7/18/08 - Things I miss...

- My stereo system that was originally in the minivan...yea...the 1986 Dodge Caravan.

- being young enough to not have a job, but old enough to be able to do stuff

- high school basketball, games, practices, travel, all of it...even the running

- the 1996 Chicago Bulls

- sub $1 gas prices

- my 1996 gmc sierra

- spending virtually all my time on hostboard.com

- Goldeneye for N64

- old school cartoons like roadrunner, tom and jerry and the original scooby doo

- Just for the heck of it...Vanilla Ice

- poker, Raw and Nitro, wrestling video games, monopoly, bowling, or whatever we felt like doing that night...not so much what we did...but knowing we could do whatever we wanted

- a flat stomach

- not needing to shave daily

-Saved By the Bell, especially kelly kapowski (thanks Jason, I can't believe I forgot this one)

If I think of more in the future, I'll add them to the list...feel free to add your own in the comments.

I spent countless hours playing Goldeneye.

I was sure you'd list that Memphis Grizzlies T-shirt that blew out of the door on the interstate.

You also seem to have forgotten Saved by the Bell. Not cool.

In all honesty though, it's weird to look back at everything and realize just how much has changed. I turned 27 last month but it feels like just yesterday I was turning 20. I've never been one to think 30 is old or dread getting older, but at the same time I never expected it to happen so fast!

I've gotten to do some things in the last few years that I never expected to be able to do and I've had some awesome times, but I do miss the old days when "the gang" was together and we'd do a whole lot of nothing and have a great time doing it. Goldeneye was awesome. Poker was awesome, too (This ain't Bingo!). The thing I regret most in life is being stupid back then and losing a great friend over it. It still bothers me to this day and If I could just go back and knock some sense into myself, maybe we'd have finally gotten those shirts printed up and kept on playing all this time. That would have been cool.

As far as hostboard...man, I've gotten so much work done since then! I enjoyed it at the time, but dang, I needed to set a time limit on the thing and pretty much do things differently all around.

Things I don't miss: Korn, Limp Bizkit and a whole host of others (Vanilla Ice excluded).

oh definitely the Bulls....best sports team, ever. I also miss sleeping in on Saturday...with children you can't really do that...ever.
