veronica mars (2014)

Dad always said this town could wreck a person. It’s what happens when you play a rigged game. I convinced myself winning meant getting out. But in what world do you get to leave the ring and declare victory? This is where I belong. In the fight. It’s who I am. I’ve rolled around in the mud for so long…wash me clean and I don’t recognize myself. So, how about I just accept the mud? And the tendency I have to find myself rolling in it? My name is Veronica, and I’m an addict. (Veronica Mars, 2014)

2014 in Retrospect

While some stars continued to brighten…

And some we thought were gone blinked back into existence…

Others burned out, and we will miss them forever.

I finished my visit in Sunnydale…

went back to Neptune…

learned what it meant to live and die in Los Angeles…

and now find myself spending a considerable amount of time in The West Wing.

I traveled the galaxy with it’s guardians…

a man with love in his heart…

and a new Doctor!

I meet people I understood completely…

on levels I never expected…

and my heart broke a little (or a lot) with them.

I encountered new kinds of horrors…

including ones which weren’t as horrific as they were badass.

I discovered just how badly a heist can go…

and I learned that everything is awesome!

I stayed in one of the most amazing hotels in the world…

while I saw a child grow up before my eyes…

and rediscovered my own childhood.

And while the actresses I loved continued to be amazing…

I discovered just how lovely others could be.

I flew high…

I walked long…

I fell hard…

and I kept getting back up.

I fought with heroes…

and sat through experiences I intensely regret.

But I found the music…

on multiple occasions…

and found peace.

All in all, I saw 62 different films in theaters…which adds up to a grand total of 337 since August 22nd, 2009!

All in all, not a bad year.
