The Times They Are a Changin’

SO….It has been about 18 months since I posted, but I am going to try to get back into the blog game.  Here a few updates in my life, in 2014 I have made some major changes and here is a high level overview of what has made this one of the most exciting year in a while:

  • I stepped out of my comfort zone and made new friends, some have really changed my life others have not so much but they have all been players in this year.
  • I bought a HOUSE! It is crazy, if you would have asked me this time last year if I would be sitting in my new kitchen writing this post, I would have told you are nuts.
  • I have had success at work with increase responsibility and pay (the second is always nice)
  • I watched one of my oldest and dearest friends tie the knot, it was crazy to think someone I spent so much time with s a child is now a married man.  It was perhaps stranger than seeing my sister get married in 2013.
  • I have gone on all sorts of adventures: festivals, hometown tourist destinations, seeing my world with fresh eyes.
  • I have eaten a lot of great food- see the above bullet point.
  • I have learned to say goodbye, goodbye to neighborhoods, people, expectations- I credit lots of this to hard work in therapy, which is something I am so proud of myself for doing.

2014 was a hell of a year and I can’t wait to see what the last few weeks and the new year have in store.  I know this isn’t a big read for people, it shouldn’t be these are my own personal thoughts and musings, but I am going to work on updating more frequently.

Cheers!

Overall, despite the rain, a great day. Thanks to both my dads for all they do.

Happy Friday! I’m on my popcorn break…

I am actually sitting at my desk eating popcorn right now so this only seemed appropriate!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I am running the Kentucky Derby Festival Mini marathon so wish me luck!
