2019 Plans

So, what’s on the agenda for 2019? While I’m not making resolutions as such, I do have a lot of shit to do.

On the professional agenda:

  1. A paper about the summer and winter solstice celebrations at Stonehenge.
  2. A paper about the digital nomad lifestyle.
  3. A digital forensics book.
  4. Growing Bohemiacademia’s client base and portfolio.
  5. A few conferences: Oslo, South Carolina, Portland, Texas.

Well holy shit, somehow it’s February

Trees in the snow

I haven’t posted since my review of Force of Nature on the 15th of January, which was a cheat post anyway because I wrote it last June. Before that I did my End of Year Reflections, plus a few other posts thinking about the year that had just happened and the one that was coming up.

Well, suffice it to say 2017 wasn’t exactly excellent. For the past few years I’ve adopted a Russian tradition of writing a wish for the upcoming year on a piece of paper, burning it, then tipping the ash into a glass of champagne and drinking it as I welcome in the new year. This year I didn’t get a chance to do that, but if I had then my wish would have been for the year to be better than 2017.

One Final Reflections Post

…before I stop talking about the new year and get back to a regular blogging schedule.

Last year on New Year’s Eve, my friends and I went through a Buzzfeed list of questions to ask yourself as 2015 became 2016. I thought it’d be interesting to answer a few and then do the same at the end of 2016 and see what, if anything, has changed. Last year’s answers are here. And this year’s are below.

One Final Reflections Post

…before I stop talking about 2015 / new year and get back to a regular blogging schedule.

When everyone came over on New Year’s Eve, we found a Buzzfeed list of questions to ask yourself as 2015 became 2016. We didn’t ask all 30, and I probably won’t answer all 30 now, but I thought it’d be interesting to answer a few and then do the same at the end of 2016 and see what, if anything, has changed.

2016 Resolutions

I make resolutions every year. I used to be really good at keeping them, then I was bad at it for a few years, then in 2013 and 2014 I was good at it again. Last year I forgot what mine were, and then they sort of changed halfway through anyway, and when I looked at them again I realised I’d done some, but not others.

Happy New Year!

I love new year. It’s my favourite holiday. I’m aware that as a cynic and general scrooge about holidays, this may come as a surprise. But I fucking love it. And this year I am cementing a tradition I started last year: Scar’s NYE Party.
