Phoblog's Year in Review

Lessons from '04

  • January: For a government nerd, paradise bears a striking resemblance to the bar at the Holiday Inn in Manchvegas.
  • February: If you want to understand what something is, try it yourself.
  • March: Never ask a question the answer to which you do not want to know.
  • April: Springtime in the State Capitol is lovely and temperate. Unlike budget battles.
  • May: Such a pleasant month when unmarred by finals.
  • June: Turns out I may be able to do this lawyering thing after all (p.s. who wants to hire Phoblog this summer? I thought I'd be studying for the Bar, but now I have to get another job. Believe it or not, I don't get paid to be a witty, intellectually stimulating blogger. I know, it shocks me too.)
  • July: When planning a convention, choose your theme carefully.
  • August: Two days of volunteer work can plant one hell of a big seed.
  • September: Montani Semper Liberi.
  • October: From country roads to the streets of Philly, America is easy to find if you get out there and look for it.
  • November: Losing sucks.
  • December: There's always more work to be done. And plenty of reasons to believe that this year may be better than the last.

And, of course, we'd like to thank the following people for making 2004 memorable, wonderful, productive, educational, and noteworthy: my parents; JP; JP; KR; SC; Josh Orum (for fixing my site everytime I break it, which is often); all-star readers BF, SK, JW, JG, JB, LJ (despite a disappointing lack of posting and linking lately), AT, NT, CP, MS, and everyone who doesn't leave a hello but still checks in; MH; CYD; CMC; all my fellow campaign staff alumni; and the entire state of West Virginia.
