Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.

2011 In Retrospect

2011 was a year of change and procrastination. Change is the only constant, isn’t it?

Big changes happened at work that left everyone reeling from shock and surprise but in the end, we sucked it up and dealt with the new situation and tried to make the best of it. one by one, the friends I made at work left for better pastures, leaving me alone, in an office full of people I can barely connect with. So I started spending more time by myself and discovered that I enjoy it very much, giving me time to rest and I get to do things that I enjoy.

I’ve been procrastinating on my school project. I didn’t have any classes to attend so all I needed to do was start my experiments and do it. However, I didn’t realise how difficult it was to try to juggle a full time job and experiments at a school that’s so far from civilisation that it feels like you’re cut off from everything else when you’re there.

Every time I start the project, the mussels end up dying. It was very frustrating to be stalled even before you start anything. In the end, I had to make a decision that could change a lot of my long term plans. At least now I don’t have panic attacks or heart palpitations every time I think about the project anymore.

I haven’t been able to spend as much time as I’d like with my friends but when I do, it’s always fun. I met a number of new people and experienced a lot of new things. I’ve been spending time with Dude and that’s always fun and interesting.

However, I’ve hit a dry spell when it comes to writing. I have no motivation what so ever to even write anything. It makes me feel a little lost. I barely did anything for NaNoWriMo either since I was very caught up with my work and school.

Over all, the year was not bad but I wish it could have been better.

This year, I’m hoping for greater things, better things, more love, more peace and joy and most importantly, I’m hoping to still have a job.
