As in 2013 and 2015 (somehow I never did it for 2014), rather than a review of my year, I’ve assembled a playlist for the soundtrack score... So, I know what they all refer to; some of you might get what some of them refer to, but all you get is the title, composer, and thing it’s from... But if you dig out the tracks, and play them in order, you’ll get a feel for my year.

I've had many “Happy Birthday” wishes and now it's the Happy New Year time. And... It has been a happy birthday, in that I've had nice noms, got some DVDs and stuff, and fenced in the dark. I'm not sure that just things make me happy, though – I've a huge backlog of DVDs to watch, games to play, and books to read, so mere material things aren't what makes me properly actually happy.

Being productive does; finishing stuff does, and achieving stuff does, whether it be in a game or in work, or whatever. I had hoped to finish some bits and pieces today – A Study in Steampunk especially – but didn't manage that. Seeing that somebody's learned something I taught them does. Interacting with friends does. I wonder if part of 2016 being rubbish is because of so many people who I didn't see at all this year.

Anyway, yeah, I have some nice things to enjoy, which is good. As for 2017, Yeah, I have stuff to finish, and stuff to start, and actually get to see some of those people. Which is nice. I don't do resolutions, as I've said before, but I do occasionally need to make note of reminders. I do have a convention or two to go to this coming year; I know that now that my eyesight has recovered somewhat, I actually can restore my book reading levels; I know I've got a routine sorted out over this year that keeps my sugar stable and low, and I just need to make sure I get doing that swordy teaching and coaching stuff...

Shit, there was something else I was going to say, and I forget what it is.

Oh, a note for those expecting that 2017 will miraculously erase the events of 2016 and instantly be a better year: well, no. Trump's inauguration is due in three weeks, Article 50 in March, and all my generations heroes are in their 70s-90s now... But the difference is we're going into those things with our eyes open. It's like Return Of The Jedi – all the shit has been set up already, so we know Han is in the clutches of Jabba, and the Emperor is moving in to the second Death Star, which means now we know what the situation is... We know what we're fighting, what we're standing up to, and so it doesn't have the shock and surprise value this time around.

So, in that sense.... yeah, with caution, a Happy New Year could be had – so go and have it, and make it that. It won't be happy if you don't make it happy...

Oh, yeah, and I said this last year in one of the end of year memes, because I was in that kind of place after what happened last year, but I figure this is the right time to say it again, because it's a good way to round off the year and get closure, and to start off the new year and set a tone:
Go, right now, without passing go and collecting 200 anything, regardless of what else is happening, and tell someone you love that you love them. At least one person, by email, by phone, or in person. Whether it's romantic love, platonic, filial, maternal, paternal, whatever. You love someone, you tell them. Right now. Go on, the internet will still be here when you get back; we'll wait.
