A momentous year
On the bus ride home tonight, I realized that this year (2015) -- or alternatively, my current age -- has been the most tranformative year in my life, so far.
-More than going to graduate school
-More than my younger sister dying
-More than getting married
-More than moving to Australia
-More than becoming a father
All of those events changed me, to be sure. But each of them occurred in separate years, and most had two years between them.
In contrast, I had three fairly eventful things happen this year. And I'm pretty sure that the cumulative total of this year's events has changed my outlook and my personality more than the events of any one of those items.
The three things are (cryptically):
-The thing at work
-The other thing
-Breaking my shoulder (which was the second fairly stupid thing I'd done this year)
Here's hoping that I never have as "influential" year as this one, ever again. ;)
