Painted door featuring the word "exit" found in the trash
down the street from my house on Jan. 1, 2009
  1. Architect my own successes, in other words
  2. Be the
  3. Cause for things to go

  7. Going to lose my job because it
  8. Happened on two different Januarys in the 00's.
  9. It doesn't help that former exorcist, Republican sweetheart, and Louisiana Governor Bobby
  10. Jindal has implemented cuts to higher education and that is where I am employed, recently so at that.

  23. World through the warped lens of an-
  24. Xiety only
  25. Yields a warped reality. Thus, I am considering 2009 a
  26. Zone where things are vivid and clear.
