Well, my angst quotient dropped considerably this past year...  
And my LJ posting also dropped off to nearly nothing. I've been spending hardly any time in "quiet meditation" since I acquired things to fill my time (such as a wonderful girlfriend and a good job), and my attitudes have been far from reflective. Maybe I need to start setting aside some "quiet time" for my own thoughts, and NOT just diving into my pile-o-books whenever I get the chance. That's the only thing I actually miss about being unemployed, the time for meditation and thought. My personal journal (about the only thing I write hardcopy) is definitely seeming neglected this year.

I just can't do Deep Thought at work; I usually have 3 or 4 problems working on the back burners of my mind towards a "eureka" moment. At this point, it's taking me active effort to shut that off when I leave work, but I'm still not quite managing to switch tracks to anything else.

I am so happy this last year has been good to you. You deserve it. And I am happy to see you happy.

Quiet time by yourself is very important to reflect on thoughts and such. I actually got to do some of that yesterday evening after I came home from Mom's and before Jenn got home...so about three or four hours in the house by myself. It was nice.

I'm glad I'm part of the reason for the minimal angst in your life. *g*
