2010: A Retrospective

A benefit of keeping a blog is that it lets you look back on significant events that have happened. I did a retrospective for 2009, so I thought I'd do the same again for 2010.

In comparison, this year was nowhere nearly as eventful as the last. For one thing, I didn't get into any serious accidents (for which I should be thankful).

At the tail end of last year, I met someone special. Looking back on this year, I see that she's really what's kept me occupied all this time. You won't see it in the list below, but this year, I think I lived more.

And, of course, I proposed. And got engaged. Two things I never really expected to happen.
