Blogmas Day 25: Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
Well, guys...we did it. Another Blogmas under our belts. It's been quite a weird month, and I'm happy to have shared it with you. Between a 70-degree Christmas, making Dean's List, putting on my first public reading, scoring tickets to a taping of Jimmy Fallon, and trying not to lose my mind in-between, December felt like the month that would never end, but in the best way. And while there is still about week before we bid this year farewell, I'm beginning to tie 2015 with a bow and brace myself for my next adventure, whatever that entails. And there's something about reflecting on the year and winding down from Christmas that leaves me feeling festive and jaunty, and what better way to indulge in that feeling than a poorly planned ode to 2016? This seems like an odd end to Blogmas, but I don't know, guys...it just feels right. Besides, Christmas is super hokey, anyway.
2016 will be more effort, more laughter, and more books.
Less hating, less strife, and less obsessing over my looks.
Learning more about myself and figuring out what that means,
in the way I relate to others and the ways I achieve my dreams.
Being more deliberate in the things I say and do,
Telling people I love them (and yes, that probably means you.)
Trying my very best to take full advantage of my time,
and maybe less cheesy blog posts in which I try to rhyme.
But for now that seems to be the task, with no other plans in sight.
So, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
