In this post, I am going to reflect a bit on everything that happened to me this past year. I am going to cover things that I have and have not talked about with the Memory Mondays. The photos I include are going to be under the month that I am currently remembering. I am going to talk about all aspects of my life. This post is going to be considerably long, so hold on, and let's take this trip down this year in review!
In January, at the turn of the year, I was looking forward to many things. Turning 18, Disney Trip, Graduation, College, and a few other things. I had my last pep rally for school, and had a blast playing and winning at a 2-on-2 basketball tourney. I was dressed up as Paul McCartney from Sgt. Pepper. Did I look like an idiot. Yes. Was I happy though. Absolutely! We won the first game but lost the second one.
In February nothing really happened here either, other than my team making the playoffs, winning a Quarterfinal match against St. Dominics and then losing in a close match for my last game ever. (Very sad!) They made me so proud to be their Captain, like I have said before on this blog! I then also did the Long Island Polar Bear Club for the seventh straight year, and also went to a Florida-Georgia Line concert at Madison Square Garden, with my cousin Mack.
May brought my eighteenth birthday, and it brought my long awaited return to Disney World, down in Florida. I was over there from April 30th, to May 3rd. I spent my eighteenth birthday in Epcot in the morning and afternoon, and then Animal Kingdom at night. I rode Everest twelve straight times. I rode the Rock'n Roller Coaster eight times, and the Hollywood Tower of Terror twice. Listen it was a long story why I rode it twice. I was a fool, plain English! Then I finished my finals in Kellenberg, and then got ready to graduate. In the photo below, I am in the front, near the middle, in the green shirt, that people made fun of that I looked like Steve from Blues Clues, and I am also wearing a Chinese Straw hat, and I have a bag, and a backpack on. This was taken on my eighteenth birthday too!
Then it was July. We had me driving a golf cart around a golf course, (You don't say!), for a fireworks display. I then had my eighth straight Fourth of July Water Balloon Parade in Stewart Manor. (It's literally forty or so fire departments throwing hundreds of thousands of water balloons at the residents of this small little town, and the residents throwing them back at you. It's a war-zone literally!) Then we had a lot of fun with my summer job, as I went to more Mets games. I went to my Sisters softball nationals near the end of July, and had a blast with all of the other siblings, who all became my friends. (She had a walk-off hit, and they finished fifth in the whole thing.)
Then we moved into August. Nothing really happened differently here, other than going over to my cousins house a lot, went to see Ray Navarette's number get retired by the Long Island Ducks, and then went to more Mets games. I worked and finished my summer job here in this month. I then was reunited with my friends from college, and was ready to start my college life.
September came around and I started college. We remembered 9/11, and then I got into a fight a few days later with a guy talking trash about my sister at a softball tournament. (That is right. I stand up for my sister. That's what big brothers are for!) I then also went to two Subway Series games with my cousin Mack, and had a blast. The Mets won one, and lost one. They then clinched for the first time in nine years, and made me have heart palpitations. We then went into October.
In October we finished up Kellie's softball tournaments, and then there was the Mets. They beat the Dodgers in five, and then swept the Cubs. They choked in the World Series, but thats okay. We did excellent this year. Also my Islanders, Jets, and Knicks started up their so far successful campaigns.
In November we hit Thanksgiving, and my bowling team started up their so far very successful campaign. I had a blast in college as the year started to wind down. The Jets became something, and my Islanders and Knicks are doing just fine. There was really nothing else that happened in November. Also something really big happened to me in November. This Blog! On November 10th, I wrote my first post on here, and it has blown up all because of you guys, and I am so thankful for you all.
In December, we had me finishing my first semester of college, my sister making National Junior Honor Society, (like her older brother!), and having a wonderful and joyful Christmas. My Jets won and are probably going to the playoffs, the Islanders are in third place in the Metro, and my Knicks are right there too.
So that is my quick year in review. There are many other things that I did that didn't make the cut. I know this makes my life look boring as all balls, but trust me, I am writing this at around 6:15 in the morning, and my brain isn't working on all cylinders right now. Literally you need to be happy that I got this far!
There are a lot of photos that go along with all of these events, that I don't have saved, and can't find a way to save them, to my computer, so that is why they aren't on here, (It has nothing to do with both, the time I am writing this blog at, and the fact that I am really lazy! Nothing at all!) If you care so much as to want to see them. You can click on my Instagram account link on the sidebar of this blog, and scroll through the past year. You can like the photos if you like, it's all good with me! (If you don't do it, there's two things. Firstly, I'll never find out, and secondly, it won't bother me either way.)
Anyway thank you all so very much for reading this, if you did, and I hope you enjoyed it!
Did you enjoy this post? How was your year? Were you happy with the way that this year panned out for you? Are you optimistic about 2016?
Peace and Love,
