…A day early. And so a rather crappy year comes to an end. So that might be the pessimism talking. 2008 has been rather underwhelming and while there were some positives (online classes, finally getting a job), the overall impression is one of disappointment. Maybe a few New Year’s resolutions are in order?
Anyway, curious question. I’ve been throwing around the idea of getting a new user name. I haven’t committed to the idea fully, but just wondering among my handful of readers. If I do change user names, does anyone want a link to the new dynasty? The only thing that would be different is a higher probability of more substantial posts. No essays like I used to write, though…although if people really like that…
So, if there’s not much difference, why bother with a new site? Meh… I’ve been using this name for over 4 years now (5, if count AIM…and almost 7 if you count the AOL name it was a variant of). Life’s changed a lot in that time and posts have been rather piss-poor over the last year and a half. I’m not the same person I was when I selected that screen name when firing up AIM on a new computer. With change being the motif of the year, why not jump on the bandwagon? I’ve done away and disassociated myself from a lot of things over the past 4 years, what’s one more going to hurt?
