*counts years on fingers*

That would be the end of 7th grade and the start of 8th grade for me. My very first girlfriend dumped me in January (see below). Anyways, I was listening to the radio quite a bit, and my first temptation to buy a U2 CD happened when I heard "Staring at the Sun" that summer. I didn't buy it for another 2 years though. My supergoth friend at that point really liked U2, but now he constantly trashes them. Later that year I met probably my best friend ever, Ben Dennis. Sadly he moved away early in 98, but he was really cool. The only problem was that his mom was really stuck up towards my mom, racism I suppose, Ben was an African American from New York, and apparantly his mom didn't think too much of his having white friends. That's about it.


For those who care, you know how much I talk about my crappy luck with girls. Anyway, Tammy was my first girlfriend, and things are soooooo great when you're not scarred by bad relationships. She broke up with me after about 4 months, and admitted regretting it about 3 years later. At that time though, I was so scarred by being rejected and dumped and lied to that when we tried to get back together, I was so nervous that I ruined it. There's still a spark between us, and if things don't work out with Jennifer and myself(and I really don 't think they will, we're just toooooo different), I'm gonna give her a call. I need to anyway, but I can't get over the guy she's dating now (even she admits he's an arrogant, self-absorbed prick).

In 1997 I was 19 and attending classes at a community college. (Bleh. ) I was working at a grocery store in the Service Counter, doing things like ringing up prescriptions and printing out lotto tickets. I also was flirting with a lot of guys, but cause I'm an idiot and so damn shy nothing ever happened. Things were pretty lame and tame for moi.

I also missed out on seeing U2 in Detroit on Larry's birthday. I was on the phone (a group of us from work were all going to go) but stupid me....it was taking too long to get through so I hung up. *smacks head

In 1997 I had just graduated from University with my Bachelor's degree and then spent August in Denmark before spending the next four months freezing my ass off in Russia.

Other than two very traumatic events, 1997 was a very good year...

This pic was taken on the shore of the river Volga just north of Kazan'. It was unbelievably cold- I must have had a few layers on, not too metion the scarf wrapped around my head like a baba.

at this time I was 24. I was finishing up at De anza college so I could transfer to San Jose State to study art. This was also the last year I did a dance performances, or dancing of any kind. And still I had no girlfriend just a crush here, a crush there, and no guts to ask them out.

I also went to puerto vallarta with a couple of bowling buddies. Early to rise to go finishing and out late at the strip clubs for the whole week. It was a blast!

Here's the red snapper I caught...

  • I was 12 too
  • Graduated from Primary school and started a new school life in Secondary School
  • Hong Kong turned from a British Colony to a 'Special Administrative Region' of China.
  • I moved from a country side house to a city area apartment.

1997 was quite a big year for me...

I was in my last year of school and trying to decide what I was going to do with my life.
I also spent way to much time getting drunk and trying to fit in to the cool group
That was also the first year I went abroad on holiday and I passed my driving test too.

I was in my last year of college, wondering what I was going to do with my life (funny I'm still wondering )

Unfortunately I don't have a picture *note sarcasm*

The last time I allowed my picture to be taken was when I was graduating High School.

In 1997, I was in the airline industry and watching a lot of MTV.

I also didn't know what I wanted in life. Uh-oh, seems like every year is 1997 for me.
