Title: Welcome to You're (You Are) "Doom" (the New Year's Thread)
Post by: anais.jude on December 31, 2011, 10:12:27 AM
Seriously, no one is going to mention that it's New Year's Eve on the verge of 2012? Not only was 2011 quite the year on this here forum, but I am sure that most of us have lives outside this forum that don't involve me. So this is the thread to talk about all that and speculate on next year.

So, yea...I totally went to Mexico this past year. That was friggin awesome

I had a pretty rough year. Work was kind enough to give me a couple bona fide panic attacks, and things were just generally dreadful. I'm making some changes that I hope will enable me to get a better handle on things. Life has been pushing me around and I lack sufficient coping skills to fight back sometimes. Hopefully, I'm gonna turn this shit back in my favor in the coming year.

Happy New Year, everybody.

Preping for New Years here in Iguala, Mexico..
Just came back from the central market with so much shit we had to get a taxi to haul it all back to the house :o

I plan on doing my best to get to Cancun in December 2012 to be at either Tulum or Chichen Itza pyramid to have a front row seat for the end of the world, then travel on to Iguala afterwards 8)

Yep 2012, the Year of Cognitive Dissonance, there have been countless other instances of course but this one has ha such a long lead time. It's like 2000 all over again minus the techno fear, so I suppose 2000 still has the edge.

This was the first site I was on in 2012. That's kind of interesting.

The only thing I dislike about 2012 (so far) is that it's a leap year. Which means February 29 will roll around, and you hear assholes who were born on that date claiming to be 1/4 their actual age!

That stopped being clever... I'm not sure when we started having leap day, but it stopped being clever about ten minutes after THAT.

Also, call me a horrible human being for this if you MUST, but I find post-stroke Dick Clark very off-putting and depressing.

Of course, I find Ryan Seacrest equally off-putting and depressing. Come out, man. It's 2012 for God's sake, we'll be behind you on this 100%. I will defend you with a passion against any ass-backwards hick who would give you a hard time for this!

Oh GOD YES! My God people, stop propping up this poor bastard in front of the camera every year!

Reminds me of the Simpsons quote from Grandpa:

Does my withered face remind you of the grim specter of Death?

Here's a sign I've had too much wine: I have to close one eye just to make sure that I only see ONE monitor and can type messages more easily.

My feelings about 2011: Meh, s'alright.

My feelings about 2012: Meh, could be good.

Oh man... I haven't been that drunk in a LONG time. But for how plowed I got, I don't feel too bad this morning. I have a slight headache, but my stomach feels fine and I can stand up and walk without wanting to die. If THIS is the infamous wine hangover I've heard so much about, then I have to say this don't got SHIT on a fifth of cheap vodka mixed with Ruby Red Squirt hangover.

2011 started great.  I was living in a nice apartment with my fiancee, and by February we were married.  Spring and Summer became harsh though, as there were struggles for work and money, we had to move to a cheaper and much crappier apartment and we got screwed over several times, and by the end of our six month lease we were often living on pay day advances.  Eventually we made the hard decision to move to Texas instead of Ohio, which was the original plan, because we figured we could find work easier and save up money better.  The end of the year we've spent with my wife's sister Cassie, and Cassie's husband, taking over their spare bedroom and helping with the rent.  After a hard couple months of first no work then a job with practically no hours I landed a decent warehouse gig that should in the long run save our financial asses.  The end of 2011 was finally getting back to being as happy as the beginning, so I figure that's a great way to start 2012.

spent the night in times square to see the ball drop. waited 8 hours but it was worth it, met a lot of interesting people all the way from ireland, china, and even germany.  and at midnight i found a very random, very pretty girl and we kissed. then after, me and my dad found a Five Guy's that was still open and grabbed some great food. it was a great way to start the new year.
