It’s been quite a while since I last wrote, but I am hoping I will make it a habit to write more frequently in 2020. (Here’s to hope!)
On 2019, the year was good in many ways and kind to me in general. Work was good, life was good. Drama in life if there was, revolved mostly around work budgets, research deadlines, reviews and other related things.
(Note: I try to avoid considering drama related to humans, attempts at understanding their behavior and then failing as a constant of life, and to ignore it)

2019 saw also our house-hold multiply with the addition of two (rescue) dogs – Ryan (not a name that I chose) and Yuki (a tiny puppy that decided to make our home, hers as well). Both dogs abandoned at some point in their lives, seem to settle in with us – to the point of taking over our beds, sofas and pretty much all the furniture in the house.

Me, I have not changed much. I still have trouble sleeping, a workaholic as usual,continue to love my space an increased amount each year, and have seriously limited patience for bullshit.

Things I hope I will be able to keep to/ learn to do in 2020
- Avoid pretentious people at all costs.
- Learn to say “no”
- Sleep more (much more)
- Avoid toxic behaviour and people at all fronts – especially at work
- Work less – if possible. (Make it try to work less, and try to keep sane.)
- Be good, even if others are not to you
And yes, hopefully write on this blog more frequently (when possible, if possible).
