Damn guys. 2014 was insane. So many changes, so much awkwardness and weirdness and adjustment and ugh, it was just WEIRD. But looking back through my Instagram and seeing all those moments makes me really happy. This year was full on crazy, but it was full of awesome stuff. I had so much fun and Los Angeles has really started to feel like home (almost a full year later.)
Try something new this year. It might be weird and difficult… and really hard while you're IN it - but at the end, when you look back, it was TOTALLY worth it. And more great things tend to happen when you shake things up than not.
I'm super excited for 2015. Especially since I don't have a major move planned and have a year in Los Angeles under my belt. I love a new year! It's so hopeful and exciting and almost always disappointing as the year goes on and gets completely monotonous! But whatever. I like getting excited about things. I might have some resolutions, I don't know - but all in all, I would like 2015 to be a very good year? I guess that's safe to say.
