Goodbye, 2009!

December 31, 2009

I keep hearing over and over again, on the radio, on blogs, on television, how 2009 was a terrible year and everyone’s looking forward to 2010. I appreciate the optimism (as I am an optimist, buried deep down under a cool veneer of cynicism and sarcasm), but this year wasn’t that bad for me.  I painted my bathroom,  got a brand new sister, sang a lot of karaoke, played a lot of Rock Band (including Beatles!), realized over and over that I have a great set of friends, lost fifteen pounds, saw some awesome shows, and was IN an awesome show (and from what I’ve heard, did quite well. I still can’t watch the video of my solo. Someday.)

I’m looking forward to 2010, as I expect every year to be greater than the one before.  Of course, I’m coming into the New Year without the ability to breathe out of my nose, thanks to back to back colds. They say if March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb. I’m going to say if 2010 comes in like cement-filled sinuses, it’s going to go out with Puppy Dogs and Rainbows.

Happy 2010, everyone.
