This time last year I was marveling at the wild changes 2009 had brought me.

Little did I know.

I got a job, I got left, I got fired, I got a penchant for hobo booze, I got a book published, I got a job and moved to the other side of the country, I got two bands, then broke them up, then got an acoustic guitar and released some songs.

After what this year has brought me I know better than to marvel, and I definitely know better than to make predictions, because I'm the last person who could guess what happens now.

It's 2011. Let's do this.
