2002 Musings-Happy New Year to those of you in Europe and the Australia-Philippines time brackets. I'm not going to make any grand predictions, but just reflect on what 2002 has meant. On a personal note, I'm living a delayed dream, getting married and being a college professor, albiet a bit later than I might have liked a decade ago. Spending New Years sweating in Winter Haven wasn't what I would have counted on a year ago; bundling up in Saginaw or Bridgeport would have seemed more like it.
The blogging that started in January has expanded new horizons for me. Over a hundred strangers a day wander on to my site on average to read what I have to say about stuff. I would up making pen pals around the world, from computer programmers in the Philippines to Canadian and Australian journalists. I wind up getting into a fantasy football league of bloggers, beating a Maryland lawyer and a Virginia Tech college student en route to a finals loss to a HHS Department speechwriter.
All in all, not a bad year.
