Before you go, 2008, I want to give you a sincere goodbye. Really. I'm glad you are going. The sooner 2009 gets here, the happier we will all be.
You weren't completely awful, 2008. You did redeem yourself with the Obama win (though, you still need to explain to me Prop 8). However, all the promise you had at the beginning fell flat. There's no need to go over all the wrongs, the insults, the humiliations. No. I think CNN has something on that. I suppose the only one who needs to learn the lessons is me. And I will.
Yes, 2008, it's over. I bid you farewell. I know that 2009 will be everything you refused to be and more. I will see to that.
