Another year gone by, and what a year it was, eh? Simultaneously a rapid blur and a temporal morass, the past 12 months brought a couple of big changes to my life, neither of them particularly delightful.

I’m still alive, though, and I’m still here, being the world’s least interesting human. I have the week off from work (“unlimited” PTO, I might as well take advantage of that on occasion) and my plans mostly center on doing silly things with video games (more on that, later) and watching cartoons and listening to music.

You know. The usual. Life, hopefully, goes on.
