New Year's Musings

It's the last day of December. New Year's Eve. Hard to believe it's been six months since I first thought of starting this blog while sitting in Professor Bartley's class back in June. It's been a blast and I want to thank all my fellow bloggers for making it a sucessful experience - Ewan and Ryan, the first two to join me on here - Caitlin and Joel, for helping form the core of this blogging community - and all the others who we've convinced or conned into joining the blogging world including Rochelle, Cara, Jessica, Luke and others. It's been fun. Let's keep it going in 2005.

This post isn't meant to imply that I'm going to stop posting or anything, but it's fun to celebrate things even arbitrary points in our journey that is life. There really isn't anything inherrently special about New Year's Eve or New Year's Day. It's merely an aribitrary marker every 365 (and sometimes 366) days, but it's a marker none-the-less. I think the passage of the year is something that we need. It interrupts the monotony of everyday life and gives us a chance to measure how far or how little we've come.

Happy New Year's!
