My year in first sentences

It's that time of year again; where [livejournal.com profile] silmaril has already done one of these, and I feel inspired.

Here is the year that was. First sentence of a posting in a month for each paragraph. Commentary afterwards.

…or How Robert M. Pirsig broke my brain…

So it turns out my english conforms to the american english dialect spoken in «New York City»

Bolded where applicable.

Yesterday I was social for the first time.

May 14 this year, the triennal Quarnevalen occurred again in Stockholm.

As so often otherwise, stolen from [livejournal.com profile] silmaril.

I have now started settling in my apartment in Edinburgh, and along the way, I've stumbled across a number of things well worth documenting for the all-knowing interwebs.

Inspired by [livejournal.com profile] turnberryknkn's post about seeing the light at the end of his tunnel, for all my US friends, here are some major timings to keep track of in my life:

So I have lived in a few places by now: Stockholm, Nürnberg, Jena, San Francisco, Edinburgh (though barely this as of yet).

Since the Assange case is making the rounds again, once again I cringe at seeing my twitter feed, and many people I have great respect for saying things that betray fundamental misperceptions about what's going on in Sweden about the whole mess...

This year my presence on LiveJournal has been low. I averaged maybe 2 posts a month, and many of them were memes. That said, I tended to post about important personal things, and some rants. At least one post in this list was directly related to my photo hobby, one post to my health, and one post to current politics and People Being Annoying On The Internet.

During the year, I have had a much more prolific presence on Twitter, on Facebook, and even — in spite of the #nymwars — on Google+. I still read LiveJournal a lot, and follow everyone else; it's just not my own main outlet any more.
