I'm looking forward the new year, building on friendships I have created in the past couple years and getting to know the friends I have better. I'm also looking forward to the opportunities that will be opening up in my career. I have a difficult decision to make in the next couple weeks on whether I would like to try my hand at supervision or if I want to work in our commercial services technical support department. I think I am going to go for the supervisor position. I need something to keep me busy and I am looking forward to the challenge. As for other things I am looking forward to, I hopefully will find that special someone that I might end up spending my life with. I'm not keeping my fingers crossed but there still is hope in my heart it will happen.
So there it is, the things I am looking forward to in 2001.
1. The Friends I have, along with my family.
2. My Career.
3. The possibility of finding that special someone.
4. Numerous other things that may happen.
I was in a rut at this time last year. Got in a big fight with my best friend and really felt like it wasn't going to be repairable. But it was. Along with that I got to know the other guys I hang out with better this past year. I have to say when it comes to friendships I feel I'm very lucky to know the people I know.
Now on to my career. I had two major setbacks this year. I applied and interviewed for both the supervisor and commercial positions but I was beat out on both of them. True the people that got the positions are the only ones I would have wanted to other then me. But I still feel I was the better person for the job. Oh well... life goes on and hopefully I will be a lead soon.
Finding that special someone seems to have been a little more difficult. I dated a girl early in the year that just annoyed the hell out of me. I met some other girls that just didn't do anything for me. I actually started to try and come out of my shell and meet girls (to no avail). I still know it will happen sometime... I'm hoping it's sooner rather then later.
2001 was a year were I drank more then the previous 5 years. I never really drank in excess, it's just we went out more often and I got a couple Newcastles. 2001 also brought us ping pong Sundays and wiffle foamball Saturdays.
The year really was uneventful for me. I still live at home even though I almost moved out in Sept. But soon I will be out on my own... finally. With that move I plan to change my life for the better. I want to get in better shape. I have a nice mountain bike, new rollerblades, and I want to puchase a weightbench. With those three things I think I can work myself into the best shape of my life. Along with that I'm hoping my new found studliness will bring me a better feeling toward my self esteem. I know I'm not the best looking guy but at the same time I know I'm pretty attractive and I have wonderful eyes. Not to mention I have a sturdy head on my shoulders and I'm a gentleman... That has to count for something.
I know I mentioned going back to school.... Unfortunately that will have to wait till I have a work schedule that allows me to take a 7:00 pm class. Then I can finish my AA and transfer to Cal State Fullerton.
Well I don't know what else to talk about... I don't really like resolutions... it's just something to break. But I do like to say what I would like to do in the upcoming year. See resolutions mean that you did something that you don't like. I don't smoke... I don't drink (a lot)... I don't do drugs (you don't even want to get me on that subject, I have contemplated ranting on that subject but I have decided not to yet)... And I don't sleep around (hell I've only had sex twice in my life)... So I will leave you all with these words...
Don't worry about the past. Don't stress about the future. Think about today. Make sure you tell your loved ones that you truely love them.
