What Kind of Year Has It Been?

So. 2011.

I graduated university, moved out, went overseas, hit a convention, sold a story, got a part-time job, got fired from a part-time job, and started drinking scotch and black coffee (not together, mind).

Last year seemed like it was marked out by things coming to an end. This one was all about change. “Tumultuous” is the word I keep using. There’s almost nothing in my life right now that’s the same as it was twelve months ago. And for all the things that depressed me and made me feel like crap, it’s been good change. It’s been a good year.

I’m hoping this is part of a pattern. The old stuff comes to an end. Everything changes. And then everything settles into new stuff. So that’s why I’m not making New Year’s Resolutions, beyond the things I’ve been resolved to do since I had the vaguest semblance of self-awareness. Instead, I think 2012 is going to be about finding equilibrium. Finding a good groove and settling into it.

Happy New Year.
