1: Number of Emergency Room visits
So damn close to making it another year hospital free. Alas, no. But it could have been a lot worse.

3: Number of pets
Grateful for no losses.

1: Major appliance purchased
Oh the joys of home ownership. Thankfully it was January when my fridge died so I could keep some stuff in a cooler on the back porch. Sometimes ya just gotta be classy like that.

2: Number of times my car was towed
What? You don’t have to have your car towed when you get a flat? Clearly you don’t own a car that doesn’t hold a spare tire. If you have bad luck with tires as I do, I don’t recommend this. But I do recommend a AAA membership.

0: Times I thought I had my life figured out

Countless: Laughs, cries, conversations, and tender moments with remarkable friends, old and new.


About Roya

I live in Pittsburgh and work in non-profit marketing. I moved here in 2001 for graduate school at Carnegie Mellon University. I had no idea that I'd end up making this most-livable city my home for more than a decade. I love to travel. It's without a doubt my favorite thing to do. I want to see the world. I went through a phase in college where I wanted to be a documentary photographer but it was so unrealistic and impractical that I stuck with my teaching degree. (SIDE NOTE: I'm not a teacher. Go figure.) I'd love to say that I'm not materialistic but I like pretty things. And I like spending money on said pretty things. Retail therapy followed by buyer's remorse and returns is a constant cycle in my life. I'm okay with that. I'm very fortunate to have a wonderful family. They are loud, ridiculous and the kindest people you'll ever know. My friends are my family by choice and without them, I honestly don't know where I'd be.
