December! Aka- the end of 2014?? already???
well. My computer (Beasley) has reached the point where hospice care was needed and she has officially tagged off her responsibilities to our new friend Ramona. Yes, I name all my stuff. But the point of that sentence was to state my excuse for not blogging for the whole month- which was b/c my computer was quite unpredictable and grouchy.
What you missed.
Many a train ride. There is something almost poetic to me about empty train cars in the middle of the day. Here’s two common views in my life these days.
Mocha art and peppermint gifts in Tribeca before a friend moves.
wrrrr. Fast forward to finalizing my first semester of teaching, flying home, Christmas morning, and family.
Selfie revenge- put in on a blog. 🙂 you’re welcome Bri. 🙂
These days I enjoy the time warp that is ‘home for the holidays.’ It includes things like helping my mom put in a quilt, bowling my first over 100 score, and family family family. I don’t mind one bit.
To end this post and this year- I will use some internet memes/pins to express myself.
1. my thoughts towards break:
2. How I feel about being home:
3. How I feel about the end of a year:
So here it is, my formal, in writing, farewell. To the year that brought me family East Coast trips, printed diplomas and moments of joy so loud my heart jumped outside my body. It brought me elephant rides, waterfall climbs, and ginger on chicken. It was the miracle of landing my first job the Friday before school started and learning to handle kids who can’t use words to tell me they are sad, bored, hurt, happy, or insecure. And, most of all, it was growing and learning and becoming- from trying and studying and waiting and praying. The memories make the year- the lessons make my life.
Goodbye and farewell 2014. You have been all the good, the bad, and the ugly. And I’m beyond blessed to have shared it with each of you. See you on the flip side dears.
