2008 In Review

Because if nothing else, I need to do this for marvelous_mail.

JANUARY - Man, I kind of like last year's year in review better than doing an actual one, but I actually want to review this year. I was in a bad place at the end of last year, as I recall. I tried working on digging myself out of the horrible funk I was in, posted a lot of pretentious new year shit, tried writing letters to people, played a lot of Rock Band, became obsessed with Mur Lafferty and began getting a little more serious about writing, lost my phone charger, watched American Idol, was still jazzed about yoga, posted chapters of my NaNo, joined Twitter, was sad about Heath Ledger (I can't believe that was almost a whole year ago), did a lot of memes.
