Happy New Year 2008
First, I want to wish everyone reading this journal a Happy New Year 2008, with the hope that the coming year is productive, enjoyable, and everything you hope it to be, and more.

My 2007 in review:

* Lost some really good local friends, as they moved on to bigger and better things. I have strengthened some of the friendships I have here in Austin, but I still wish I was better at meeting new people and making new friends. I think sometimes I irritate the crap out of the people I am close to--definitely things I need to resolve to work on in the new year.

* High point: going to AC 2007 and getting to meet Rob Paulsen and Carolyn Kelly. AC is always a very special time of year for me, but this one really stood out.

* Low point: having my supervisor at work turn psychopath and try to throw everyone around them under the bus to compensate for their inability to do their own job. I either need to find more suitable employment or stand my ground and force my current situation to change for the better. I really hate the thought of throwing away two-and-a-half years at a job I know in my heart I do very well.

* Hit the ten-year mark as a member of the furry fandom. Ten. Freaking. Years. Woof!

* Circumstances kept me from getting back to Ohio for the holidays this year, and that really sucked. I am going to do everything in my power to make sure this doesn't happen again next year.

* Got myself on a little more steady ground financially, and will work on having that continue.

* Had a couple health issues, but nothing I wasn't able to rectify quickly.

* Got some nice additions to my coin collection. o(:o)

Anticipating 2008:

* Barring any disaster, I will be attending my tenth consecutive Anthrocon this year. Do I get a medal? o(:o)

* I will continue improving my financial situation, including either improving my current employment or changing it entirely.

* I hope to either shit or get off the literary pot this year; I have what I think is a pretty strong idea for a novel, and I want to get a very good start underway on that in 2008.

* I hope to work on being a better friend and a better person--though this is difficult to do without any constructive feedback once in a while.

* Politically, I think 2008 will either be a very good or a very bad year; I can guarantee it will be interesting. I look at the disaster in the White House currently, and unfortunately see continued disaster if certain people get there (Hillary, Huckabee, or *shudder* Ron Paul). I really wish I was like the majority of this country and was politically unaware; I think my life would be much more peaceful. I want to be cautiously optimistic, but I fear this may be a year where I hold my nose and vote in a lesser-of-two-evils situation.

* Eat better, sleep better, feel better.

* Bigger, better coin collection. Last year for the state quarters!

* Other duties as assigned.

Happy New Year to you to. Hope your anticipations come true or something like that. ^^

Ten years in furry fandom! That's the skunk pelt anniversary, right?


Heh...either that, or good cause to have my head examined. o(:o)
