2007

Happy New Year. I hope that everyone had a fantastic New Years Eve. I know that I did.

Well, its coming toward the end of the year.... time to add up the year:

  • Finally got my Masters Degree in Computer Science
  • Finally commissioned (after a 2+ year process to obtain it). Got the specialty that I wanted and am finally drilling with my unit.
  • Switched my position inside work.
  • Countless first & second dates.
  • Met some great people, both via the Army and via the Blogger-verse.
  • Fell in love and unfortunately fell out of love (Met a great woman, had a fantastic time, but it didn't work out (so sorry R))

Overall - A great year. I achieved a lot of goals and while I suffered a few misteps (like I so should have stopped taking classes after I got my degree... afraid to check my grade in that class) I really feel that I am moving forward.

Is it sad that I am afraid that 08, contrary to what someone said yesterday evening (where she said it would be two thousand and great), doesn't look like its going to be as good as 07. Unfortunately I have to head off for 5 months of Army training (most of it looks pretty worthless unfortunately) which means that much less time to spend with Friends and Family (sooo going to miss spending time with my nephew, Conor. It also means that it is unlikely that I will meet my special someone.... hard to meet someone in the first bit when you are disappearing for 5 months.). At least I get a break from school.(I was driving last night and was grinning when I remembered that I dont have any more classes/homework/tests).

I hope that it is a great one for you, beyond your meager expectations for the year.

I know... sad that I am a bit less optimistic about this year.... just a bit bitter about the Army training.

It does sound like a lot for the new year. A lot can happen in five months. I hope the other seven can make up for that.

I just think that from an accomplishment perspective it's going to be a hard year to top.
Getting married and then subsequently having children will make those years greater but that doesn't seem to be in the cards for this year. I still remain hopefull that it will be a good year overall though.
