I just deleted a long post containing reasons why 2013 is horrible. It included rants about ICU hospital stays, being unhappy 23.8% of the week, being poor, having no inspiration, having a gut, acne, and a host of other things.
But, no one wants to read about cranky twenty-something problems.
Here are less horrible things that have happened in 2013:
Because Obama won, I have health insurance.
Because of advances in healthcare and science (Yes, right-wing nut jobs, SCIENCE IS GOOD), family members are alive.
Because of my geographic location, it has not snowed in May (I give thanks that I do not live in areas prone to extended winter seasons)
Because of advances in cheap hair dye, I was able to cover the blonde patch I accidentally gave myself when I attempted to highlight my hair blonde by myself.
Because of the internet, I have been able to find cheap flights to sort-of surprise my parents by flying in my brother one weekend.
Because of library funding (Reading is beneficial -ahem-politicians-ahem), I have found some very worldly music I never would have heard otherwise.
Because of Social Media sites, I can be nosy any time I want.
Because of the internet, I was able to find a criminal's alternative name before the state police released it (CISPA is terrible, politicians).
