2010: A Year
I turned 28. My wife 26. My son turned 1.
I had to drop a whole semester. Soon I'll have made up that semester finally. I got a new hip, knee, and everything in between.
In addition to my junk, TSA will see a whole bunch of metal in me.
I was out of commission over a month, rarely leaving the living room. (hip surgery apparently does that to you.)
We got a bunch of new furniture like couches and desk and a TV.
My graphic design ability and knowledge grew exponentially. (According to me of course). My technical knowledge went from "This is a computer." to "This is a monitor. That's the computer." and beyond.
There was some oil spill on my birthday that was kind of a big deal.
It snowed in May.
I got published in Touchstones.
I'm one more year closer to finally graduating.
Leslie Nielsen died.
Some of our best friends moved away. Some others came to visit.
I didn't see my family (the Texas ones) nearly enough, but I did get to see them.
I managed to keep my job over a year. Usually I'd have been fired or quit by now, but I love it.
I lost weight. I gained weight. I lost hair. I didn't get any back.
Our tv broke.
I didn't read as much as I'd have wanted or written as much as I'd like, but I drew an Olympian amount. (There's no Olympian God of Art. Techne maybe, but that's more of a personification of a concept than a god.)
In other news, Morgan claimed the title of cutest baby ever. (He was in the top 5 since he was born, but this year he won it.)
I was going to have a picture of a "ripped calendar" but after googling that I think I have to wash my eyes.
Other than the few ouchies and surgeries, it's been a good year, hope yours has been too, and hope 2011 just blows 2010 out of the water.
