2010 is already 5.6 billion times better than that lousy 2009. 2009 was like that loser abusive boyfriend that kept finding his way back into the house with offerings of roses and Bud Light only to start throwing things at one's head when one wasn't looking.
But 2010? He's a gentleman. The roses aren't from the refrigerator at 7-11 and the dimonds he's offering weren't bought off QVC. One week in and I've seen my BFF from the 3rd grade, been to San Francisco, had a great audition alongside an old idol of mine from Square One TV (settle down with the "NERD" catcalls, shall we?), rehearsed for a cool new show, and finished reading the entire Harry Potter series from start to finish. Hello, WIN!
This past year was the Year of the Ox, according to the Chinese Zodiac. The Ox's slogan is, "I Perservere". Yah. That's about right. But you know what we're coming upon THIS year? The frickin' METAL TIGER! RAWR! Shouldn't that be the name of some badass hair band from the '80s? METAL TIGER! Somebody break a guitar for me in the background there.
So I'm super stoked about 2010. Hope you are, too.
