The question that everyone keeps asking me, “Did you get chose in 2013?” 

My answer: Sorta. Kinda. Not really.
Let me explain. I did #getchose. I was in a quasi-relationship for a few months this summer. It promptly fell apart. I saw the signs and chose to ignore them. But I learned a lot. First and foremost, the relationship raised more questions than answers. Second, I didn’t feel at peace with this person; that made me realize that the most important thing I want is comfort and being able to relax into and with someone. Third, I realized that physical intimacy is important to me, very important. As I told someone, sex drives and cuddling notions must be equally yoked. 
What’s most important was that I got chose for a bunch of things in my professional and volunteer life. I also got chose for surgery. Yay for the retinal detachment which put me on bed rest for weeks and ruined my semester. 
2013 was a year of growth and changes, of embracing the new things and figuring out what I want. 
I’m thankful for that, and I am ready for 2014.
