yearinreview

For the past 5 years or so I’ve been taking time to fill out this year end survey. 2014 really is no exception. The survey contains what I feel are the best and worst in everything from (As seen above) music to movies to even television and my personal life. Everything is based entirely on my opinion so feel free to disagree (but not in a cruel manner of course) and leave some comments with your best/worst of the year or take the survey for yourself and share it with me!

Worst Tv Show Of 2014: Glee..just end already
Worst Piece Of News 2014: I think there’s a majority of news I don’t even have to mention here because it goes without saying. None of it should be forgotten but in this space I won’t mention the severe injustices by individual headlines.

PERSONAL:

Did you have any resolutions? Did you break them? Keep them? No. Like I say every year, I make goals many of which were not reached or simply forgotten after months.
If you could change one thing about 2014, what would it be? I would be more calm, open, and understanding of those I surround myself with on a daily basis. I tend to not act as one should when under lots of stress.
What is the most memorable moment of 2014: Where We Are Tour
Who did you spend most of 2014 with? My best friend, Rachael and five loveable idiots
Where did you spend most of 2014? Phoenix, school, the car.
Have you changed alot since 2013? No. I think I continued the same growth pattern I started last year only just found more of who I am, where I want to go, and who should continue to be a part of that.
So, how is Nicole spending her last night of 2014?: Comfy clothes, bubbly drinks, and One Direction.

Best + Worst of 2013

It has become a yearly tradition over the last 3 years to share my favorite and least favorite things from this year. The things that gained my seal of approval over the last 365 days. You know, like Oprah’s favorite things or like a popular girl in high school setting trends. People look to me for what is cool and I’m just doing my duty to deliver.

That last part isn’t true, but let’s get to it!

Have you changed alot since 2012? I have and for the better. Nothing beats happiness and no one has the power to steal that from me anymore. I think that’s the most positive thing to come out of 2013. Standing up for what I want and what I believe in as well as taking chances.
So, how is Nicole spending her last night of 2013?: Partying like it’s 1999.
