2016 Year in Review

2016 was painful. At times, beautiful. Often, both. I took my first science classes and fell in love. I ran the Green Narrows. I changed careers.

Downtown

I spent a lot of time downtown. Spoke at PechaKucha (see the video). Served on TVCC’s board, and CWLI’s marketing committee. Ran my business. Went to a bunch of events.

Whitewater

A number of new rivers, not the least of which was the Green (see the video of my first run).

Hiking

I went to Vegas, Red Rocks, Zion National Park, Valley of Fire and even hiked around Chattanooga a little.

Tutoring

I got to tutor this awesome kid in school. I taught him (with the help of many others) to kayak, to drive, to get good grades, and to workout. It’s so cool to see him grow up, one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.

What else…

Dating… well, I went to therapy the last two or three months of the year to try to figure out how to get out of this pattern I’m in, to learn to communicate more effectively, etc… I’m not sure if I made any progress, but I tried.

I see a lot of change in my future. It’s scary. It hurts. It’s wonderful. It’s lonely. It’s time.

It’s good to be alive another year.
