A New Year.

So it's 2009... THANK GOODNESS, 2008 was a little much. This may seem weird or fortunate (depending on your preference for half full/half empty glasses) but I've never had to deal with death before. Not a family member, friend or even a pet. Suddenly, a friend, relatives of friends and 4 of my dogs die. Practically one after the other. That was a bitch.
I also had my fair share of brushes with crime. I've had a laptop, 2 phones and a puppy stolen. WTF!
All in all, I'm glad 2008 is over and done with. I have much to make up for in 2009. Fate OWES me.

A New Job
I am now officially a copy writer at a local ad agency. Yay me! So, from now on, I will be posting ads (not my own - just the random advertisements I like) every week. Maybe on Fridays. Not making any committment yet.

A New Outlook on Life.

This is the first time since I haven't made a New Year's resolution. And I did that on purpose. Partly because one gets tired of feeling guilty when unable to keep them and partly because I wanted to surprise myself. So I suppose, in some twisted way, I did make a resolution: Surprise me. Probably the most interesting one to date. Hey, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Not to mention a new President in the U.S.

As much as I hate to jump onto this Obandwagon, you can't help but be excited about things to come. What exactly does having a such a (seemingly) eloquent, compassionate, driven and charismatic leader in the White House do for the rest of the world, not to mention America itself?

Besides having shook things up quite a bit, you have to hand it to the newly inaugurated Pres for giving America quite the face-lift. It's almost like (and this has nothing to do with 'Bama being black) he pimped a whole nation. Technically, nothing has REALLY changed yet on the inside, but on the outside it's a completely new kettle of fish.

I both admire and pity him because of the weight he now has on his shoulders. High expectations of millions (even billions) of citizens and non-citizens. The sad part is... he will NEVER live up to them.Pardon my pessimism, but starting out on such a high note only makes it easier for him to disappoint many people. But I'm glad that he has been able to give a nation, and quite likely, a planet, hope for the future. That change is coming and is inevitable. The question remains to be answered though, if we are all ready. Even though he won't be able to achieve all that he has set out to achieve, I do look forward to seeing what he will.

On that note, thanks for listening. Talk to you soon.

Sol :)
