Five, four, three, open sesame!

A quick scan of the internet today showed that most everyone I know had a pretty bad year, and indeed many were marveling about how everyone they know had a pretty bad year, like, hey, what is up with all of these bad years?

But what I really love about the turning of the year is that we all feel okay about admitting how bad 2010 was, because 2010 is over. We have a completely arbitrary and senseless measurement of time telling us that yesterday belongs in a different numerical denomination than today and thus follows different rules of fortune, and we are using it. Nobody boos at the end of the countdown. Show me that hope, people.

I had a pretty bad year. And then it had a pretty good ending. I'm looking forward to 2011.

Also, snagged this from ital_gal:

Copy and Paste if you have enjoyed the blessing of meeting people online that you never would have met any other way. This is my end of the year shout out to the many "friends" I have never been in the same room with but who have inspired, amused, comforted, encouraged, and touched me in so many ways. I love you people! Here's to another year together!

Later on I'll do some fic round-up and musing about what I didn't accomplish and hope to change. I even wrote some down, sitting beside a dear friend at the bar as the year ticked down. Yeah, seriously, wrote them down. On paper.

Today, though, I cleaned the whole house and made two banners on Gimp, and I'm sleepy.

But hopeful. Very hopeful.
