2011 in review
Yeah, I’m a bit late, but whatever. Every January I get so nostalgic. The holidays are officially over and everyone goes back to real life. 2011 was a year I’ll never forget. The following is everything that I can recall.
January: Meeting Emily for the first time ever.
March: New York with Allison and Brad. Seeing my dad and his side of the family after almost a whole year. Witnessing Brad eat an entire slice of pizza in three bites. Watching every Zach Galifianakis video on the internet. Staying up for 24 hours straight talking with Allison.
May: Memorial Weekend in Vegas and Phoenix with Emily. Pool parties. Sharks playoffs.
July: Moving into SF. Strobe Fancy Friday. Skype chats, all of the Skype chats.
August: Outside Lands 2011. Strobe outing to Monterey. Zip lining. Motion City Soundtrack , two nights, four albums.
September: Last minute trip to LA for Labor Day weekend. Spending every waking second with Helen and Viri. Drinking just about every night for two weeks. Brand New at the Regency. VIP at Two Door Cinema Club. Finally learning to ride a bike.
December: My big 26 in Vegas. Moving, again. Christmas with the Family. The Kooks at the Fillmore. Sharks vs Oilers and Sharks vs Canucks. All the drinks with friends all the time. Cutting all my hair off. Mr. Smiths for New Years with champagne and pizza.
Clearly, I skipped months. I tried to only put the interesting, positive things in. Honestly, this year has been a roller coaster. I take the good with the bad. There has been a lot of sadness and heartache this past year, but overall, I’m happy the way things have all played out. Overall, it’s been a good year. I accomplished a lot, sufficiently grew as a person. Everyone I love and care for made it through the year, with the exception of my uncle. When you’ve had the year that I’ve had, and you can still look back with a smile on your face, you really can’t ask for anything else.
