Happy New Year (and What I Read in 2014)

Happy New Year!

I'm the sort of person who is always looking forward, always planning something, and I'm so excited for 2015! I'm going to read (at least) 55 books, take sewing lessons from Nancy's Sewing Basket, get more comfortable in my new job as an adult services librarian, finish organizing the apartment (including setting up Curtis's home office), spend more time with friends and family, workout at least twice per week on the ferry, complete Level 1 of the TKGA Master Hand Knitting program, try to learn Japanese and maybe American Sign Language... I've certainly got lots of BIG goals, but I am determined. Just because I'm busy making plans for this year doesn't mean that I don't have a lot of positive things to look back on too. I finished school and started my new career as an adult services librarian; I got engaged; I moved into a new apartment.

I also surpassed my 2014 reading goal of 50 books by 4! Being finished with school and working in a library sure made a difference in my reading pace. In the three months that I've been working in the library, I read 25 books -- half of my goal for the whole year. I set my goal for next at 55. I'm planning on going up by 5 books every year that I meet the previous year's goal, but given how much reading I did in the fall of 2014, I may have set a relatively low goal for myself. We shall see...
