2008: year of the blog

Actually, it was year of the rat.

But as far as I’m concerned, all I did this year was blog. Which is somewhat kind of sad. I blogged more this year than I did from 2003 to 2007 inclusive. That’s insane.

And if in 2007 you’d tell me that I would do that. I would tell you that you’re crazy. And the content I’ve posted, if you told me that’s the content I’d post, I’d tell you you were crazy-insane.

But blogging isn’t an accomplishment. Mind you, I am fairly pleased with some of the content on the blog. It ain’t all good, or even close, but hell I put it up. But that isn’t an accomplishment of any kind. Like learning how to play the guitar, that would be an accomplishment. And I’ve been wanting to learn how to do that for years. I even blogged about it in this cringe-worthy post.

2008 has been a good year though, along with all the ups and downs it comes with, it’s been a good year. It’s interesting because I can look back over the years and sort of follow myself and see how each year has either made a difference or affirmed something in me/about me. But life really turned interested that way since I turned 21, before that it’s all a blur. Hah.

Oh yeah, I switched jobs and started part-time school and host of other things. But none of that really stands out, I don’t even remember that stuff. All there is, is the blog. =/. Clearly I need to actually do something.

Would I have done anything differently this year? Yes, I would have. I would have bought a large flat big screen television. Not that I’d watch it or anything, I’m content downloading television and watching it on the macbook, I just want something to hang on the wall.

  1. Ah but putting content on the blog is an achievement, one of the many I have failed to add to the solitary item in my bag of achievements for 2008 – and the solitary item was starting of a new blog so I could perhaps start putting up content if I knew the url was slightly longer than it had been for a couple of years…

    2008 was the year of no updates, very little reading, a lot less commenting, and even lesser blurking… It was horrible.

    You should be proud of yourself. 🙂

  2. If you think that’s bad, 2008 was the year we all sat in front of our computers and READ jaaduhai.com. So remember yo, could always be worse. 😉

  3. It’s a good blog. My favorite part is the rampant unchecked (those two words kind of mean the same thing, don’t they?) self-deprecation. And I *knew* you were a fellow MacBook user.

  4. @ “I used to insult other people”.

    I used to do that too, until I realized they actually took me seriously. Pleasant surprise that one. Never thought anyone would be that kind to me.

    Its hard to be self deprecating when you are me though – but its easy to convince others one is being so – all I have to do is state the facts.
