2010. Put it in the books.
2010, you will be missed. The most memorable parts of my year, in the order of when they happened, not in order of favoritism:
-Started with an amazing winter trip in which I did not get any better at skiing but still had at incredible time.
-Saw James Marsters (Spike from Buffy) sing in a room no bigger than an average college classroom.
-Met entire SNL cast on several different occasions, most importantly, hanging out with Bill Hader<3
-Met Jimmy Fallon.
-Adv. Drama, Adv. Creative Writing, and Video 2: my definition of senior year.
-Prom. Fun times.
-Opened up to the brilliantly twisted world of Dexter Morgan.
-Saw Bon Jovi, yet again. Twice maybe? I go to too many concerts…
-Had another summer of getting paid to run around with kids. Camp 2010, FTW.
-Supernatural season 5 finale…yeah, it was good enough to get it’s own interval of greatness on this list.
-Saw Green Day in concert a fourth time. (With AFI.) One of the best concerts of my life.
-Had some amazing adventures with some amazing people. Senior trip, scavenger hunts, BLBF weekend, 7/11 runs, New Hope, 30 Hour Famine, LOVE park, etc…
-Went to an 80’s themed prom in the city. Truly felt like I took my DeLorean to the past. Epic.
-Saw American Idiot on Broadway 4 times, met the cast, and got a hug/kiss/signature from Billie Joe Armstrong at one of the talkbacks<333
-Saw Say Anything, Motion City Soundtrack & Saves The Day where I held hands with one of my biggest idols, Max Bemis.
-Saw favorite comedian: Mike Birbiglia. With Nick Kroll, who was also hilarious.
-Got an awesome writing internship which has recently opened me up to a world of opportunity.
-Went to the dress rehearsal of SNL where I was 15 ft from Paul McCartney and Paul Rudd. Incredible. All of it. The sleeping outside SNL, being in the studio, just…every second of it.
-Everything I could’ve wanted and more for Christmas including my plane ticket for Peurto Rico for Feb., a new flat screen, bluray dvd player, dvds, and sinfully comfy pj pants.
-Tweeted by John Cusack and Rider Strong<3 It’s the little things…
-Ending the year with a party in NY with a gigantic chunk of my awesome family. Great way to end/kick off the year.
I’m pretty sure this year just tops 2009, but I have NO idea how I’m gonna top 2010 with 2011. I’m very stoked for the challenge though.
Biggest goals of the year: make a huge dent in my book and/or screenplay-if not finish one, turn my writing internship into a full time job, transfer to the school I wanna go to, hang on the set of Supernatural in Vancouver with the cast, road trip to Texas, see John Mayer live, watch the entire series of LOST, and skydive at least once. It’s gonna be a good year. I can feel it.
