2023 was a pretty good year for me. Published a brick, my first ever book. Made Making Light, Exvulnerum's 2nd album. Both projects took a lot of time and effort, and it's great to have those finished and done. I also did a good deal of therapy, and I think my mental health improved overall.

For 2024 I want to get back to updating Exvulnerum 3x a week, and maybe finish the 2nd draft of my novel, Genie. I'd like to continue growing the community here, too.

How about you guys?

I moved out at the beginning of the year which was a huge step for me! Received the C/LtCol Rank in Civil Air Patrol before moving over to senior side earlier this year. Got to go to Australia and got freaking engaged.

Next year (2024) I'm planning a wedding, getting my finances even MORE in order. And going for a K1 Visa. No we are not going to apply for 90 day fiance!

YEAR IN REVIEW
Started my year off by hunting, travelled to Alabama, left Texas, worked a whole bunch, studied a whole bunch, got an internship, and got engaged to the love of my life.

2024 SO FAR
Had to part with Esther for yet another year and fixed my grandma's vacuum.

2024 GOALS
Plan a wedding, apply for a visa, apply for a better job (after my internship's over)

Be a better, more supporting partner through improved communication.

Find a job where the leadership team actually want me in the department.

Draw more.

2023:
Spent a month in California, saw a LOT of amazing space stuff, went to Italy, attended a huge car event in France, made awesome memories with my best friends, got transferred and moved to Toulouse (French capital of aeronautics and space!), saw more space stuff.

2024:
I really need to take better care of myself and my living space, need to find a bigger appartment, maybe start figuring out what and who I want to be

shockingly okay so far, dunno if itll stay that way. its weird because nothing is actually changing right now. and i dont know that he is even going to tell his family (whom we live with)

its still harder coping with the loss of my cat, literally after the breakup conversation was over with, we spent the next 20 minutes crying together about mochi

In order to lose weight I've been cutting back on junk food and alcohol, which sucks because I'm now craving chocolate milk by the gallon.


Thankfully they don't sell gallon bottles of chocolate milk here, but 3L is close enough.
