What to say about 2010? 2010 was an interesting year. Major ups. Major downs. New friends. Old friends. Births. Deaths. And pretty much everything else. This year was definitely like a roller coaster. I started the year thinking that I was going to move to Los Angeles and live happily ever after with one of my best friends. Turns out life had other plans. Not only did that great adventure crash and burn, but I nearly lost one of my best friends from it. I DID lose one of my best friends from it for a while. Picking up and moving across the country is an insane idea, especially when you know no one over there (well... 2 people), and you have to leave your kid behind temporarily. Definitely the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Funny thing about it is that I think it tested my limits and what I can handle. I find I am much stronger than I thought.
After going through all of that I found myself living with someone who I never thought I would. My new best friend... she knows who she is. And it was amazing how close you can get to someone inside of two months. I cried when she left. Both times. (That's another story). I have no idea where I would be this year without her. She is the person that keeps me grounded, knocks me down when my head gets a little too big, and tells me when my bitch mode is getting a tad too out of hand. I do have to say I don't think that is even possible, but whatever. So I thank her for that.
Struggling for a job, soaring through AOD, new staff, new friends, old friends butting their heads into my life again... all of it was so worth it. Even with all the struggles financially, emotionally, and physically... I think 2010 has been a damn good year. I'm not sure I would change anything. No... I know I wouldn't change anything. This year was definitely a great one, one for growing... and I laugh just thinking back on it.
So.... how to close out this email...
To all my friends: I am so thankful for all of you and I can't wait to see what madness and debauchery we can get ourselves into in 2011.
To all my enemies, haters, and Facebook stalkers: Fuck you! God that feels good.
And to my grandmother who is no longer here... miss you Gma! Love you!
and to 2011.... Bring it on!
