So Long Last Year, Hello This One

2010 ended with an argument with my girlfriend, in the midst of a stressy getaway to the seaside city of Qingdao. The plan to even go out for midnight got scrapped.

From there, the months started rolling by. Here's what i think of when i think of 2011 highlights.

  • Super stressy negotiations and secret meetings about bullshit decisions made by ill-qualified educators.
  • Travelling solo to Chengdu and Chongqing, eating MSG laden street food intensity.
  • Sort of quitting, sort of getting fired, and thank God for that.
  • Tuesday meditation nights, barely attended, but generally ongoing.
  • Trigger happy photoshooting w/ my GF in Vienna.
  • Lucky enough to score a new job.
  • Generally lucky all around.
And for NYE, a bunch of friends spent midnight underneath the world's 2nd biggest television screen along w/ a couple thousand people. Then we slipped into an underground dance club where i was happily drunk and the GF was happily sober, and the music was a lot better than we'd expected.

As for 2012... i have a feeling that it's going to be pretty different from 2011.

Not sure about Mayan calendar mayhem, but... i suspect that energetically, things could be more intense than usual. So i reckon that taking that into account, it could be particularly beneficial to be self-aware, doing your best to promote your own good karma, as well as that in others.

And of course, i won't be surprised if global economic/environmental meltdown starts happening. i know, i know, patience is its own virtue...

Cheers, everyone. Hope that your 2012 is as balanced, forgiving, epiphanic, wild, and peaceful as you need it to be.
