A Look Back At 2017

So, 2017 is almost history. We are going to start a new year, a whole new 365 days to do stuff and try and find happiness, success and love. A new year to revolve around our sun, the star that is essential to all life on our planet. A new year to get things done.

Or will it be a bad year? 2016 was a crappy year for some and 2017 was also crappy for some. For me it’s been a so-so year. I applied for a promotion and change in process at my place of work and went through the interview process and presentation round and I got it. I was informed that I was selected by the end of February and that I would stay in my current process till the end of March. So April 1st I start in a new post with a slightly better pay package and a small promotion.

Work has been fun at times though we have had some really long hours at work and fluctuating work shifts. I turned 41 in the middle of it and I really have started to feel the effects of late work hours on my body. I need more time to get ready and more time to relax as the late hours are beginning to take a toll on me.

I can’t think of personal things to talk about. I don’t think I have much of a personal life, other than going out, either alone or with a cousin, getting some good food and watching a few movies. I now prefer to spend my weekends at home and go out less. I hope I have some excitement coming my way soon. I could use some. Have a great 2018!
