2005 has been a year of ups and downs, with many good memories, and just as many bad memories. I celebrated my first year of marriage, I went back to college full time, my brother graduated from college and so did my sister. I also fucked my student loans up, so by the time I get my sophomore loans I will be a junior. Makes for tight budgeting, but it also makes it so I don’t have to pay back as much. I guess I could borrow more, but I don’t want to have to pay it back later, so I will just borrow the smallest amount needed to pay for my classes and books.
This year also saw the tragic wreck of Arnie while racing, but thankfully he survived and is doing great. He truly is a survivor. From being airlifted by helicopter on July 2, to walking out of the hospital eighteen days later, he showed that nothing is too much to walk away from. He probably won’t race this next season, but I am sure he will be back for 2007. Better watch your ass, Mr. Lewis, next year you won’t win the championship simply because you ride for the sponsor of the track.
Summer also held a surprise storm, that did much to show that the current administration does not fucking care about its citizens. Not that I care that much either, but it opened up many eyes.
Technology crept forward, and gas prices skyrocketed. Now its cool to own a gas sipper, not a H2 with giant rims lifted 6 feet in the air. Some people still drive them, but soon they will be crushed by the looming gas price spike
My prediction for gas costs in 2006: It will hit $8 a gallon after storms in the Gulf, and settle around $3.75 finally.
