Can it really be a year since the start of 2004? YES!
There’s no escaping it, 2005 has started and that means time has run out for the things we said we’d do in 2004. I read that 2005 is the year of the Green Chicken, which is still in the metal series, so your luck should be a continuation of last year, and any unfinished business should be finished this year. It feels like that to me, a continuation of last year.
2004 felt like a new start, a new beginning, new opportunity, 2005 feels like same old.
