2008 – Top 15 Blog Posts at No Borders | No Binaries
This personal blog has approached one year of existence on the Internet. Whereas I had never really expected to get half the number of blog readers and I haven’t kept up on blogging (or writing) this month due to various reasons (out of town, illness, over-worked), I remain committed to getting back in gear in the coming year.
It will certainly be a busy year — I will be working full-time on the national DREAM Act campaign with the United We DREAM coalition. And I am looking forward to May, when Prop 8 is overturned and a great LGBT Pride celebration in June following that. In the latter half of the year, I finally get to petition the a$$holes at USCIS for American residency again, and in October 2009, I will be applying to law schools for 2010 (postponed again for the final time). And I will be a quarter century old next December.
Here is a round-up of 15 posts that I think were well-written and deserve a revisiting.
