  1. You gotta admit that 2003 was a personally exciting year. I mean, right? In a way? Everything new, fresh, exciting? No?

  2. In a way, definitely, but I gave 2002 (#8) the credit for the move to New York. 2003 was the drudgery/poverty that immediately followed.

  3. I don’t understand why 2001 is worse than living behind a curtain stapled to the ceiling. I mean, I saw that curtain. And drudgery? Poverty? What’s worse than that?

  4. Hey, you had a friend in Brooklyn in 2003! I think he worked at Taco Bell…

  5. Alyce: 9/11 was worse than that. Emily: You’re right, I knew you! You’re not responsible for 2003’s badness.

  6. How about the fact that you interned in Washington, DC with a fantastically interesting group of people in 2001. Doesn’t that at least partly redeem the year, strictly from a Ruth Graham perspective?
