I wanted to get in one last blog post for the year! New Years Eve is tomorrow and we are getting ready here because it is also my birthday eve! We have some big plans including great food, good drinks, and cuddling on the couch because we aren’t leaving the house. We both seem to have come down with a head cold which really wouldn’t have changed our plans anyway because we have never gone out for New Years Eve. I’ll do a full post filling you in on all the excitement in the new year.
I just wanted to take the chance to reflect on the past year and what I am looking forward to in 2018.
The Good Things:
Tyler and I celebrated being together for four whole years, now going on 5. I am so lucky to have found someone so much like me but also different at the same time so it is never boring. He puts up with me laughing at my own jokes and I put up with him in general. I’m really looking forward to what the new year has in store for us.
We got a new apartment which we both love. It’s bigger and cheaper and did I mention I have my own toilet?
We also went Ikea Crazy and got new furniture. It has been great to have a couch we can all fit on at the same time. I really like how we have been able to express our style in our new place.
I did something new in going to the Indiana Dunes. I hate the beach, sand just gets every where, but I really enjoyed spending the day with Tyler and having a new adventure.
I spent the Holidays with my sisters and in the past year or so we have never been closer. I also hit it out of the ballpark with my turkey this year.
I went blonde, enough said.
Though Opie hurt his neck this year, we still have two healthy and weird dogs. Nothing major happened this year with them and I really liked that. We didn’t have fleas to the point where Percy chewed himself to death and Opie didn’t eat anything he wasn’t supposed to.
I’ve worked at the Indiana Historical Society for almost a year and a half. I love it there. I recently had an interview for another position at a different institution that I didn’t get but it has motivated me to work harder. The museum field can be a bitch but if you really work at it, it can be worth it.
I have put more effort into this blog and have seen results. I am already planning new posts for the new year. Get ready for a wider variety!
The Bad Things or Should I Say Thing:
We unfortunately had to suffer through the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency. Each day I think it can’t get any worse but then I look at the news and realize it can. The fact that a completely unqualified, mentally unstable person is leading our country still baffles me. The amount of damage he has done in a year regarding climate change, international politics, supposed tax cuts, and more is astounding. I can only hope that somethings will change soon before he entirely alienates the United States from the rest of world. I could go on and on about this but then I would put myself in a bad mood and that would just be sucky.
I am really looking forward to what 2018 will have in store for us. I am really hoping Tyler and I will have a bunch of new adventures in the new year. Wether it be a trip to a new place, a change of scenery, a new job or whatever gets thrown our way. I am also hoping for a new puppy, but who knows! I hope everyone had a nice holiday season and stay safe on New Years Eve!
