2010 Favorites

2010 is almost over! Which means it's time for my favorite blog entry (even if no one else cares).

It's time to review my favorites things of 2010! This year was pretty great when it came to my entertainment options, so some of these choices were hard! But I made decisions. So here we go.

Please note: my favorites are based on when I experienced them, not the year of their release. I may have a favorite CD in 2010 that came out in the 1970s, but the year I discovered it is the year that matters to me!

New Year's Fleeve

New Year's Eve is consistently the worst holiday of the year for me. Even though I'm a pretty upbeat guy with tons of online friends, I somehow always end up spending New Year's Eve alone. Here's a rundown of how my past few NYEs went.

New Year's Eve 2005

I think 2005 started the trend of bad New Year's Eves. According to my LiveJournal (lol), 2005 was "the worst year of my life." And New Year's Eve didn't make the year any better. I sat at home watching the ball drop on the living room TV while my brother and his friend Alex played video games upstairs. I technically wasn't alone but I was sad and lonely and reflecting on how stupid I was in 2005 (and really, I was pretty stupid in 2005).

New Year's Eve 2006

After being in a relationship since January 2006, I broke up with my significant other in December of 2006. Therefore, I was freshly broken up and of course SAD ALL THE TIME. Of course this sadness was magnified on New Year's Eve, which I spent alone. Not sure why I didn't hang out with friends, but according to my LiveJournal I was home alone, I finished reading Catcher in the Rye (which I think is overrated), and I thought I wasn't going to get in to TCNJ.

New Year's Eve 2007

New Year's Eve '07 was pretty forgettable. I wasn't as sad as I was in '05 and '06, but I was home alone. I made plans this year to hang out with a friend (who won't be named), but they canceled last minute so I ended up home alone again.

New Year's Eve 2008

Maybe this takes the cake for the worst New Year's Eve, but only because there was so much promise! When I found out I would be in Mexico for NYE '08, I was sure this was going to be the best New Year's Eve ever! However, I went on the trip with complete strangers and since they knew that I didn't drink/party, they went out to celebrate around 11pm... and didn't even invite me. I found this out when I started looking around the hotel around 11:30pm and no one was around. So I asked at the front desk and the man said that a large group of teens just left, clearly my group. I went to my hotel room, turned on the TV, and watched The Little Mermaid in Spanish (or La pequeña sirena) as the clock struck midnight.

I knew it was midnight when I heard fireworks going off. I thought it would at least be cool to see the fireworks, right?! So I went on the balcony to my room but my view was obstructed by the building in front of the hotel. I went to the general hotel balcony and still couldn't see. Finally, I went outside so I could see down the street that led to the center of town. However, the last firework went off just as I reached the street, so I only got to see a few falling sparks...

New Year's Eve 2009

I made plans this year to hang out with a friend (who won't be named), but they canceled last minute so I ended up home alone again. Sound familiar?!

I ended up alone at my sister TJ's house while TJ was at a Mariah Carey concert (JEALOUS!). I also watched my first ever episode of Jersey Shore. BUT, there was ONE good thing about that night... I finished a puzzle I had been working on over winter break! Or maybe that's not that cool... since a certain Hotel Tuesday reader called me "grandpa" when I posted the picture on Twitter.

So what will this New Year's Eve bring?! I don't know yet. I probably won't know my plans until that day. But I mean, the night has to be an improvement over the last five New Year's Eves, right? RIGHT?!

Yesterday was my birthday. I'm 22! Here's what happened.

I didn't do much in the morning/afternoon besides from go online, watch Ugly Betty, and do some schoolwork. But at 7 I went to Chili's with my friends.

Of course I had a Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie!!! MMMMMMMMM!!!

Left side of the table - Katrina, Todd, some girl, Eric:

Right side of the table - Kevin, Dana, me, Delisa (not pictured, as she took the picture):

See that sweet shirt I'm wearing? That was my first gift of the day, given to me by my friend Yarisma. Don't I look great in it?!

I went back to campus and had cake.

It was yellow cake with strawberries adentro. ¡Me gusta mucho fresas!

I blew out the candle and made a very special wish, which obviously I can't share!

Here I am doing what I do best - arguing with someone!

Then I got more presents, like Wonderfalls on DVD from Delisa! (Best picture of me ever?)

I loooove this series and was so sad when it was canceled after only 4 episodes aired. Can't wait to watch it over winter break!

Delisa also got me this cute sweater from H&M to go with my new shirt!

And then another flannel shirt (yay!) from Dana to go with my green eyes.

This morning, I had to run to the art building and on the way back to the dorms I picked up my final birthday gift that was waiting in my car. Mi mejor amigo Josh gave it to me the other day but I didn't want to open it until my birthday. I opened it this morning to find...


And with that gift, my life is complete.

Thanks to everyone who sent birthday wishes/gifts!!! E>E>E>
