Reflecting on: 2019

One of those things that people like to do is write about a review of sorts of the previous year of their lives. So, I guess that’s what I’m going to do as well. I’ve also seen people write up their thoughts on the decade, but I’ll do that in a different post.

Alright, 2019, what was it all about for me? I’ll keep it brief and in no particular order. Just kind of vomiting out the memories to see what I can come up with.

I turned 31, no big deal. My coworkers still give me a little grief for “being so young” despite one of them not being much older. Speaking of work, it was my fourth consecutive year of employment at this job. Longest I’ve held a job, too, so that’s something!

I took a vacation for the first time in, well, ever really. The first leg of the vacation I traveled to my old stomping grounds in Colorado and spent most of a week catching up with friends just hanging out, trying local brews and eating good food. Then I made my way to San Diego for TwitchCon. First time being in California, and it was an interesting experience. After returning home I used the last few days of my vacation to just relax from home and recuperate before going back to work.

Maybe I’ll post more details about the vacation in a separate entry, maybe I won’t. Haven’t really decided yet.

My teeth tried to kill me, so I finally opted to start the journey of dental work that needs to be done. Honestly, I should have started it properly in 2018, but oh well I can’t change that fact. It’s going to be a long road, but it’s all to better my quality of life.

One thing I did a lot of was watch various shows on streaming services. Not very productive overall, but I just wasn’t in the right mindset to create content. Hopefully I can develop the habits to compensate for that in the future. Need to create even when I’m not in the mood.

What I should do from here on out is just plan out a bunch of different things I can write about, or maybe take requests for things people want me to write my thoughts about.

Anyways, 2019 wasn’t exactly a banner year for me, but it wasn’t bad. Maybe I can make 2020 a good year by completing some of my goals. Only one way to find out!
