2013 was a weird year for me in many respects. In large part, it feels defined by the things that didn't happen -- I didn't find a job, I didn't travel really (just a few local trips), or get any substantial projects done. I look back and wonder where it all went. I don't do New Year's resolutions really, but I do plan to take better charge of my time in 2014. Give myself a schedule, and go ahead and give myself permission to make long-term plans (for travel, for writing, for personal and home improvement projects, for figuring out my random nagging health issues*) regardless of what happens with the job situation. Once I find a permanent job, then I'll adjust. No more waiting around for things that are out of my control.
I wish everyone a happy, healthy, and secure 2014. Even if I haven't been around these parts as much lately, I still consider all of you here in journal-land to be my online community, and I'm so, so glad to have you. :)
*No, you aren't missing anything; for the most part, I haven't written about those here. I've been to doctors and don't think it's anything serious. Mostly little nagging things, that I hope taking better care of myself will improve. If it doesn't, then back to the doctor I go.
