I hope this last Tuesday of 2014 finds you well. Here are some of my current desires and distractions. 

1. Tips and tricks for making all of your 2015 resolutions a little easier. The overall messages I like, the obvious product-pushing at the end of each point, not so much. (Refinery29)
2. 12 Tidy Homes for New Year’s Clean-spiration. I need all the ideas I can get. (Design*Sponge) 
3. The perils of texting while walking and why we should all make resolutions to stop. (New York Times)
4. Brian and I spent a bulk of our time in my parents’ basement home theater and it was awesome. The movies themselves weren’t so great (Unbroken, Sex Tape, Blended, and Jersey Boys), so instead of picking the movies at random, next time, I’ll try to follow this list of movies to watch with your significant other. (Bustle)
5. Finally. Jay of Serial fame speaks in an exclusive interview. I don’t know what to think anymore! (The Intercept)
6. Ever since his epic 2009 mix, I’ve waited for DJ Earworm’s yearly pop mashups with much anticipation. Most years I’ve been disappointed because they come nowhere close to that first introduction, but the new 2014 edition sure is giving it a run for its money. I’m a big fan. (YouTube)
7. One Direction’s Night Changes is my song of the moment, and the video is pretty great too. Niall was already my favorite, but seeing him in that sweater, playing Monopoly really truly sealed the deal for me. (Vevo)
8. To end things on a high note, here are 26 charts and maps that show the world is getting much, much better. You did good, 2014. (Vox)

    regarding new year’s resolutions in that article, i know that the two that will definitely happen for you are: travel more (although it will be hard to top all of the traveling you did in 2014!) and land a better job :)

    please tell me you’ve both watched edward scissorhands! it’s my most favorite johnny depp role. silver linings playbook is also pretty good.

    a bunch of my friends from the forensic psych program have recommended serial to me, but i haven’t caught on yet. hopefully one day soon.

    i love the charts from vox, thanks for sharing those!
