I don't like new years resolutions. Most people tend to give something up, some guilty pleasure. 6 months later (or usually less) the resolution is long forgotten. For me, i'm going to commit to changing something, actually two things. I will be more patient, and more outgoing. Both will serve me well here, personally and professionally, and both are things i am lacking in.
The BBC and CNN (the only 2 English stations i get) are filled with “year in review” pieces right now. Who died, tsunamis, hurricanes, elections, what gadgets were popular etc. etc. etc. I already saw it reported once, i don't need to relive the hype of all this news. I think 24Hr “news” stations are one of the worst innovations of our time. I thought of putting my own list of what i thought were the most important news stories of the year, but i want to be part of the solution, not the problem.
To try something new, i thought I'd post a “Corrigan year in review”. The highlights of my last 12 months. Maybe it's not as interesting as CNN's, and maybe I don't quite have the distribution of the BBC, but i have some cool pics and even better memories! Without further adue....Corrigan year in review
