Proclamations and Projections

Honestly, I think I did more in '06 than I could ever have dreamed at the end of '05. Lets see if I can recall any of it:
One year of gainful employment... at the same job. TWICE! I even got a promotion. Woot!
Picked up the Bass Guitar. (Lee, Fennig, & Spice, you guys rock!)
Beat everyone at Smash Bros. (Technical win, but a win none the less!)
Ignored hurricane force winds while enjoying Superman at the Imax in Whiteplains, NY.
Survived another 6 weeks stay at SummerTech, didn't loose as much weight, but I did loose much more "flab" and a few pant sizes. I got it all back over the holidays, however.
Cut my hippy hair. However, it too is back.
Best Machinima Film Festival, ever!
Saved money little by little from January till August in order to spend a week in Tokyo. Proclaimed my adoration for a certain someone, and followed up with plans to spend 2/14/07 alone, like usual. My resolve has not wavered.
Signed up for my first line of credit, and quickly squandered it on a big ass HDTV. 18mo @ 0% baby!
Managed to keep a car 1 full year, with only minor injuries.
Made Machinima! More Machinima than I honestly care to recall. I had my hand in over a dozen student films, and wrote a great deal of scripts for DoQ.
Took photography a little more serious, even spending hours color correcting and experimenting. Kicked my self for not bringing a reliable SD card to Tokyo, and allowed most of my pics to die.
Camped in line opening morning for a game console; ironically, this was taking a break from camping. (Wii)
Purchased TWO game consoles. (Wii/360) Not sure where the money all came from, but I don't have any games for either one. (Gears of War and Zelda)
Christmas went smoothly with zero issues. I mean, WTF!?
I know I did a lot more, I didn't even get into how busy I was at work, moving and installing technology into a new building. I also didn't go into how we managed to sign (practically) the most killer band to score our next Machinima, but I digress.
Well, so long 2006! Awesome as you were, you've got to go. See ya!
Coming up in '07? A TV special on PBS, Machinima Film of the Year, personal indie 3D game project, Burning Man + road trip, and no SummerTech?! Well, we shall see. We shall see!
