As we come through another year which some would have thought to be our last days on this Earth. Well the year in review for me is a yearly look at what has happened to me as an individual. Okay you can watch what happened in the world on Television and its okay to feel a bit sad for the lost of life and such in the world, and the great books that came out this year and many more of the blogs here on WordPress. Exciting stuff and one reason I do this is because I like to take stock of a year that I had.
January was a short month with my resolution which went out the window and some were done to the T. A report on computers and internet was almost forgotten but I think a second part is coming soon. Funny thing about updating is a pain and because a few thing happened with my website that I had to use this blog as a temporary solution. February was a little busier than January with the blog completed and then a nice treats. Treats like reaching a about 1030 views where I dance in my room as nature intended. Of course I used an orangutan as a picture for a joke, but seriously I should hope we look after them and save them. First acceptance of the year and a slow start, in my professional career. Personally it was a good month. March, had some update on the side bar. A relative slow month, and a little St Patrick’s Day drink which I didn’t blog about or even about my writing.
April, in the beginning of the month, I had an acceptance of two different anthologies from two different presses. A quiet Easter and my trip to Sydney is the best thing that happened this year. As May came I still had to write about my trip in Sydney and Mothers day poem and more of Sydney… June much the same and stories sending out to a competition. July was much the same with my Sydney trip roll up, and some updates on my writing with a editing of a novel, an acceptance of a story from a press, and a story/article update. As August comes, I was writing when I could, as I looked at my blog and knew to make changes. Also started to paint and renovate my bedroom up to September, which I had no internet at all. Somewhere in these months another story was accepted.
October was a progress report of my writers block, why I wanted to write and my attempt of Halloween thoughts. November comes as Nanowrimo was a thing I thought I would not do, however I did do it. A bit of technical issues with my desktop computer when it decided to harbor a grudge on me and went kaput. Lucky I did have a backup of my writings on the laptop and of to write on for nano. Had a birthday and then my Uncle from Italy came and the two weeks seemed very short; but a beautiful moment. As December came and after fixing a few problems with the internet and such, I fear as I am writing this, my laptop computer is slowing down and it takes much of a day to write a story. Or even blog with the antivirus making it more slower than it is.
With the Mayans predictions fizzed up on the 21 December, I went on to celebrate Christmas with family at home. But the funny thing about predictions and I sometimes like think that should be taken seriously. Well not all predictions are set in stone, well not most of the predictions. Predictions or not we should get back to our roots and look to nature and see if we can change. But I think we are set in our ways, and it might be too late to start. NO its not. I think we joke about the Mayan predictions because they didn’t survive. Hey wake up people, we are also going down that road if we don’t learn from our mistakes. Okay, enough of the low-down of philosophical junk. Today is the end of the year and I like to celebrate it. As I’m typing this, the weather has decided to rain. Christmas Eve it rained and today on New Years Eve its raining again. Remember, I’m an Aussie who lives in the North Queensland, and our Summers are also our raining and storm seasons. Flooding may occur and I do mean may occur in my hometown. Even though its part of my life, I would never leave my home at all. I enjoy life even when its raining.
Well, overall for the Year 2012, my highlights was Sydney, the Nan Tien temple and meeting my uncle from Italy. As I concluded this post, I have thought of my resolutions and I decided not to even voice them here but say I have them written somewhere and will follow them as best as I can.
Happy New Year to everyone and please, have a safe New Years Day as well.
