Everyone and their brother seem to be doing the retrospective thing. Looking back and lamenting. Folks seem to be either focusing on everything what went wrong in the world or everything that was good with the past year. Some people have written posts on what they accomplished while others have focused on all the bad things the governments of the world have thrust upon us. I actually liked reading the scribblings of a few who looked around and asked questions as to why or why not.
2007AD was a good and bad year. A lot of things both in my life and in the world at large happened. Some good, some bad.
I was talked into starting this blog last January. Good Thing.
I have met, virtually, a whole mess of smart, funny and good people through blogging. Good thing.
I had an acute attack of gout. Bad Thing.
I have gotten into many a long, sometimes heated, discussions of world politics with many and varied people from all corners of the globe. Good Thing.
I got a really fun and challenging contract job. Good Thing.
The contract ended. Bad Thing.
I re-established a relationship with someone I fell in love with years ago. Very Good Thing.
I spent the late summer and autumn traveling all over this state. Good Thing.
It appears that this year’s stats will go into the books like this;
Well, I have no doubt that I have forgotten to list some things but this post wasn’t suppose to be about retrospection but instead about looking forward. Tonight I’ll put this year away and file it under 2007AD.
As of Midnight tonight another year begins and I’m determined to make 2008 a banner year. There are some big changes on the horizon for me and I am more than ready for them. Come to think of it I’m getting a bit impatient for some them.
I’ll explain them to you as they unfold. So now it’s time to quit looking back. Let’s look forward and be excited and happy for what lays in front of us.
Happy New Year to everyone!!!
