So, how to sum up 2006? Let’s compare how things were a year ago:
Work: 2006 – Unemployed Book Store Clerk
2007 – High-powered Business Process Consultant
Living: 2006 – 1-Bedroom Apartment in SE Portland.
2007 – Studio Apartment in lower level of drarwenchicken & BILJ’s house in Milwaukie.
Writing: 2006 – Webcomic 3/week, Newsletter 1/week. Thinking that I really should make a serious effort to syndicate the Advice Column.
2007 – Webcomic 3/week, Newsletter 1/week. Thinking that I really should make a serious effort to syndicate the Advice Column. (Well, I’m getting more readers now! That’s something!)
Health: About the same as last January.
Fitness: Pretty much the same as a year ago, too.
Romance: Let’s just move on to the LJ First-Line Meme...
First Line From The First LJ Post For Each Month of 2006:
January: For many years my sole New Year's Resolution was "This Year, I'm Going To Be Perfect," although I was never really sure by what standard I'd measure that objective, so while I might, for the first days of each January, be more careful about what I ate or engaged in some exercise, I can't say it was a particularly helpful resolution.
February: Are you familiar with the term "Scope Creep?"
March: I brought home my new computer today!
April: Today, some good things happened!
May: My webhost is down again.
June: As I was opening up the bookstore this morning, I noticed some books on the floor by the Natural History section.
July: Can you believe it’s time for the annual Cake Contest already?
August: I try keep this blog focused on my life, and not just be a collection of links to items I find interesting/amusing (and believe me, the ratio of amusements I find on the web to what I post links to here is about a gazillion to one), but as we'd say back in Arizona, this plumb tickled my fancy: Star Wars Theme On A Banjo.
September: Tense and anxious.
October: I've moved.
November: We had a Fire Drill today!
December: I was whinging to oh_that_jocelyn about the horrid state of my Studio, and she asked I could ask my friends to help out.
So, that's 2006! I wonder what wonderful things will happen in 2007?
