for Thanksgiving.
My health was AWFUL, the first semester of school ended, I changed my hair, and I headed back to Boston for Christmas. Oh, and the tree fell on me.
So that’s 2013, folks! I can’t wait to see what 2014 holds for me. Less than 24 hours until a new year!
