Celebrating 2014

by - January 01, 2014

I wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on this past year. It’s been quite the eventful one!

I completed my Master of Arts in Media Communications. It was a bit of a challenge since I hadn’t taken classes in a while, but I think I really did myself proud finishing with a 3.91 GPA.

To complete the program I had to undertake a research project that included primary research, which I hadn’t done before. It turned out to be one of the most rewarding and fun papers I’ve ever written. And as a bonus, my professor really liked it and handed it out to this year’s students!

Kevin and I decided that we did want to move forward with getting married and starting our lives together. We went ring shopping and booked our wedding date at our local council’s facilities.

We got married on August 13. It was a very small event. My mom flew over from the States and I also had a friend from my school and Kevin had his dad and aunt. We followed the ceremony with a pub lunch (where pretty much everyone ordered fish and chips!) and cupcakes from Lola’s. It was a simple but lovely day, and the happiest of my life.

Then after the wedding was the visa process and once that was completed I tagged along with him to Las Vegas when he had to go for work which was our mini-moon.

Since then we’ve been settling into married life, celebrated our first married Christmas, and I’ve been looking for work.

Now that 2014 is upon us we are hoping I’ll finally find a great job, we’re hoping to move into a larger flat (as between us we have a lot of stuff and combining two small flats into one has proven to be a challenge!), and we’re hoping to finally make it back to the states to celebrate our marriage with friends and family back home!

I hope you all had a great 2013 and have an even better 2014 ahead!

Happy New Year!
