It's time for the annual year in review! The theme of the year is quality not quantity as not much happened but when something did it was a huge event! Enjoy.
January- Started the month by telling my parents I was in a long distance relationship and was making the trip out to meet him. This did not go over well and as a result I spent most of the month feeling quite unwell. It was also my birthday so I treated myself to a massage. It was wonderful.
February- Made the trip out to meet my bf for the first time. It was a good trip, but I do wish I had let him come to me first as what they say about guys getting bored is completely true! Oh well c'est la vie. At least I had a good time while I was there.
March-April- Pretty uneventful as I had missed a lot of job hunting due to being unwell and then going away so I went back in full force these 2 months.
May- My compensation form getting laid off came to end which made my financial outlook pretty bleak. Started not spending and went nuts with job hunting. I also joined a fitness studio this month. I still go there!
June- Job hunting interviews etc etc
July- My Grandma on my Dad's side turned 80. She lives in a different province so my dad and I went on a road trip up there. It was fun. After I got home My uncle who had been sick for the las year took a turn for the worse. Then my bf broke up with me. My uncle passed away a day later. Grieving 1 loss is horrible. Greiving 2 losses at once is just awful. I've done it twice now. The worst part was that my ex bf contantly repeated that one of the reasons he broke up with me was because I don't go to church. Because I don't go to church I do enjoy going to churches since it's always for an event. Plus they are nice buldings. This time not only was it a negative experince because it was a funeral, but I had been dumped for not going there so it was like putting salt in my wounds. I kep thinking "If I wore nice clothes and sang songs every Sunday I'd still only have the funeral to worry about but because I don't I have to deal with being dumped as well."
After the church part was over I quickly moved on because I had a nice visit with family. I even met one of my cousins that I had never met before.
August- Back to job hunting after a huge blip. Was getting quite depressed over everything.
September- After 21 interviews and lots of ups and downs I finally landed my dream job.
October- November- work, work and more work. Things got better and better.
December- Still working, took some vacation days which were wonderful. Had a work party last week. Today I'm off to a party with my therapy peeps. Next week is my family party. Life is good
