365 days is both a lot and a little. 525,600 minutes make up a year, at least according to Google that's a pretty large number. It's also 12 months, with 4 seasons. Out of a 70 year life, which is about the average life expectancy those numbers get smaller though. 70 years are 25,550 days and 613,200 hours.
So that's one year broken down in some numbers. In a way, a single year can be insignificant but it is also chalk full of opportunity. I don't put much stock into New Years resolutions but that may be the closest I get for '16 - just to see the opportunities that I have and take advantage of them. I've had plenty of fun this year and made some good memories but I'm sure I missed some opportunities as well. So here's to doing better in the next 525,600 minutes.
As has seemed to become my custom I'm going to go ahead and do my review of the year, after the jump!

Chapter 1.?

When I started this blog, back in September 2010, it was mostly about what was going on with me on the regular in school then it morphed and became about internship primarily. Well then my life kinda flipped and I had a lot less to write about and really didn't feel like writing about my life. Well in recent months it became about what I was seeing and thinking about, again. Kinda went full circle on that and I think the circle or cycle to be more accurate is continuing on.
Post jump it's going to be a short post, I think, but since I like to keep track of reading numbers I'm going to go with anyway.

Word(s) of the year

As I'm sure many of you are aware, there's a thing that happens each year at this time, people try to figure out a word for the coming year. Something related to a goal or a piece of information that they feel confident about going into the next year.
And while I am not going to disparage that practice because it's important to have goals and a single word can potentially encapsulate that, I'm going a different direction with this. A word that I think describes my 2015.

That and more after the break!

I can't say I know exactly how to approach this one, but I do know what I want to say, hopefully I can say it the best way possible.
I started thinking about this a few weeks ago, after someone said to me that they aren't "religious." It sparked a series of thoughts about what it means to be religious. What is religion. What damage may have been done to those who consider themselves non-religious, by those who practice the various world religions.
Now for those who are picky about grammar, I chose not to use the question marks because I don't want any answers to those questions here but wanted to demonstrate some of my specific questioning thoughts.
I think that's enough of a lead in so jump time!
