    @CocoBellaF I was definitely planning to torture people and make it my sig photo but I decided against it because pregnancy rage is a real and scary thing. ;)

    January
    - It snowed a lot and I had to sleep at work for 2 nights in a row. I work in the middle of the woods in a nursing home, so we have to be there no matter what. So that sucked.
    - Moved in to our new (old) house. After living for 2 years in a cramped little apartment with a noisy upstairs neighbor, FI (then BF) and I decided to rent a house in the next town over. It's a cool old house. Over 150 years old actually, so there are a lot of problems, but we love it.
    - Had a research literature review on the Effects of Tai Chi on Older Adults with Parkinson's Disease published in the American Journal of Recreational Therapy. It was my first research publication, so that was cool.
    - Had an awesome intern start at work.

    February
    - More snow.
    - Got my assisted living administrator's license so that I could fill in for a friend at work when she went on maternity leave.

    March
    - Friend went on maternity leave, and I covered for her. The next day the state walked in for their annual survey. Talk about high stress!
    - Went to Manchester, NH for a conference. I had never been to New Hampshire before, so that was something new.
    - Stayed overnight at work for 2 nights again due to snow.

    May
    - Celebrated FI's 28th birthday
    - Posted a picture of my mom drinking a margarita on facebook, and one of her guy friends posted, "wow, what a babe!". So that happened and I wish I didn't remember it.
    - Walked in graduation for my Master's degree.
    - Had to fire an employee for the first time. Unfortunately she committed fraud, but it still sucked.
    - Started my last grad school class.

    - Saw all my fam at Thanksgiving
    - My best friend invited us all out for her 30th birthday party. She was sober at the end of the night, and I fell asleep with my head resting on the toilet seat in the hotel room, after 3 hours of puking.
    - Had a 3-day hangover from aforementioned night of partying.
    - Realized I can no longer drink like when I was 21.
