So 2013, what a year.

After the awesomeness of 2012, I really didn't have much hope for 2013. It would never be as good as 2012. How wrong I was.
Start of the year saw me meet my first instagrammer, Tom, or better known as foxesandcats. The internet is a wonderful place, (we all know this), and I am so glad to call this bonkers guy one of my best friends.
Being in the same room as Joss Whedon. After queuing outside the apple store in London for 12hours, being in the front row listening to him speak....words cannot describe the feeling.
Austin. How can I even begin to sum up that?! It was perfect, I felt at home, so many adventures, good food, perfect company, too many laughs, late nights, deep meaningful chats with Maggie, getting into fights over a picnic table, Shelby giving a waiter my phone number.....or I guess I could just say 'USA, USA!!' -stupid large family in rubber rings.
Meeting David. I will always be thankful for my friend Claire making me do something stupid and not me. He is perfect. I know that's easy to say, but he is. He's beardy, cute, knows crazy amounts about comicbooks, is so talented and artistic. He hasn't really watched much Doctor Who, but it's ok, I still love him.
Being back at Glastonbury. That field. That place, the music, the energy. It's just breathtaking.
The conventions I have been to this year, were perfect. Meeting Paul McGann- he gives the best kisses and hugs. Meeting Jenna Coleman, and seeing Billie Piper again. And of course Hallowhedon 5. Best con of the whole year. All my con friends in one place. Plus highlight was getting Brad Bell back to Joey's hotel room and all playing pop up pirate.
2013 was super, let's see what 2014 has in store!
