I was going to write a holiday-ish post earlier, but December has been super-busy - and in a good sense, since there's been so much socializing - that it turned into a New Year's post. 

Not-so-good things first:
Bullet; Orange got diagnosed with autoimmune thyroid inflammation in spring and struggled with sleep issues, which resulted in general fatigue about a lot of things, but both of these things seem to be in check for now;
Bullet; Orange lost more than half a year's worth of photos because of not having backed them up regularly and then accidentally formatting the camera's SD card. Lesson learned, because there were some rather nice memory-making and nature photos on there;
Bullet; Orange had stress-related depression in autumn, but that is also resolved for now.

Nicer things:
Bullet; Green traveled a lot around my country this year, definitely more than during the past several years;
Bullet; Green stopped caring so much about how drawings come out, which resulted in actually drawing more, if not better;
Bullet; Green bought a macro lens for my dSLR and took some baby steps with it; 
Bullet; Green switched my job to a better paid and more demanding contract that made me reevaluate and improve my work ethic;
Bullet; Green went to two local cons;
Bullet; Green traveled to Austria and Czech Republic;
Bullet; Green snipped some toxic relationships out of my life and reached out more towards positive people;
Bullet; Green continued following more sky event news and saw some nice ones, too, like blazing noctilucent clouds in midsummer nights and two meteor showers (although one of them was, sadly, very sparse :B ). 

Resolutions are pretty simple:
Bullet; Red draw something every day (even if just a 5-minute doodle);
Bullet; Red read a bit every day; 
Bullet; Red take some photos at least once a week and back them up at least once a month;
Bullet; Red keep a "remembolutions" jar, since I tend to forget what happened when. In fact, I forgot to do it this year.  Oops! 

On top of that I have some actual plans and hopes in regards to work and my health, but I don't want to discuss those until plans have at least been set into motion. ;P 
Also, I would *like* to pick up another language (I have a few realistic options), brush up on my German and Russian, and return to making, not just consuming, music in some capacity, but I can't predict how lazy or busy I'll be, so I don't really feel like calling these things "resolutions". 

Onto 2015!

Thank you for the kind words, I'll try to kick my own ass during this year and have some plans... which won't be talked about until they're set in motion, at least!
Yisss, there are always new ways to find exciting foods! I brought some cake to work and then went to a restaurant with my babe. 

Thank you, it's always very interesting to talk to you, too! ^3^

Yes, that's a good idea! I've read that it's not beneficial to talk about plans to others for various reasons - 1) it puts on needless pressure, 2) some people get too immersed in talking about doing something they don't end up doing it. :'D ((has had both happen to self at times))

Sounds awesome! And, again, wish you best of luck! *o* <33
