And those are just the first awesome things that come to mind; there were also countless if less remarkable great runs, great nights out, great times with my family. While I was busy feeling bad for myself, I was actually having the best year ever! Of course, it took a little perspective to realize it, but that's sort of the point. Sometimes shitty things happen. But if you spend all your time wallowing over those shitty things, you won't even realize it when the good stuff starts happening again. And it will, trust me.

And now, for the final wrap up of 2012...
