Oh boy, here it is, the typical new year's post. It's an important one, though, no matter how overdone it is. This is the post that lets you stop and take a look back at 365 days of your life and figure out what you did right, what you did wrong, what you want to do again and what should never, ever, ever be spoken of again. It's a self evaluation of sorts. I know how much we all hated doing those at the end of a year or a semester, but they're important for personal growth. Believe me, I hate looking back more than anyone, but I'm glad I have opportunities like these to do it.
This year was fantastic! I got to know the most amazing girl, got to hang out with brothers I will keep for the rest of my life and got to meet new friends that have made change so much more fun. I ended one chapter of my life in a place I will always call home and made the terrifying leap to a new place to start another chapter.
I chased dreams, held down jobs, took chances to try new jobs. I branched out to create projects with some of the most creative people I've ever met. (seriously keep an eye out for these guys because they're going places!) I had regrets, sure, but I came to accept those choices as the things that made me cry and move on and learn what not to do next time.
I can't believe all that I packed into 365 days. Anyone who knows me knows how ambitious I can be and how hard-headedly I run after what I want. I don't plan on changing that at all either. In fact, all that I did in 2014 has only made me more confident that I don't have any limits. I've tasted a tiny bit of what this world has to offer and I want more. I want to learn new things, try (more) things that scare me, put out projects that I can brag about and pack full absolutely every one of the next 365 days (okay 362 day now). I'll probably screw up a little more and have a few more regrets to look back on in 2016, but I can deal with that, because, as Warren Miller said "If you don't do it this year, you'll be one year older when you do."
Okay, I'm done reflecting now. Happy New Year everyone! Make every day count in 2015.
