Que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be, but first I need more coffee.

Tag: 2011


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.

Where has the year gone?

Personally 2010 has been a decent year. I picked up a few new clients and I’m staying busy. We’ve been in our new house for one year. Had a lot of work done but there’s still more to be done. All minor repairs. However, for the US and the world in general 2010 has been the suck. And 2011 is shaping up to be a disastrous year. I named 2010 The Year of Destruction back in May and it has lived up to it’s name. I’m going to go ahead and name 2011 The Year of Needless Suffering.
