It’s weird, but it feels like I’ve been waiting all my life for this year, immortalized in the sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey.
2009 was an incredible year. I discovered Songsmith. I watched Barack Obama’s inauguration with a thousand excited friends in downtown Seattle. My awesome Mom turned 60! I invented a new word. The Dallas Stars beat the LA Kings at least once. I totally embarrassed myself with some old college poetry. I went to e3! I got an iPhone. I gave a speech at PAX! I was officially in the credits for my first video game, Halo 3: ODST. I bought a cow! And lastly, I put on an auction item for the Child’s Play dinner this year and raised $2,000!
I feel incredibly lucky to get to do what I do, and incredibly thankful for all the readers of my blog and followers on Twitter.
I hope you have an amazing New Year. Stay safe, and we’ll see you in The Year We Make Contact.
