No more coffee at 11PM from now on

2014 was a strange duck of a year for me. I say that because I'm not sure whether or not I categorize it as either a good or a great year. It was a horrible year for the family as we lost our grandpa earlier, and with Christmas Day less than 24 hours away, it's going to be different. It was different when I lost my other grandpa a couple years back as well. On the other hand, I had an amazing summer and it's looking like the year will end on a bit of a high note. But it would be impudent to consider this year a good year after what happened earlier. Maybe categorizing how a year went is too antiquated of an approach now. It's too unrealistic to expect a year to be perfect, and maybe that's the problem.

The things I think about at 3 in the morning on Christmas Eve.

I don’t normally care for new years resolutions, but…

One of my goals this year is to be more creative. I’ve focused so much this past year on training for my marathon and dragon boating that I neglected the other part of me that I’ve known much longer than either of those two: music. I want to do more in that sphere, and since September I’ve been riding this wave of momentum with my guitar playing that I hope to sustain well into 2014. Maybe actually perform out in public.

Oh, and also clear out this horrible back log on my Amazon Kindle app. I have a handful of books I have yet to read that I bought over the last year. Unacceptable.

Maybe I do

I don’t know how to define 2013.

Which is somewhat of an odd thing for me, because I’ve been able to categorize every passing year in some way. 2013 was tough, but not without a sense of accomplishment, growth and of course, happiness and peace that I didn’t know was there. It was a mixed goodie bag of a year for me, but I think what I had achieved was what made this year special. I guess when I think about it in that sense, it was pretty good.

Farewell 2013. 2014, please be kind.
