It’s been a pretty fine year. Sure, maybe it hasn’t been the loudest but in some ways, that’s a victory in and of itself. Here are a few things I learned in 2014.
- If you really want to do something, you’ll make the time to actually do it.
- You can lead a client to a solution, but you can’t make them buy it.
- Public speaking makes me want to throw up before I go on and speak again once it’s over.
- The Save-for-Web Claw is real and we’re all going to get carpal tunnel.
- The Transformers sequels simply aren’t going to stop.
- If you don’t know how to do a hair tie, a hat or bandana works just as well for keeping snot out of your kid’s hair.
- Whiskey is medicine and works better than most over-the-counter remedies.
- At a certain age, there is such a thing as too much bacon and it feels like all the light has gone from the world; leaving only a husk of what it once was.
- Butts: Surprisingly hard to draw.
- People are preordering watches when what we should be preordering are jetpacks and hoverboards.
- My knowledge of the Tinker Bell Universe is vast, ever-expanding, and arguably the most concentrated repository of information currently in my mental possession.
- You can say you’re buying Legos "for the kids" all you want, but deep down you know the truth of the situation.
- These bullet-pointed listicles are essentially what journalism is on the internet.
- I suppose they think it makes reading more digestible?
- If you’re still reading this one, your persistence is truly worthy of admiration.
Screw it. Here’s to learning more in 2015!
