Reflecting on the year

What's the end of the year without that meme where you copy the first sentence or two or three from the first post of every month?

Well, that does sum our year up fairly nicely. Lots of video games, packages, some roommate stuff, us whining that nobody likes animation anymore. Yup. But I noticed it leaves out most of the really exciting stuff, because all that happened in the middle of months.

I think the biggest highlight of the year was getting to "assistant edit" Kingdom Hearts II manga back in January. But that doesn't mean it was all downhill the rest of the year. We got a Japanese PS3, and that opened up a world of new video games to play, which was also awesome. We met some awesome new people, including three manga rewriters! One of them's new to the business, so she listed all the stuff she's done during the year, which kinda makes us want to do that, too, but then we have to go back and figure out what all came out this year, and we never pay attention to release dates. Well, rarely, anyway.

We did a lot of crazy out-of-comfort-zone stuff, too, like taking the train to Disneyland. Conclusion: trains are not horrible, but we'd rather not take them if we don't have to. Still, for the occasional trip to Disneyland, I think it's worth it. And we started a podcast, and we made our petition. And we've managed to save a bunch of money in preparation for a trip to Japan at Some Point. So in those respects, (whether or not anything comes of those things other than a bit more courage) I think the year has been kind of a prelude or a prologue or something, and I'm kind of excited to see what may lie in store in 2008. Although it is a little scary.

I kind of want to sum the year up more, but I'm not sure what to say, so Collapse )

Tadah! It's been a pretty good year overall, I think.

This year, I'm thankful for being able to actually save money and buy toys, new-ish clients that like us, being able to play Japanese video games, awesome anime, and new friends.
