Hey Internet! Happy New Year!!! I would have loved to really sit down and reflect on the past year, but honestly I’ve been running around like a crazy person since before Christmas. It’s all been really good stuff, but I just haven’t gotten a chance to really look back.
So as I sit here in my mom’s hotel room (did I mention my mom is back in town this week? Like I said- crazy person.), with a mojito by my side and old fashioned Disney cartoons playing in the background, I do have a little time to breathe and think back on the past year.
If you had told me at the beginning of 2014 that I would be living in Florida within the year I would have had a hard time believing you. If you told me that I would move move down here without a job, I would have called you a crazy person, because I don’t leap. I’m not a leaper. If you had told me I would move down here to get a master’s degree in statistics I would have said “Stop trying to make fetch happen, mom. It’s not too going to happen.” But [redacted Justin Bieber reference] never say never. (Also I want to make it clear – I did this for me, not my mom or anybody else. I’m happy with my decision, which was mine. But my mom was very happy.) And if you had told me that I would be writing this blog post on my kindle on New Years Eve night, well that i totally would have believed.
Anyway. 2014. What a year. It was definitely hard at times. It was really good at other times. I learned a lot (and I’m not just talking about the calculus). It started in Denver at the bestie’s wedding and it’s ending in a Disney hotel room. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’m excited to see what 2015 brings. I don’t have any resolutions for the new year, but I have some goals. I want to continue to do
well in school. I want to make taking care of myself a bigger priority. I want to move out of the Titanic in August. I want to be intentional in my relationships – both with God and with others. I want to blog more consistently.
So I’m trying this “Word of the Year” thing (because I like to shamelessly copy other bloggers) and say that my word of the year for 2015 is going to be “intentional.” I want to live intentionally instead of just floating along seeing what happens. Will I fail at this? Probably a lot. But I want to try. Because trying is important guys.
Anywhoozles, what are your goals for 2015? I want to know!
