Whether you like it or not, this year is coming to an end. If I were to think of a word that describes the year in general, it would be "stagnation" in many senses - for myself, for Japan, and for the world, not specifically though. Hopefully, things will go for the better next year.
And speaking of my blogging, it didn't necessarily go smoothly this year as compared with last year - a kind of self-made crisis in May and rather sporadic updates. But the great thing is, I was fortunate to have new blogging friends this year, too. And of course, I'm thankful to my long-time fellow bloggers as well.
This will probably be the last entry of the year. So, as always,
Thank you for visiting my site. It's really fun blogging with you.
Have a great New Year's Day, folks. And yoroshiku for the year 2004, too!
