Globally speaking, I'm certainly not the first to say that 2018 seemed like a bit of a dumpster fire. On a personal level, it was kind of a weirdly good one though. It's a strange juxtaposition, but I guess you take what you can get when you can get it. So here's what I got. … Continue reading 2018 in Review + 2019 Goals
I'm not quite sure how 2018 is already peeking its head around the corner at us. The past year has seemed blurrier than any I've experienced before, but I suppose chasing around a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old will do that to you. 2017 in Review Writing That being said, any year in which you end … Continue reading 2017 in Review + 2018 Goals
A review of my 2016 and my intentions and goals for 2017.
Since finding out I was going to be a parent in 2012, much of my energy, quite understandably, has been to feeling out my identity as a mother as well as a life partner (and as of October 18, 2014, a wife). Adding these layers to my life meant that the strongest part of my … Continue reading My #OneLittleWord for 2016: Identity
2015. Oof. On the one hand, I made this. On the other hand, it was probably the least productive year I've had in the last 6 or 7 when it comes to writing, creative endeavors and travel. My 2015 Goals My goals for the year were similar to what they always are: Read 24 books. Read 12 screenplays. … Continue reading 2015 in Review
So that's my thing for 2015: YES. It's going to be another crazy year with its own set of obstacles and hurdles and adventures and twists and turns. But I'm going to do my part to make it a good one.
Every year I sit down and review how the past 12 months have gone: what I've accomplished and what I wish I had. And then, from that analysis, I set my intentions for the next year. As I detailed in my 2013 Year in Review post, my word for this year is CORE, and I … Continue reading My New Year’s Initiatives for 2014
2013. One minute here, the next gone. This year has both flown and taken forever, depending on the moment or milestone or how many times Pip woke up during the night. But at least I sort of knew it was going to be like this going in, and for the most part, I feel … Continue reading 2013: My Year in Review
Every 5 to 11 years, Thanksgiving falls on my birthday. It's been a long stretch this time around, and I haven't celebrated a Thanksgiving birthday since 2002, when I was 19 turning 20. So, in the past 11 years, my life has changed drastically, and so, so much for the better. Since then, I've gotten … Continue reading On NaNoWriMo, Birthdays and Thankfulness
As the story of my life goes, I tend to retrospectively theme each year. 2008: The Year Everything Fell Apart 2009: The Year I Put Everything Back Together 2010: The Year I Became Me (aka The Year of Awesome) 2011: The Year of the Roller Coaster And if I have to continue that, the only … Continue reading 2012: My Year in Review
