Looking Back Over 2014...

It's hard to believe that 2014 is almost behind us. As I write this, my clock registers only 9 hours more before the calendar changes to 2015. Sufferin' cats! Who knew it could fly by so fast?

So what did 2014 look like for me? Well, as I did last year, I'd like to take the opportunity to do a quick review and let you all share the bits of adventures with me. I don't have the time to go in depth for this, but I'll just post a few highlights. 

~ I finished the first draft of Secret of the Hazel Tree at around 198,000 words

~ Hosted the Dear Love party for Valentine's Day (thank you to all the girls who helped out with that!)

~ Went to college (and survived the first semester!)

~ Worked the front desk at my dad's tech center

~ Heard selections from the Messiah live and loved it so much that I went twice :)

~ Met my third cousin, Friday

~ Went ice skating for the very first time in my life (I only fell down 5 times)

~ Became a Oncer with three other awesome people who all know exactly who they are; we all agree Maine is a very cool place

~ Watched Fiddler on the Roof for the very first time -- where has that musical been all my life??

~ Began way too many plot bunnies (I counted at least 10 that came out of 2014)

~ Hit 90 followers on Lianne Taimenlore (love you guys!!)

~ Wrote a Beauty and the Beast story for the Five Enchanted Roses contest (which I will unfortunately not be entering as the contest closed before I could get the entry in... oh, well)

~ Learned I had synesthesia 

~ FINALLY saw HTTYD2... and of course, it was months after it came out and everyone I knew and their sister had already seen it *growl*

Hope you all have a wonderful New Year's! I'll see you all in 2015!

God bless!


  1. It sounds like a lovely year, Kiri! Yes, Fiddler on the Roof is awesome! I'm so glad you discovered it. (-: And isn't ice skating so fun? I went ice skating for the first time in four or five years, and I probably fell down more times than you did. XD Good job! It's been so neat following your blog for the last year or so, and kind of getting to know you. Your blog is great, and I'm always excited to see new posts. (-:

  2. I've become half a Oncer this year. I've not been able to watch any full episodes, but I watch the clips that people post on YouTube, and for the most part enjoy them. I liked what they did with Frozen. Not what I would have done, but I liked it.

    And all this talk of the Author has convinced me that the Enchanted Forest is a page of Bookania. I mean, it would make sense, wouldn't it?

    Here's to a great year!

  3. Awesome that you became a Oncer!!! You will not regret it!! :)
