first of the year

is the fourth of the year.

2009 and 2010 were two of the best years of my life and 2011 was a bit of a disappointment. Or, maybe not, but it was a pretty average year, I guess, punctuated by the worst moment of my life just a few weeks ago. A strange year, to be sure, spending most of it in a foreign land with strange people.

Hoping 2012 turns out better. Seems to be off to an okay start. I became a godfather already, which is honorable.

We’ll wait to see what the year shall bring.
