1. tales of new year’s festivities
I took the afternoon off to watch TCU kick the crap out of Ole Miss, napped through Boise’s win, and then enjoyed the hell out of Georgia Tech whooping on Mississippi State, while eating half a wedge of brie, pantsless, in bed.
2. accounting for some unfinished business
are we outta the woods yet / are we outta the woods yet
3. envisioning the year ahead
Trav is moving into my house in 21 days. We’re going to kick each other’s asses and laugh a lot and throw dinner parties and make great art and go see the women’s basketball team and go to his best friend’s wedding. I’m going to write more and shoot more and go to Texas to go to Marfa with Allie again. I’m going to start leaving the house again. I’m going to watch a lot of baseball. I’m gonna be in love.
4. any sort of resolutions
Shoot Tay Tay.
5. an extended and unfortunately eloquent harangue
2014, you were a dumpster fire of a miserable wretched year. 2014, I fell in love with my best friend in the world all over again during you. Go die in a fire, and thanks.
6. a final thought composed in silence
’cause others may know where you’re going / but honey, i know where you’ve from
I remain, as always, grateful for Travis, the goddamn love of my life, my favorite person, who is weird enough to want to spend the rest of his life with me. And also for shep., the axis, Allie, Adam and Sheila, all my fandom girls from all over, Nikon lenses, press passes, the back room at the Cradle, Josh Ritter and Mason Jennings and Frank Turner, the college football playoff, my house, live music, swimming pools both full and empty, running, the Shutdown Fullcast and the Right Reasons, naps, and beer.
