Last year, I vowed I would begin work on my novel "Alone Together". And I have. Got a big chunk of the first draft written down during National Novel Writing Month, which I also completed for the first time this year.
I lost a lot of friends. A lot of people I thought were irreplaceable, vital parts of my life, when I needed them the most.
I saw people like Mike Krahulik and Gail Simone shit all over their audience and get rewarded for it.
The movie, novel, music, game and porn industries practically collapsed, and I say good riddance. Nothing of value has been lost. There was a time when all of those things mattered, and allowed artists to produce meaningful content. That age died along with them, along with justice and mercy.
I lost whatever hope or faith I had in human beings.
Also, Roger Ebert and Nelson Mandela died.
This year marked the turning point when I stopped mourning for the death of humanity, and decided it deserved to die. I'm glad it's dead. I'm glad there's no hope for this ignorant, selfish species.
But Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead were cool tv shows.
Next year I'm gonna try to upgrade my computer to play all of the stuff I bought during the Steam holiday sales.
I still have a few people to draw belated Xmas fanart for.
I made peace one person who I wronged in the past.
I ran into my best friend at a grocery store for the first time in almost ten years.
I'll see you in hell, 2013.
