2013 was a wild race to the finish. Between bi-costal work obligations, holidays on the East coast paired with signing a new lease on the West coast and embarking on a 2-year graduate level screenwriting program (Writers Bootcamp), there was a noticeable lack of that relaxing holiday spirit filled with 1-month-a-year sweaters and ottomans by the fire.

I indulged in all the local food and drink I could get my hands off and soaked up as much local color as possible. Jess and I even got tattoos in Austin! I haven't reflected enough on the experience to put some cogent thoughts together yet. Or maybe I have and it's just the heart rate talking. Speaking of:
