Dear 2014,

You were one of those years that I didn’t have much expectations about. I only had one goal in mind at the beginning of you, which is to be present. It was a goal that seemed simple enough but I knew would be challenging to do because I have been on the constant chase for the next big opportunity. Yet, you proved to be one year full of activities:

  • Got Owly on the Mashable’s wrecking ball
