It’s 2014, Boy.1
Even though my particular OCD thrives on starting something new with the beginning of some time element2, I don’t make resolutions.
I think it puts too much pressure on a decision and only increases the chance for failure.
I don’t make predictions either.
No road is straight and without forks, spurs, off-ramps, roadblocks, and Starbucks.
But there are some things I do know as fact for 2014:
It will be the last full year that I will be in my 30’s.
It will mark ten years as a blogger3. There have certainly been dormant periods on all three blogs, so I can’t say it’s 10 full years. But I Pressed my first Words in 2004. My OCD is tingling with the idea that the ten-year mark will be a good place to wrap it up. But, who knows. I tried to walk away from the keyboard before starting this blog4 but I failed at that.
See what I mean about resolutions?
If Granny, who is in decent health, survives another three full months, she will complete 97 years.
The Attorney and I will complete seven years together, while facing a potential relationship changer if he decides to move another hour or so further away for work related reasons. I’ve kept this last part under wraps because it may not become an issue.
I am re-launching my t-shirt business5. I have partnered with a friend who has more ability and time to devote to the actual running of it, while I will continue create the designs of the shirts. More on all that when it is ready.
So, that’s at least what I know for sure about 2014.
I will just have to see what else the universe throws at me, and take it on as best I can.
But, I have plenty for now.
It’s only Day 1. Here’s hoping mostly good things come your way this year and the bad things are managable.
If you wake up January 1, 2015, then you managed on some level, Boy.
