2005 Year in Review

So looking back, in a single word I would have to describe the year of 2005 as chaotic at best. I won’t even bother to try to break it down month by month because, frankly, it all just sort of blurs together for me at this point. The threat of unemployment hovered over me for more months this year than I care to count, I’ve spent the last eight months trying to move on from a girl that I should’ve been proposing to this Christmas, and I almost lost a family member altogether earlier this year. You might say that this hasn’t exactly been my finest year…

…but then again, it has had its good points as well. Two months ago, I was told that I would be keeping my job and that there won’t be any more layoffs in the foreseeable future, so that’s comforting. On the creative side, I’ve started exploring some new avenues with my sister, not to mention began entertaining the idea of bringing back some old favorites as well. For better or for worse, I did move into a new condo that is considerably nicer than the old apartment that had parties waking me up at 3am. And that girl? Well, it’s tough for me to say because I still miss her a whole lot, but if anything I’m certainly thankful for the time that we did have together because she taught me a lot about myself and the kind of life that I want to live.

I guess when it all comes down to it, things can’t be perfect every single year and of those that I can recall, 2005 just happened to be the one that wouldn’t stop coming even after mercy had been called. It’s unfortunate, yes, but life isn’t always fair – there’s a moniker for this past year if I’ve ever heard one! What’s important, though, is that we learn from said shit storm so that we can do whatever it takes to prevent it from happening again in the future. They say that it’s how we deal with problems like these that makes us who we really are … so with the coming of 2006, I have but one thing to say – let’s play ball…

Resolutions to come soon.
