Looking Ahead!

Hey guys! Time really does fly, doesn’t it? It literally feels like Thanksgiving was a few days ago, and now look where we’re at, a day before Christmas Eve? This is insane! I’m not entirely ready to let this year go. This has possibly got to be one of the most productive years of my entire life. Seriously, there’s milestones everywhere you look. Whether it was learning that I can actually get up in front of people and read without sounding really annoying, (my first poetry slam!), the fact that my obsessive writing abilities can actually get me places, or, possibly, sharing my love of art and culture with you guys! You’ve made this year epic, and I can’t thank you enough for it!

Okay, I’m done rambling. Time to get down to the more interesting stuff. With STAMP, and everything else going on, life’s been chaotic, to say the least. I guess becoming an intern can only add to the mix? That’s right, you’re looking at PMA’s newest intern! This wouldn’t be possible without such an interest in STAMP, so go you guys for being epic! We’re planning a bunch of really awesome things for the next upcoming months, but we need your feedback for what’s in and what’s not (see? even on blogs I’m still the least idealistic teenager ever), so we can make everything completely awesome. Again, what a year it’s been. I cannot wait to see what happens next!

What were your favorite parts of this year? What’re you looking forward to next year? Mine has to be all hands down both being able to help with the process of STAMP, and, of course, being able to make massive achievements with my writing. Leave a comment letting me know what awesome things you did this year, and what you can’t wait to come. It’d be cool to know what you like about the PMA, and/or even just what you’re interested in in general! I’d love to get a sense from STAMP Pass holders about what you liked or what you’d want to see. I’ll give some shout outs in my next post! Until next time, have an awesome holiday, and see you in 2014!
