With the 00’s coming to an end, you know damn well everybody will have a list or a retrospective or just some thoughts on the past decade.
Yeah, well not me. While this year certainly represents a transitional time between eras of my life, the decade as a whole (which doesn't end until next year anyway) doesn't fit conveniently to personal events.
And I'm not really sure if it does culturally either, though one could certainly say it was the years that the Internet came out of the lab and terrorism became the new cold war. But even those were things that were pretty much in full-swing in the first few years.
I'll let others be pundits on that. I'm just gonna write about me and 2009.
