I did a sort of re-cap of the past year a few days ago on Instagram, only to realize that I had consigned the rest of 2013 to oblivion. I mean, at the particular moment that I tapped "share" on Instagram, all that I had managed to associate with 2013 was New York, my graduation, and dressing up my dog in various outfits. Kind of stale, isn't it (even though Mulan's outfits were probably one of the more significant happenings in 2013)? It's difficult to look back on the past 365 days and remember every second of every day, but for the sake of the future Alyssa's that plan on remembering what on earth happened in the year 2013, here's a quick summary: I spent my 21st birthday in New York in great company, attended the seemingly magical spectacle that was NYFW, cut my bangs (which I quickly regretted), met bloggers/BFFs IRL, graduated with a general science degree, became employed (twice), visited Toronto and Montreal, attended my first music festival with Dani, spent a day being a brand ambassador for Topshop Canada, ditched my ombre for blonde, and actually started using my Moleskine. Anyway, seeing that I leave for Asia in less than two weeks, I can only imagine that 2014 will be another great three hundred and sixty five days. Happy New Year, everyone!

PS: As always, a warm thank you and virtual high five to everyone who reads/comments on this blog. Without you, there'd be no this.
