Cubic Birthdays are something experienced so rarely; the last time was 19 years ago when I turned 8 (2^3), and won't experience again for another 37 years, "when I'm 64" (4^3), and if I'm lucky enough, 61 years after that will give me 125 (5^3) years.
(Note: Isn't it cool how the difference between each of these cubed numbers is prime?)
I just want to keep this blog entry short and sweet -- this past year at 26 (nothing too special; just a multiple of 13) held so many fun memories, comprised of a few major "firsts:"
- First year contributing to the Horrorthon blog
- First trip out of the country to El Salvador
- First time to the southwest (Albuquerque, NM) -- also my first time traveling alone, with the exception of road trips from the SF Bay Area to Ukiah to visit my parents.
- Second year attending San Francisco's Zombie Prom
|I was proud of this pina I acquired in Suchitoto.|
|1 of 2 proms we attended that year -- this was for my school; the second...|
|... Zombie Prom! It's gonna be hard to top the KISS zombies.|
|One achievement I'm proud of was supporting the 2011 graduates on their trip to Disneyland and Universal Studios (not JUST 'cause I got to go with them...)|
|My favorite photo of 2011 -- and it's spectacular coming from my archaic phone. I got the opportunity to participate in the SF Exploratorium's Teacher Institute and got to see this every morning.|
