The good:
  • My second (almost first) place contest entry
  • Escaping the shelter I was in
  • My first job
  • Stage managing
  • Got to job shadow at the local television station
  • Passed my AP History test

The negative:
  • Despite escaping, the shelter still lingers on as a bad memory
  • Still dealing with family problems
  • Still dealing with school matters from before
  • My ear drum exploded in May; it's recovered though.
  • Due to work and the shelter, my diet and overall health has taken a hit. Working on it starting New Year's Day.

I guess when looking back, 2017 was actually solid. A lot of the good, while rather small, still helped me in the long run. At the same time though, those negatives are still going to be a problem either because I have a hard time moving on or because of poor handling on both ends. Personally, it felt mixed, but more towards the positive side. A hell of a lot better than 2016 for certain.

I'm looking towards getting assistance with those negatives so that I can start applying for college. At the least, I'm in a better position compared to the past.

The good:
-I got a Switch on launch
-I replaced an ailing computer with a new laptop
-I transitioned into a full-time position at work after working there since 2015
-I went on my first vacation since 2013
-I was able to get an SNES Classic on launch for myself, and two more, which went to a co-worker and a friend
-I got to see a friend I haven't seen in person for a few years
-News on a Mega Man 11 and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection has surfaced
-Along with 2015, it's another full year of driving I've been able to get through without getting a ticket of any kind

The bad:
-The car I'm driving started to show its age, and now I'm hoping to get a new one
-Since August, I've been left wondering if someone is still my friend or not, and that still has not been resolved

2017 was pretty good overall. I got to spend a lot of time with my sister and her kids, which is rare since they live on the other side of the world. I saw England in the Autumn which was very pretty, this allergy season has been really mild for me, and I'm still employed despite a very close call at the end of 2016.
