2013 Wrap up

I started thinking about what I was going to write tonight as I was driving home from the 10th Annual Family New Years Eve party at the Complex where I work.  I've only missed one of these events, when I was on disability after my second hip surgery.  I'm not sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.  It's definitely consistent.

And if I can say anything about this year, it's been consistent.  Nothing has really changed.  I've developed some sort of strategy for finally losing weight that I've wanted to lose for years, and I do have a bit of a budgetary plan, though I do still have a serious book-buying addiction.

What I would tell my 16 year old self....

People always talk about what they would tell their 16 year old self if they got the opportunity.  I've never really known what I would say; there were too many options.

I had a conversation with a couple of high school friends last night, and it was mentioned what I was like in high school, and then on the way home I heard this song.  And I know I've posted it before, but I think it perfectly says what I should tell my 16 year old self, if I ever got the chance.  So I'm posting it again.

Who You Love



I'm never particularly thrilled by Katy Perry, but John Mayer can make almost anything bearable.  The song is super-pretty though, and someone pointed out to me that Katy actually sounds quite a lot like Kelly Clarkson (in the album version anyway... when you can see Katy singing, it ruins the illusion.)

It doesn't pay to be optimistic.

I had a second interview for a potential new job on Saturday. I was hopeful. Things went well.

Turns out they didn't go well enough. No new job for me.

Back to the drudgery that already exists, devoid of new challenge or excitement.

Watching Gilmore Girls

I've decided, I want a "Luke".

Not a Dean, or a Christopher.  Just a Luke.
