Things that have totally rocked seven ways to Sunday

Team Awesome wishing you a happy New Year!

Looking back on the year, I've had some really stupid injuries
1. The Backsaw Incident, April
2. Toe Gash 2011, July
3. The December Neck Pull, Mid December
4. Back Out For Art, Late December

I had a good run of not hurting myself Summer/Autumn

Things out of my control that hurt really bad but aren't injuries
1. Losing JuneBug
2. Failing vision
3. Migraines

Not bad considering. Losing JuneBug was a major event though, I could have stopped my list at that one item for the heart break was too much to bear at times.

Things that have been hard but worth it
1. Quit smoking
2. School (I'm a Junior now wee)
3. Abject Poverty (I wouldn't have quit smoking if I weren't so broke)
4. Finishing my INW board term while living in PDX

  1. Q,
    #16 is the first that you have mentioned this. After your post I had to buy and read the book. What was your reaction to her in real life?

  2. She and Tony are very good friends so I have met her a couple of times in passing, I haven't had a chance to sit down over drinks or anything, but that's entirely possible sometime in the future.
