Journal writing project: 2013: A year to remember

As we are now settling into 2014 let’s take a glimpse back at some events that occurred in 2013.

To start off the year, on January 4, 2013, President Barack Obama was officially declared by Congress, the winner of the 2012 election. Janurary 6 marks the end of the 113 day lockout of The National Hockey league. The 85th academy awards were held on January 10 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater. This years best pictures nominees included Life of Pi, Argo, Lincoln and Beast of The Southern Wild. Jorge Bergoglio, who takes the name Pope Francis, becomes the first Latin American Pope. February 3, after a 34 minute delay in the game’s second half caused by a power outage, the Baltimore Ravens defeat the San Francisco 49’ers Super Bowl XLVII by a score of 34 – 3. On April 5, 2013, two pressure cooker bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon killing three people and injuring an estimated 264 people. July 22, 2013, Kate Middleton gave birth to Prince George Alexander Louis. December 5, 2013, the death of the universal hero, Nelson Mandela.

2013 can also be considered the year the social media site, Twitter rises to be the most popular network and of course you can’t tweet without some new technology from Apple. The iPhone 5c and 5s were released making it very difficult to choose which one you should buy next. You could also say that it was the year “twerking” was created and some might even hope to leave it in 2013. I don’t think I need to go into detail about Miley Cyrus and her performance either and to the Justin Bieber fans, I hate to say that 2013 might just mark the end of his career.
