So 2009 kinda sucked.
I spent almost half of it unemployed, I had to move out of my apartment because I couldn't pay the rent, I watched my country go into a death spiral, I had several major sections of my worldview go tits up, and something happened that I can't even discuss because some of the major players read my blog and my Twitter feed. I had to quit my krav maga lessons because I couldn't pay for them, I almost got sued because a medical bill got lost in the unemployment shuffle, and I eat rice and beans for lunch like someone out of my grandparents' Great Depression stories. It's a hard-knock life.
On the other hand, I appeared on Jeopardy, I saw the Pacific, I got a job that's spurring me on to better things, I started a novel, I marched on Washington, I had my two-year Cancer-B-Gone anniversary, I grew closer to God than I've ever been, I learned some killer recipes, I made some new friends and I lost close to 50 pounds.
So 2009 was kinda awesome, too.
Now if I could just scratch up some plans for this evening ...
