The year is almost over. It might just be me, but each year the last few years have each hit a little harder than the last. Still, I personally feel like things are going the right direction now. I started a new job last August. Wasn’t necessarily the job I imagined, but it did get me what I wanted. I also launched this site, a month or two earlier than that. Some ups and downs, but the progress has been stellar and I’m now looking at being able to print a comic someday soon–not daring to put a timetable on it, but I’m optimistic.
Overall, this was personally a good year. Our society is kind of fucked right now, but that’s a topic for another time and place. Me personally, I got more proactive about accomplishing what I wanted. I had been wanting to make a change professionally and explore new options for a long time. I wanted to give myself a chance to get into the best shape of my life without a complete lack of sleep hindering my progress and functionality. I wanted to make comics.
I wanted to come to peace with a lot of things. Funny to feel at peace about much of anything right now, but I have to admit I feel peace on a number of fronts. Less action based on a reflexive neediness and more resolved commitment.
Looking to next year… well that should be obvious. Keep making comics. Actually run a table at some of the local conventions. As for anything else… we shall see. All is as the Force wills it.
