Since I never got a vacation over the holidays, I decided to take a week off from work in January. I was actually supposed to go to Hawaii to meet with my bestie Lara who is living in Australia at the moment, but she couldn’t go. But I kept my vacation and instead went snowboarding with Heather and went to Cleveland with Elizabeth to see Kate. It was a nice short break from work. (And I ended up having the worst week ever when I returned to work, but whatever.) Vacations are great, there were memories made, and time spent with the best people in the world.
This year I had to work the holidays. Being a nurse, you don’t get off. I worked Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Eve. Thankfully my family were able to come to my house for the holidays I had to work, so I could enjoy their company and the food after I got off work!
The holidays this year went by in a blur, the new year was upon me before I had a chance to even think. Work is awful, it takes away the time I usually get to relax with my family during this time. Oh well, next year is a new year. But these holidays were good, my family is amazing and I love them so very much!
Before the holiday season rolled in, I was able to go spend some time in NYC. I went with my good friend Steph and some of my camp friends on two separate occasions. These are the photos that resulted!
2013 has been a crazy year, I quit my first nursing job and found another. I’ve been at my current job for 8 months now. I’ve traveled a bit, to Virginia again, NYC and to camp a few times. Lots of memories have been made, lots of films have been watched, so much tv as well, and even more books.
It’s been a great year, here’s to 2014!
I’ve attempted daily photo projects before. And I’ve kinda made it. (I did it February a couple years ago, it was a short month, not the best photos produced). So I’m going to attempt to do 31 photos, daily photos in January!
My goal is to enjoy it, journal daily, and see what happens. If I like it, can’t get enough of it, I’ll continue it next month… and the month after that that! We’ll see how it goes.
I’m documenting my project on flikr and a tumblr! karenlaws.tumblr.com
Come join my journey!
I went to visit my Ramapo friends on December 7th for a Christmas Sweater Party! Most of us were not wearing sweaters… myself including… but my old college roommates made up for it in decorations and delicious food, and the wonderful company I get to enjoy whenever I get to see them!
This is from November 23rd, the Doctor who 50th anniversary special, and November 28th, Thanksgiving with my family!
For the Doctor Who special, a whole bunch of my camp friends decided to get together for a weekend of celebration and just an excuse to hang out! I haven’t seen some of these people in couple months, or a couple years. It was nice just to hang out and relax with them!
