Went on a bunch of family vacations to South Carolina and camping trips up north.
Visited Providence, Boston, Rochester, NY, and somewhere in New Jersey.
Road tripped to Chicago three times to see Green Day, Dragonforce, and Motion City Soundtrack.
Rode the coasters at Cedar Point 3.2 times.
Worked at Michael’s Arts & Crafts, Gap, a salon, a web design firm and an Italian Restaurant. Got fired from two, walked out of one, and was so excited to quit one when I got my degree.
Got into three car accidents.
Had three significant relationships and had my heart broken twice.
Colored my hair blue, red, blonde, black, pink, orange, brown and a bunch of combinations of those.
Went to Warped Tour nine times, saw a million concerts, and a billion local shows.
It’s interesting what I chose to write down in my journals and what is important enough to go on this list. I’m going to make a point to spend more time accomplishing stuff, so in 2020 my list is ten times as long.12.30.09 in blogging, life
