Here's to 2014

2013 has been something of a rollercoaster for me. I met some goals and missed others. Somehow I was able to keep up some of my writing through what was the busiest academic year yet. The entire experience was quite an adventure, though not one that I am keen to repeat any time soon. I would rather be more realistic this year, to pick things that suit my lifestyle and goals that I truly want to accomplish--not just borrowing words from someone else's list.

This year, I did make some memorable goals--and some good memories. I graduated with honors-a journey that took me a handful of years and perhaps more sanity than I care to admit-but it is also a time for new things, new experiences and new adventures in this coming year.

I know there are many shiny new things that come with this new year--so here are my new year wishes for all my readers, friends and family. May your 2014 be filled with magic, dreams, and the good kind of craziness that makes you smile.  I hope you read wonderful books, meet amazing new friends and travel somewhere that makes your heart sigh. I hope you have one absolutely perfect day. I hope you make so many good memories that you can't just pick one favorite. Oh, and be yourself in 2014--be creative, take pictures, sing, dance, write, paint, whatever. Do your thing. Do it proudly. And I hope, somewhere in this new year, you surprise yourself.
