2009: My year in music

2009 was a long year.  I guess a lot happened, a lot of it tiring, but at the same time, none of it was very interesting.  I’d say this was the year of insecurities for me.  There were several moments when my pride and my insecurity were at odds, which is something i’ve never dealt with before.  It caused problems here and there, but no permanent damage was done, i don’t think.  I’m just glad i didn’t let my pride get in the way of reconnecting with a special friend, which was one of my few proud accomplishments this year.  This was also the last full year of school for me, which had me agonizing over my impending graduation and the full time job search.  I still don’t know what i’m going to be doing after i graduate.  All i know is that it’ll be weird not being in school come next September.

Anyways, i would like to wish you all a happy new year.  Stay healthy and never stop dreaming.
