As this year 2009 draws to a close I meet the new year with mixed emotions.
This has been a ‘down’ year for me financially. A lot of not so good stuff has happened which I won’t detail here.
On the up side, I have met you – my online family. Some of you have become very close friends even though we not have actually met IRL. Having met you means more to me than you realize. Socially, I am somewhat of a recluse. I have only one real-life friend in this town even though I have been back in Michigan about 14 years now. I stay up here in my room and go to work. That’s about it. Twitter, facebook, and Dementia Radio have become my lifeline/pass-time/and sanity saver.
If I’m feeling blue, I can always count on you to pep me up with your words of encouragement, the funny funny music you make/share, and by letting me be the sick twisted pervert I pretend to be to get/share a laugh.
So for 2010, I hope and pray that my friends stick with me, and that things go well with all your lives. May your hopes and dreams approach reality. May all your goals be met. Stay healthy.
If you go out to party tonight, have a good time, but if you drink, please don’t drive. Call a cab, call a friend, or any of the number of other options made available to you tonight. No matter how much that cab ride costs, it is much cheaper than a DUI or a funeral. I want to see every one of you in the coming year!
May your chosen deity, or lack thereof bless you greatly!
