Happy New Year, World.

This is my favorite holiday. One of the reasons is that it’s celebrated by throngs of people hour by hour all day around the world. So, in the spirit of international celebration…

Goodbye 2012, you had so much Gangnam Style, as far as I was concerned.

Thank you to all my friends, readers, and students for such an incredible year. So many great people were a part of my life this year that I am sort of overwhelmed with gratitude when I reflect back on it. They (including maybe you) have made it amazing and one of the best of my life thus far. Enjoy some of my favorite super popular videos of this year.

See You In 2013!
