I Successfully Killed the Bitch That Was 2009

No apologies. I wanted to cut the crap out of my life for the longest time, and hey, it happened! Never underestimate the power of wishful thinking. I haven't blogged because I don't have anything new to say, except I had dinner here and there, watched some movie and it was amazing/great/meh/vomit-inducing or something or the other, went places, partied, got drunk, met people from my past/present/future, bought things, and details which I felt you won't care about.

But hey look, it's another year. The year 2009 was a hard year, as if all the flagellation of the past 8 years wasn't enough, it went out with a bang. The 9/11, the dot com bust, the wars, the recession, the natural disasters -- it was a mighty ten-year long buffet of kicking our asses.

And we survived it. The last decade was when I really became an adult, graduating from petty love problems to having real responsibilities and worrying about the future. I was forged during hard times. I don't relish making life-changing decisions but it had to be done, and I had to be brave about it.

I'm expecting a big, huge, humongous change this year and I will be very disappointed if it doesn't happen. Hello 2010, I hope you're better than the last.
