Year in Review
As 2015 comes to a close and my birthday approaches, I find myself reminiscing over the last year; so let’s take this trip together! It will be uncomfortable and amusing for all.
January: Depressed. Mildly suicidal. Dropped out of school for the third time. February: Depressed. Cold. Not suicidal anymore. Auditioning for a lot of films. March: Not as depressed. Sometimes cold. Dress rehearsals for the summer film. April: Healthy depressed. Realized the director was as mature as a 16-year-old. Quit the film. Seeing a lot of bands play. May: Dissociative. Drunk. Childhood friend got married. Don’t really remember anything after that. June: Dissociative. Warped Tour. All my close friends officially done with college. July: Not as dissociative. Drunk. Made a lot of music. Hot. Got my hair cut the shortest it’s ever been. August: Drunk. High. Sad about my friends leaving the state again. September: Got a job at the Alibi. Busy all the time. Livin’ the dream. October: Crewing at Balloon Fiesta. Figuring out my new job. Drunk. November: Cold. Frustrated with dating. Writing. Going to comedy shows most weekdays. December: Cold as fuck. Going to comedy shows. Happy. Writing.
