NYE (not Bill)

12.31.07 | Filed Under Me

So I have failed miserably in my attempt to be a consistent blogger.  Perhaps “the holidays” were a bad time to attempt this elusive endeavor.  Perhaps it’s just not that important to me.  Either way, I do hope to post here more often in the new year.

The changing of calendars (as U2 reminds us every frickin’ year) is mostly a administrative marker. Does it actually mean something?  Eh … depends on how you react to it, I guess.  For me, the year still hinges on the school calendar.  Autumn is the time where I really stop and say “woah, I started college/high school/kindergarten X years ago.”

That being said … there’s something about this morning.  As I sit in my kitchen, sipping coffee in my favorite robe …  light streaming through the windows … knocking out some stuff for work … listening to my iPod’s morning mix … staring at my shiny new iPhone … I feel slightly hopeful for 2008. I feel like I’ve been revving my engine for a few months now, and I’m just about ready to slip it into first gear.

So here’s to you and yours. Eat, drink, be merry.  All that.
