2011 has come and gone. It has been a relatively uneventful year, especially when compared to topsy-turvy 2010 when things were in constant flux. Notable highlights were the Silverstone half marathon, the trips back to Singapore and to Barcelona and Scotland, and starting work at the new job.
In a sense, 2011 was built on much firmer foundations that had been built over the previous year -- a new job, new home, new licence, new lifestyle -- that I spent the year getting used to. Stability was supposed to be the reward of all that hard work, and I guess I did enjoy it for a while. But stability is like chewing gum: it's nice at first but then gets stale after a while. And one year is too long to spend chewing on the same piece.
Next year's focus will be on finding more pieces to chew. It's not going to be a pretty year by any forecast (especially the one by the Mayans), but as long as that one doesn't come true I should be fine.
Have a great 2012 everyone!
