2017 In Bullet Points

December 24, 2017

2017 summed up in one bullet list of Important Events!


  • Took my first solo cross-country trip, plane flights and all, to see my best friend. Complete with very-nearly-missing a flight.
  • Acquired a baby sister by nefarious means. Already feels like she’s been here forever!
  • Got a pixie cut for the first time.
  • Won my first short-story contest in June.
  • Acquired my driver’s license: so I could drive to the library.
  • Went to a college summer program.
  • Spent eight months working a part-time job at an animal shelter, the longest stretch yet, and learned both how to deal with hyper dogs and with the human limits of non-sleeping.
  • Started learning to play the ukulele.
  • Sent out query letters for my manuscript and received the corresponding number of rejections.
  • My oldest pet, Sunflash the Cockatiel, died.
  • Drew three different full-page drawings I actually like.
  • Got accepted into college! (Also promptly lost the acceptance letter – my ability to lose anything and everything remains the running gag of my life – and then found it again.)
  • Learned to crochet.
  • Lost Nanowrimo for the first time ever.
  • Reviewed 173 books.
  • Continued to utterly fail at Sleeping and other such normal human things.
