Today is my 1 year blogaversary! I can't believe it's been a year since this started. I can remember starting this hoping it would be so many things. I don't think it's turned into any of them except a bit therapeutic. But it has been fun and I've met some great people in the blogosphere who've become a fun part of my life. Some day soon I'm going to meet them in person and have a great laugh over drinks.
I looked back to my very first post and tried to remember what was going on then. I was in a not-so-promising work position. Since I left there I've stopped calling it a nightmare job. That name isn't exactly fair as there were good things about the job. 1-it was a job vs. NOT a job. 2- I worked with some fun and great folks. to call it a nightmare job would be incredibly mean to those folks so the position wasn't very promising, but the overall job wasn't so bad because I knew there was a good laugh or more waiting each day.
Miss Teen South Carolina was in the news for her stupidity and it looked like George Bush couldn't do much worse with HIS stupidity. Good news was that Miss SC faded... Bad news was the George actually COULD do worse with his stupidity.
Now flash forward a year. I landed a new job. It's a small association which brings its own challenges, but it also has its rewards. I have so much fun with my coworkers. The members/attendees are a hoot and even though I enjoyed my time at Pediatrics, the members were not all as welcoming as this group. The job has taken me to the Caribbean for the first time and has promise for new opportunities (once this economy turns around)
Not to get too political, but BushyButt is on his way out and Barack is on his way in. 'nuff said.
All in all, this has been a good year. It has FLOWN by, but it has been good. Looks like 2009 will be even better! There's always a challenge here or there, but since December 28, 2007, it really feels like I'm in a better position to meet those challenges.
To everyone who helped make 2008 a great year, thanks!
