And so the year comes to an end. What a strange year this has been; definitely the strangest in my life.
The employment situation has not been too positive this year. The economy sucks, and shifting jobs at work to follow suit has not been pleasant.
Still, I'm resourceful and the positives outnumber the negatives by a long shot. To list just a few off the top of my head: finding love, traveling to Korea, traveling to Jamaica, learning to scuba dive, establishing a sci-fi model parts company, and significantly expanding my programming skills.
What can I say? It's been a great year for variety. Even with the lousy times, there have still been four enjoyable opportunities to travel. The void in my heart has been filled, it's changed me, and my family swears they prefer me this way. Long story short, I'm hands-down better off than a year ago.
So yes, I will truly celebrate the end of this year, and bring in the next with a smile, looking forward to all that is to come.
