Here's To 2014; I hope it's serene!
Life delivered some heavy lessons, not just about the world and everything encased in it, but this blog, writing, creativity, and more dreamy ideals. I did a lot, missed a lot, and managed to keep moving along - this makes the new year terrifying and exciting.
I can't recall if before the age of 13 I ever really devoted much attention (or intention) for goal-making or passing milestones. Sitting in front of the Dick Clark New Years' Eve Special in my living room, and watching the excitement roar at Times Square, I just wanted some fried shrimp and more raspberry ginger ale that I boozed on like alcohol. Now that I am a bit older, and know that life can and will expand it's proportions according to one's courage and consumption of shrimp, in this moment I don't seem to have a lot of goals for The Drama Llama. I hope to just take it one crazy scheme at a time with even more reviews, "off topic" sharing, Eternal Crushes, Scene Stealers, and Reconsiderations.
What I'm trying to say very inarticulately is that time is a fragile and beautiful thing to behold. Through 2014, as bloggers - but I think more importantly as people, not just social media twitterers or tumblrers - I hope we can all take advantage of every day. Whether it means being with friends, or seeing glorious or gloriously bad movies, working or going to school, I hope everything is how you'd like it to be this time around in 2015; delicious laughter, good cries, popcorn babies, ranting reviews, and good praise.
Thank you to everyone who has found my little corner of the internet through Google, or from me incessantly stalking you on your own blog and social media until you gave in and gave me a visit; Margaret, Ruth, Chris, Sofia, Mettel, Elina, Mariah, Alex, Courtney, Andrew Ellington and Ryan.
Thank you to everyone who has participated so far in my Alphabet Movie Meme! It started out as a creation I made over time because the internet seemed to lack fun movie challenges. It's been absolutely fun and a such a tender touch to see everyone's individual picks. I did my best to link those who have taken part, and will continue to do so in the new year.
For Everyone's 2014: “May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself. ” - Neil Gaiman
