2009: A Retrospective
So another year is quickly approaching its end, there’s been some ups, many downs but in the end it’s setting up an interesting 2010. It started with our application to migrate to Australia a process which is still ongoing. Spring saw the wedding of two close friends, Summer saw me switch jobs and I turned 26 in October. I guess what I’m pointing out is, in general, this year has been quiet. That’s not a bad thing mind, just I was hoping to have news by now of at least our State Sponsorship.
I’d say in general it was a decent year. Very little to complain about to be honest and as the year draws near it’s only the last few weeks where things haven’t been good. I won’t go in to why that is here as it warrants a post all of its own if indeed I post about it at all.
So what does 2010 hold then since I said that this year has been setting it up. Well first and foremost by this time next year I hope to be blogging about being in Australia and how things are going but also I think it may be the first year in which I’ll be more financially sound. Right now it doesn’t look like it but things have been put in motion and lessons have been learned and as I always say, there’s nothing wrong with a bit of hope. Next I also plan to try and do things I’ve not done before on of which will be to go to a festival like Leeds/Reading or some such. How this will work out I don’t know. I will also be doing the experience day that my sister bought me for my birthday. I’ve still not decided what to do but it’ll be either a Ferrari, Porsche or Nissan GTR that I’ll go for but the Ariel Atom is also appealing.
So here’s a toast to 2009 a year in which we started the ball rolling (finally) on migration but also a year of learning. Here’s hoping that the foundations set by it will lead to an even more interesting 2010.
