my dear acquaintance, it's so good to know you
i was just looking back at my new years eve post last year, and it's funny the way these past two years resemble each other even though things happened oh-so-differently. much of 2007 was fantastic for me, until things sort of fell apart during the last few months; much of 2008 was so-so for me, and then things suddenly, unexpectedly, and all-together-wonderfully came together during the last few months. now, looking toward 2009, i believe i stand on the brink of what may end up being the most incredible year of my life. the new year looks to bring a long-time-in-coming graduation, along with three additional letters after my name; some exciting and significant milestones in this company that i've helped to found; and, most importantly, the continued growth and development of a relationship with the woman who truly makes me feel like the luckiest guy on the planet...my dear acquaintance, it is indeed so incredibly good to know you.
happy new year!
