Year's End

I'm gonna keep this short.
Some of the links to older posts may not have their respective photos, as I was hotlinking from facebook half the time. I'm not going to go through and re-add the pictures, but some of them are below.

January: Started the year off with a good case of Murder, or so assumed.

February: I spent from Xmess to a week before the big day preparing for Voltaire's Wicked NecroComiCon, my first boothing experience, and it was amazing! Beforehand, though, the worst thing happened. No link, just admittance... Ross dumped me. And it's been terrible. I became very introverted this year.

March: I found out a movie that was imagined by one of my all-time favourite singers was making its North American debut at the NY Int'l Children's Film Fest, so I made a plan, and when I hammered out all the kinks, I followed through, and had an amazing surprise!

April: I ended my short-lived but fun podcast, Animatic Attack, with my friends Nick and Justique. At the end of the month, by pure fucking chance, I got to meet the Dream King (Neil Gaiman, guys, come on).

May: Bid farewell to the darkest mind in the universe, HR Giger.

June: My friend Ron took me to see Steve Martin, The Leader of the Plaque, in the middle of a week of hanging out at the Jazz Fest. I pointed at his amazing fiddler, and said "That'll be me after my first violin lesson."

July: Not much.

August: August is always packed, and adventurous in one way or another. This year, I spent a weekend in Cambridge with Pax, and we went to Boston Comic Con, where I met Ben Templesmith <3. Walking around two great cities all weekend prompted me to finally join the Nerd Fitness Academy. And because I was on a roll, I also decided it's about time I lost my StarWarGinity

September: Continuing my health kick, I decided that for two weeks, I'd try Soylent, and I loved it.

October: Instead of worrying about Halloween, I spent the whole month planning a big-ass cake and other preparations for the big, huge Rochester Rocky Horror Reunion Show. When I wasn't doing that, I was doing Inktober and Only-Horror October.

November: I met Laurie Halse Anderson, attempted to participate in NaNoWriMo, and saw Too Many Cooks.

December: Four holiday parties, WAY too much food (and even more junk food), and realized I am finally starting to heal from the loss of Ross as a friend.  Oh, and for update purposes, I only completed about half my 40-item resolution list for 2014.  Gonna step up my game this year (resolutions here).
