I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m having a lot of trouble getting on top of things this Christmas. In the past week I’ve received some very thoughtful Christmas cards and presents from friends and I’m ashamed to say I didn’t have anything to give to them in return. It’s due to money issues, but I don’t like giving myself that excuse, you know?
So before I continue I would like to get an apology out of the way to all the people I didn’t send anything to who sent me stuff. It’s not a selfish thing and it damn well isn’t a reflection on you. I just suck this year at doing that stuff.
At least there’s some eggnog at the end of the tunnel.
The year is looking like it’s already wrapping things up. Changes are already happening that elude to an interesting year ahead. My best friend Cheryl got me a camera flash for my birthday which will allow me to pursue event photography as work, I’ve started classes at Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club, an all-female gym that has left me really damn sore (I have to come up with a boxing name. I’m open to suggestions!) and filled with endorphins. I’ve started brewing my own beer, which I expect to go to weird and interesting places. And finally I’m talking with potential clients. They seem to be piling up ever so slowly now.
I’m not going to lie, I’m EXCITED for 2011. 2010 was such a good year for me in terms of becoming closer to the person I want to be and figuring out that a hobby might be something I’d like to do with my life. I grew as a person, became more independent, made new friends and developed tastes that are very distinctive to my own. I’ve still got some more development ahead of me, but I’m closer than I’ve ever been.
I have many MANY people to thank for being playing such a key role this year, as I’m sure you have people to thank as well. My advice is to do what I plan on doing. E-mailing each of them a thank you.
So to those who have been following me around on the internet and in real life, to old friends and new, to enemies and madmen, have a wonderful holiday and a very merry new year.
See you in 2011.
