    Well, either the world is going to end tomorrow, or the news year is about roll in. Either way, lets roll in said new year with:

    "What are your top five best moments in 2012?"​



    5) Quitting Mcdonalds.

    Working there? Was a bit of a nightmare, as is all fast food joints. But, finally quitting there after six-months of under-wages, pseudo-managerial spots, and having to walk about four and a half miles to get there? I'm glad it is finally over.

    4) Moving out of my Mom's/Out of "The Orphanage".

    Moving out of my Mom's house? Pretty rad. I'm twenty... That being said, moving out of "The Orphanage" was even better. There is nothing worse then about... eight adults sharing a three bedroom apartment together. (Though the rent was cheap... lol)

    3) Getting a super dooper awesome job.

    Can't say what the job is, cause' y'know. Privacy. But, I gotta say I love my job right now.

    2) Moving in with my girlfriend.

    Pretty self explanatory. Girlfriend, love each other. Move-in. Derp.

    1) Getting my first car.

    Life in Vegas sucks. Life in Vegas without transportation? Even worse. Everything is a goofy-far amounts away, that being said finally getting my first car? The best thing this year tops. I fucking love my PT Cruiser. <3
    _________________________________________________________


    So, that being said. What are your top moments for 2012?

    5) Starting my own blog. It's kind of silly, but I enjoy writing and expanding my photography skills. It gives me a sense of small accomplishment.

    4) Securing a terrific job right out of graduation. I am very fortunate to have secured such a good job so fast.

    3) Holding my sister's son, her first child.

    2) Graduating from Arizona State University with a Bachelors in Marketing

    1) Getting married to my lovely bride. Surreal. I'll never forget a single moment from that day.

    1) Completing my Drama Exam. It was a long, painful effort full of blood, sweat and tears, but the end result was utter perfection :D 

    2) Watching the Avengers. Sweet meta-things, I love that film.

    3) Watching Rise of the Guardians. Sweet meta-things, I love that film.

    4) Completing the first episode of Halo 4's Spartans Ops on Legendary. Hot damn, it was tough, but satisfying! :D 

    5) Going to my friend's birthday party. One of the most fun things I've ever done in my life! It was truly epic :D

    Re-finding my love for TFs. I think all the negativity in the fandom got to me.

    Rediscovering Pokémon. I love these games, don't know why I stopped playing them.

    Withdrawing from IU. I hated my time there. I never really wanted to go there. I kinda wanted to go to Vincennes, but my friends made jokes about the school that turned me away. I'm smart, so I felt like I had to go to a four-year school. But I've decided that I'm going to go where I want, which is VU next fall.

    Deciding what I want to study in school.

    I don't think I have a fifth.

    My brother and I were fighting terribly but he got the help he needed over the summer and we are doing great getting along better than when we were kids. this I think was most important.

    Bro & I opened a Thrift & Collectibles Mart. Getting by financial wise & having a ton of fun too. I play with and sell TF's at work. I've also sold about 40 paintings since we opened. the year before we opened I was lucky to sell 5.

    I picked up my first collector meaning this gentleman collects my art & when I paint something new he wants first shot at it (at a discounted rate of course)

    I made a friend who is truly special to me. She's since moved back home to Ca. and I regret not spending more time with her when I had the chance. I will see her come Botcon! This should be #2.

    Hanging out & being friends with artists I looked up to as a kid, and still look up to now.
