Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Today a year ago I met Leonard. Today a year ago I was a junior, I had not yet met Jeana or Steve or Zack or John or Zack, I had been seeing a counselor at Counseling and Psychological Services about once a week for a few months, I had barely started my weblog over at kuro5hin, I had not yet taught Politics in Modern Science Fiction, Clinton was still President, I saw Dan every day, I had never been to Bakersfield or Russia, I had no cell phone and no Moxy Früvous CDs, my hair came down to about my ears, and (it's safe to say) I spent less than fifteen bucks a week on BART tickets.

I like myself better this year.
