A whole new one

And 2008 has ended, it is now a whole new year and a whole lot of new adventures ahead. But first, let’s have a look at 2008.

2008 was probably a quite good year, nothing catastrophically bad happened at least. Nothing good really happened either though, it just flowed along. My memory is somewhat failing me as I get old, but had a semester of mainly crap and then a semester of a bit less crap. During the summer I worked, which was quite nice, but not very much free time. There, as usual, came a lot of crap at the end of the year though. Christmas and New Year, never liked them and will most likely never like them, perhaps when (if) I get kids.

Christmas was rather uneventful this year, which suits me fine. Food got eaten, presents got unwrapped. Not as many presents as usual though as us kids wasn’t buying stuff for each other and each others partners. On Christmas day some more food was eaten.

New year, as stated previously I do not like parties all that much, and new year is the super duper mega wonder party day. I didn’t do much, ate some nice food, fired of my 2 fireworks, stayed up way too long watching Merlin and then went to sleep. It’s okay with me, but I do wish I would actually like them parties and have such I nice time I hear other people have. Does not seem to happen though so I’ll stick with doing it modestly.

So, a whole new year. Many people seem to think that a new year is a new start, but in fact, this one just continues where the last one ended. Just cause it’s a new pretty number in our calendar doesn’t mean that anything is different. I don’t say that things can’t be different, but the 17:th of March is as good a break point as new years day is. No new year resolution for me at least.

This coming year is one filled with uncertainties. The first one is if I should try to work alongside my studies or not. I got an offer from a professor at school which sounded somewhat interesting and I might accept if it works out with studies. Secondly there’s my dissertation that I’m supposed to write the second half of the semester. I of course have got no clue whatsoever about what to write about. After that, which would be sometime in beginning of June, I’m done with my education. Then I’m supposed to either work for real, or work for the summer if I decide to study the masters. I have no idea if I want to study the masters or not, and I got no clue at all where I would like to work. For now, I guess I take it as it comes.

Happy new leap second, we now got 34 of them!
