We made it!
Personally, I enjoyed a lot of 2017. I graduated with my PhD, got a new job, travelled, saw friends get married, and more. I must be one of less than 1% of people on the planet who was that lucky because, I don’t know if you noticed, but if you ever checked the news in 2017 it was a bit of a disaster. But we did it! We survived! We’re still here!
So, as I’ve said before (possibly at the end of 2016 which, let’s be honest, was also a trainwreck) I’m hoping for regression to the mean in 2018. Let’s have a good year this time around, shall we? We’re certainly owed one.
Today I’ll be at my mother’s home, celebrating with P and my family, probably eating too much. Last night we were at the local until late at night, so I don’t expect to be doing anything too strenuous today. I hope that your day is similarly comfortable and relaxed.
Happy new year everyone! I hope that your 2018 is full of hapiness, success and laughter. Have a good one!
