I was never a winter person. In fact, although I like to think of myself as a perfectly logical human being, I get a bit morbid during the cold months. Nothing good ever happens during winter. But don’t tell anyone I told you that.
What I got to feel this year was different. First it was the Jasmine Revolution, then it was January 25, and holy crap, for the first time in my life, not only do I get to have a good January, I was also plastered to news sources (read: Twitter) in complete awe of the world. For the first time during my 25 years of life on this world, something good happens in our region that has nothing to do with a team making it to the World Cup or someone winning a music competition. But we already discussed that, didn’t we?

I know the monthly picture post is very late, but it has not even crossed my mind this month. I mean, damn.
But anyway… I’ve been good this year, I don’t want to miss the monthly post.
So here goes. Between being surgically attached to Twitter and flipping maniacally though news channels, my January was this: awestruck.
See you in February.
Can you really archive time?
