Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

The Year of WTF

Just to recap, last year I saw my job prospects brighten, finished my first novel and got a pinched nerve as a going away present, had the bank take my job away, increased my freelance design work by an order of magnitude, relearned how to find a job, worked for the US Census as a midline manager, had my full novel critiqued, found a full time job that pays better than my old job (base salary, before OT), started retraining for a new career (and kept an A average), lost any free-time I had to edit the first novel, basically worked my little nubbies off, and have been dazed and confused ever since, lost and gained 30 pounds, been so tired I can barely see straight.

If we call it a year, will it go away.

Hopefully the new year will treat us all better.

Shawn, at least from reading the blogs of my friends, last year was a fairly exciting one, including yours. Hopefully those issues won't carry over into the new year.

Christine, thanks. And the same back to you.
