2011 is almost over. It’s been a year of tremendous change and suck. For me personally, not so bad. I expect 2012 to be even more turbulent. I’ve had a habit of giving years names. I’ll have to look through my previous LJ posts to see what I named them. Generally, I wait a few months to see how the year is shaping up before giving it one. Well, I’m not going to wait. I’m going to call it now: 2012 The Year of Suck. That’s probably wimping out. We’ve seen tremendous upheaval in countries around the world, the Euro Crisis, the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street. We’ve seen disaster after disaster, Texas mega drought, Hurricane Irene, Japanese tsunami and Fukushima nuclear meltdown.

I’ll try to expand on my thoughts later, but don’t hold your breath.

It’s later. The only thing that isn’t going to suck might be the movies scheduled to be released. Well, I hope not. Movie trailers often look better than the movie, but 2012 may turn out to be a banner year for films: The Hobbit, John Carter and Prometheus so far.
