Best Of 2007

This is a meme idea I picked up from LiveJournal user "eh_notsomuch," only modified to fit my own ends. The original meme idea was to list the first post of each month in the year 2007 to show how you've grown. The problem was that my posts aren't always reflections of my personal life, and some of the first posts of different months were crap and some were waaay too long to reprint in a recap. Instead, I scoured each month and chose a few posts that stuck out in my mind as being absolute favorites. You may or may not agree with my selections, but they are the ones I was most proud of, excluding any forum raids, because I could have probably listed all of those. They're still one of my favorite things to do.

Overall, I think September was my worst month. I found it really hard to choose anything from that month that really stood out. December was the worst following that, but that was only due to my complete creative breakdown. There were others I could have chosen from each month. I think I made a fair amount of poignant posts, too, but in retrospect, I was proudest of the humorous ones, and of those I enjoyed the list posts the most.
