Observations Reading Reflection

Year in (partial) Review.

One of my goals in 2015 was to post something here at least once a week, for a total of 52 entries. Including this one, I posted 48 entries this year. (I did not have a similar goal in 2014 and, as a consequence, I posted only 25 entries last year.)

The post I wrote this year that received the most views discussed whether people choose to be homeless.

The post from this year that came in second place for most views discussed the experience of grief.

The post that received the most views this year wasn’t even a post I wrote this year; it was a post from 2013 about the DSM-5 criteria for schizophrenia.

Another goal I had for 2015 was to read more books. I didn’t keep track of the number of books I read in 2014, but I think I read more books this year (23) simply because I had a goal. In addition to the books listed in the footnote here, I also read:

Stitches (Lamott)
Bossypants (Fey)
The Practicing Mind: Developing Focus and Discipline in Your Life (Sterner)
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (Angelou)
Boundary Spanning Leadership (Ernst) – not yet finished

I do recommend all of them, with the exception of the last one, only because I have yet to finish it.

Thank you for reading my writing this year, particularly those of you who have been reading my words and sentences for over ten years. See you in 2016.
