Akemashite omedeto gozaimasu! Happy New Year 2005, everyone! The Greatest American Heroes rocked in the new year last night, and I've started the year right by watching Mickey Mouse kick off the Rose Parade. My pal Matt wrote such a touching summary of 2004 at Moon Station Foxtrot, so I thought I'd play copy-cat and try to hit WEBmikey's highlights. Enjoy!
I kept with my strict vacation schedule by visiting Disneyland (twice), Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Hollywood, LegoLand, SeaWorld, and Las Vegas (plus two trips to Oklahoma City to see my parents). I had tons of fun and saw amazing things at all these places!
This was a big year for upgrading toys. I bought an iMac, a new PC, a new Palm, a new iPod, plus a new camera phone! All of these get a workout on a daily basis.
I did a lot of video projects this year, such as pals' events like weddings and the marathon, but also ambitious projects like 9 La Cava Tales and Terrific Televsion Commercials (if you don't know about these productions, you don't really need to know)!
I was Best Man for Chris & Eliza's wedding, an historic event that will be remembered forever (not to mention the bachelor party!).
Muscially, I kept playing with both of my bands, the Greatest American Heroes and Stella, and I got to be a part of the live music for Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors, which was creative and fun!
I made an A in Japanese II, then continued my own study (I was too busy with all that other stuff to take Japanese III, but maybe I will in the Fall!).
