A Year in Review: 2014

I haven't posted as much this year, the lack of accessible rooftop space at my new job has been the only downside of the position, but all in all I would say 2014 has been a good-to-probably-great year.

I blew past my original purchasing goal less than halfway through 2014, and tracking my purchases got way too depressing when I realized just how much I spent on clothing. It was one of those "ignorance really is bliss" moments, but I think I'll take the information and at least make sure I remain cognizant of what I'm buying in 2015. I don't want to deny myself the option of shopping, and I'm still constantly pulling things out of my closet for donation, so as long as I'm not buying mindlessly I'm going to say things could be worse.

I hope you've all had a great holiday season, no matter how or who you celebrate it with, and I'm going to send up a wish for all of us that 2015 is slightly better for the world.

Silly Questions & Geek of the Week #22

Leave a Comment
Sometimes when I'm out and about I find myself asking, "Dana, do we need this?". Which is always a silly question because no one ever needs anything once you're past the bare essentials, but I still consider this decoupaged piggy bank a worthwhile purchase. I mean look at it! It's covered in all the best women heroes and villains, up to and including Xena and Storm!

Best $20 I've spent in a while.

long time no see

So somehow it's been almost a month since I posted up here. I can blame some of that on November being absolutely nuts commitment wise, but honestly I've just been feeling pretty blah. The news coming out of every corner of the world has been depressing and it's hard to take pictures in that kind environment. I did manage to turn 29 over the interim, and hopefully between that and Christmas I'll be able to work in some positive energy.
