I don’t really have anything of substance to contribute about New Year’s Eve 2014 in Queenstown, other than the fact that I had a really good time at the Irish bars with my Irish friends and we got to celebrate 18 hours before anyone else in Virginia Beach. Nevertheless, I would like to take the time now to reflect on how not awesome 2013 was except for one thing: for the first time ever, I finally made my new year’s resolution become a reality. I promised myself that at some point last year, I would make it to New Zealand, and I did it! I am so proud of myself for gathering the courage to embark on this incredible journey and without the support and love from everyone back home, I would have never met three of my new favorite people pictured here. This is Emily, Evan, me and Catherine at Harry’s the night before NYE. Cheers! And thumbs up, apparently… 2014 already rocks!
