1 Year Blogging Anniversary

1 Year Blogging Anniversary

It came to my attention one year ago today, I started blogging. I find that humorous, considering the anniversary of my post about how I hate Overstock.com has its anniversary three days from now. The reason that’s humorous is that I just got done ordering some Christmas gifts from there.

I suppose I can’t just write to say that I started blogging a year ago. It has been an interesting time, and while at times my updates were slow and far apart, I’ve kept at it. I didn’t know if I could enter that whole blogging thing, but I’ve certainly done better than others.

A year ago I worked at a different place that had a different website. The current one is one of my design and programming. I now work for a place where I don’t dread going to work every day. I never have to talk on a phone, and I get to program all day in a much more mature programming language. I’ve gotten to work with a coworker and design a new web site for my current employer.

My semester is finally over, which means a year of school has gone by as well. My GPA is back up to a 3.5 (I think), but I won’t graduate for another year. Hopefully, when I write a recap in a year, I’ll be talking about my graduation in a day or two. I have my grades for 3 of the 4 classes I was taking, and the ones I have are all As, and I’m hopeful the last one is as well.

Life is pretty good right now, and I’m in a much better position than I was a year ago. I will endeavor to continue blogging when school and life allow me.
