New Year, New Apartment and Macworld 2009

Happy almost 2009! The last few months of my life have been CRAZY and the next 12 days look to be even more insane!

I know, I know — I’m like the world’s worst blog-updater. What­ever, I think I’ve earned a reprieve — as I’ll explain below.

First things first: Happy almost 2009! The last few months of my life have been CRAZY and the next 12 days look to be even more insane! I wish every­one a joy­ous and excit­ing 2009, with a spe­cial finger-crossed wish that the US hous­ing indus­try gets back on-track (or at least, more on-track). My dad is a builder/developer, so I clearly have a per­sonal con­nec­tion to this whole cri­sis, but truly, the econ­omy as a whole won’t be able to bounce back until hous­ing gets out of the weeds.

But on to more pleas­ant topics:

The last few weeks have been an absolute whirl­wind. Chrit­mas (Merry Christ­mas every­one!), work­ing, pack­ing and just yes­ter­day — mov­ing into a gor­geous, huge, awe­some apart­ment with my one and only. We were orig­i­nally sched­uled to move on Jan­u­ary 2 — thank­fully we were able to take pos­ses­sion of our new unit early and move earlier.

I leave for Mac­world 2009 on Sun­day Jan­u­ary 4, 2009. Wow, that’s like 5 says away. Freaky. I’m going on behalf of TUAW and I’m ecsta­tic that I’ll finally get to meet a bunch of my fel­low blog­gers in per­son for the first time!

The new apart­ment is awe­some. It’s more than twice the size of our old place (where I lived for 5 and a half years — my entire early twen­ties were in that apart­ment!) but in the same com­plex and it has an amaz­ing, amaz­ing floor­plan. I have pho­tos that I’ll upload to Flickr as soon as I can find my cam­era adap­tor. Still unpacking.

Any­hoo, New Years Eve is tomor­row night and I’ll be a mix of unpack­ing, pack­ing and other such stuff until then. So I won’t be able to do my usual yearly New Year post (well, prob­a­bly not), so I’ll just say it now:

Happy New Year!


Alltop, all the cool kids (and me)
