blog: a year in review
so i've officially been blogging a year.
i started on a whim and never knew how constant a part of my life it would become. or that it would become a real part of my life at all. and as life has it's cycles, this blog has been there with me for them and taken a few of it's own.
this has been a whirlwind year from me. i finished up a hellish law school career, i took the bar, i lost a friend to suicide, i lost friends because of this blog, i outed myself to my friends, i lost an apartment, i found an apartment, i found a job, i passed the bar, i found a positive balance on my bank account, i found a boyfriend, i found an orgasm, i lost the boyfriend, the boyfriend found a therapist.
this blog has served several purposes. sometimes to give myself time to reflect. though more often to reach out...the e-mails i got when dave died were overwhelming. you showed me your pain to help ease mine and i thank you. losing friends because of things i've written here has made me realize the pure superficiality of those relationships and made me really cherish the friends who've stuck around for every other mistake i've ever made and who, no matter what, love me and think i'm worth having in their lives.
the blog word as i know it has seen many changes. two different sets of bloggers that i know have started some serious long term relationships. several bloggers have disappeared entirely. some bloggers have conceived carried to term happy babies. some lost their life as they knew it. many blogs disappeared or merged or a combination of both as bloggers sorted their feelings out. some real life friends started their own blogs. all the while, i've been here to witness it. to share in the joy, the devastation, and all the stuff in the middle right along with them.
some have been here from the beginning. for some reason, you've stuck around and for that i humbly thank you *bowing to your greatness* i'm honored. several of you i've met at one point or another. i always invite people to look me up when they get into the city. so to those i've met, i look forward to seeing you again. and to those i haven't yet had the pleasure to buy a beer in this fine city of mine...what the hell are you waiting for?!
*raising a glass* here's to another year full of ups and downs and "whatever doesn't kill me makes me stronger" stuff. i'm armed with my strength and my happiness and the love of my life, this fair place called gotham city. so, life, i'm ready for you...bring it.
cheers! and can i get a huzzah??
