It’s been two days and I’ve already had a lot happen this year! Today I celebrated both my birthday and my last day at work. Often people ask “what do you plan on doing this year?” or “what’s your resolution at this age?”, and for me, I can’t go twice at it. With the start of the year and my birthday being a day apart, I only get to reinvent myself once a year.

On that note though, I have a lot to look forward to this year, starting with school on the 13th of this month. I’m excited, but mostly nervous too.

At work my boss made a giant poster of me and hung it in the kitchen as a farewell gesture. Unfortunately I look like Gollum in it, but that’s alright.



At work we did the Movember challenge. I think it turned out pretty well. I’ve been doing it since 2010 and only recently have joined the official site. It’s a visible way to raise awareness to a good cause. Both my parents had cancer, so I’m doing what I can. I’m dreading the routine checkups that are required, but I’m at least a few years away from that, I think.
