I guess it’s become pretty standard for us all to reflect on the year that passed and get all sappy and thank everyone that helped us through the year. To that end, I immensely appreciate all of you that have supported me in the single biggest year of change in my life and all of my work on FOOTPRINTS and at IGN. I love you guys, from the bottom of heart. I honestly, truly do.
However, something always rubbed me the wrong way about reflecting on the year that was. Maybe that’s why I’ve always had a distaste for the New Years kerfuffle. I was proud of what I accomplished in 2010, but guess what? 2011 kicked its ass. I’m hoping that 2012 is about to do the same to 2011. As I mentioned before, 2011 saw more change in my life than ever before — new job, cross-country move, diminishing bank account, my first published comic — but I’m not interested in remembering the last year, I want to look forward to the next one. I want to do BETTER work, write MORE comics, and be generally more productive with my time.
And also, if you follow me on Twitter, you probably know how much I bitch and moan about LA. Yes, I hate it here. But I’m here for a job I love, so it’s time to suck it up and make the best of it.
With all that said, it’s time to GTFO 2011, because I’m ready to punch 2012 square in its groin.
Onto bigger and better everyone — Happy New Year.
