everything happened so fast and it made this year just fly by.
2008 started out with me being retarded and not really doing much for the entire month of January. Maggie and i's birthday party was awesome and that was the highlight of my January and took the stress of health related issues off my mind for a second. February was a blur but from what i remember i had spent about three to four days a week at the baby store and tried an assortment of depression and anxiety medications which all just made me feel worse-not to mention the other cocktail of meds i was on for other things. i had a lot of support from my girlfriends and they are the best for listening to me complain and try and make sense of something that just didn't.
i was let down in the beginning of 2008 by someone close to me and I did something that i had even disappointed myself in doing-which a lot of people hate me for but they don’t even know the half of it and never will. Everyone has opinions about other people and the decisions that they make even if they’re too ignorant to find out what really happened and even consider the reasons WHY things happen. But I don’t need to go into that now, let alone provide an explanation for my actions to anyone but of two people.
I fell in love three times this year and I’m thankful for every person who showed me love and who let me show it back.
SO-February I ended it with one and I met someone new who showed me my heart could only grow bigger. March was full of crème brulee. Went to a wedding with Lawl and hung out with her family in Virginia. Went to D.C. for the first time and had a fun time and an unforgettable experience. Had another trip to Baltimore which was so much fun and introduced me to seafood that I have always been so reluctant to try. I had an awesome Memorial Day that I spent at LBI which is my fav beach of all time. And I had my first Pirate Weekend experience of Maryland which was nothing less than awesome- you dress up as pirates and do pirate things all weekend- and do nothing but pirate activities, who WOULDN’T want that! And June=WALLE.
I guess April, may, June, and July, seem to run together to me because I was running around so much. I spent a lot of time in parks, eating chicken parm, dancing, enjoying being out of school, working at a new job, and learning how much I really do hate the northeast.
July I got a bff tattoo with Laurel of paper planes right before she moved away
:( but :) at the same time because I’m going to see her soon!
August the rollercoaster of emotions was put to an end and I went down to Georgia to visit laurel<3 and stopped to pick up my hedgehog SPLASHBOX along the way. What an awesome tripJ that alone is a blog itself. August I also went to Coney Island but everything was closed-and I know it’s a deathcab song but everything was really closed-and not a strip club in sight. September school started back up and I fell in love with my painting teacher blavat and printmaking all over again but struggled with art history, again. I’ve lost touch with a lot of friends this year but I don’t think that some of them realize how busy I have been. It’s hard when someone has nothing but school work and to be honest I worked all summer. Five days a week from the end of June to the beginning of August. This semester I just had to cut going out because I had to concentrate on school work and focus less on what I’m doing Friday and Saturday night, which I am usually working from 3-11pm anyway. It’s hard to try and manage everything without at least one person being disappointed in you that you’re not around but for once in my life I prioritized. Then goes October…I finally-FINALLY-paid off my credit card debt. Thank the Lord. It took forever for me to pay it off and I do not even know how I managed to do so considering it has been weighing above my head for about three or four years now. October was last September’s mirror image all over again with health related issues and I was a slice of cheese for Halloween. November I went to see alkaline trio play in Chicago but got bummed when they only played a 20minute set. Also got bummed when I saw Matt Skiba come out in white hipster jeans with black hipster suspenders attached, with a white hipster t-shirt, and a black chad hat. Hahahah Microsoft word told me that I should revise that because it was a fragment but I refuse. (plus its more of a ramble.) But Chicago was fun and expensive but worth it. It was my first time there. Then, I worked on Thanksgiving and had two styles of Thanksgiving dinner, one from my nan and one from the somm’s, brought to me which made my night.
And so that leaves me to December.
