The Year in Review

I realize that this post is pretty vague and not entirely entertaining. The thing of it is, though, that I don't really care. This year was pretty much the best year of my life. It was the kind of year where I could literally feel myself growing (both physically and emotionally.) While not free of tragedy, there is nothing about 2010 that I would change.

Here's the low-down of what happened in 2010:

  • New Year's Day - Told brothers that I'm gay.
  • Moved in with my new best buddy, Richie.
  • January 31st - Threw a sweet substitute party in lieu of my brother's wedding. I'm the best best-man there ever was at a wedding that didn't happen.
  • Valentine's Day - Told my parents that I'm gay, received Bon Jovi's Greatest Hits album.
  • My little sister turned twelve.
  • I went on a road trip to Disneyland/Something Corporate with my buds Richie and Melissa.
  • First hangover?
  • First experience at the Pride festival, see previous blog.
  • Solo road trip to Wyoming/Idaho.
  • 4th of July: first time introducing a boy to my parents and grandma. Quote from grandma - "Your friend is nice."
  • Turned 22.
  • Grandpa Wood passed away. He had a huge impact on the lives of many, all for the better.
  • Started new position at the bank. Love it.
  • Worked hard.
  • Worked harder.
  • Reprised my role as "Santa Clause" at a friend's family Christmas Eve party, still hated Christmas.
2011 will be just as good, if not better.
