2009: A Year In Review

4219923214_11671894e2Despite the deaths of superstars Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Patrick Swayze, Brittany Murphy and David Carradine, 2009 was a great year.

I mean, let’s discuss all the good things that happened. There was… um… that thing… with that guy… in that place…

OK. So, maybe 2009 sucked.

Well, that’s being a little vague, I suppose. A quick Google search of “2009 events” showed the year to be quite eventful.

  • Barack Obama was inaugurated, becoming the first black president.
  • Iowa and Vermont legalized same sex marriage.
  • Tiger Woods was hit in the head with a golf club, proving irony is still amusing.

(This is the part where I side-step the global economic crisis, H1N1 and the continuing conflicts in the middle east. A-hem.)

For me personally, it was good. I finished my first year of college, I did a 4-week internship at a daily newspaper and didn’t get hit by a car. So, all of those things are pretty positive in my opinion.

With that being said, Happy New Year! Let’s hope 2010 is better than this year was.
