Well, sad to say but true, 2006 is almost over with. Another chapter of our lives gone, only memories to live by. What are some of your memories of 2006? I know the major Yaoi paddling at the Winter Meetup just this weekend will always be one of mine, but who wants to share the memories for a bit of holiday cheer?

Ah, Yes, 2006. What happened?

I got drunk alot, to start with. Of course, that's coming to an end know. I've made a promise to cut down on my drinking. (Still be sipping Boshleviks at ACen, though).

I solidified my ties with the Communist Party, to the point where I'm soon to be a card carrying communist (though I hate non humanist communists).

I've worked as a Production Assistant and Assistant director. Looking for more film jobs.

I've officially dropped out of school (for the time being) to live a life of adventure (effective Wednesday).

Found the kid I made fun of in High School, tried to make ammends, and then realized the reason I made fun of him in the first place.

I got my Rabbit, El Ahrairah. And a second, Oreo, and there existance is a pain seeing that caring for two rabbits is kinda pricey.

Met several celebrities, including James Gunn, Nathan Fillion, George Romero, Jenna Fischer, Tom Savini (that dickweed), and others.

Wrote many screenplays, many of which suck.

Watched the movie "Arthur" until the VHS broke and I had to buy it again.

Made my first movie, and it kicked so much as you wouldn't believe it.

My memories of 2006 are slim, only because I was a complete loser xD-

Normal Life-
1. January, my first tattoo.
2. Well, I graduated in the top 10 of my class, which isn't much... I was like, number 8 out of 32...
3. I was finally promoted to being an official daycare helper for my mother, being paid.
4. I moved out with my elder sister and am now living in a nice apartment.
5. I got my first actual job, Applebees Hostesscupcake.
6. December, my second tattoo

Acen Experiences-
1. I randomly began talking with many people.
2. I went there on Thursday and thoroughly enjoyed sleeping in my friend's, Sera, room, even though my back and arms hurt the rest of the con.
3. I had great seats at the masquerade... it was marvelous and I was extremely happy.
4. The King bedroom shower stall looked like a "sex shower", so my Ichigo and Rukia plushies did just that. xD
5. My sister and I playing Bleach GC game in the room. And me meeting Lee, while playing(and sharing my memory disk) Bleach GC. ^^-
I tried changing my avatar and it said I needed permission? I've never had that problem before and I've been on this forum for many years, so what gives?

Well the only good thing to happen to me this year besides going to my first ACEN, was moving out on my own finally. I really can't think of anything else right now.

I wanted to go but I was sick during that time. I used to live in Metropolis and some of my family still lives there.

As for me and memories of 2006, ACEN '06 is the only thing worth remembering.
