At the end of the year, I really enjoy thinking back and remembering the things that happened over the months. I like trying to remember key events from each month, and thinking about all the changes that have happened during the course of the year. That’s one of the coolest things about having a blog – it’s a built in memory device for the year. Here’s a look back at 2014…
I reminisced about the movies and songs that defined my childhood, talked about how hard it is to know where you’re from when you’ve grown up in so many different places, and shared a fun Super Bowl game (which you should totally play this year!)
