Then, And Now

The start of the F1 season this year got me to thinking. A year ago I read that Toyota had picked up a point in the first F1 race of the year. At the time I thought, "oh, that's nice. What the heck does that mean??"

This year, thanks to GT3 and WRC, I know exactly what they are talking about.

What a difference a year makes.

This seems like as good a time as any to pause and see what's happened in the last year.

As much as it may surprise some people given my current enthusiasm for the sport, I first heard about the existence of rallying about a year ago -- though I didn't get a chance to watch any until this past October.

About a year ago, I first overcame my dread over how bad IniD fanfics could be, and started reading a site dedicated to pointing out how bad IniD fanfics can be. Ironic, huh?

A year ago, I only had one ticket on my record. *sniff* *sniff*

About a year ago, the thought first started wandering through my head that I should spend more time with my best friend's parents, since they're getting older, and won't be around forever. Sometimes a year isn't that long a time, no matter how long it seems.

A year ago I would have sworn that I wouldn't still be working at my current job.

I bought my TiVo about a year ago. Right now, I'm wondering how I used to live without it, since it's busy recording something else, and I want to be able to back things up. Grr.

About a year ago was the last time I worked on an AMV. I need to get back to that at some point.

A year ago, I was working through the end of Kamen Rider Agito. Mmm, good stuff. ^_^

A year ago, I would have sworn that I don't like motorsports. Now I'm sitting and eating pizza and watching F1. I feel so... mainstream. *shiver*

    If you wrote off this year's Kamen Rider because the fruit theme or because the first several episodes were thoroughly silly, give it another try.…

    For reasons I go into below I decided for the first time in a long time to see what the folks who made Ultraman Moebius have been up to lately. I…

    Let's see if my 11th hour Hail Mary manages to redeem the disaster the last nine months have been. *crosses fingers* In related news, 2014 seems to…
