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!
