Yet Another Birthday Rant

I had originally thought up this elaborate speech that I was going to share with you all, but after typing it all up and finished editing it, I don't feel like posting it any more. Each year I end up writing a convoluted mess on my birthday, only to be buried under a mass of meaningless entries to follow each step of my life. I continue being that drama queen that whines to the world, and visitors to this blog dwindles because I stopped updating as frequently as I had faithfully in the past.

Perhaps this will be a good time for to do a review for the year. Being in a full-time position is really quite different from school - even throughout co-op there was still an end in sight. Now there's nothing to really look forward to, except for weekends and holidays. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate my job. In fact, I've grown to enjoy it a lot more than I originally thought I would. There were times when I wondered why I put myself through this pain and suffering of long hours and loneliness of being in London. The truth is, there isn't any other job I'd rather switch for at the moment. Heading back in engineering is not an option any more. In the upcoming year, I really would like to continue developing my skills in this field and perhaps one day become good at it?

In regards to my personal life.. wait, what personal life? My work consumes me, but most of you already know that I put work/school before anything else. It became really clear to me when I didn't receive any phone calls today... or e-mails.. or smoke signals.. I wouldn't have minded semaphores either! But nothing. Expecting too much? Perhaps.

I am still amazed at the fact how things can change quickly, and before you know it, it's almost as if nothing had ever happened. On the other hand, things can happen so quickly that deeply impacts your life without knowing it. Stepping away from my first quarter-of-a-century life and looking back, I've been blessed with many things that I am eternally grateful for. Thanks to those of you whom shaped the way I am today.

Time to step up my game, and make the best of what I've been given!
