NYE has never been a big holiday for me, and this year is no different. Probably because my friends and I don’t really drink. But, despite being a drag for many people, 2011 was pretty decent for me.
Albert grew from this:
I started the year at Disney World, went to Chicago in July, NYC in September, and San Francisco in October:
Disney also marked the point when Marc sent the infamous “there are so many things I want to say to you” text which kick started our quick 3 month decline from him being one of my best friends to be someone I never want to talk to again, but I’m over that.
I was unemployed for 3 months (not long at all in comparison to many others), and even though I dislike my work schedule, it could be a lot worse, and I least I don’t hate my job and dread going to work every morning. I make good money and it’s a good interim position for the space between undergrad and grad.
Exactly one month after my start date I moved out of my parents house and into my very own apartment for the first time (let me tell you, life without roommates is heaven):
At work I made two new best guy friends- one’s engaged and the other is not my type (and I’m not his), so it’s all good. And I reconnected with my old roommate from Stony Brook who I’d had a falling out with a few years ago.
2011 had a lot of changes; 2012, by contrast, should be fairly quiet. Brian’s getting married in October, I’m going to Japan in November, but other than that there’s not a lot planned (aside from the world ending, but that’s all the way in December). Then again, you never know what could happen…..
Happy New Year!
