Frankly, I won’t be sorry to see the back of 2017. Personally, it was a very difficult year for my family. I won’t bore you with details but to say that it has been trying is an understatement. Then of course there have been wider issues to consider. Politically, socially and economically the UK is currently very divided. Fear and anger seem to drive and dominate all debate and public discourse. Furthermore, there doesn’t seem to be a cure to these issues on the immediate horizon. So, I don’t think 2018 is going to be a radical improvement with regard to these matters. However, despite there being much beyond our control, we can always look to ourselves to improve things for those we love and our own immediate situation.
So, I’ll be posting a list of plans and projects tomorrow because I think it’s important to set goals and targets. Working towards something be it in a game or in content creation, can be very therapeutic. It can end up being the one thing that you do get to control and manage effectively, compared to the fluid nature of day-to-day life. Plus, I have a rather old school attitude toward the concept of continuous self-improvement. I like to learn new skills. So overall, I’m hoping I can be emotionally self-sufficient in 2018 and not get weighed down by tabloid hysteria and bandwagon jumping politics. Just focus on the task in-hand and stay content.
So, it just remains for me to wish you all the best in 2018. I hope goes well for you and yours in the year ahead. Also, thanks very much for stopping by and visiting Contains Moderate Peril in 2017. I hope you’ve had as much fun reading this stuff as I’ve had writing it. It’s been very rewarding to see audience grow over the last twelve months. Hopefully they’ll be more of the same in 2018. If I can encourage any of you lot to indulge in some kind of content creation in the months ahead, I would thoroughly recommend it. It’s fun. Plus, I need some new stuff to read and listen too. To ensure that 2017 ends on a positive note, I'd like to leave you with a picture of Walter wearing a crown from a Christmas cracker. Happy New Year.
