Obligatory (and possibly the only thing on this journal) End of Year thing

01. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?
Released a solo album. Formed my own band. Got called to play a show (instead of calling to get a show). Completed two full time semesters of college. Failed a class.

02. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I did. I took me a couple of months, but I got a better job. I don't know that I'll make one this year. My record is too good to ruin.

Not this year.

Nobody close, but someone I did consider somewhat of a mentor.

Florida isn't another country, right?

06. What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?
I'm actually pretty content with everything. Maybe more sleep.

Probably my birthday this year, December 23rd. First surprise party that's ever been thrown for me. Pretty damn cool.

38. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
You've got your eyes
And their bound to the end of the road
You sometimes feel
Like your ass is about to get mowed
But you can never let them take you down
Keep it up, keep it up
The sounds will keep coming just to mess with your head
It's a long long journey, a battle some say
You've got to keep the mojo going
