There’s plenty to be grateful, but I’ll just hit the top 10
#5 – Married to someone who works out.
I seriously would be an horrible shape were it not for Julie. My wife works out 4-5x a week, and is an inspiration to keep in good health and shape. If it weren’t for her, I’d be more “Bear” than “Otter” (evidently lingo in the metro-sexual communities…)
#4 – Traveling more than ever
It’s a personal goal to see new place every year. This year: Turkey! What a great country!
#3 – Family and friends near and far.
I swear, I’ve seen more family, both in NYC, Chicago and afar, this year than ever before.
#2 – Continuing to write, starting to podcast
Fun things I’ve written this year: ghost stories, blog posts, twitter feeds, listener feedback. It’s a start. My goal is to write/publish a series of short stories. I’ve never done sound recording, and I’m eager to experiment with it. Episodes to come out in 2014!!!
#5 – Health
Rocky year, all in all, but I came through better than ever. At age 31 I bench more than before, lift more than ever, and have a positive POV to dramatically improve my cardio next year. It’s going to be…awesome.
