Auld Lang Syne/Happy New Year 2024

A decorative image with a black background and fireworks in the corners, with the words "We'll take a cup of kindness yet for auld lang syne." Happy New Year!

Since New Years Eve falls on a weekend, I’m breaking w/ tradition to post. It’s hard to believe we’re coming down to the wire for 2023, and we’re on track to ring in 2024 in just a few short hours.

For me, 2023 has been a total 180 from the prior year, which was full of nothing but misery and torment. The only good thing about that year is that it ended.

While 2023 had more than its’ fair share of lows, none of which I’ll be getting into, it was all a million times better than the alternative I lived out in 2022.

This blog saw more activity on here overall than it did in 2022, and while my jobs take up a huge piece of my time, I’ll find a way to continue making this work out.

I also know that the blog’s social medias have largely gone dark, so I’ll see what I can do to come up w/ a plan that’ll get those back up and running.

I learned a lot this year, that’s for sure. I learned that while I gained back some of the weight, I learned to focus on the fact that I caught that shyt early, before I gained back all of the weight and then some like I did years ago. I reminded myself that it was still a net loss in the scheme of things, and that there was no better time like now to turn things around.

This time around, I wasn’t starting at baseline zero like before. That’s a victory, right there. I’m still working on turning things around, and I’m almost back where I was before I gained back the weight.

This time around, I’m gonna keep going till I get where I wanna be. I guess there was probably a mental barrier or whatever. It’s like that one lady on My 600lb Life, who lost and regained the same amount of weight when she was in the 300s to 400s. Overcoming that mental barrier hard, I can say that for sure.

I learned that some things just don’t change, and that they’re still as great (or as shitty, on a case-by-case basis) as they were the first time around. Long story there, but ultimately I shouldn’t have expected any different.

A company I applied at and got ghosted by ended up closing that location recently. Now it makes sense. Now I see why I didn’t hear back from anyone there, and why I was never gonna hear back in the first place.

As far as next year goes, I’m not sure what it’ll look like for me. I’ve got this idea in my head, and I hope it comes to fruition. I know for sure I got some personal plans that I’d like to get the ball rolling on, now that I’m in a better place.

I also wanna continue working towards getting a new bed. I’m tired of the one I got, and I want something else. When it comes, I’ll move my current bed to my office, and use it as a couch or a guest bed. It’ll go great w/ the coffee table I posted about over on the ‘gram.

I also wanna work on becoming more organized at home. My house is a fuckin mess, and I wanna change that.

For my New Years Eve plans, I’m not sure what those’ll look like beyond my New Years Eve Good Riddance ritual. I thought about going out for the first time, but it’s gotta be somewhere w/in walking or biking distance, haha.

But ’nuff about me. Over to you, readers. How’d your 2023 go? Good, bad, both, neither? If your 2023 was shyt, I’m truly sorry this was how it ended up for you. The good news is, 2023 will be over in just a few short hours, and it’s already 2024 in Australia.

Anyways, what are you gonna do for New Years’? I’d love to hear all about it, but either way, stay safe out there, and let’s talk.

We’ll take a cup o kindness yet, for auld lang syne.

Farewell 2023. Hello 2024!
