2014 - In Hindsight

Monday, December 29, 2014

This year seems to have gone by even faster than the last one. I remember when I was younger I'd hear older people say that all the time but I never believed it would happen to me. It has sadly. It has.

Even though it seems to have whizzed by, this year was full of new experiences, first times, old traditions, and new friends. Here are some of the highlights.

  • We had a New Year's Eve get together at our new place and rang in the new year with friends and a fire pit. 
  • John and I celebrated our one year anniversary.
  • I had my one year work anniversary. 
  • I tried a new exercise - lyra. 
  • I finally stuck with and USED my planner for an entire year. I think I'm hooked. 
  • I volunteered for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. 
  • I found a new idol - her name is Martha Stewart.
  • I've started becoming more aware of current events and how biases and prejudices shape a lot of our future. 

As for my fun goals for the year - I didn't even do half of them but the ones I did do were pretty awesome.

This year was seriously great. I love going back and looking at all the things I've done. It kind of puts things into perspective. The year may have felt like it went by in a flash but I got a lot of things done and am in a good place. I've got a roof, a family, a full time job, and the rest is basically up to me to make happen. And I'm confident I can continue to do that.
