A brief reflection on 2017- lots of big things happened.
-I quit my job. That makes the second job I've ever quit for reasons unrelated to moving out of the area. And on my last day one of the assistants told me some lovely things about what the other doctor had said about me. Made me both really, really glad to be leaving and really sad. I think of myself as a likable, friendly person. The other doctor and I were merely colleagues, who barely talked to each other. Two introverts who made no effort, I had thought. That day I found out she likely had a bad opinion of me , both as a person and a doctor. Made me really sad, and a little angry that she never tried to talk to me about it. So very happy to have moved on to my new job.
-Started a new job! It took a while to get used to the other doctor asking my medical opinion- not used to that from my old place, but a nice change. I was initially a little worried since several doctors I worked with had bad opinions of the doctor I currently work with, but so far we get along great and I love working with people who actually like each other. Plus, now I no longer work 6 days a week every week! That is my favorite part, time off.
-I bought a house! Sadly, my student loans are still more expensive than the house I bought. Not even close. But yay, I have a house! I now live 10 minutes form my job. No more hour-long commutes stuck in traffic.
Those are the 3 big things in my real life from 2017.
-My guild leader took a large step back due to health issues. He usually is less active as the expansion goes on, but he had to completely stop for a bit at one point due to health issues. We officers are currently trying to better hash out officer duties, more official guild rules than "don't be a jerk" and figure out the future of our raid.
-We lost a few good guildies from the game. Most to burn out, some to boredom.
-The end is in sight! New expansion announced, I've hit 75 on my artifact weapon on 2 specs.
-Our guild rules/officer duties discussion
-Figuring out what we want to do with raiding once we clear the tier, and how to tell some people they just aren't hashing it in the heroic raid and should stick to open normal night. I suck at telling people no.
-Finishing unpacking! At least by next Thanksgiving.
