New Year’s Eve 2017

It’s been a long time.

I don’t really know where to start, nor do I know why you’re looking here since we’ve been dormant for so long.

I’d shoo you away, but that’d be rude so I guess it’s time for updates.

I landed the dream job about a month after my last entry. Everything I had been working towards for 9 years really made no difference as I was a body in the right place at the right time to get moved up the food chain.

I won’t really be talking much about the job as the job reads these things (let alone my teams read these things), so whining and complaining and whatever won’t make it here. I’m okay, I’m comfortable, for once in my life I don’t have constant nightmares of what’s next.

Both of my parents are still alive. There’s been no real changes here. We’ve had the usual turn over of animals, comings and goings. Right now we’re a cat household, with 5 inside and three feral cats (a mom and two kittens) living on the front porch.

I’m still single. I still don’t really care. Love has always been fleeting. I’ve spent more time alone in this life than with someone, so it’s something I’m used to.

And my @#$#ing beard has gone white.

I’m too young to have a Santa beard.

Dammit.

More eventually, but it was good to talk to you again.
