2014: In Review

Let's Frolic Together

I GOT MARRIED!

Thus I haven’t posted anything in a while. I had my url linked up to the wedding website for months and only just remembered to change it.

2014 was an incredible year. I learned a lot professionally. It was a big year with big ups and downs. I learned more about what I want to do with my life. My career is going in a direction I never would have thought but I’m still becoming the type of person I always wanted to be. Nothing is as I expected, and it’s wonderful.

My husband and I often think about how blown away our younger selves would be if they were told where we would be now. All I can say is I am living the life I hoped I would be living when I was a teenager. I don’t know what I did to be this lucky.

At some point, you have to just start

I thought I was at a turning point before. I thought things were changing. They were. But not at all in the way I thought. Not at all.

My name is Tori Altona and I am an intermittent blogger. I’ve grown up a lot since my last personal blog. I stopped writing for a while but at some point, if you want to write again, you have to just start. I typically have gone through the process of starting a blog, or posted once to a long forgotten one, on a momentous occasion like a birthday or a new year. Today is neither. Today is just a starting point.

I have some ideas for themes for daily posting. I know that daily posting is an ambitious goal and possibly more than I can actually tackle right now. I’m willing to give myself some leeway if you are. I also know that this is a launch post and practically nobody will read it. If you have read all of this, congratulations. You get a different balloon.
