Did Someone Say This Was Gonna be a Good Year?

I was born in the year of the snake. Someone told me, early this year, that this would be a good year for those born in the year of the snake. Thank God I place very little faith in these things anyway, as things have not turned out quite that way. Feb – left a very good law firm, as a promising partner who is well liked by both fellow partners and associates. Joined an ageing PLC. May – left that PLC despite being well liked by the Chairman and CEO. Joined an infant PLC. Oct – leaving that infant PLC to move out of the country altogether. Yes, it has been that kind of a year. Changing lanes every few months, and actually getting off the road and onto the tarmac to take off far far away. TO be fair, I have been thinking of this move to the antipodes, for a few years now. Subconciously, I have always thought I would be there sonner or later. Gotta go now…
