2017 has been an interesting year. It was the year I started my Master’s studies, MSc in Science Communication, the departure of my supervisor at work, my computer rig GPU upgrade to an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080ti, vacation in Vancouver and Seattle, the first for me on a North American continent, purchase of my first ever Macbook Pro, upgrade my phone to an iPhone X, and for the first time, buying and wearing an Apple Watch.
2017 has been tough, but meaningful. Looking back, lots of things happened, mostly an investment for my future. 2018 will no doubt be largely similar, maybe perhaps even more challenging, when it is now time to begin on my final year project that would ultimately wrap up my studies, ending my two-year journey as a student once again. Getting a Master’s degree is where I will officially end my formal studies. It has been a very long journey in my education. I have been studying my whole life, on top of starting off with my career upon graduation.
I am seeing 2018 with both an eye for excitement and trepidation. I see major changes is on its way to sweep me off my feet. I must be prepared for the wave, staying rooted, but letting it go at the right time when opportunity arises. I have yet to come up with my New Year’s Resolutions for 2018. I must come up with one soon. It will be a great way to anchor myself for the challenges ahead.
Overall, I am blessed and grateful for all the good things that has happened to me in 2017. Life may be challenging this past year, but I managed to weather them all and instead be rewarded with all the good things in life that we so often take for granted. Financially stable, in good health, surrounded by loving friends and family. What more can I possibly ask for?
