December 15: 5 minutes

Prompt: 5 minutes. Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.

As I am waiting for the clock to turn so I can start five minutes, I will say this is so hard for me because I have a terrible memory these days. Okay.

Definitely my trip to NYC. My trips to Great America. My trip to San Antonio for international. All the concerts I went to … Edward Sharpe, Fanfarlo, Jenny and Johnny, James, Lucero, The Tallest Man on Earth, Pitchfork artists, The Avett Brothers, Freelance Whales, Free Energy to just to name a few.

Getting closer with my parents. The beautiful summer we had. CHIRP!! Being on the radio again after years. Creating The First Time reading series.

All my hangouts with Tess, the time we spent at the lakehouse, and just getting close last year. Reconnecting with my friend, Jeff, over LOST and a variety of other things.

I don’t know. My memory is awful. I hope this works for now.
