What was the best memory of 2008?
Honestly, it was probably getting back behind the stick after a 6-month hiatus

What was the worst memory of 2008?
June 8-15

If you could go back in time & change anything, would you?
Yes, the week of June 8-15. Everything that happened. Everything.

Yes.

How was your valentine’s day?
I wish I could remember.

Drove to New York.

Did you achieve your new years resolution?
Not by a long shot. I’m still a private pilot, and I’ve been a terrible person. I have however, gotten closer to my friends.

This or That(2008):

Cheeseburgers or Tacos?
Tacos.

Skinny Jeans or Flare
Boot cut or chinos.

Vans or Flip-Flops?
Funny story about that, actually…. Ask me in a comment and I’ll tell.

Myspace or Cell phone?
I’ve actually dropped most of my MySpacing in favour of Facebook, and I need a new phone so I can keep up with people more reliably.

Dark Night or Twilight?
Haven’t seen either, but I abhor vampires and I love Batman. You figure it out.

Hancock or Iron Man?
Iron Man was a great comic book movie. Hancock was sub-par, but fun.

Winter or Summer?
This year, winter is proving to be better. Overall, I am a much better fan of summer.

Spring or Autumn?
Spring is a time of new beginning, so I generally like it better. This spring sucked, however. Autumn wasn’t much better, though.

One thought on “Survey for 2008 (Rather Depressing, Actually)”

  1. The Vans vs. Flip-Flops Story
    So, as many know, I made an impromptu trip to New York last summer. As is customary for me when the temperature is above 80 or so, I was wearing flip-flops for the journey from Cochran to Atlanta. When I decided to run away to New York for a holiday weekend, I realised that trotting around Manhattan in flip-flops was the surest way to incite some major blisters on my feet. To correct this situation, as I had not brought any extra shoes with me, I stopped at Target to pick up a cheap pair. I happened to find a pair of Mossimo kickers that looked EXACTLY like a pair of Vans I had in high school. EXACTLY. Naturally, considering the emotional train wreck I was, I purchased the ones that had a “feel-good nostalgia” to them. It was great! The shoes felt like high school, and, at least for a weekend, I was 17-18 again and loving it!
    I still wear those shoes, they’re great cooler-weather kickers as opposed to my canvas Rocketdogs.
