As you may remember, the 2nd half of 2006 was a personal low-point for me in almost every way... probably the worst 5 or 6 months I had in a row for over a decade.
It really wouldn't have been difficult for anything to be better than that.
So while it's not really possible for me to say that '07 was a spectacularly amazing year for me... it was a whole lot better in it's overall average uninterestingness than the horror show that '06 turned out to be.
At least I'm not ending the year in a gloomy depression this time around. A bit bored and lonely, perhaps... but at least not grimly questioning the futility of my own existence.
That has to count for something.
