Happy New Year

Well this is it, 2013. A year that most of us didn't think we would even see. As Jessica has made mention, this means it doesn't need to really be good. The fact that we're even seeing it is enough. I'm not entirely sure I agree but she has a point. As you know if you read yesterday, I spent the night with her, and we're going to be spending the next few days together too. Leading up to midnight we talked a lot, watched a lot of MLP, and generally had fun. When the new year itself came around we listened to some music, and had much more sombre conversations. I kind of sent her into a bit of a depressive funk when I said that to me the new year isn't all that special, because she had been building things up around it. She picked back up again though, and still plans to follow her grand scheme of things. Which makes me pretty happy.

I don't think much of the new year though. I'm not the "new year, new me" type. Those things generally don't last long unless you have the genuine motivation. She does, I don't. Although I suppose I have been changing a lot these past few weeks. Yesterday I even spent $50 dollars, about £40, on a plush toy (told you if I won the lottery I'd buy a lot of plushies. Sadly I didn't win the lottery though). I don't really know how to feel about that but generally I feel kind of happy I was able to buy something that I wanted. Though I plan to seriously cut back on the spending for a while. Maybe another t-shirt but not much at all.

I would be lying though if I said I didn't have some plans, I guess. I would like to release a book this year, or find some other kind of job. I'd like to lose a fair bit of weight too and generally have a much better lifestyle. I'll try not to be too depressed if I don't make it, but I'll also hold out hope that I can make it, and, of course, put the effort in too make it.

I guess I'll just have to see what happens.


  1. I hadn't looked from Jessica's point of view before but I love the core principles of it, if you try your best to have a good year and it doesn't turn out great at least you can always appreciate being alive, that makes perfect sense to me. Have a great 2013 my man, you deserve it.

  3. I've said it on your last post but once again, happy new year Mark :) I hope this year brings you everything you wish for and moer but even if it doesn't, at least you'll be alive to see it (hopefully lol)

  4. Happy New Year Mark! I don't think much of new years either. However, I was very happy to see 2013. I'm hoping the year goes by with no heartbreak and that it's successful, whatever that may translate to. I hope the same for you. Whatever goals or plans you DO have I hope they work out in your favor.

  5. Welcome to the future, dude. This year you need to marvellously finish Immortal Space, and publish the everliving snot out of it. The editing's going to take more time than this year has to offer though. ;D
    But hey, that's the case with all great books so who gives a shit?

    Have a great one!

  6. Happy new year!

    I avoid making those life changing resolutions to prevent failure. If I am to change it will be on my own terms and not just because it's a new year.

  7. Best of luck with your goals! I know how determined and hard-headed you are, so I know you'll do great!


    Also, it feels wonderful to buy things you want, doesn't it? I hope you post pictures of you and your plushie! :)
