Short Term Retrospective|
I'm not going to talk about the past ten years -- it's more than a third of my life, and that much is hard to grapple with (the starting-2000 me hadn't yet picked a major, was considering serious research as a life choice, and didn't really see anything beyond deciding where his schooling was going). I'm not even going to talk about the last year -- it kind of sucked, in a few, mostly related, ways (the only good thing to say about was it was my first calendar year admitted).
What I would like to talk about is how 2009 ended on, in pretty much every way, up-notes for my life.
Employment outlook warming up.
The sword and doom hanging over me all of 2009 was removed (it lasted almost exactly one year, having come fully into existence in mid-December 2008, and ending the last week of 2009).
I faced a soul-destroying, evil-endorsing, "self-help" program that sought to make me hate myself so I'd be someone else (who would then pay them money after money after money to be that new self harder), and came away pleased with myself and with a new confidence and consciousness about why I do the things I do.
Closed out some financial matters.
Current Mood: awake
