And what a year it’s been.
In my professional and personal life, I will always look back at 1996 as a year of renewed prosperity. I began the year in a dead-end job in radio — at a station that really didn’t want me around unless someone was sick and they were like “come fill in or else”. I ended the year with that station in my proverbial rear-view mirror while taking on new responsibilities at WDAM-TV and Rock 104.
While the professional life was great in 2002 (currently taking a break from it as I burn up my final week of vacation for this year), the same couldn’t be said in the personal life. I had been through a real dry spell in the dating world and whenever I did date someone, she was either a complete idiot or wanted to get married within 6 months (not a good move!).
So along came the late spring and early summer of therapy. Just hang out. Chat. Take it easy.
While I took that route, here comes Miss Circle. We took things real slow at first — but really enjoying our relationship now.
Only problem: She’s not here in South Mississippi to celebrate 5 months as a couple. She’s visiting relatives in Ohio on her holiday break.
What will ’03 hold for Miss Circle and I? Stay tuned. Happy new year, everybody!
