About a year ago, somebody (Keith's aunt) asked me if I would ever want to get back together with him. I'm pretty sure I laughed at that.
"No! We haven't spoken in like, two years! Plus, if we did, I'd probably end up eventually moving down to where he lives and I never want to leave San Luis."
If you had told me a year ago that in 2014 I would have gotten back together with Keith, quit my job in San Luis and moved to the mountains, I would have told you you're crazy.
If you had told me a year ago that some of the friends I was so close to then wouldn't really be a part of my life right now, I would have rolled my eyes and muttered something like, "Yeah, right."
If you had told me a year ago that in 2014 I would win NaNoWriMo again, I would have gotten excited and asked you what I was going to write about, and then doubt you because writing 50,000 words in a month is hard.
I thought I had a pretty good idea of what would happen in 2014. I thought I would stay in San Luis and at some point get an apartment by myself, and I thought I would continue working at my job where I could watch Netflix and blog all day. I didn't give much thought to dating, because I didn't care if I had a boyfriend or not. And I especially never thought I'd be where I am now.
But I'm so glad I am...which leads me to the next part, the most exciting part:
The other night Amber and I were talking about all that had happened in 2014 and how we never could have predicted most things. Then we thought we would enjoy trying to predict 2015, and we're really generous so we're letting you join us! On Monday, December 29th, we're hosting a link-up for all of us to predict things we think will happen in our lives, in the country, in the world, whatever, in 2015. You can predict happy things, funny things, sad things... predict away! BE YOUR OWN ZOLTAR. (You know, the fortune guy. Amber shared a picture of him today.)
I wish I had written down more specific things last year so I could look back on them now, but oh well. You live and you learn or something. So, on 12/29 please join us and let us know what you think will happen next year! DECEMBER 29TH. REMEMBER THAT.
