It’s been a little over a year now since the last time anything was posted on here, and if there ever were avid readers, sorry about that, and for anyone who hated everything on here, you’re welcome (but do brighten up). Despite a total lack of activity, there have been over 14 thousand page views in this time, so thanks must go to my family for sitting down and hitting refresh about 13990 times, and thank you to the remainder of the people who wound up here, presumably due to some typo or cat-on-keyboard style incident.
And what a year it’s been.
While this site has been gathering dust in some small crevice of the internet, the world at large hasn’t stopped to draw breath. Imagine trying to explain the last year to somebody who’s been in a coma; where would you even begin? Perhaps with the resignation of the Bulgarian Prime Minister, or maybe the Zika crisis. How about Myanmar holding its first democratic elections, the reveal of the Panama Papers or the world being subjected to the release of Batman Vs Superman. And what about the news that humanity has been drinking beer since 3400 BC, or exploding Samsung’s, and of course Leicester City’s unbelievable triumph. The fifty-day phenomenon of Pokémon Go, Tim Peake on the ISS, Brexit and all that jazz, the small matter of the Rio Olympics, a 392-year-old shark and a dead gorilla. Of course, that’s all even without mentioning that Donald Trump has gone from punchline to President-Elect. Yeah, it’s been one busy year.
Who knows what the next year and the entire infinite amount of time that follows will bring (hopefully a few less celebrity deaths). All I can say is that this particular monkey is sitting back down in front of his figurative typewriter and gearing up to smash away at the keys…
