Come at Me, 2018.

2017 was a year of change.

It was a good year. It was also a hard year.

In the middle of the year, Brad and I found ourselves in a big, new city, one where we didn’t know many people. Our move to Victoria a few years ago felt easy in comparison – we have friends there already, it wasn’t much different from Halifax. Vancouver has been an entirely different beast, one that we are still trying to figure out.

A big move to a big place threw me for a loop in a lot of ways. I spent a lot of the latter half of the year just trying to find my groove. I feel like I didn’t start to become comfortable in my own skin here until fairly recently, and even then it hasn’t been easy.

I don’t often do New Year’s Resolutions, but I do try and lay down some goals for the upcoming year. I think these are all attainable, and even if I don’t reach them fully before December 31, 2018, I want to at least get a start on them.

  • be nicer to people, myself included
  • get back into freelancing
  • strengthen the relationships that I have with my friends
  • read more books
  • continue to develop better spending habits
  • take better care of myself and make healthier choices
  • spend less time gawking at my phone and laptop whenever possible

Now that they’re on the internet, I’m accountable and have to make an effort – that’s how it works!

I know 2017 was difficult for a lot of us. I hope that our 2018 is filled with light and love.

We deserve it.
