Holiday Post: Good-bye 2014!


As 2014 comes to a close, I do what just about everyone does. I reflect.

What was good?

What was bad?

And I don’t carry around any regrets, but was there anything I could have done differently to make a better 2015?

Nothing outstanding happened this year, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There were ups and downs, of course … I mean, what year doesn’t have them? … but it’s how you get through them, right? My career isn’t exciting, but it’s fun and I enjoy it. It’s a stepping stone, but a good stepping stone. My education is trudging along on a good path. I’m loving it, if I’m honest. Such a geek, loving school.

I’ve watched a lot of TV. I’ve watched a lot of movies. I’ve watched some theatre. There were some good episodes and good movies, and there were some bad ones too.  It’s been a sad year for TV for me, saying good-bye to at least three of my shows. But some new ones look promising as we move into the new year. And there are still some solid favorites that will be on air for at least one more season so that’s okay.

I’ve done a lot of writing. Not sure if all of it would be considered “good” writing, but I’m glad to have written more than I have in past years, especially daily postings on my blog. I like this, blogging. And I have to make it a point to continue this into the new year and hopefully get better. Be a better writer, write better posts–added to my to-do list.

Overall, it’s been an okay kind of year. So, if I were to rate the year I’ve had, I’d give it a 4-star rating. I’m not quite sure what would make it a 5-star year, but I’ll give it some thought. And even though it’s only a 4-star, I’m grateful for the year I’ve had. Many experiences I can add to my life resume. And while 2015 holds some challenges right out the gate, I’m excited for it. It’s a whole new 365 days. Days I’ve never lived before. Days I can live to the fullest if I choose to. That’s always exciting.

Favorite Life Scene 2014:
I have to say it would be within this past week. I spent a day in the mountains with family and that’s always fun. And it was beautiful! No clouds for most of our day. And I got to visit the museum up there so I can’t argue with that.
