littlemousling: Yarn with a Canadian dime for scale (Default)
Fourth year running (with partners) my law firm!

Lots of fun travel this year:
--MJ2015 in Boston was absolutely wonderful
--Visited my sister in Manhattan feat. some chemical-enhanced Magic Mike XXL viewing
--Saw TSwift in Jersey with her and @eloiserummaging \o/
--Visited Daufuskie Island with my bff, her husband, and some of their friends
--Lots of time with my parents and my sisters in my hometown

Great concerts, too:
--TSwift in Toronto with @eloiserummaging as well as the Jersey one
--One Direction in Toronto with @cantarina and in Buffalo with my sisters
--Tove Lo in Toronto with my friend A.
--Years & Years in Toronto with @cantarina, where I actually got to meet and chat with the band and be front and centre for the show :D

Lost Reggie, who was my first "adult" pet--I moved in 2008 so I could get a cat. He was a really good cat, y'all
Lucy, my dog, keeps getting better and better with time and work <333
Grimmy, the kitten (now probably to be referred to as "the cat") gets fuzzier and calmer every day

Knit less than in many prior years, but still a round half-dozen pairs of socks and some accessories
Managed one of my smoothest Christmas seasons ever, early gift-buying and all
Still on and off with guitar but still motivated to learn

Started a tumblr about Clean Bandit's violinist, because no one else had and that was a tragedy ;)
Wrote 150K of fic, including my longest one ever (54k)
Generally an up-and-down fandom year, but Star Wars (TFA) and Hamilton are new and exciting to watch develop

Intentionally slowed down my reading but still read 112 new books (and a lot of rereads)--found four new all-time favourites, my best year ever. Quality over quantity worked!
83 of them were library books (BLESS OVERDRIVE) and my year-on-year book spending dropped by 87%!
In fact, my year-on-year "shopping" spending dropped 71%, and I managed to save 56% of my take-home income. :D

Biked to work at least three or four days a week all through the warm season, which was awesome and had a remarkable and immediate impact on my gas consumption

Finally starting to get competent at some cooking in a way that lets me put together actual meals \o/ and sometimes even do mildly fancy things
Started writing down (in June) three "nice things" from each day ("took the dog to the park twice, had dinner with M., practiced guitar"), which has been lovely
In many ways felt like this was the year of establishing better habits and just inhabiting them: a half-hour dog walk first thing in the morning and first thing after work, bringing lunches to the office, making coffee, getting up at 5:30 on Sunday mornings to do laundry, etc

This is ridiculously long, considering I thought it was sort of a status-quo year! My status quo is getting better and better as I age <333333

Third year of running (with partners) my law firm
Hired a fantastic law clerk--we're about to make her full-time
Expanding to a much larger office where we can add up to three new associates
Managed the office when Partner S took a three-week trip
Got all my shit DONE for our holiday closure despite trial pressures

Argued two and a half trials totalling 15 days
Won the two complete ones
Won an order that still makes other family lawyers say "wait, WHAT?" from one trial
Innumerable motions and conferences as ever
Took on my first Hague Convention case
Filled in as staff family lawyer at my old clinic for most of the summer
Improved my efforts to bond with local lawyers--even got a holiday-party invite from one

Took a three-month part-time course in Dispute Resolution
Took a two-week course in Family Mediation
(Spent a goddamn fortune on the above)

Spent some fantastic time with my wonderful kid sister
Great family time in general: long weekend in a cottage near Kingston, Saturday in a hammock in my parents' backyard, wonderful Christmas break

Started seriously saving for retirement
Got serious disability insurance
Changed car insurance companies
Bought a dining table and chairs
Generally did a bunch of "aw shit I'm a real adult" things

Made another attempt at learning guitar (well, two more attempts) (I think it might stick this time)
Had a burst of sweater-finishing energy and can now wear several former WIPs
Managed the awards and trophies for the dog club
Volunteered with the literacy program for a spring and a fall session
Assisted a few dog classes

Read 175 new-to-me books and reread a few favourites
Attended my best friend's wedding
Spent a lovely weekend with her and her new husband in DC
Dated a dude for a while O_O that was a strange interlude in my life
Saw a Nine Inch Nails concert (did I mention the strange interlude?)

Saw One Direction two nights in a row ... again
Stayed obsessed with Nick
And with Harry and Zayn
Kiiinda dropped the other three
Developed a truly glorious love for Taylor Swift and her harem of pretty, pretty ladyfriends
