Chili Pepper Challenge: Happy New Year!

One of my 2013 resolutions was to take more risks. Naturally, I had to take a ridiculous (and painful) risk to round out the year and start 2014 right. After seeing Rhett & Link eat the infamous ghost pepper, I came to the conclusion that stuffing my face with a jalapeño on camera and shrieking for your entertainment would be the wisest course of action. But I didn’t go at it alone! A brave There’s a Wall There joined me for the occasion and got much farther into the challenge than I ever could (with the help of some ice cream).

2013 was a great year. I:

Momento from Mexico: mini trajinera (canoe) bearing my name!
  • made many, many new friends.
  • traveled by air alone for the first time.
  • visited Mexico!
  • visited the west coast for the first time.
  • attended SDCC for the first time.
  • spoke on a panel at a convention for the first time.
  • attended the most conventions in one year than I ever have before.
  • was on TV and Huffington Post Live!
  • hit an incredible 4,400 subscribers on YouTube.
  • published a video that reached 44,000+ views on YouTube and 129,000+ notes on Tumblr.
  • took a class on comics and gender, just for fun.
  • revamped my site– look at all the pretty colors!

In 2014, I want to:

  • reach 10,000 subscribers on YouTube.
  • be a better friend (keep in touch more, listen more, etc.).
  • be more tolerant of opinions that don’t match my own.
  • tackle more real world issues in the real world, rather than just advocating for them online.

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year, and here’s to another 365 days filled with good comics, good people and good fun!
