2016 Year In Review

2016 has been a bit of a mixed bag for me. Obviously, I've not done much blogging this year, though I have completed a good number of projects.

It's been a hard year, frankly. My hobby progress started out slow while I was finishing my Master's degree. I also had the honor and privilege of being asked to join 40k Radio. That has been an absolute blast.

I expected that my hobby progress would pick right back up after classes were over. What I didn't expect was to get diagnosed with thyroid cancer in October.

I spent the next few weeks seeing a slew of doctors and ultimately I had surgery a few days ago to remove the majority of the cancer. I had a total thyroidectomy and a partial neck dissection.

The procedure went well, though they found the cancer had grown into my layrnx and had likely been growing for a decade. Surprise!

I'll be closing out 2016 a bit on the slow side, but I'll be picking up steam as 2017 rolls in. I'll be having some radiation treatment early next year but it should be smooth sailing after that.

On the hobby front, I have two projects I want to complete in 2017. The first is my Tyranid army and the second is a 30k army. I'm leaning towards Alpha Legion or Thousand Sons. Can't decide which one I prefer just yet.
