The year that was..

As I am sitting here, finally catching up on youtube video's with 11 mintues left in 2008, I thought I'd reflect on the year that was.

Overall, I thought it was quite the year, although I have done nothing to show for it. I remember starting off 2008 the way I will start off 2009, by being pissed off that the Oilers lost a game they should have one, against our arch rival flames.

As per usual the beginning of the year is a blur, but there was one thing on my mind for the majority of the first half of 2008 and that was super smash brothers brawl. I had just planned a brawl party with all my friends just around the time when it was delayed the second time to the first week of march from the second week in feburary, right when my reading week was. Everyday that passed in the first half of 2008 was waiting for brawl. I don't know if that ended up being a good thing or not because now I have not played the game since i played against Zach about 2 months ago. I also remember at the beginning of the year I got my keys to the building(the movie theatre) right before having worked there for a year.

Then by the time the end of April rolled around, I discovered what has I think changed my life for now. I hope this is not just another "obsession" of mine because I tend to get obsessed about "online" environments (see playing gunbound for almost 2 years, with almost a full year dedicated to reaching one of the top levels in the game that is usually reached with cheating). Among discovering youtube, I discovered skype and blogtv, not thinking much of either at the time. Skype I did not think I would ever use and I have yet to do a live show on blogtv, nor do I ever plan on it. Then by the end of may, I uploaded my first actual video. I have done 8 videos over the coarse of 7 months but I hope my uncreative mind can come up with more creative things over the next year. I think I've been in more collaborations than I have actually produced my own content. I am not an opposition of that but I guess these things happen.

With now 1 mintue left in this year, I want to thank all the people I have met over the last 7 months in no particular order Bridget, Jeremy, Shannon, Quintein, Adam, Matt, Zach, Cade, Colson, Leah, Daniel, Michael, my communist Vivien, Kimmy, Mallory, Rosy, Chago, Garnet, and many many more that I currently watch but have not had a chance to watch.

I want to make it so that I actually meet most of you in 2009, hopefully in June. I will not stop until I am on a plane going to Portland for June 27/28/29, whenever it is. This makes me want the next 4 months of school to go by faster than any other time in my life. I would love to stay in Oregon as long as possible, being never being out of this province for more than a week as it is. I don't think my parents will be ok with the idea of me meeting people I've only spoken with on the internet, but I'm 21 now and I think its damn time for me to be doing things the way I want to.

Enough with this crap and lets get on with the day. Wooo school in 5 days (puke)
