2009 in Photos

2009: A Year in Photos!

January 2009: I started shooting handguns. I still had a part-time job at Laurey's and I was going to school at AB Tech.

February 2009: I visited my sister in Miami to see her BFA dance performance. I got fired from Laurey's.

March 2009: Went lobbying in Raleigh for LGBTIQ rights for EqualityNC

April 2009: I got my second tattoo, Jenny and I took a weekend trip to Savannah, GA, I participated in the Charlotte protest march against Cliffside, made from of Teabaggers in Asheville, and Magpie and I drove to Boone so he could interview Starhawk for his upcoming book. Also filmed the notorious "Asheville Police Brutality" video in downtown Asheville.

May 2009: I went to Miami (again!) for my sister's graduation, and I got my first black eye in a May Day mosh pit there. I rode trains and hitchhiked for the first time with Justin and his dog, Cheech. Got my third tattoo. Dropped out of school (again!) Got my first misdemeanor charge for photographing a police officer in downtown Asheville.

June 2009: Took on a 6,000 mile hitchhiking trip from North Carolina to California (and back again). Saw the Pacific Ocean for the first time in my life.

July 2009: I bought a school bus. Went to a Black Moth Super Rainbow show and gave myself a nasty scar and some permanent nerve damage on my finger from a broken glass. Sold my Honda del Sol.August 2009: Cut my hair for Locks of Love. Hitchhiked to Virginia with Jeff for the last visit with my grandmother. Had terrible luck. Got put in the back of a cop car. Rode on my first IM freight train out of Roanoke.

September 2009: Went to the Globe Forest camp-out. Had my 25th birthday in Asheville. Cut my hair again. Had to pay almost $300 for the misdemeanor charge back in May, but avoided probation.

October 2009: Went to Florida (again!!) to see my Grandma for the very last time. Visited Graham and my birds in Sebring. Lost my wallet, camera, and keys on Halloween because I got too drunk. Got it all back later.

November 2009: Didn't do too much this month. Hung out at the HBH with someone I was unofficially seeing and watched other people get stoned.

December 2009: Iceland.

So overall, I did a TON of stuff for the first time. Basically had no work all year. No serious relationships. Lots of friends came and went. I had a few breakdowns. Changed a lot. Got a grip. 2010 is already much better. :-)

All the photo journal part of it is top notch, by the way.

coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.
Researches have also found the Broccoli also contains necessary enzymes such as myrosinase
in it. I want to mention a part of the Prime Law (Twelve Visions Party) which is part of Neothink.
