Good jib!

I know I'll miss the days where I studied in my room at night and just shouted down to my dear 'ol ma "MUUUM, WHATS FOR SUPS"

Way to go, fatty.  Just kidding.  Weight's easy enough to lose.  Finger.  Throat.  Toilet.  No problem.

Internet shopping is cursed

Debatable.

I'm coming over.  Feed me.

Let's kick some ass, Slavic brother.  Every man for themselves come Euro Cup though.

My year was much the same and will be this year.  I guess it's all about those "magic" moments between.

2011 was a pretty busy year for me. At least I got a raise to show for the effort. So that's pretty swell.
Still have all my 2011 vacations left. Really gotta use those. When does D3 come out again? =D
Somehow, I feel I need to get my act together though. Ain't getting any younger =/

2011 was great, for the most part.

Got married to the girl of my dreams
First full year in a new position at work and finding I not only love it, but I seem to be pretty good at it :P
Kicked my WoW addiction and resparked my love of console gaming (got a PS3 for a New Year's present yesterday too!)

Honestly, the few bad things that happened this year I'm okay with; it helped me become who I am right now!

2011 is a year I'm quite happy to see put to an end, although it's had its good points. Ditched my guitar for a pen, and kickstarted my writing career. Wrote and sold several short stories, and finished the first draft of my novel a few weeks ago. Got a promotion and a raise at my regular job, and got into a metric fuckton of new, awesome music.

Gotta take the bad with the good, though, and last week, I was told in no uncertain terms that I need to make a few necessary changes in my lifestyle before I end up doing irreparable damage to my health. So I'm working on that as well.

Onward and upward.

That's awesome, Todd. I'm happy for you, man.
2011 was just OK for me. Mostly due to there being no real movement in my chronic pain treatment. Just new pills to try. I just love being in a drug haze all day and night.
My father was killed in a car accident in August. I'll spare you the details, but it was quite a shock to all of us. On the "finding good in the bad" side of things, it has brought my brothers and I closer together. Of course, we have yet to truly deal with all the property and money matters. I hope it all goes smoothly.

outside of the above, things weren't too bad.
I finally got my garden in a garden walk and was able to share my passion with hundreds of like-minded people. It was exhilarating and inspiring, and made me feel like a rock star. Everyone should feel that good for a day! It was a lot of work, but totally worth it.
My marriage is just as good as ever. I love my wife to bits, and she continues to be amazing in her own pursuits. She ran her first marathon in Oct.(Chicago), and I was so proud of her. Tears, people. Tears.
My son will be 11 in Feb., and is truly a great kid. damn intelligent, and constantly looking for outlets for his creativity. He makes me proud and happy to be a dad on a daily basis, and I tell him so. Advice for all dads, or future dads-to-be: Tell your children how you feel. If your proud, tell them. If your angry, tell them why, and work out the issue. Do NOT hold it all in. My father was this way, and it led to years of misunderstanding and unwarranted hate.
Anyway...I really don't know what to expect with 2012. Hopefully, my health will stabilize somewhat so I can pursue my passions without interruption. Hopefully, my wife can continue her quest for world workout domination. Hopefully, my son continues rocking the good grades, and making his mom and dad look like they actually know what they are doing.
To be honest, though, hope has nothing to do with it. You make it happen, or you don't. Simple as that.

Damn you put shit so eloquently.

The advice for dads I have to say is something I'm going to take very seriously. I have too many friends that don't have a relationship with their father, my wife included, and it just KILLS me to hear that. I didnt get along with my dad growing up, but now that I'm an adult, married, looking at buying my first house AND starting to have the conversations about children, my dad is going to be my go to guy.

Thinking about all this really makes 2012 feel exciting.

2011 was 9 months of shitty terribleness followed by the best 3 month evar!!!!

Quit Radioshack (this alone fucking skyrocketed my love of 2011)
Got a new job as an audio video installer.
Met Harvey Keitel (which is related to number 2)
Didn't get the flu this year.
Played FFXIII and didn't find it to be the absolute worst game ever.
Didn't have to fix my ps3 (this one is mucho importante)

Overall pretty good year. Would live it again.

I graduated medical school and relieved myself of a filthy parasite in 2011.

I left my home of seven years and said goodbye to my beloved dog.

I was able to come to New York and meet some awesome people I've known for years.

More awesome than awful, all things considering.

The irony of Grim's post is in his name.  Beautiful post, loved reading it!

I'd give a tow to meet Keitel and annoy him by quoting Reservoir/Pulp.  *sigh*

This year I got a part time job with people I actually enjoy working with.  Went from all girls to all guys (I get along better with the latter).  Otherwise, I'm sure you heard me brag, I finally decided to move my ass to Europe when I'm done school.  Don't know where, don't know how, but I have something in my life to look forward to, settling-down-wise.  Love to see it through.  :D

I also learned something: how to spend money better because I bought some shit things in 2011.
Part of it being you NEED to wear a collared shirt to EB/Gamestop and I had maybe 1 suitable the place.  So I bought, like, 5 of them.  Fucking plaid was so in this year it was abused:  I bought a shirt with pink, orange, dark green and yellow -- it's fucking hideous and I don't know what I was thinking.  I'll just say I was stoned.


....Leyv got a parasite?


Otherwise, I wouldnt relive it a Agent D. (above) put it, no point -- I wanna move forward and too much school in this year for me to wanna do it again :P

2011 has been weird for me.

THE GOOD:
- My relationship with my girlfriend is better than ever, I think I love her more each day, and she's been a lot happier since she quit her job with psyco boss.
- My band makes me so happy. We're really making some great music and people love to dance to us.

THE BAD:
- My relationship with my job is kinda opposite of my relationship with my gf, I'm just worn out, bored, and depressed at work. The company's getting sold and everyone's worried about their job. Making commercials is fun, but I just can't get into it anymore. Everyone here is coasting and nihilistic. And my willpower sucks, I just procrastinate all the time, like right now.
- I'm not really saving up any money. I'm not in debt, and I have some savings, but it's not growing. But my car get's older every year, and at some point, the last of my savings is probably going to go into a new car and payments, and not getting out of this dumb job. I don't even know what I want to do for a living any more.

So yeah, I'm drawing massive amounts of pleasure from my personal life and music life, but I'm becoming like every other american who hates their job, and does as little as they can. That makes me sad.
