had my birthday dinner at Husk in Nashville....it was great, that's all, it's not super fancy, but it is super good

Wish I would've known that when I was there a month ago. We ate at Burger Up and I wasn't too impressed. Honestly, I was more impressed by Cookout haha.

I wish I had the time and money to do that

 

 

 

I think the only things that stand out to me for 2016: I saw some cool bands live, discovered a bunch of great music, and I lost my virginity.

Turned 30 and my girlfriend had all my good friends surprise me at a chalet on a river. (best birthday ever)

and we bought a dog in 2016, get him in a few weeks. Pretty huge.

As far as the quality of 2016, it was one of the best years yet when it comes to health and happiness. What a great year in that respect. Hoping for an even better 2017

Highlights include Dillinger Escape Plan and the Mountain Goats (two of my favorites) 

 

And I'm pretty sure that'd be cp :P

Was going back and forth on posting here because the year was so all over the place for me, but I guess I will hop in on that one. This fucker flew out to Phoenix to hang out and we saw Dillinger and Appleseed Cast. He missed it because his plane wasn't in yet but I also caught American Nightmare and Judge the Saturday (day) before he was in. Overall I think I had a productive year. I had some shit that I wanted to work on/change, and while it isn't 100% there I definitely made some positive change. I had a miserable past couple years and decided that I was going to fix it instead of just dealing with it, and I plan to carry that into this year. I'll stop there so it doesn't end up rambley/overshared, but I know I have talked about it with a couple people here so at least someone knows what the hell I mean.
