It seems like everyone is doing these. Well, might as well jump on the bandwagon.
2009. What to say about 2009.....
2009 was the year of getting the Big Proper Adult Job, and being pleasantly surprised to find that I was working with a group of really, fantastically awesome (and often HILARIOUS) people that I probably wouldn't have met otherwise.
2009 was the year of the Film Course, and the year when many films were watched. It was the year I realised that actually, yes, I'm really good at writing essays on aesthetic film theory, Citizen Kane, the Western, and the way socio-political and ethical issues are dealt with in science fiction television.
2009 was the year I watched a lot of really good TV, including some shows that I really wasn't expecting to like so much - Glee
and Gossip Girl
, I'm looking at you - and made some great LJ friends through them.
(It is also, JUST ABOUT, the year I found Prison Break
2009 was the year of Watchmen
, and the year of Star Trek
, the year of Sherlock Holmes
and the year of Inglourious Basterds
2009 was the year Michael Jackson died. It was also the year Andy Hallett, Brittany Murphy, David Carradine, Patrick Swayze, Natasha Richardson and Farrah Fawcett died.
2009 was the year I started figuring out who I am, and what I want from this life. I haven't quite figured it out yet, but I'm getting there.
2009 was the year that comment_fic
took over my life, and pushed my writing productivity WAY up.
2009 was the year Obama became President of the US. Still waiting for him to save the world. Starting to think he's not going to.
2009 was the year of Children of Earth
and of Battlestar Galactica
finishing. AKA, the year a lot of TV producers, writers and exec producers broke my heart more than a few times.
Some bad things happened in 2009. A lot of good things happened in 2009.
Here's hoping that the next year, and the next decade, will be even better for all of us.
My resolutions, such as they are, for 2010:
#1. Travel more, while I have the chance. I need to go SOMEWHERE outside Europe, at least.
#2. Keep writing.
#3. Live as healthily as I can.
#4. Try not to let myself get annoyed or angry about things out of my control.
