Let's look back.

2014 is coming to an end. So much happened this year that I only can raise the bar for 2015.

Let's look back at my 2014

January. I was starting to blog a bit more. I made a few posts. One of them being my 2014 New Years Resoultions.  I think I have done a great job on all five.  I haven't decided yet what my 2015 resolutions will be or if I will even make them but I'm glad to know that I did a good job on last years.

The day has come! On January 2nd I got my visa in the mail.

Sunday Recap: December 28

This past week wet by really quickly. I only had to work three days so rather than take the bus I took the train. It was a nice experience. Work whipped by and I worked only four hours Christmas Eve and it was all on tills. All my housemates disappeared off to their own families leaving me all by myself. A bit of a lone wolf, I opened presents, drank, cooked myself a lovely turkey dinner and then in the spirit of Frozen built my own snowman using most of the snow in the yard. Lots of chocolate was also consumed over the four days I had off. I watched 'The Hundred Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared' a present from Jamie. My coworker Becky also got me the Welsh tv series Stella and I was able to get through the first four episodes.

With the new year coming I a trying to decide on some goals to set myself for travel but so far its relatively small. Will need more time to think about it.
1. Harry Potter Studio Tour
2. Disneyland Paris
