reverb14 is a prompt-a-day series for the month of December designed to reflect on 2014 and project on hopes and dreams for 2015.  Through December 31st Meredith, Kat and Sarah will post each day with a new prompt. I’m doing it too, though as you can tell I usually post in a cluster versus daily. Join us by writing, or join us by reading.  Follow on Twitter @project_reverb and hashtag #reverb14.  Let’s reverb.

 

December 4, 2014
Do Over | Hindsight is the one thing we never benefit from in the present.  Is there one moment you wish that you could do-over?

My wedding day – 100%. I only say that because it was everything that I wanted it to be and more. I wish I could relive it again. The only part hindsight could play in my wedding was that I wish I talked to every single guest. How I didn’t manage to, I’m not really sure, but I know that I didn’t. Everything was such a blur, even if it all was a wonderful blur. I loved everything about my wedding, and it seems so unfortunate that it’s over now.

 

December 5, 2014
Letting go | For next year, I’m letting go of…

Gosh, I’m not sure. I think the only possible thing I could think of was to be more productive during the work day so that I work less at home. I’m not required to do any work on non-work time, which is why it’s really nothing to complain about. I just find myself spending a lot of time at home looking over my work. I want to be more present with my family, so I’m going to let go of the constant need to work in the new year.

 

December 6, 2014
Money | Where did you spend your money this year?  Did you save it instead?  What, if anything, would you like to do with your finances this year?

This year I paid off my student loans. I still can’t believe I no longer owe money for my BA or MFA to the government, but I don’t! It was a big decision that I don’t even know if I was ready to make at the time, but I’m forever grateful that my loans are gone, and I don’t have to worry about paying them anymore. Now to focus on saving for a house and other future goals.

 

December 7, 2014
Victory Laps | What was your biggest accomplishment this year?

Maintaining sanity while still being easy-going about things. I planned a wedding in 8 months, six of which were in 2014, and switched careers about three weeks before my wedding. Needless to say, that could have been an immensely stressful situation for me, but I just kept focusing on the tasks at hand and not worrying too much about the big picture. I knew my main goal was to be married at the end of the day and accepted that whatever happened until then wouldn’t change that I’d soon be Mrs. O. This was a great attitude to have as it kept me really relaxed.

 

December 8, 2014
Hero | Who was your hero this year? Tell us why. What makes a hero in your eyes?

I think heroes can come in various shapes, sizes, and molds. There is no one thing that makes a hero in my eyes. A hero could have a million traits that I admire. I think for 2014, I’ll have to say that my husband is my hero. He’s stepped out of his comfort zone, and embraced many changes. He is always willing to split all of our responsibilities, and in fact he always goes a step beyond. I’m very lucky to have him in my life.

 

December 9, 2014
The Plank | It has been said that you must learn to take care of yourself before you can be effective at taking care of others.  How did you take care of yourself in 2014?  How will you take care of yourself in 2015?

I think I learned a lot this year about taking care of myself, and I’d really like to keep the habits going into the new year. I integrated walking more regularly into my life. I hope that in 2015 it will become a regular habit versus a more random, binge habit.

 

December 10, 2014
Leap of faith | What decision did you make this year that was a leap of faith?  Did it work out?  Or not?

Changing careers was my biggest leap of faith in 2014. While I didn’t plan on making a career in human resources, it was certainly easy for me to stay in the profession. I have twelve years of it under my belt, and I am ver grateful for all that I learned during my time in HR. Writing was always my main goal, and it’s wonderful to work in the industry now, but it was a big ol’ leap for me. Things are working out pretty well, and I’m glad I made the decision to change jobs, even if it was just a few weeks before my wedding.

 

December 11, 2014
Small Pleasures | What small pleasures did you discover this year?

I wouldn’t say that I discovered pho this year (that was in 2011 for me) but I definitely discovered that not having it as a regular meal in my life makes me sad. Mr. O and I were fortunate to live near an excellent restaurant that made great pho. The lady who owned it was a sweetheart, but after so many years of owning the place, she sold it. The new owners (while armed with her recipes) didn’t make food that was as good and as of right now, it is temporarily closed. So I went a few months without pho, and I didn’t like it. The good news is that there is a great place down the street from my work, so I’m back to my pho habit.

December 1, 2014
At the start | Where did you start 2014? Give us some background on this year. 

2014 was a beautiful year for me. Probably the best of my entire life. I started it engaged to the man I love, and cheered in the new year playing board games, video games, and watching the ball drop with him and Mr. O. It was my last year with a real Christmas tree (we have unfortunately bought an artificial tree this year) and it was still up. My nephew was just turning six, and a niece was just turning one. It was cold in Massachusetts, and I was already ready for the spring. I was working at my previous job, and we were getting ready for our big benefit fairs. The O family was planning on a ski trip at the end of January. It was a great start to the year.

 

December 2, 2014
Gorgeous | When did you feel beautiful this year? Why?

This is an easy one for me. I kind of feel like I’m cheating with this answer, but I felt most beautiful at my wedding. It wasn’t about the hair or the makeup or the dress or the veil. It was just that I was so happy, and so shockingly easy going about the whole day, and I felt so wonderful. I really loved committing myself to Mr. O in front of all of our family and friends. That all being said, having the opportunity to now look back on the photographs we have, I also looked beautiful. It was better than anything I could have imagined for my wedding day.

December 3, 2014
Coulda Woulda Shoulda | What didn’t you do this year because you were too scared, afraid, unsure? Are you going to do it next year? Or maybe you don’t want to anymore?
I don’t want to cop out on this one, but I’m not sure I would have done anything differently in 2014. Pretty huge things happened for me this year. I planned a wedding, changed careers, got married, honeymooned, and turned 30! All of the risks I took were worth it, and in the long run, I think I was really brave this year. The only things I can reminisce on are tiny, minute details that really don’t matter in the long run. There were a few wedding projects I scrapped last minute because I was running out of time, and I didn’t want to be stressed by another project. If I had more time, maybe I would have finished them. I also could have kept a little more up-to-date with my Project Life scrapbooking. But like I said, none of these matter in the grand scheme of life.

Reverb Catch Up: Days 29-31

Prompt for December 29:  Try.  What do you want to try this coming year?  Is it something that has been on the bucket list for a while, or is it something you swore up and down to others you’d never, ever do?  What new waters – those uncharted or those well-navigated – will you dip your toes into this year?

I will literally be dipping my toes into the Massachusetts water this year. I did my first Polar Bear Plunge in 2011 in Connecticut. In 2012, I plunged in Rhode Island. This year, I’ve decided to jump in the cold Massachusetts water. What will I do in 2014? Who knows? I highly doubt I’ll drive to a different state to plunge. But I feel pretty excited to have done three different states for my first three plunges.

There is so many things I want to try in 2013. I really want to start teaching at the college level. That is one of the biggest items on my wish list for the coming year. But in all honesty, I just want to embrace any new opportunity to come my way. I want to experience my life in 2013. I want to take risks; I want to play it safe. But in all that I do. I want to LIVE it. So anything that comes my way, I want to be game to try it.

Prompt for December 30:  Undone.   Bucket Lists, To Do Lists.  Always crossing things off.  2012 is almost over, what is still left standing?

The first thing that comes to mind is organizing, work  and communication. There is a lot I want to sort through and organize at home: school stuff, apartment stuff, clothing, crafts, everything. I have so much to do at work, and I’m sure it won’t be completed by the end of the workday today. Who knows though, maybe when I get it I’ll develop some wild motivation and skills I didn’t know I had. There are emails I need to send to friends, especially the ones I need to respond to. I want to be better with my communication in this coming year.

Prompt for December 31: Clean Slate: Tomorrow begins a new year.  What will you do with your new beginning?

Have I mentioned how much I love new beginnings? Because I do. As much as 2012 brought me many great things (my MFA, Spry Literary Journal, living with my guys), it was a difficult year for me. At the beginning of 2012 a lot of bad stuff was happening to people in my life. I found myself regularly saying, “I’m ready for 2013.” Well, now, that time is here, and I’m okay with it. In my own personal life, 2012 was a nice year. I feel bad for not “liking” the year more because of all the great experiences I did have. I’m certainly grateful for all the great moments in this year. I’m just ready for 2013. I have some big hopes and dreams for this year. Will they come true? Who knows. I just know that I’ve written them all down and will promise to share it with you if they do happen.

I wish you all a beautiful 2013. May this year bring everyone luck and happiness. I’m thankful to have you guys around while I document my life, and I’m thankful for those who include me in their lives too. I’m really grateful for all the blessings 2012 brought me. Here’s to new, wonderful moments in 2013.

Reverb 2012 Catch Up: Days 21-28

Prompt for December 21:  Look.  Sometimes you are left standing on the outside looking in.  As you stood there, on the other side of the glass, were you thankful for the boundary?  Or do you wish you could’ve been on the action-side?

No, I don’t think I would have changed anything in this regard for 2012. Sometimes when I was super busy with school, I wished I could have been more involved in the social things happening around me, like spending time with friends or other activities. Looking back, I know that I wouldn’t have been able to do both successfully. There were a few projects that I would have liked to be involved with, but the same thing goes; I’m already over-involved. To get tangled up in more would have been too consuming. I haven’t worked at my second job as a residential case manager for adults with psychiatric issues this whole year– this was a touch one for me, because I really did (and still do) miss my clients. But I had to draw the line somewhere. I needed the time to finish schoolwork and actually be around my family. I think I was standing exactly where I should be to be successful in the ways I was in 2012.

Prompt for December 22:  Song.  What has been your theme song this year?  Have there been several?  Make us a mix tape and tell us the meaning behind it.

I don’t think I’ve had a theme song for 2013. When I think back over the year, the music that stands out are more recent finds: fun and Alex Clare. I also listened to a lot of Adele, Anthony Hamilton, TI, Michael Buble and John Legend.

Prompt for December 23:  Appreciate.  For what did you find a new appreciation this year?

Time to do nothing. This was a very busy, time-consuming year for me. So I really cherished those moments that I could just lay down and do nothing or zone out in the midst of bad television. This isn’t a normal statement from me, but I did cherish this time.  I also cherished moments when I was cooking, especially when trying new recipes.

Prompt for December 24:  Change of heart.  Did you have a change of heart about something or someone in your life this year?  What or who was it?  Why?

I don’t know if I’ve necessarily had a change of heart. I think I’ve just had a bit of a shift of attitude. I can’t accomplish everything and I certainly can’t please everyone either. I think I’ve just chose to try to accept that and deal with it situationally. I know there have been people I’ve let down in small ways, and there are also people who let me down in small ways. Nothing drastic. Every relationship- coworkers, friends, etc grows and expands and changes over time. I’m just very grateful for the people who are in my life.

Prompt for December 25:  Traditions.  Do you follow old traditions or do you work to create new traditions?  What role has tradition played in your life over the past year?  Are there traditions you hope to create or embrace in 2013?

I love traditions. I really, really do. I think one big thing I learned in my 20’s is how much I do love celebrating and honoring traditions and cultivating new ones. I don’t think I appreciated tradition before my 20’s (as much as I do now), but every year I seem to grow more grateful for them. I think that’s why I enjoy holidays so much, because they all have some type of tradition associated with them: a new year means I’ll be doing the Polar Bear Plunge; we relive our first date on our anniversary, Valentine’s day we eat lobster at home, Father’s Day we update Mr. O’s scrapbook Wolverine and I made him in 2011; camping in the summer, decorating our tree for Christmas and getting new ornaments every year. Mentioning what we are thankful for at dinner time. I’ve left a lot off this list, but I do love traditions.

Prompt for December 26:  Typical day.  Describe a typical day in your life.  What do you think would surprise most people about your ordinary day?  How do you cherish and appreciate the everyday?

My ordinary life is just that: ordinary. I wake up when Mr. O goes to work and steal a hug and a kiss before he leaves (and Wolverine too if it is a morning we have him before school.) Then I lay back down and fall asleep for another 20 or 30 minutes before I need to get up and go to work. I’m almost always a few minutes late for work every day, which is why I should never ever lay back down after Mr. O leaves. I developed the habit in mid-to-late 2012 to make my own coffee in the morning which is saving me loads of money. At work, I do work-type stuff. I work late and then head home. My nights usually consist of cooking dinner and relaxing with Mr. O and Wolverine. For the first half of the year, I did a lot of schoolwork at nights and the second half of the year I did a lot of Spry-stuff at night. My weekends are a blur of cleaning and kid-related activities. They are usually tiring but loads of fun….and repeat and repeat.

Prompt for December 27:  Hidden talent.  Do you have a hidden talent?  Dazzle us.

Hmm. I’m a pretty good parallel parking. I didn’t learn that in 2012 though. I make a mean Chicken Mozambique. I think perfected that this year, though I started to attempt the recipe in 2011.

Prompt for December 28:  All grown up.  What did you want to be when you grew up?  Are you that thing?  If not, are you working to become it, or have you chosen a completely different path?

Oh, good questions. Am I what I wanted to be when I grew up? No, not right now. Am I close to it? Well, maybe. Growing up, I wanted to be everything. I wanted to be a singer, a teacher, a writer, a mother, a wife, the president, an astronaut, you name it. If it sounded like a challenge, I wanted in. I no longer wish to be an astronaut or the president. I’m certainly not a famous singer, though I do sing quite a bit in the car. I just graduated and that opens the door to be able to teach at the university-level. I wrote a thesis this year, so I think that makes me a writer. I’m not a real mother or wife yet, but I’m helping my boyfriend parent his incredible child, and THAT my friends is one of my favorite things in life. The role I play in Mr. O and Wolverine’s life. I think I’m very close to being at the place I though I wanted to be as a child. Right now though, I’m exactly where I am supposed to be in life….and that feels good.

Reverb Catch Up 2012: Days 11-20

Prompt for December 11:  Small pleasures.  What small pleasures did you discover this year?

Is food a small pleasure? I pretty much live for pho. I eat it weekly and it makes me so happy every time I have it for dinner. Another small pleasure? Introducing people to pho (my parents, sibling, friends) and having them fall in love with it. Besides food (everything I want to add to this list seems to revolve around food), I love cuddling before bed and morning goodbye hugs and kisses (though I’d much rather just cuddle in bed then be separated by work!). I love reading at night with Wolverine. Small pleasures for me are in the little moments.

Prompt for December 12: Unexpected passion.  What new hobby or interest piqued your passion this year?  Or did you think about an old passion in a new way?

Project Life was something I really embraced and enjoyed this year. So I guess it is a new and old passion at the same time. I’ve always liked scrapbooking, but never really delved into it. Now that I do weekly spreads with my Project Life binder, I find myself being more and more graphically creative. Creating a literary journal took a lot of dedication and passion. I’m glad Linsey and I really put ourselves into this project and think Spry will have a great successful future. Finally, finishing my thesis. Getting my MFA from Fairfield University was one of the best choices I’ve ever made in life. Being a graduate student is never easy, especially when you are a procrastinator with a lot of work to do to finish a thesis. I was fortunate to have the best faculty and students to help me through that process.

Prompt for December 13:  Do-over. Of the things that happened this year, if you had the chance to do X all over again, what would it be?

Residencies at school. There is a big part of my heart that is really missing this current residency which started today. I know I will be there a few days this residency (alumni day, watch my MFA little sis do her student reading and graduation!) In 2012 I attended two full residencies. I’ve always loved being away at school, but I’ve always been a but whiney about missing Mr. O and Wolverine while I’m away. And then in July, at my graduation residency, my father had a heart attack, and my head and heart seemed to be in two different places. I’m pretty jealous of the students who get to spend 10 glorious, yet exhausting, insanely-creative days on an island with other writers. I wish I could do it again.

Prompt for December 14: Family.  Did your role in the family shift or change over the past year?  How?  Why?

I love my family. The biggest change in my most immediate family (Mr. O, Wolverine and I) is that we now all live together. So yes, in some ways my role shifted. It has been a nice transition living with my guys. We love spending time together, and I look forward to every moment we have together.

Prompt for December 15:  Friendship.  What was it like for you to be a friend to others this year?  Did you rekindle an old friendship?  Strengthen a current friendship?  Make friends with someone you didn’t think was “your type?”

2012 was an odd year for friendships. Lots of stuff happened in all of our lives this year. Friends had babies, others were in graduate school, some were buying houses, etc. I can’t quite say that I spent an extreme amount of quality time with my friends, but I did enjoy every second that we did spend together. Here’s hoping we get more chances to be together in 2013.

Prompt for December 16:  Choice.  Being an adult means making your own choices.  What choices were the hardest to make this year?

Choices. Hmm. I don’t know if there really were any difficult choices to make this year. Naming my thesis wasn’t easy for me, but I’m quite pleased with the end result. I wasn’t sure whether or not I should have a tiny medical procedure, but I did and it went well. That’s all I can think of! I honestly think the most difficult decision was simply what to eat for dinner, especially on date nights. Mr. O and I think about food a lot.

Prompt for December 17:  Surprise.  The most surprising thing that happened this year was…

My dad had a heart attack while I was away at school for my graduation residency. My dad is a pretty healthy guy, and while he does work a bit too hard (which I’m sure leads to stress), I certainly did not think he would have a sudden heart attack. It was sad and scary, but I’m so grateful that he is doing really well and taking great care of himself.

Prompt for December 18:  1000 words.  There’s the old saying that a photo is worth 1,000 words.  Give us a photo with that impact that sums up some significant event of your 2012, or give us 1000 words about a pivotal moment in 2012.

 20120813-133105.jpgI graduated from my MFA program!

Prompt for December 19:  Crap.  What was just absolute rubbish for you this year?  What would you do to change that? Describe something, or some moment, that was just hopelessly awful, and tell us how it could (or could not) be made better.

I’m not sure that either of these moments could be made any better. The only way they could have been better was if they didn’t happen. I think the crappiest moments in 2012 were when my boss’s husband and Mr. O’s grandfather died. I was completely devastated for my boss, someone I’ve known and worked one on one with since I was seventeen. She and her husband loved each other deeply, and I still can’t quite wrap my brain around the situation. I think it’s bullshit that he passed away. Same goes with Mr. O’s grandfather. He had been suffering for a while, so I’m glad that he is no longer in pain, but I just wish some things were different.

Prompt for December 20:  Stuff and things.  What products have you discovered this year that you love?  Tell us all about them, and why you love them.  Become the celebrity spokesperson of whatever it is you like!

Project Life, Hershey’s Cookies and Cream chocolates, Netlix, Xbox, Apsara, Pinterest, Spry Lit, Del’s Lemonade, Grapefruit.

Reverb 2012 Catch Up: Days 1-10

I’m a little late on the Reverb 2012 bandwagon, seeing as there are only a few days left in the month and I haven’t completed any of December’s daily prompts. (If you want to know more about Reverb, here is a great introduction by Sarah.) But I love many of the prompts so I’m going to try to answer some and reflect on my year.

Prompt for December 1: Where it began.  Review and reflect – how did 2012 begin for you?  Tell us how the year kicked off; start your renewal by beginning again.

2012 began for me in Mr. O’s old apartment with him and Wolverine. We played some games, stood up late, watched some Super Hero Squad cuddled up in bed and fell asleep early. I set an alarm for 11:45 though, and Mr. O and I woke up, watched the ball drop, shared a New Year’s kiss and fell back asleep shortly after. It was a great night spent cuddled by the Christmas tree and in bed. The next morning, we met up with our friends in Portsmouth, RI and Polar Bear Plunged! It was Mr. O and his friend’s first time and my second. I am a strong believer that plunging into the cold water on the first is a perfect way to begin a new year.

Prompt for December 2: Help.  Asking for help can be the hardest thing we ever do.  When and how did you ask for help?  Alternatively, did someone ask you for help, and how did it play out for you?

2012 was a year that I needed a lot of help, and I think I gave a lot of help as well. However, most of this help was unspoken. Mr. O took the lead when it came to cooking and cleaning in the final months of my thesis. When he was stressed, I tried to step up more. I had to pick up a lot more at work. Creating Spry was a collaboration between myself and Linsey. There was a lot tn general that would have been unsuccessful if it weren’t for teamwork in 2012.

Prompt for December 3: Beautiful things.  What brought beauty into your life this year?  Was it a tangible thing or something intangible?  Tell us about it in detail.

Beauty for me was being around my guys, my family, my MFA colleagues and my friends. I am so lucky to have such incredible people in my life. Beauty is all my friends’ babies who were born in 2012. Beauty was in Christmas trees and birthday parties and vacation. 2012 was very beautiful.

Prompt for December 4:  Place.  What places anchored you this year?  Or were you in search of new places and spaces to call your own and call home?  Describe the place you love and why it means so much to you.

Place was big in 2012. The biggest place for me this year was moving in with Mr. O, which has been a blessing. We cohabitate nicely and I wouldn’t change a single thing about it. I love waking up and falling asleep near my love. I love living with Wolverine and enjoying all the time we have with him. The only thing I could wish for in 2013 is that we are fortunate to find and purchase a house that we love. We started looking for houses in 2011 and after a few unsuccessful attempts to purchase, we haven’t found “our” home. We’ve made a home for ourselves in the apartment, but its a bit cramped, and I’d love to have a bigger home to call our own. That all being said, our housing situation has been incredible and I’m so fortunate to live where we do. There have been a few other places that stick out in 2012. We went on a few vacations: North Conway, NH, Washington DC, Northern Virginia, Plymouth, MA. Ender’s Island will always be a special place for me as that is where all my graduate school residencies were held.

Prompt for December 5:  Letting go.  For the next year, I’m letting go of…

Gosh, I just don’t know. This is a tough one for me. The first thought that popped into my head was stress, but that is unrealistic as stress will always be in every one of our lives… It’s how we handle it that makes a difference. I think that in 2013, I’m going to let go of my anxiety about working out. I’ve been working on exercising for the past few months, but I never try hard enough. I hate feeling uncomfortable in my clothing, and there is no time like the present to do something to change it. It isn’t just that I want to lose weight, I also want to have healthier routines. I need to incorporate exercise into my daily rituals. In 2013, I will let go of the extra baggage I’ve stored on my body, and let go of this mental block I have surrounding working out.

Prompt for December 6: Intention.  What were some of your mantras from 2012 and how did you come by them?  Will they remain the same for the next year – if not, what new ones will you set?

I guess my unspoken mantra for 2012 was “this will all get done.” 2012 was a crazy busy year between school, work, Spry and life in general. There were so many times (at least once a month, probably) that I truly thought I wouldn’t be able to pull through whatever it was I was currently working on. I didn’t think I’d finish my thesis: I did. I didn’t think I’d finish my graduation speech: I did. I didn’t think I’d get all my other school stuff done: I did. I didn’t think I’d publish Spry in 2012: I did. Basically, I just kept reminding myself that no matter what, things have a way of working themselves out.

I didn’t have a word for 2012. This is one big thing I will change for 2013. I had a word for 2011 and it was a great year. While I didn’t pick a word at the beginning of 2010, I did name it at the end, and that too was a great year. In some ways 2012 was incredible, in other ways it was trying. I’d like to follow 2011’s example in 2013, so I do plan on picking a word to live by next year.

Prompt for December 7: Feast.  Hopefully you’ve had more than one spectacular meal in 2012, but what is the first one that comes to mind?  Were you surrounded by family at the dining room table?  Sitting on a bench by the lake?  Bring us there.

2012 was quite a feast. If there is one way Mr. O and I spend (and save) our money, it’s on food. We love eating out and cooking in. Our food of the year will definitely be pho (and dumplings and sushi and desserts)… though I’m sure that answer would have worked for 2011 and in the future. We cooked new recipes and are really excited to continue trying new food in 2013.

Prompt for December 8.  Art.  What was the most moving piece of art that you saw/experienced this year?  This could mean a painting or a sculpture, or a performance you took in, or even a book that you read – tell us about the kind of art you encountered, and the way that it moved you.

Spry! Spry was every possible beauty in 2012. It started out as a concept, a possibility. It was a creative endeavour that Linsey, our staff and I worked so hard to bring to life. And now… Spry is alive. The literary journal’s first issue is beautiful and everything we could ever dreamed up. We are beginning to work on issue #2 and I’m so grateful to see Spry thrive.

Prompt for December 9:  The Plank.  It has been said that you must learn to take care of yourself before you can be effective at taking care of others.  How did you take care of yourself in 2012?  How will you take care of yourself in 2013?

Gosh. I think I did a lot of maintaining in 2012. I did a great job with my health by making and attending doctor’s appointments. Taking sick days when I was actually sick. I obviously will continue to do that in 2013. I hope to find more time to relax, because I feel better emotionally and physically when I’m calm and relaxed. I think a lot of this will be helped by being better organized and creating new routines.

Prompt for December 10:  Scars.  They leave marks, and sometimes you can only take what you can carry.  What will you, by choice or by chance, carry into 2013?

2012 brought me a new scar after a small procedure that I’ll always carry with me, and I’m okay with that. To me, the scar symbolizes health, and I think it is a nice reminder for the future.
