I know it’s a bit late for this. I was going to do it the week of New Year’s, but being sick made that a bit more difficult. So, I may be a little late. But you know what they say, better late than never.

So, what can I say about 2014… the year that felt simultaneously too fast and too slow?

If I were to call 2014 one word it would be interesting… Chinese curse interesting. There were far too many ups and downs. The downs were pretty sizeable. The ups, not so much. While it wasn’t the worst of times… it certainly wasn’t good either.

The worst part was the three months in the middle. I lost both of my grandparents on my father’s side. They went one month after the other. The next month I lost my job. It was a lot for one time. I did manage to get another job… that now I go to once a week.

So, what was good?

I met some awesome new people. I met a cool new friend at Comic Con this year. I met a few others through Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest.

As ever, I’m trying to look back, but only forward.

So… what does that mean?

Well, I’ve got plans for this year. I’m continuing to make things happen. I really want to work doing my writing. Whether that means my blog or if it means that I can actually sell screenplays or get something actually published, who knows.

It’s just a matter of seeing where things go. I do love writing. I love writing here… even if I haven’t been able to do so as much lately (which is something I strive to change). I’m hoping that this year will bring me nothing but positive change. I’ve had my share of negative change, it’s time for some positive change. I don’t mean this just personally. I also mean this globaly. It feels like the world is feeling more weary.

My hope is that in the next year, everything gets better. The world and my life gets a great and wonderful upswing.

Here’s to hoping!
