well, it's a new year. yippee. i guess i need to do the year in review type thing... sure, why not.
jan: my car breaks down, my computer dies, and nothing else really awesome or interesting happens. meh.
feb: have a "no aids" party and try to just stay posi all month. nothing really happened too interesting.
march: another really boring month. start shredding again on a serious note.
april: break my wrist, meet a girl.
may: one of the best months i've had in a long ass time. all kinds of good, not much (if any) bad at all. didn't sleep a lot this month, did hang out all the time and was just generally happy.
june: the fest! tons of fun this month, though it did set the tone for a big upset near the end when i went bankrupt for a while.
july: my birthday and the events around it are awesome. todd dies. the events around the end of the month weren't so great.
august: never mind.
september: a new quarter, trying to get past august and partially succeeding.
october: another boring month, not a lot happened.
november: this month was all hangouts and fun. yes.
december: bittersweet. new and old friends move. money problems all month. but a good group of friends and some kickass times made this month just awesome.
so 2005, how will i miss you? i will miss the good times, the long nights spent talking and loving, the sitting with a group of people you love and care about and just shooting the shit or not saying anything at all. everyone around me was great, but real shout outs go to some specific and special people who made this year awesome and from keeping me sane when i needed it most:
evan, lindsey, ryan, robot lawson, and kevin merryman: i didn't know any of you all that well before 2005. i've spent more time with you guys this year than i did most people i know. you all rule in ways unbeknownst to most, which is a good thing cause if everyone knew i wouldn't get to hang out at all. thanks for being good friends when i needed it, providing me with hours of laugh and smiles. you rule a ton.
jimmy, bert, sweetheart boys, game night peeps, and the bad movie night crew: thanks a lot for being incentives for me to get out of the house once in a while, good people to know will be somewhere when you are going out to catch some friends, and awesome road trip buddies. much respek.
james: dude. what the shit? you're more than just my musical dopelganger, you're a good friend and the only person i would let go through a dollar bin before me. i better see a lot more of you this year!
tim and zac: what can i say but you be some trick ass niggas. thanks for living with me and working with me and playing with me. eww.
missie: thanks for keeping me awake for an entire month. you may have ruined my life, but did i ever thank you for it? miss you, kid.
nicki: we drifted unfortunately more than i wanted. but, you are still one of the more important people in my life and i do still care for you in ways i could never care about others. i miss you a lot, even though we both are just too lazy to pick up phones. this will change, hear?
kevin wehrle: you've been one of my best friends ever, my roommate, and my metaphysical teacher. i owe you so much. thank you for everything ever. sperm.
mr. mark d'artangnon freado: what to say. without you this year, i think i might have lost it. besides being one of the funniest and most loyal friends i've ever had, you have been an ear to listen to me babble and person i knew i could always turn to. you are one of my closest and best friends. thanks for that. now get me an m crib!
dkline: fuck. whatever i write here you already know, but i'll say it anyways. you are my best friend. when i couldn't turn to anyone else, you were there. when i needed someone to just sit around and watch movies cause i didn't want to be alone, you blew off others and hung around. you laugh at most of my stupid shit and put up with my lame and flakey ass more than anyone should. i appreciate it more than you know. i love you on a level way different than any normal friend, you're family. so don't fucking rag on me so much, you callous asshole! (right.)
todd: thank you for being a friend. i miss you so much.
lydia: i saved you for last cause like it or not, you affected me most this past year. you and i had some of the best times i've ever had with anyone. thanks for staying up with me all night all the time, for liking me, and for being my friend even after others wouldn't take the time to do so. i'll always love you, and i know you will always have a place for me too. just don't forget about those in ohio that care about you, and maybe even me. i hope you know you can come to me with any problem about anything. i miss you a lot.
if i didn't mention you, or you feel slighted, fuck off. this is my show motherfuckers! also, no diss was meant. this is all about love, and just cause your name isn't here doesn't mean you weren't important to me, just couldn't address everyone.
so what's in store for 2006? who fucking knows. i just hope that everyone who was important in 2005 stays close, if not become closer. i love you all. have a good night and don't hit me when you see me for being so goddamned emo.
