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.
