In 2018 I failed to lose weight, practice violin, spend less money on things I don’t need, or much else that I started the year intending to do.
I did watch Solo: A Star Wars Story (more than once), though. It did not ruin my childhood, make me boycott the franchise, or any of the other hysterical things some people apparently do because women and / or non-white people appear in films (see Doctor Who for further examples). I actually rather enjoyed it.
Anyway, not the most successful year for actually getting anything done but I’m still fairly optimistic. I’ve managed to end the year with some good habits (for fitness, writing, and learning) that I think will serve me quite well and I have a few ideas about how I want to adapt my career that will give me lots of interesting things to study.
As usual, this regular post exists mostly as a reminder to myself but if anyone else actually reads it I hope you have had a good 2018 and have a better 2019.
