Its become almost a tradition, I noticed, me writing my year in review post towards the end of the year. And yes, I kinda like it, though I intend to change the documentary-ish tone I’ve used in the old posts. :-)I’ve stopped saying if it was a good year or a bad one, because its all about perspective.
