So, this is 2013, then…

firework
A new year, with all the fascinating possibilities that it brings.

As some may know, 2012 wasn’t the best year that I’ve ever had; while there were some moments of utter brilliance, they were more than weighed down with a number of matters that affected me both personally and professionally. Still, it’s not like you get a say in how many years you get, and some circumstances are beyond your control. It’s not worth claiming to be “happy” that a year’s behind you, in my opinion.
It’s why I’m not a big fan of “resolutions” for a new year, because often they fall aside not out of a lack of will, but due to circumstances you can’t control. That’s why I’m more making plans and things I’d like to achieve in 2013. With that in mind, I’m quite looking forward to 2013, for a number of reasons — some of which may become apparent in the coming months, given how variable freelancing can be. Stay tuned in other words.
And yes, I know I haven’t updated with my various articles for a good long while now; not sure if I’ll continue that in 2013 or not. You can still catch my printed words in FOXTEL magazine, Virgin Voyeur (it’s the inflight magazine for the airline, before you raise those eyebrows too high), Australian Personal Computer and TechLife, and online all over the place, including right here, of course.
In the meantime, have some 30 Seconds Of Tech (including one, I’m informed by a millionaire,┬áis “an embarrassment to Australia.” Not sure if that’s a mark of distinction or not, although he is a millionaire. Does that make him better than us regular folk?)
