And Into 2015

on 28 December 2014 at 11:20:09 MST

Hey everyone!

So I got back from vacation a little while ago. The Caribbean was awesome and I seriously recommend anyone who has the chance to go down and visit. Though we had to experience some unseasonable and unfortunate rain for a good portion of the time that we were there, Jamaica was still a beautiful country with awesome people. Oddly enough the place we stayed had an awesome sushi bar, and I'm not even a fan of sushi when I say this, but it was some of the best I've had. Odd right? Anyways, the vacation did its job, mainly give me a chance to recharge my batteries and just break from the monotony of working damn near 7 days a week. But as they say, all good things come to an end.

There's no greater indication that things are back to normal than working a 12-hour shift to start 14 days straight of work. The weeks encompassing Christmas and New Years are some of the busiest for me, namely because most people tend to take off those days and, me working in the broadcast industry, gives me an opportunity to pick up extra shifts and grab some much needed overtime. This helps explain why I haven't been around nearly as much as I'd like to. :P

In any case, I've been looking forward to 2015. I've accomplished a lot in 2014 and I'm hoping I can do more to expand on my career and hopefully achieve some things that will allow me to live a fuller life while also giving me more opportunities to spend time with friends and family. 2014 was very much a year of me keeping my nose to the grindstone, and while I don't mind working now, I really don't see myself pulling the kinds of shifts I am now a few years down the line. I'd like the opportunity to take some time off now and again for personal reasons or not feel the need to go to work sick. All the while still making enough to cover my expenses. Lofty expectations in my position, sure. But nothing was ever won by not dreaming big. I've gotten as far as I have, no reason to expect anything less than the best for myself and those I care about.

And with that I hope you all are having a great holiday season and that you're all happy and healthy. Thanks again to everyone here at Weasyl, staff and members alike who've made everything we've been able to do possible. I'll see you all in 2015!

    Thank you and your team so much for giving us a calm, great working site where we can share our work and view the work of others! And totally unrelated but your banner totally freaks me out, hah.

      Thanks for the kind words.

      If you're curious, the banner is a picture of the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park, New Jersey around where I grew up. The face belongs to Tillie, a sort of mascot for what used to be an amusement park in the area waaaaaaay back in the day and has become sort of a symbol of the town and the Jersey Shore in general. You can learn more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tillie

    I think this is as best anyone can do when comes with a compromise.

    Just wanted to quickly express my gratitude towards the staff of Weasyl, for handling situations (drama) with respect, and honesty towards its users. Such showing of maturity and understanding gives me great hope for the future of this site. :)

      I'm happy to hear it. Thanks for sticking with us and continuing to be a part of what we think will be the best userbase a staff could ask for.
