Looking over the last year, it started off rocky as I remained unemployed for a couple of months, but I did find work, and as a bonus I actually enjoy it.Â I’m working at a small company again, only this time the boss seems to know what he’s doing and things are progressing rather than collapsing.Â I’m still working on spending less and getting our budget under control, but I’ve also lost around twenty pounds and I’m floating around 194 and having trouble getting lower… looks like I might have to actually change my diet.
As far as gaming goes, I’ve canceled my last subscription MMO.Â I simply don’t have the available time to make $15 a month worth the price.Â Instead I’m playing some Free-to-Play games with micro transactions where that $15 makes for easily three or four months worth of play.
On the writing front, I failed the NaNoWriMo again, but made it further than I have before, and I completed a very short story, The Last Christmas, that I am quite proud of, enough that I posted it and plan to make revisions and keep working it.
In just about every way, 2009 has turned out to be a pretty good year.
I’m looking forward to 2010, but I’ll save that for tomorrow.Â For now let’s just send 2009 out in style…Â have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve!
