I (my partner, really) had a son in February so that's pretty much been my year.
I've actually painted models to completion this year, which is 1000% better than the no painting I did the year before. I have 1k of completed Necrons with 1250 on the very near horizon. 6k+ of BA to paint, but let's not talk about that
At least I've started the long process of unifying my red colour scheme across a collection that has spanned the better part of two decades.
My band has almost completed a new (first real) full-length album and it is almost entirely new territory for us as musicians. Considering between the three of us we have 40+ years of experience it's something I'm quite proud of. Can't wait to finish off the last couple tracks and get recording in 2017!
Thems the cliff notes I think. My son is thriving, my relationship is good, the band is killing it, and my work (teaching music) is doing better than it ever has.
Bring it, new years.
