At any rate, I just wanted to post because the year is nearly done and I just want to talk a little bit about what I've done this year.
The good . . . I'm very glad I decided to go to my high school reunion last month. By my own admission, I was not one of the "cool kids", but going anyway was fun. Of course several people were drinking shots in unison, but that's not me. Did talk with some people.
Of course, I also liked going down to South Carolina for my cousin's wedding. Nice spending a few days there at the beach, seeing family I rarely ever see. The ceremony and reception were both great; though there was no garter/bouquet toss.
Saw some good shows this year (Ozzy Osbourne, Bob Saget, M3 Rock Festival, DC 101 Chili Cook-off), enjoyed talking with my online friends, etc. Also finally got serious about working out (though I had been working out the last couple of years, I needed a fresh tune-up).
Bad news . . . tried with much effort, but no luck on the job front. 2011 will be better in that regard.
Also . . continuing to move forward down the road of life/discovering more about myself (which I can't reveal here).
And I've also gotten to like this song by Katy Perry . . . Firework.
I like how the lyrics are inspirational, telling you to just be yourself. And the last few years, I've come to realize: so I'm not what people would consider a stud/hunk/prized catch, I may not be athletic/artistic/charming, I'm shy (but getting better) . . HOWEVER . . I am unique in this world, I am the pride of my parents Richard & Renee Maier, I take pride in knowing that people view me as a kind-hearted/generous/nice guy. I try to be funny and witty, even though at times my humor may not make sense. Even if it takes me a lifetime of looking . . I will find what I want.
Wow, I've realized this will be only the 7th LJ entry I've made this entire year!
