Ok, well, not really. For most people, it was probably kind of terrible, what with the entire global economy teetering on the verge of collapse and everything. I am sympathetic, and if 2008 was a crap year for you, at least you can take comfort in the fact that 2009 will might suck less.
But what’s the point of having your own blog if you can’t be totally navel-gazing, indulgent and self-centered? This is the time of year when every media outlet on the planet publishes a year-in-review piece. So here goes: this was a sweet year for me—graduating, getting the Watson, all the campaigning paying off with Obama’s election, driving and camping down the Baja peninsula in Mexico for spring break. I hope next year lives up.
