So This Is the New Year?

Who has two thumbs and still quotes Death Cab from like 5 years ago?

Anyway, it’s 2012.  I can’t even muster an exclamation point.  The world might end this year, but I have a feeling not.  And trust me, I’m pretty good about these feelings.  I rang in 2012 in much the same spirit that characterized 2011 for me: apathy.  I think I peaked in 2010, and 2011 just couldn’t cut it. 

I know, I’m such a bummer!  What can I say, the post has a Death Cab lyric for a title, you knew what you were getting.  And it was a bummer year.  Things stagnated.  I was rudely disabused of whatever notions I had of myself after college.  I remain at the same listless job, I’ve run out of things to write about for Patch, most of my friends have moved away, and things just suck.  There was a lot of meaninglessness and a healthy dose of self-pity, which I’d love to resolve to quit, but I’m still having a 2011 pity-party hangover. 

It better get better, 2012.  Or if the world’s gonna end, I better at least get fired and have a few months of (f)unemployment before we call it quits.
