I quite like that so far we've had six comments on the thread name, three about Pelotons and only one actually mentioning 2019.
And actually, only now do I notice that the thread name doesn't even mention 2019. (If it didn't already have a title, I'd propose "G&GR 2019: The Year That Buffistas Forgot".)
LOL. Peleton is not constrained by your silly YEARS! Peleton is eternal! Bwhahahahah!
Um. I never like to wrap up a year before it's actually over. So far this year was a heck of a lot better than the end of last year, though?
I'll have more to say later, but right now what I have is that 2019 brought me my birth mother.
That is a whole lot to say about the year, ND.
ND, that is momentous.
I had to go look up Peleton. Seems like the folks it would be most useful for would be serious exercise enthusiasts, not the dilettante like me.
Not quite ready to say goodbye to the year yet, even if I don't think too much will change. I've been looking for a new position on campus and the last one I applied for hasn't reached out. It can take them a while sometimes, so I'm being patient. I really hope to be able to say I have that position by the end of they year. My girlfriend put in a good word for me, already. Hee. Pays to have connections.
It feels a little soon for me to be discussing 2019. For now, I'll just say that if 2018 was the year that everything changed, then 2019 was the year of examining who I am after those changes.
2019 was not a good year for me. My anxiety spiralled out of control and I had to take a month off work. In retrospect, I wish I'd taken two. I got laid off in early October, along with most of my department. It was a total shock to all of us. I spent a month freaking out. Then my beloved cat Leo got sick and he was gone within three weeks. I'm thankful it was quick and he didn't suffer, but I miss him so much. Also I got diagnosed with diabetes earlier this year, and subsequently went on a super-low-carb diet, and I got the diabetes under control and lost 65 pounds (so far). I'm glad about the weight loss, but besides that, this year has been miserable. I'm ready for a new year and a new start.
Getting Buffista cards is so fun! I will send mine out eventually.
