This year has been an interesting one.
We moved out of our apartment and into a house which has given me a wary hope for our future prospects.
I went on my first vacation out of the country.
My paternal genetic donor is still as shameless as ever but will hopefully be moving 900+ miles away in the coming months.
I started writing again for the first time in years and rejoined the dA community. I'm certainly a bit rusty but I managed to get my first ever DD along the way.
Thanks to my supportive better half, I've been able to explore an interest in bowling and I'm getting better at it.
My current supervisor handpicked me to transfer into his department which has led to the opportunity to participate in research oriented projects, to learn so many new things, and to escape the stress of my previous department. I even had the chance to sit in the operating room while my boyfriend had SMILE refractive surgery.
I walked out on my part-time job which hit hard financially but the relief from leaving such a toxic employer was well worth it.
Now, it's time to move forward and see what the new year has in store. I'm hoping to either finish studying for my COA exam or find a position back at the local university in one of the research departments with the aim to make enough to pay down some debt and get my student loans under control.
I hope that I will keep writing and finding the energy to put into my other creative projects.
I also hope that everyone in the dA community has a wonderful new year and the strength to overcome any hurdles that may present themselves along the way.
