You can trust the sky to do something original every day. – Michael Lipsey
Looking back on the year, this was my favorite collage. I scored a huge old collectors catalog of china figurines at a library book sale and had a ball creating landscapes for them and choosing which of my epigrams for them to say. I’ve posted some of these in the last few months and still have plenty of material left for 2015. “Truly the whole world is open before us, everything waiting to be done.” -Picasso
My favorite pictures of my top 10 favorite cosplays from 2014. Vaguely separated by fandom. FINE Roxy was from November 2013, however, I finally learned how to do her makeup and got really good shots of her in 2014. :)
♥ 2 0 1 4 ♥ Well, well, well. It is officially the last day of 2014. And even though I had my ups and downs this year the UPS definitely 100% overcome the downs. It was one of the BEST years of my life and here is why:
Seeing Ringo Starr with VIP tickets for the second time!
FINALLY seeing Paul McCartney for the first time on August 10, 2014 in Los Angeles, CA (Dodgers Stadium)
Seeing Paul yet AGAIN the following month on September 28, 2014 in my hometown of San Diego, CA (Petco Park)
Standing (literally) 4 feel from Paul McCartney as he arrived at the stadium (Photo on the top left is taken by me)
Being featured in Paul’s official video for ‘Save Us’ (Screenshot on the top middle). MPL confirmed that he saw it and loved it which officially means Paul McCartney knows of my existence and knows what I look like. :‘O
Getting TWO replies on Twitter directly from PAUL MCCARTNEY himself when he was doing a personal Q&A with his fans (Something that doesnt happen often so I got incredibly lucky)
These are the 6 things that stand out for me this year it was the best year for me as a Beatlemaniac (,: I dont know how 2015 will top it but we’ll see! GOODBYE 2014! I WILL MISS YOU! ♥
(All photos on this collage are taken by me…except for the youtube video screenshot and the twitter replies screenshot, obvs)
-after 5 years the boyfriend and I broke up at the beginning of November.
-so for the last two months I have been indulging. Wine, GF pizza, and dancing being my favorites.
-my little brother turned 21 on the 3rd and I finally was able to take him out dancing.
-I’ve been able to reconnect with a handful of friends and it’s made me really happy
-I will be moving in to my own place. And living on my own for the first time ever in March 😳
-I went out on a date with a guy. First one in five years. And it was absolutely awful. Lol that will be a horror story for another time.
-I will be working with Layne Norton this year and I will be starting up prep real soon. Extremely excited.
2014 has been a crazy, rollercoaster year. I was in the tv show Rectify and the movie Term Life. I worked with Ryan Gosling in a movie (can’t say the name yet, sorry!). I was a youth spokesperson for the Arthritis Foundation and was interviewed by a local talkshow. I met Ridley Pearson and Rick Riordan at book signings. I also met Jenn McAllister (Jennxpenn on youtube). On my birthday there were shooters on my school’s campus and we had to hide under tables for several hours. I went to Warped Tour. I won the Kennesaw Writers of Promise award. I went to the Night Before Our Stars (Fault in Our Stars event). I worked stage crew for my school’s theater group. I went to my 8th grade prom. I started high school (which was less scary than I imagined). I started Youtube. I wrote my first novel. I got into District Honor Band. I quit band to let myself explore other interests.
It has been crazy busy, but definitely a year I will never forget.
