Checking in

Hey, lame inactive blogger here. I can't believe it's been over a year since I published something! What a year it's been. Let's see; I fired a therapist. I was promoted at work to Senior Compensation Analyst - and, once again, I was asked by the hiring manager to apply for the position. I discovered and became hooked on Minecraft (thanks Five). Along with Minecraft came the discovery of and addiction to several Let's Play series' on YouTube. I listed my religion as "Agnostic" on Facebook and began openly self-identifying as atheist/agnostic. I gained weight and lost weight (I'm currently on the "losing weight" side of that pendulum; 30 pounds since October!). I canceled my cable subscription and went with Netflix/Amazon Prime instead. I hired a guy to mow my lawn. I got new glasses with purple Vera Wang frames. I went on a cruise with my brother Five. I joined Costco. I put together a 500 piece puzzle in under 8 hours. I discovered and became hooked on Carcassonne (thanks again, Five). I discovered and found that I agreed with several feminist bloggers. I learned a few very personal things about people who are close to me and, most importantly, I learned that I was completely okay with their choices. I read books, watched shows, played games, chased cats, ignored my hair, got an allergist, suffered through bronchitis, read more books, and gave geeky shirts as gifts.

What will the next year hold? Who can say? It may or may not include more blogging. It may or may not (probably not) include more dating. It may or may not include getting a dog. It will definitely include at least one visit to see my darling nephews. It will (hopefully) also include more weight loss. I hope it also includes more self-discovery and more self-acceptance. A little more maturity would be nice, too. Just a little. :)

Maturity jokes! Can't think of any, darn. This would have made a great Christmas card newsletter.

Oh yay! I missed your blog. I didn't realize that you had only just come out as an atheist. Congratulations! Next stop - HELL! (Don't worry - all the fun people are there.)

Can't wait to see your next post!
