01/01-Ringing in the new year in San Francisco atop the Fisherman's Wharf/ Pier 39 rooftop, watching the fireworks and seeing all the crowds of obnoxious drunks. Then using wayyy too many munis, busses, and trains to try to get back home. Oh yeah and it was raining.
01/21-MY 20th birthday. First show of the year, headed over to Reno, NV [ University of Reno] to be exact. And reunited with an old friend, Robie! Watched The Maine perform at his school and good hangs after. Also, milkshakes at Awful, Awful. Then after driving back to the hotel my iphone falls to the parking lot floor and smashes the front screen to a milion pieces.
01/23-Stay an extra night in The World's Biggest Little Town, and catch the Pierce The Veil [Miss May I & Silverstein] show at the Knitting club. Let me say, one of the greatest shows ever. On top of that, getting to meet Vic, Mike, & Tony.

It was also my first encounter with Whole Foods. Thanks Reno, NV for so many experiences.
Random Beach outings. Here in California [the Bay Area to be exact], you never know when you'll get nice warm weather, and yes our Medditerranean climate, gave us perfect weather in February, and so we took advantage by heading to Santa Cruz.

Made a last minute Spring Break stop in Vegas, and chilled Poolside until some bozo spilled a cocktail in the pool and endagered the kids.
Also, the boys in A Rocket To The Moon had their first ever HEADLINING tour! The On Your Side Tour, the proudness in the room could be felt by all.
Wondercon!!!!!! THrough my internship at CMC, I got to get my friends in at Wondercon, whcih I thought would be awesome like the world acclaimed San Diego's COmic Con. But it was more like a really organized swap meet. Needless to say, it was 'meh'.
