The First Day of the Rest of My Life

Thursday, December 29, 2005

Pico did this in his private LJ (all the cool kids are going "friends-only," it seems...), I figured it'd be fun to give it a shot.

"2005 is going to be a good year."- Pico, in a comment on my post on Jan. 2.

Kissed my ex in Austin to ring in 2005. Became a participant in the National Body Challenge. Got a job. Quit Started studying for my Series 6 exam.

Find out about the wonders of teledildonics. Continue studying financial topics. Start becoming a gym rat.

Go to truly unbelievable lengths for a booty call. Become angry with my alma mater when I find they're bringing in Ryan Cabrera for a concert on campus. See one of the Real World kids in the flesh, drinking and keeping homely girls at arm's length.

"Reached out and touched" a young lady at a bar. Spent a day with V learning new and wonderful things about Catholicism, followed by my falling asleep during Mass. Celebrated a gal's 21st birthday by taking her out for drinks and other such activities.

Quit my job. Turned 27. Celebrated with friends, one of whom had his car damaged. Hooked up with my ex. Saw my cousin graduate from a prestigious private math and science high school in North Carolina. Petted goats. Fed a horse. Shared a hotel room with my parents (and, thanks to their snoring, got no sleep). Got a job offer.

Started a new job. Traveled to Corpus Christi to see two friends of mine get married. Got my first foreign postcard. Celebrated the Spurs' 3rd championship.

Hung out a lot with Suzanne.

Passed my Series 7 test (in about 1/2 to 1/3 of the time it took for me to take my Series 6 at the previous job). Saw John Legend in person. Saw G off.

My highest-paying job ever became even more high-paying. Became overly familiar with storm systems.

Saw B.B. King in concert. Saw a Henry Rollins spoken word show. Made my ex think I was going to propose to her. Went to a weekend retreat during the weekend of the Texas-OU game, wherein I broke up with Suzanne, witnessed a near-possesion, and played silly games. Planned an elaborate road trip, and had said plans dashed after protests from my folks.

Ended up in Portland. Saw mountains, the Pacific Ocean, and Saucy-Drunk Suse. Got a number at a bar less than an hour after running into my ex at the same bar. Worked on Thanksgiving.

Enjoyed a pretty good Christmas. Started seeing someone new. Started talks to buy a condo.

You know, Pico... I think you were right after all.


  • dude, that is a pretty good year. in comparison, my hear had a lot of low points! congrats. maybe we should both do plans for 2006... because why shouldn't that be a good year too, right?
