A Year in Review


I forgot to write a subtitle

There are plenty of things that I wanted to do in 2013 that I failed to do, but I have already decided that I’m not going to beat myself up about it.  It’s 2014 now, and this is another year in which I can get things done.  That’s what today is for: to do all the stuff we didn’t get to yesterday.  Instead, I’m going to focus on the things that I did well.

  • I posted thirty entries on this blog.  

That is only a little more than half of the 52 weekly entries I intended, but it’s also nearly twice my number of entries per month from the previous year.  As far as I’m concerned, that’s something to be celebrated.  And even better, I have another set of 52 weeks ahead of me (barring the unforseen…) to fill with blog entries.

  • I kept off most of the weight I lost the other year.  

I realize that this is sort of old news by now, but given how significant the weight loss was for me, I’m happy to celebrate any year that I don’t end up weighing over 200 pounds again.  This is not to say that I didn’t gain any weight, and not to say that I couldn’t stand to be in better shape, but I’m very happy about this nonetheless.

  • I got a great review at work.

I try not to talk about work too much in this blog (or online at all, really. It just seems simpler…), but I will say that my yearly performance appraisal was stellar. Better than I expected. In fact, work in General has been very good this year. I’m learning a lot, and I’m very fortunate to be working with an excellent team of people.

There are other things about this past year that were good, of course, but I think I’ll leave this entry at three. Thank you all for reading in 2013, and I hope you’ll stick around for 2014. More to follow.
