One year down, many more to follow

It was one year ago today that I started my blogging escapade. In that year I was able to get a modest 2000+ views, with a daily average of about 15.

So much has changed, and that whole year is all but a blur to me. The initial concept of this blog was to be nothing more than a speedy way for me to tell others what I have been up to, and the destructive nature of the relationship that I was in. But as the blog progressed, I started to find my own voice. I rekindled my childhood passions of bicycles, photography, and cars.

I went from weighing 308lbs in June 2007 to 207lbs in November 2008, and now I am averaging around 190lbs; from a size 42 waist to a 34, from XL to Medium shirts.


Due to the weight loss I had some of my clothes tailored, and taught myself how to tailor pants.

I met three people on my “people to meet before I die” list: Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding of The Mighty Boosh, and Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist. And since I met Jemina Pearl in 2007ish, all that is left to meet is Iggy Pop.

2009 was truly a year full of sadness, destruction, joy, happiness, love, exploration, discoveries, hatred, disgust, and passion. Who knows what 2010 will bring; all I can hope for is a bit more fun.

-till next time
