2008: Part One

In November, as 2008 started to wind down to completion, and I started to reflect on anniversaries, I started to think about how I would remember the year that was 2008. Clearly already a big year in my life, the month of December obviously became one of the most transitional of my entire life.

But, throughout the drama and sadness, came a lot of good times and the opportunity to meet a lot of great people.  So, in the interest of recapping this year, join me in a look back at 2008 – in photos, videos, and blog posts, and I hope you’ll share some of your 2008 memories in the comments. This is the first in a two part series. With that, here we go.


  • I started January in a new apartment, in a new job, and with a lot of questions. And, at this point, no blog, so nothing of interest to show you. Move along, nothing to see here.
  • Well, except that Marissa was on her way to lifelong-friendy-ness.
  • And by now, Caroline McCarthy has introduced me to Brett Petersel and the flood of awesome new faces has started






Stay tuned for part two soon!


  1. Loves it!

    It was a great year Mr. Knell and I’ll glad to be a part of it and meet you (and also to make part One!)

    Only fabulous things for you in 2009, I require it 🙂

  2. looks like you’ve had a pretty good year Matt. I’m glad I had the opportunity to meet you and become friends. Thanks for introducing me into some truly great people. Looking forward to 2009 and looking forward to getting to hang out soon.
