Happy Five Year Blogiversary | 11/20/08
Since it's my 5 Year Blogiversary I thought I'd give everyone an updated that didn't suck: one that was totally correct with both spelling and grammar. In order to do this, I decided to use a lot of pictures (I know that comma wasn't totally necessary). Anyway, our first picture was from when I was...5 and in kindergarden. It was letter people day, and I was, obviously, the Letter M. Note that the eye patch was not because I was a pirate but in fact because I had a lazy eye.
With FriendFest 2008 about to kick off, I figured a nice long entry filled with pictures would give me an excuse not to update (not that I need excuses). Have a great weekend and I'll hopefully see you at FriendFest 2008.
Age 4: Look at that straight hair. Ah, those were days.
Age 5ish: I am so cute! Look at my small features. Damn puberty and repeated nose-breakings.
Fifth Birthday: Living the good life and opening presents.
Age Ten: Steve and I dressed in matching Cubs outfits before a game.
Sixth grade band trip. I'm the frail-looking one in case you weren't able to figure it out.
Seventh Grade: My partner, Brian, and I won the Science Fair but lost at "State" because we didn't have some form signed or something. Enter my lifelong love of disorganization.
1994: Frightening to think that I even survived high school at all. Frightening.
1997: Girls love nerds. Remember that, nerds.
1997 (college): Sitting around and thinking how busy I was. This picture might confirm (if the rest haven't) that I am the least-photogenic person on the planet.
2000: Hooray, at least I started listening to better music. Definitely growing in my body by now.
2001 (college): At Matt and Rosemary's wedding. Highlights aside, that might be the best my hair has ever looked.
2001 (grad school): Kathy and I were very ambitious. We had a bobble-headed dog who was named Cathy.
2003: Grad school living. Kathy, Brian, Me, and Chompy sitting around doing absolutely nothing. I have to assume Mark C. took that picture since he rounded our group until he married.
2004: School's out forever. Roadtrip (and looking good).
2005: I was an emo kid for Halloween. I just realized this now but I like having no sleeves on shirts.
2005: Steel band trip to Miami. This picture has the most number of friends in it out of all my pictures.
200?: Me and Chompy, hanging out.
2006: Getting ready to go snorkeling. This picture is infamously on a deck of playing cards. I don't know where those cards are.
2006: Me and Steve along with my grandma. I look an electric bassist who can't read music.
2007: Oops, got a little out of order. Marty, Chris, Me, and Jamie watching FSU win back when they used to win.
2007: Let the record show that the cowardly reaction I have is only because I had just gotten the yellow belt. I'd man up now and take one of Christine's kicks to the face now (or I guess at least attempt to block it).
2007: FriendFest 2007 in Bloomington, Indiana.
Today: I'm looking cranky because this took way too long to make. On the bright side, I'm over wearing bandanas.
