Happy New Year!
It’s 2:46 in the morning. Currently, I’m ripping songs onto Itunes in anticipation of the Ipod I finally garnered the guts (and the Christmas money) to purchase. Scott, and Jenna the Ipod, would be so proud.
I’ve had a great 2005. In fact, aside from a few sad items, this year turned out better than any that I can remember.
I’ve experienced the new wave in entertainment with satellite radio, I’ve seen the rise and fall of my beloved sports teams, and I’ve begun, thanks to a schedule change, to enjoy my job more than I ever did.
I’ve followed my dreams and developed new ones. I’ve become an “amateur” writer – not just a guy that can write, but a guy that DOES write, and does it for the pure enjoyment (though, admittedly, I’d love to be paid for it.)
I’ve looked into being a journalist. I’ve looked into being a bookstore owner. I’ve looked into being a sports writer. I’ve looked into being a magazine contributor. I’ve even succeeded at dipping my beak into some of the waters mentioned just now.
I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, so I’ll save you from that. However, I do know that I’m ready to make the jump into something more productive. I’m ready to make this blog better, wider in its scope, and, ultimately, get it ready for a nationwide audience that may, perhaps, want to know more about a kid in South Dakota whose dreams seem to be bigger than his ability at times but who never lets that stand in his way.
Happy New Year, everyone.
