I’m happy to see 2017 come to a close. It was a good year for me by and large but certainly ran into my fair share of hassles during the past few months.
Worked in a full-time job writing about what I want to be writing about and working with people I truly like, respect, and enjoy working with
Embraced the cloud and managed services as writing topics as part of a larger strategy to broaden my body of work past enterprise mobility
Dipped my toe back into article writing again after taking a break from it and feeling like I need to do it more in 2018
Spent time updating, revising, and editing some old blog posts from my a now offline personal blog and republishing them to Medium and the blog you are currently reading
Took a week long vacation where I sat on the beach and did absolutely nothing
Spent time reading for leisure including books such as Creativity, Inc, Extreme Ownership, and Make Your Bed
Discovered circuit training at the gym
Watched so much manufactured hate and intolerance that I had to declare my Political Atheism
Gave up late night talk shows because they became unwatchable due to political drama and blather
Procrastinated taking some online training I need to take for my own professional education
Ended out the year with some real hassles such as a contractor messing up the front steps to my house and the who issue going to court; the first Thyroid medication that ever worked for me going on backorder and becoming hard to get; and getting rear-ended on my way to work one morning and having to deal with the other insurance company that was sure I was trying to rip them off.
