AKA Down with 2009
I got back to Boston from Oregon on New Year's Eve day. Just in time to compare notes with my roommates on what made 2009 the worst year of all time. Between intense breakups, break-ins, and uncovering family-shattering lies of unbelievable proportions, 2009 was kind of awful. And that's not even mentioning the economic nonsense.
No where to go but up, right?
We celebrate milestones--changing years, birthdays, new moons--because they offer a chance to take stock, reassess and refocus. Collectively, we've been through a lot this past year. The New Year is a great time to look forward with new optimism, new hope.
But, I've got to say it and breath a great sigh of relief... Thank goodness that's over!
