It's been a long time, now 2013 is coming back home. It's making way for 2014 to begin its magical journey through the realm of present space and time, and as these past 365 days come to a close, a whole new set of lovely experiences are set to be had within the same day parameter! Or, in a surprisingly less strange way for me to word it as I am Jonno and offbeat is partially my thing around these parts, it's 2014 now (for most of us) as of this posting! Happy 2014! Happy New Year, everybody! It's been a crazy, upside-down, rightside-up, tumultuous, boring, never-quite-boring, not-so-brilliant, brilliant, fantastic, not-so-fantastic, exciting, pretty much amazing in its twist and turns and overall wondrous year for better or for worse, for rich or for poor, in sickness and in health, and with or without The Faces of Eebit. Without a doubt have we all as individual human beings overcome a bevy of obstacles thrown our way while preparing for the next set to come right on towards us. Without a doubt have these experiences, both good and bad, shaped us into a fuller people at the end of the day-- ones who are hopefully more eager to take on the next whole year ahead! I know I've gone through my fair share that I'll likely share for the most part with you all in a future Real Talk post, but at the end of it all, what I mainly want to do is wish you all all of the love and successes that you deserve in 2014! I'm thankful to have gotten to know all of you a little better this year, and am totally glad to call some of you very good friends. Overall, ZEJ has had its stumbling points, but I'm glad that we are, for the most part, a sturdy and stable community. Not every forum can say that! Way back in the day, Zantok, Eebit, and I decided to kick-start this little set of boards that could, and boy am I sure glad that we did. To all of you once more, happy 2014, and may the odds forever be in your favor!
