2013 In Review

Categories: Year in Review

Putting together this entry made me realize, again, that I really should post more. Or at least have a private document somewhere to keep track of this stuff.

Also, I started writing this in TextEdit, but it hung indefinitely. I blame iCloud. Seriously, how is it ever excusable that a text editor / word processor freeze indefinitely? At least it recovered the document after I killed it.

Travel and events:

My plan this year was to save my vacation time for a big trip in the fall. I guess that worked out, just not as expected.

  • February: Went to Gottacon. It was awesome.

  • May: VanCAF.

  • June: Raine got married!

  • June: Day trip to Victoria. Spent most of my time in transit (buses, ferries) than in Victoria. It was nevertheless awesome.

  • June, later: Went up to Prince George for a baptism.

  • Late July: Mission Folk Fest. First time going. Three days of sun and music.

  • Late August: Calgary for my sister’s wedding. Huzzah!

  • October: Went to one last VCon.

  • November: Visited the ruined monastery at Glendalough

  • December: Visited Northern Ireland and Giant’s Causeway.


I probably went to a few more, but this is all I can remember.

  • “Now You See Me”.

  • “Rifftrax Live: Starship Troopers”.

  • “Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special”.

  • “Hobbit 2”.


  • Cirque du Soleil, “Amaluna”.

  • Attended a live production of “Les Miserables”.

  • Bard on the Beach. I forget which play, sadly. :(

  • Plumes Ensemble at Raw Canvas.

  • “Avenue Q”.

  • “Rent”.

  • “Critical Hit”, several times. I even got to participate once!

  • Deltron 3030.


  • I finally went to Wreck Beach!

  • I finally did the Grouse Grind!

  • I went to the best overnight Minecraft LAN party of all time — OF ALL TIME.

  • I moved to Ireland!
