Flashback: Dudes. Miss me?

Editor's note: Looks like I did try to start over back in August 2010, so I'm not a total slacker. Then again, I never published this post, so I guess I am. Anyway, enjoy this Rewind Thursday post, and let's all be grateful that 2011 has been a much better year!

Well. I don't know what to say for myself, really. It's been a long time. 2010 has been quite the Mind Bender. And while we're referencing roller coasters, let's just say there have been lots of highs and lows, dips and curves, top speeds and hard brakes.

This year has given new meaning to "Buckle up. It's going to be a bumpy ride."

Sometimes I really do wish for a dull life. But a dull life doesn't make good stories.

There's no way I can catch y'all up in a blog post. I tried. It was approximately eleventy billion computer pages long. Instead, here's a little photo mosaic and a soundtrack for my life these past six months or so.
