2014, in many ways, was a good year for me. I finally graduated and got my B.A., I got to continue to work as a assistant football coach – which oddly allowed me to get much better at Adobe Premiere, and I got to spend more time with my parents, who are awesome.
2014 was the year I got into an honor society, which is something I never thought of nor anticipated ever really wanting. But I’m really glad I did it. The certificate from it is in my first plaque. I didn’t even get a plaque for my associates degree. I never thought I could feel so much pride from wood and glass.
I normally hate reflecting. Not because I don’t like gloating – I do – but I don’t normally like to evaluate where I am. I have trouble with that. Sometimes it reinforces my mortality, other times it can be depressing – I think anyone can say that about themselves. As I sit here, on the first day of 2015 (and technically the day after my birthday – even if the 24 hour period is up), I’m thinking about what I want out of next year. This year. And how I should attempt to get it.
In 2015 I want to work on the following:
I don’t know if there is anything else I can put on the list. Ever since I completed SNHU I’ve been ruminating on what I want from life. A lot of people end college and say they are going to get “X” job in “X” city, or do something great for the people in their community. No part of me really feels that way about anything right now. I have things I like to do and life goals I would like to hit. But there isn’t a marker right now. There is no road sign with a definitive next step. All I want right now is to do something I can be passionate about. Can anyone really ask for anything more?
2015 will be the year I get my groove back. The year I figure out the next road to take. 2015 will be the year I find passion.
