Goodbye 2014

NYE 2014
Don't know about you, but I think it's an incredible experience to look back on your year - especially when you're a blogger. Growing up, New Year's Eve was a night to watch Dick Clark's TV special, eat lots of junk food, and watch some fireworks. I wasn't concerned about resolutions, what happened last year, much less what would happen the next. Thanks to blogging and instagram, I have something to look back on.

2014 Resolutions:

Read more: So I only read 3 or 4 books? I don't remember and I'm not going to kick myself for it either. I still love to read and still can't stop laughing through each chapter of the Man Repeller!

Volunteer more: I continued volunteering for a local animal shelter, but I also volunteered in other small ways. I recently joined the Meals on Wheels team and the people are wonderful. Looking forward to new volunteer opportunities in 2015!

Run more: Not only did I run a 10K, I also beat some personal records this year! I decided to try yoga for the summer, but now I'm back into running. Here's to new races in 2015, possibly a half?

Dress Up more: Thanks to my new job, my shopping habits now revolve around "work clothing". I constantly ask myself, can I wear said item to work? And if it works for work and the weekend, bonus points! Whether I went to the grocery store or out to happy hour, I loved dressing up this year!

Take Vitamins: So I never bought a pill organizer, thus my vitamin days lasted a mere month or so. I'm thinking if I take them to work, it can become part of my morning routine. Check my email, grab a cup of green tea, and take my vitamins. Sounds easy, right?

Sleep more: I think this year's lack of blogging should explain itself. I chose sleep over late night blogging sessions and it was wonderful.

Even though I didn't hit every 2014 resolution perfectly, I'm proud of my 2014. I decided to leave a job I wasn't happy with, started a job somewhere new, went to some amazing concerts, made new friends, ran my first 10K, explored Austin with my college besties, discovered feminism, had my first promotion, and chopped off my hair - twice! I took chances, pushed myself out of my comfort zone, went on new adventures, and you know what? I don't regret a single moment.


  1. I'm so glad you had such an awesome year! Here's to an even better 2015.


  2. I love looking back at a year and having this feeling of success! So proud of you on the new job (and promotion) and for discovering feminism! Oh and the sleep thing? Totally me in 2014, too!!


Thanks for reading, you've really made my day!
