Ah, the year is almost over…. Naturally, this is the perfect time to reflect on everything that happened. It was rocky year on some fronts, but overall I think I came out ahead. Let’s see if I’m right. I’ll start by examining my Q1 activity (it’ll keep the investors happy, you see).
January — Let’s see…. This month I was getting used to not having a really special someone in my life while learning how to better deal with someone that randomly makes cameos in it. I was also incredibly sick of my job. My daughter made a major contribution to my career by dragging me to the MAC counter at Macy’s. I went on an adventure. I was supposed to go to Vietnam, but I met this cool German guy in Bangkok and immediately developed a crush on his sister (yes, I admit that now). So I went to Southeast Asia and latched onto the first white girl I ran into.
February — This was a particularly interesting month. I was incredibly sick of my job. Things started off in Vegas where I had what turned out to be a life-changing chat. It was basically an overdue follow up to a chat I had in August and eventually it lead to what I’m doing for a living today. That same trip I also let down one of the most important people in my life…and it wouldn’t be the last time this year.
The girl I wasn’t dating suddenly broke up with me. I wasn’t expecting it…it hit me really hard and stayed with me for a long time. I met a really hot Japanese MILF. In retrospect, I think that’s where my recent attraction to Japanese girls came from. I saw my ex-wife twice and haven’t seen her since. I found an excellent apartment in my favorite neighborhood. I also purchased a vacuum cleaner. It wasn’t a Dyson. That might have been the ninth-biggest mistake I made all year.
March — Things got really interesting here! I was incredibly sick of my job, but this month the final two straws broke the camel’s back. First, I had this incredibly huge story that was rinsed of its humor and personality. It was also given a third part that was just incredibly vapid. B.B and I did an interview that got us in a ton of trouble. This one exec from a huge company was being a dick and freaked out about the way we interviewed him. He threw a little bitch tantrum and allegedly banned us from campus. After the dust settled, b.b and I felt we did absolutely nothing wrong. Of course nobody from work backed me up on that. So in addition to working for a place that was dying creatively, hadn’t given me raise in over two years (but found several creative excuses), and thrice altered my work for dubious reasons, I came to the realization that our interests were incongruous. (I’m a little slow sometimes.)
Let’s see. I also had my first blackout-drunk evening of the year, which was mostly caused by a dramatic reaction I had to seeing someone for the first time since she broke up with me. It wasn’t her fault at all. I just couldn’t handle it…and woke up in my old apartment in someone else’s room. (Kat didn’t know I moved. Great story though!) Oh, I also went to a trance club with a sound designer from Konami. Watching a sound guy dance is pretty cool.
