We are pretty much finished for the year at work. We projected December and are waiting for our accountant to reconcile November. It was a lackluster year. I do fine for my age and the amount of responsibilities I have (none), but this year was a step backwards for the business number wise. I just keep my head up and keep moving forward because I know if I can make similar money doing it this way, it sure beats the hell out of doing it for someone else. I don’t necessarily love it but for the almost 5 years I’ve put into it, and learned the in’s and out’s of how to make it work, I can’t really foresee any future career change. I expect an improvement next year.

Nothing really changed much as I look back at what really happened this year. I still drink too much on weekends. Gamble on sports which is as I’m well aware is -EV. I stay in shape, which I don’t really ever see changing because the thought of getting fat and lazy just bothers me to the point that I won’t let it happen. I didn’t make anything in the stock market which seems to be my general theme. I didn’t really make any headway financially as my salary is actually decreasing as my expenses rise. All in all it was a pretty blah year.

I did start this blog which gives me amusement from time to time. I still haven’t figured out the purpose of it. I guess I hope that some people who have had similar blah years read this and know they aren’t alone. I’m sure people have had way worse years too. I have nothing to worry about and everything to be thankful for. I have my health, good friends, a place to live, and don’t have to worry about my next meal. I’m so much more fortunate than the majority of the population that when things seem bad, I know it could be much worse. I have a feeling 2010 will present an opportunity that will be a big difference maker in my life. I’m not sure what, but I have high expectations.

My serious post count is low, mainly because I don’t consider these good reads. Every now and then I’ll pop these out just to show that I do try to take a look at the big picture and keep things in perspective. I also write this because this is the end of my normal/good self for the next 10 days or so. I’m not sure if I’ll call it a bender but I intend to take 09 out with a bang. No pun intended. It’s freedom from here on out. No work, nothing to do, basically anything I think that could turn into a good time, I’m there. Family functions on Christmas but after that I will live it up. This has potential to be the last blog post of the year mainly because I’ll be either too drunk or too hungover to write. I thank anyone who reads this. I personally don’t read anyone else’s blogs (other than my brothers but that’s only because he has a link on my own page), so I find it flattering that you visit mine from time to time. I hope this is as enjoyable for you to read this as it is for me to write this (not this post but the blog in generaly). Look forward to the goal list in 10′. And please pronounce it 10 and not 0-10.

Does anyone find this font too small? Maybe I’ll consider a design change to start the new year.
