It’s that time again – time to “ring in the new year” and celebrate the kickoff of the next 365 days. There will be champagne, noisemakers, food and silly hats. There will be counting and ball-dropping and kissing. With any luck, it’ll be the last year whose double-consecutive-zeros appear in countless pairs of novelty glasses.
There are plenty of bloggers (among others) out there recapping 2008, and probably an equal number making predictions, listing resolutions or setting goals for 2009. Looking back at past DaveRea.com new year’s posts in close proximity to the last three new-year’s celebrations, it’s interesting to observe just how life has evolved.
In lieu of listing all the ways my life has changed over the last year – there are 12 months’ worth of archives to account for that – I’m curious what you see when you look back on 2008. How were you different the last time you tuned in the Times Square new-year’s broadcast? How do you think you might change between now and the final ten-second countdown to 2010?
