Life: 2014 Favorites & 2015 Goals

2015 Goals

Well let's start with the goals... well my 30 before 30 covers most all of my big goals, but other than that I want to grow more of my own food, and cut out as much food with preservatives as possible as told to me by my doc.
What else... hmmm, actually get up and dress nice for work, my work is alright with jeans and hoodies but that doesn't make me feel good about myself, so let's get dressed nicer again!
- Walk my dog more, duh.
- Finish projects.
- And this song "Thirteen" by Big Star is more inspiration for the 2015; lovely, simple and oh so heartfelt.

DUDE THIS SONG IS EVERYTHING. I am not even going to be ashamed to admit that I discovered it via the Gilmore Girls soundtrack. Nope! Too great of a song! I am trying to dress up more for work too, I just bought a crapload of trousers for $1 each at SA and even wore lippy today! 2015, BRING IT.

Yeah, there's a documentary about the band on netflix right now, it's so good and so heart breaking. All the music that they made is so good, and it's sad cause it was so short lived and they didn't get the recognition for it until years later when one was guy was already dead :(

I've been planning my outfits :) Now if only I could remember makeup.

Big Star is a band that should be liked by more people, I think. Beautiful. Oh man. I haven't gone to an anime convention since Anime Boston 2005. I'm so out of it. . .I mean I even went to one on the first night and day of my honeymoon in 2004...I don't even know what anime is out these days or if I'd like it.
You had a great 2014 from what I can see!
