Let's get started. Okay, year 2000, that one is easy. I graduated from high school. Of course, much to my dismay, when voting for class song, I will Remember you got picked over Anthem for the Year 2000. I was a bit outraged. I mean, come on! We were graduating in the year 2000, it should have been a no brainer.
2001, let's see, oh yes, I GOT TO SEE GREEN DAY LIVE! OMG, I was in heaven. Lost my shoes in the mosh pit. Fortunately, I found them at the end of the concert. Then everyone was kicked out before I could call my ride to get me. I ended up taking a ride from a complete stranger who had also been at the concert. I gave him ten dollars for gas, and we had a nice conversation on the drive back to my dorm. Always kinda thought I was lucky. I mean, that dude so could have kidnapped and killed me. I also could have not found my shoes and had my coat stolen. Oh, and I'm pretty sure I saw my shoe go flying in the mosh pit and hit Billy Joe in the face. Not 100% sure, but the shoe looked quite familiar.
2002, I ended up quitting college, but I don't suppose that's something I should be proud of. What can I say? I didn't see where an art degree would take me. The only suggestion I got was teaching, and that wasn't going to happen.
2003, I believe this was the year hubby and I started dating. He lived in Mississippi and I lived in Michigan. Lost distant relationships suck, but when you finally get together, it's worth it.
2005, Star Wars 3: Revenge of the Sith. I knew when this came out, George Lucas really needed to pull out all the stops with how annoyed people were with Episodes 1 and 2. I think he did a pretty good job. That end fight, OMG, I was on the edge of my seat.
2006, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. I'm really not into playing video games anymore, I usually watch my hubby play. No, I didn't play this one, but I watched hubby play it and there were times I thought about starting to play it. It was amazing. I can not wait for Skyward Sword after seeing that game. And let's just face it, Link is hawt.
2007, Nothing is coming to mind. Was I alive this year? Part of the human race? Maybe I was hiding out in a cave. Let's just skip this year, shall we?
2008, Not exactly sure, but I think this was about the time I started writing. Just for fun, I wrote down an idea I toyed with when trying to get to sleep at night. I really enjoyed writing it down, and afterwards, I got another story idea and started writing that down too.
2009, I got serious about writing, deciding the story I was working on, Being Human was one I wanted to share with the world.
So, there you have it, my list of awesome events that happened in the Noughties... minus year 2007. Let's just add 2010 since I know I have an awesome event for that year. Can you guess what it is? If you're thinking I GOT TO SEE GREEN DAY LIVE AGAIN, then you are correct. This time was even better than the first time. I screamed, I sang, I jumped, I almost cried. It was amazing. If I get the chance, I will see Green Day live a third time. They are that good. (Do not deny it, CJ.)
