December, and the end of 2014 are finally upon us. Everyone is so nice and cheery, I can’t decide if I love it or despise it.
I’m going to go with loving it.
Not only am I thinking about presents, so far the only ones I’ve bought are for myself, and how to decorate my home for the final time, but I’m also looking back at the past year.
It’s been a doozy. This year I’ve let in the most people since I moved to Iowa. I’ve had my heart broken multiple times. I got my license. I remembered that (occasionally) having access to a car meant that I am spending way too much money. I’ve tried to get fit and healthy, but fell into a container of Chinese food before pouring myself into bed.
But I’ve finally figured out what I want with my life. And I wouldn’t have been able to do that if I hadn’t let the people in. If my heart hadn’t gotten broken and I realized that I needed to figure out a way to do things on my own.
So I’ll be taking the next month to come up with a game plan for 2015. What I’ve got planned is major, so I must be sketching things out, setting aside funds and yoga-ing out all the stress. And sure, I might do the occasional brain storm session with some take-out Chinese and a bottle of champagne, but that’s just how I roll.
