2017 now draws to a close, and as such, it’s time to reflect on the past year and see what’s been accomplished and what goals need to be set. And, while on the surface, it may not seem like much has been done to accomplish anything, behind the scenes, I’ve been working very hard to change some things in my life.
First and foremost, although I won’t go into the details about this since I’m still working everything out at this point, I’ve started a new job. One of the biggest reasons that I made the decision to get CompTIA A+ certified this year was so that I could advance my career. I’m hoping that by doing so that my schedule will become a little bit more organized and that I can use the increased pay to help finance bigger and better things. One of my biggest goals is to get my butt back in school at some point.
As for around here, I hope to continue what I’ve been doing in 2017. Getting better at drawing, and contributing more to the projects as part of the HexKeys group. I think I made some significant progress in improving my overall art form this year, and right now the goal is to just experiment more and more to continue to get better and better.
As for my other accounts on Twitter, tumblr, and FA. I’ll continue to leave them open and contribute what I can to them. Although, I’m honestly thinking about abandoning tumblr for the moment. At first, I thought it would be a good place to share things as it had a larger than 120-character limit. But I’ve been quickly discovering that the place is a bit too political for my taste, and I tend not to agree with half the things I read on there. I’m also hoping to, at some point, post my first YouTube video on my relatively unused channel.
I'm hoping that the changes I'm making to my life will work out for the better, and will allow me to focus more on the things that I want or need to do. But only time will tell at this point. Until then, I wish everyone a happy new year. Stay safe, and I wish everyone the best going forward into 2018.
Happy New Year!
