Didn’t 2008 Just Fly By?

gravelly point

2008 may have just been the fastest year of my life. Seriously, where did the time go? My roommate and I were driving somewhere today and I looked down at my car inspection sticker and it’s been almost a year since I got my car! It honestly feels like it was just yesterday.

All kinds of crazy things happened to me in 2008 – I was laid off from my job, got a new one, had someone hit me in a hit and run accident, Obama won, I landed a super hot boyfriend (yay!), joined the WLDC staff and generally had a raucous good time.

So how about you? Was 2008 gone in a flash? Did it speed by for you like it did for me? In a day filled with retrospection, what’s yours?

  1. In my general opinion, 2008 can take its shtick and go somewhere else. Sure, we got out from under the thumb of the authoritarians at Metblogs, which has had numerous awesome events associated with it, but there’s been a lot to 2008 I will gladly turn the corner on. I’m really just hoping for a more stable 2009.

  2. I got engaged to a WLDC writer in 2008, so it will always be a fondly remembered year for me.
