Was 2010 Really Such a Horrible Year?

Published December 22, 2010 - 1 Comment

It’s funny the number of people who have mentioned in passing about how horrible 2010 was… and how everyone they talk to thinks the same thing.  I’ve heard that at least 3 times in the last week alone!  They can’t wait for the year to end. And it didn’t even matter whether those people were here… or on a different continent.  2010 couldn’t end quick enough.

I’m not so sure.

I’ve already started thinking about my year in review post… I’ll probably do the same thing I did last year.  I’ll write one for my thoughts of what the year was supposed to have been like, and what it really ended up like.  I’ll write one for the top music of the year.  I’ll definitely have one for the most interesting search terms that brought people to the blog.  So I’ve already started thinking of some of the things I want to write about… but then having 3 people mention separately that 2010 was such a horrible year… it made me stop and think.  What about my 2010?

Well, without going into a big post about the year, I will say this in general.  It wasn’t as good as I would have liked (is it ever?), but it certainly wasn’t nearly as bad as it could have been!  I had a very personal milestone roll by in the spring, which was a huge relief to many people.  I’ve met some really great people through the year, both in person and online.  My circle of friends has expanded more in 2010 than in any year in recent memory.  It’s definitely given me something to think about as I try to plan out that series of posts.

But I’ve still got to get through Christmas, so there’s plenty of time left for things to go in any direction!
