Overall, I have to say that, for me personally, 2017 was a pretty good year.
I finished my contract with my current employer in Beijing and found a better job in a better part of the city which will begin in February 2018. I was able to visit the Philippines multiple times and travel through Bangkok and Cambodia with the woman I will be marrying in February. I self-published a short book of only 52 pages on Amazon and then, last month, was able to add more content and increase the overall page length or over 200 pages.
I'm sure there are other achievements and experiences I've had throughout the year which have made 2017 a positive year but those are the ones that stand out the most.
I don't plan on going out and celebrating tonight. I plan on relaxing at home, playing some PS4 and most having a conversation with my future wife on Skype (if she wants to...she's currently with some relatives in Antipolo).
I don't have to work tomorrow so I'm just happy that I can stay up late tonight and sleep in tomorrow.
I recently bought my plane ticket to Manila on-line and will be flying out of Beijing on Sunday January 21st and arriving at 5:50 am on Monday January 22nd to help finish preparing for my wedding.
2017 was a pretty good year and I hope that 2018 will be even better.
Happy New Year!
