i once saw where a guy was working to recollect one moment from each year of his life to see if anything could be discovered by the exercise. not having many original ideas myself i figured i would try it myself. and as per usual i figured what's the point of doing it if i don't share it to the world. so feel free to step into various points in my life, for what it's worth.

1987
late in 1986 my mother moved from fort collins, colorado to saint louis, missouri in the name of a career change (as noted above). my father soon followed her, albeit to branson, missouri, to professionally play bluegrass music, an even more severe career adjustment. i was in the midst of my senior year in high school in a school district i'd spent twelve years attending. my folks were savvy and cool and stellar enough to let me stay to finish things out. this meant i lived alone in my parents four bedroom home for much of my senior year. a telling thing about me; i never had a party.

the closest i ever came to a social gala would be a small wednesday gathering i organized and dubbed 'bad movie night'. bad movie night consisted of me picking the most ridiculous-looking horror film i could find on the shelves of my local video house. then a few of my best friends would come over and we'd drink mr. pibb and messily eat microwave popcorn. i should confess that said 'best friends' only actually showed up about every other week. and that these best friends were rarely the same people. i guess we could call this another telling thing about me.

fortunately for me, i believe one of the most unfortunate events that can happen to an individual is that they peak too early. i in fact felt so strongly about this missive that from a young age i worked diligently to see that it didn't happen to me. and from the above few sentences i'd say i exceeded even my expectations.
