I cannot begin to say how happy I am to leave 2010 behind. While it is true that I survived two major medical events against all (known) odds, and am therefore grateful (to medicine) for said survival, in all other respects the year has been one I would happily forget.

Let us hope that 2011 will be better.

For a start, I have decided to at least attempt to stop smoking. I gave myself until 31 December to smoke, and yes I did actually have two cigarettes on the 1st, but I think I have at least a decent chance of stopping. I figure a few slip-ups here and there will happen. I'm not going to abuse myself over that - even if I completely fail to stop. I am also not telling my family about this decision. Their support would be the death of me.

The other challenges left from the last year is my need to find regular and substantial employment, and a place to live. A car would be nice, but I am perfectly happy to leave that struggle for the future. There is enough public transportation in the area to make do. I don't remember whether or not I've actually put any blog entries in here before. It has been a while since I've even visited the RRS site - mostly due to my lack of a computer - but that is something I would like to change in this new year as well.

I have a lot to do, so I will be off for now.

Happy New Year to all of you here at the Rational Response Squad.
