RE: Things You Accomplished in 2014
I spent a lot of this year in Afghanistan, and it was the best learning experience I could ask for. I worked with more countries than I can remember, and my worldview just blew up. When I talk to people in the US I'm always guessing at what their heritage is, because those national stereotypes are just burned into my head now.

Plus, my boss was the best manager I've ever come across, and after watching that man play the game, I'm never worried about being able function in any other workplace.

I managed to go down to the Dominican Republic for two weeks, which was a great time. Besides the women, a personal highlight of mine was when I was leaving. They need to know if you're Dominican or another nationality when you're flying out, and when I walked up to the line, the girl said, "Dominicano? A donde vas?" I had to say, "No. I'm American." She got those huge surprise eyes, and was like, "I'm sorry! You have a very Dominican face!" I'm German-Irish, so it definitely wasn't my face. But, I put a lot of effort to watch and understand Dominican movements and gestures, so it was nice to know that I got it down (mainly so when I get lost in places like Los Alcarrizos, I can move like I belong).

I also got to spend a couple days in Romania. No bangs, but it was still fun. The place reminded me of a huge small town carnival, in a good way.

After I got back, I got my Concealed Carry Permit. It changes your whole outlook on situations, like riding a motorcycle does for driving. You're suddenly aware of everybody, and the little things just slide away. It seems that I'm getting a lot more positive reactions from people with that outlook, too.

Oh, and Dominican chicas inspired me to learn bachata, salsa, and merengue. Dancing bachata with a chick makes her so much hotter.
