1997.......let' see, I was 16, first year of high school

I just had broke up with my girlfriend, we lasted like 1 year.

In March I went to the Kiss Reunion Concert in Mexico City, one of the best nights in my life.

Went to Reno, Nevada all Summer, then right before school started went to Cancun with 12 of my friends, I've never had so much fun in my life, but I don't think I'll ever do so many stupid and fun things in my life like we did that week. Can't believe all our parents gave us permission!!

And finally got back with my girlfriend, just to lose her next year for good (she went to France for a year, and returned with a French boyfriend) God I loved that girl

Anyway all in all a very good year, learned a lot of things

I was 20 and majoring in Communication in college.

I was working for a rock band.

I saw U2 for the first time live in Jacksonville; 5th row Edge's side.
I missed most of the concert because I was bent over crying harder and longer than I ever had the second I saw Bono in person.

I was, on a regular basis, doing 8 lemon drop vodka shots a night on the weekends.

I was 20, sophomore/junior in college, got REALLY sick [life-threatening and independent of drinking beer], went to my first U2 show [Columbus, Ohio!], my Detroit Red Wings won their first Stanley Cup in 40 years, drank lots of beer, ate lots of french fries, went to the great college party called Hooch Fest, pissed off the entire football team which caused my student newspaper to be banned from interviewing the team, drank more beer.

Sicy-- ya know, I never learned how to drink, smoke and play dominos at the same time. Hell, I have no idea how to play dominos in general. Can you teach all of us your talent?

I was 10 years old, and that would be, what.. 5th grade? I'll be in 10th in the fall. I think I was going around saying something like "yay, I'll finally be a 2-digit number" when I turned 10.
