2017 by the numbers

2017, the year of our Lord. (The year that I finally got curious, Googled, and learned that "the year of our Lord" is an appropriate addendum to any year that's happened after the birth of Christ. So, applicable to most of the events that I typically talk about.)

Age: 23 - 24

Total number of roommates: 5 (four over the course of my first residence, one after my move)
Major life events: 3 (by my count - it depends on what you qualify as a “major life event”)
Times I cried (that I can remember): 5 (didn't rewatch Interstellar as much this year)
Jobs: 1

Frisbee games I played: 6
Frisbee games my team won (out of 7 total): 2
Approximate miles I ran (outside of frisbee): 316 (a flawed estimate, since I started using my current fitness tracker around March, so January - February are a mystery)

10Ks I signed up for and then willingly slept through: 1

What a year. What a year! And that's not even to mention the neverending dumpster fire that is the state of the world. (At least we have Beyonce's twins.) I know very little about what 2018 holds for me, but I do know that I'll be taking a trip down the West coast, I'm planning to finally get a dog, and I'm finally installing curtains in my room so my light-sensitive self can sleep in on the weekends.

2018. Year of not involuntarily waking up at 9 no matter how badly I want to stay asleep. It's gonna be a good one.
