2014 Year in Review/2015 Goals

As 2014 only has about 28 hours left by my clock, I figure I should do this.

Review of 2014 Goals
1) Meet Generation 9 and finish planning the legacy endgame.
Considering I didn't even publish a Bradford chapter in 2014, this was a big fat nope.  Oh, well.  I was occupied with other stuff.
2) Play for fun.
Check and check.  I spent a bunch of time messing around in Pleasantview, and also set up a Victorian-themed RKC.  I have plans to share some more of that, once I get the Bradfords wrapped up.
3) Learn some different CC skills, like texturing.
I dids this! And I am wicked proud of myself.  I have a few other things that I'm working on and will keep poking at when I have more than an hour or two at a time.
4) Complete my BRRL spare story for Desdemona.
Yup, did this too. This was more work that I thought, and between it and my internship, it kind of drained my creativity.
5) Graduate from my master's program and get a real job.
Done!  I graduated with all As save for one class (Human Growth and Development), and now have gainful employment at the site where I did my internship.  I love it, and I'm so glad I was brave enough to quit a job I hated to go after my dream.

So what's on tap for 2015?
1) Meet Generation 9 and get the main members of it to college.
Seriously.  I love the Bradfords, but I'm so close and need to get it finished.
2) Publish 3 Bradford Chapters.
Since the next chapter is about a scene and a half away from being written, I think I can do this.
3) Work on and finish my Super Sekret CC Project.
I can't say more than this, as I don't want to disapoint if it doesn't work out right.
4) Play for fun.
Always good to do what got me into this game in the first place.
5) Enjoy my job and make a dent in my student loans.
The downside of not working while earning a Master's is debt.  I want to pay it down as quick as I can, so I'll be spending the next few months looking to refinance at a lower interest rate, and throwing buckets of my newly found paychecks at Uncle Sam.  But so, so worth it.

So that's about it.  If I don't talk to you before then, have a Happy New Year and a great 2015.
