new day

And so it is a new day - of a new year - Happy New Year!  Weird how marking a particular point in our annual trip around the sun causes us to take stock of where we are and where we're going… but it is so.  Last year was amazingly eventful for me and I can't wait to see what this year will bring.

Do you make resolutions?  I do ... and I have two this year, first, I'm going to sleep earlier, and second, I'm going to under-react to things.  These are both pretty challenging for me I must tell you, and we'll see how I do.  If I can do them both I believe this year will be [slightly] better than otherwise.

One of the joys of blogging is a personal record, and I was looking at posts from the end of last year, and it occurred to me; I had no idea whatsoever what 2010 was going to bring.  I had some idea I had no idea however, because I wrote "the future is cloudy but bright".  The song remains the same!

I had two resolutions last year - to spent more time coding, and to remain optimistic.  I failed miserably at the first; I abandoned programming and spent most of 2010 wearing marketing and business hats.  I succeeded at the second, however, and it was great; optimism breeds success and more optimism (and friends!)  And I am most optimistic about 2011... onward!
