I won't miss you, 2014

can honestly say that 2014 was one of the shittiest years - in day to day life - ever. Nothing catastrophic happened, but it was definitely the most stressful year I can remember. Being old, going back to school full time with a full time job is an ass-kicker.  I'm tired.

Also not helping the cause, Matt also decided to go back to school. And he quit his job. So there's a lot of pressure on me as the sole source of income.  Plus some resentment that he gets to go to school without the pressure of working. So that also put pressure on our relationship. We fought a lot. And then the fact that he's always home these days made for irritation. I miss having real solitude. 

I also had sinus surgery - which, although it has improved the quality of my life in the long run made for a miserable couple of weeks and a crappy way to spend spring break. 

My parents moved farther away and I miss being an hour's plane ride from them. I used to be able to go see them for the weekend. Now that's less feasible, since they're three time zones and 2500 miles away. 

See?  Nothing major. But generally shitty. So that's it. I'm not sorry it's over. I won't remember it fondly. I'd actually like the opportunity to punch 2014 in the face. 
Still, I'm hoping that 2015 is a great year for everyone, but kind of especially for me. Happy New Year, friends!
