2013, you were, well, not a mess, but a never-ending row of just one damned thing after another.

I know you did a lot for me, and I even managed to regain some of the energy that 2012 cost me, but with you, there was never a moment a person could feel safe and comfortable.

You cost me friends, actually about half of my support system (but you brought one back), you were cold when I needed spring flowers, you flooded everyone's cellar but mine, you burned through Summer so that I still have the tan lines, you pulled this way and that and never gave it a rest, and ambushed me with holiday stress just when I thought that it was done.

Your every work day had me blindly navigate the hills and crevices of a system implemented by the forces of change and chaos, that shifted underfoot as I lumbered along, until I was barely able to move, and then you changed it with something fun and challenging and made it three times the size I could sanely manage.

I never really knew what to do with you, but now the question is, fortunately, out of my hands. Whatever we had, it's over. You go wherever used up time goes, and I look at 2014 crawling nearer by the minute with a deeper distrust than I looked at you, 365 days back.

Anyway, a Happy New Year to everyone!
