I must say, this post took me a lot longer than I expected. I got caught up reading all of my old posts. Things that I thought were really witty, funny, or insightful at the time don't seem so much anymore. I think I've gotten better as a blogger since I first started in April, but I know I have a long way to go until I really get good. In the mean time, thanks for bearing with me and have a happy new year!
