A new year, with new possibilities and new adventures. But up untill now, my time has gone with work and not much else. I must try to open up for all the things that could result in an interesting blog post.

2015 in retrospect

I think it is time for a 2015 year in review, before I start to look forward on a new year.

In some way, 2015 was special. Still, when the year ended, I was pretty much the same place, when I started – both literally and figurative speaking.

A highlight of the year was me finally gotten a chance to visit Japan, and found it even more fantastic than I had imagined. I almost found love there too, but it ended with being just a bit complicated friendship.

At the beginning of the year, I could have gotten me another job, when a job recruiter contacted me. It turned out, the job was not what I wanted – and probably I was not the right candidate for the job anyway.

Throughout 2015, I have been looking for a new apartment. Had I found the right one (affordably and the right location), I could have moved in 2015. I did not find the right place, so I am still the same place I was, when 2015 started.
So in short: I am still the same place, in the same job and still just me. Reasons be, that I am a little picky and other people are picky too.

A large part of the things I have mentioned here, have not been on my blog when it happened.
What I did write, was about a warm winter and a mild spring. In addition, a bit about me looking – not that hard – for a new place to live.

Off course, I also wrote a bit about my trip to Japan. Just not the juicy stuff.

I also told about me, trying to be a better version of myself. I did start to live even healthier than before, and have – until now at least – done so ever since.

In November, we got a lot of snow in a single weekend. I wrote about that. I did not write about a job that was beginning to take all my focus and energy. I did not find a work-life balance for myself in 2015, but I have to do that soon.

Throughout the year, I have been working on making me a better version of myself. I intend to continue do that in 2016.

First snow

Yesterday, the first snow fell this winter. And not just a few snowflakes.
Today started with more snow, but at this moment, it has already started melting.

A new me

I am on my way to create – or try to create – a new and improved me!
For one and a half month, I have been trying to get rid of excessive weight, and so far, it works fine. Besides eating less, I have primarily cut down on unhealthy food. So not only am I looking forward to be slimmer, but also healthier.
I am going in that direction, but I am not there yet.

Right?

For so long I have – almost blindly – followed the route laid out for me. Listening to good advices and done as told. And I have never felt so lost.

Today, at a walk through a nearby forest, I saw this arrow, pointing right. I walked left – and it felt so right.
