Every year on New Year's Eve, I pause and wonder where I'll be the same time next year. Endless possibilities swim through my head but, usually, I have no goal or direction; no New Year's resolutions, no major goals, no objectives. It is the possibilities and the prospect of undiscovered adventures that excite me. From the outside, it may seem like I have my life planned out but that is probably far from the truth. All I have are vague ideas that slowly coalesce into (more) solid ideas as the year progresses and life happens around me. I guess I am a reactive planner. Is that an oxymoron? January 1, 2015 started with a bike ride to Lake Merritt and a visit to Alameda's German Bar, Speisekammer, where we were treated to Glühwein. It was my first time having mulled wine and, looking back, foreshadowed the first of many new experiences the next 364 days would bring. In January, I went to my first baby shower, had my first alambre chempanos, rode in a Porsche for the first time, and went to Mexico Lindo for the first (and last) time. In February, I watched the Super Bowl at a bar for the first time, took my first cast off, climbed at the Great Western Power Company for the first time, launched my first real website and celebrated at Santana Row, volunteered for Gehl for the first time, and ate my first Kouign-Amann. In March, we found out Scolaris had a second Alameda Base location and ate there for the first time, climbed my first V4, had my first Indonesian chicken & waffles, painted a part of our house for the first time, shared good vibes at Above & Beyond with an extended circle of friends for the first time, took our first family trip to Portland, and went climbing with my brother for the first time. In April, I experienced my first Coachella, had the first outdoor CDC meeting after Red Bull Gate, went back to my first Picnic Day after graduating, and started training my for my first half-marathon. In May, we were first exposed to the greatness that is the Mystery Creature, went to Julie's Garden for the first time, and went to my first professional soccer game. In June, I explored the murals in Mission for the first time, watched the Warriors win their first championship in many years, and went camping in Humbolt for the first time. In July, I played my first game of Egyptian War, went to Dish Dash in Sunnyvale for the first time, had the first blue hour, and partied in the Oakland Hills for the first time. In August, I won and lost my first shuffleboard game at a bar, watched the sun set while sitting in the rain for the first time, said aloha to Liho Liho for the first time, hiked Tennessee Valley for the first time, saw shooting stars in the Perseid Meteor shower for the first time, swam in Costa Brava for the first time in a long time, saw Meru in the Shattuck Theater for the first time, and spontaneously went to my first weekday concert at Shoreline. In September, I made my first international planning friends, went to TBD Fest for the first time, shared my first Blood Supermoon, and went to Little Luca in Burlingame for the first time. In October, I played in my first alumni water polo game, had amazing homemade smoked salmon for the first time, saw the blue angels take off for the first time, had McDonalds with my family as a meal for the first time in over 10 years, went to my first SJSU football game, showed international friends around SF for the first time, went to Haven for the first time, and dressed up and partied during Halloween for the first time after college. In November, I discovered the greatness of Bob Ross for the first time, ran my first half-marathon (2:28) in Monterey, submitted my first grad school app, had my first true LA experience, had our first company Thanksgiving, returned to The Spot for the first time after The Awesome Race, and played Chess with my brother for the first time. In December, I completed my first post-graduate Certificate in Community Design and Development, had my first partner at the Holiday Party, had my first lively political discussion at a family lunch, played my first 9-hole in San Leandro, went to Taiwan for the first time, played arcade games with my brother for the first time since we were kids, heard some of Grandma's old stories for the first time, and hosted a party at my house for the first time. There was no way I could have imagined that I would be celebrating the end of 2015 surrounded by my closest friends in my own house. 2015 was truly a memorable year and I am so, so happy that I chose this year to take on this project. Interstellar taught us that time is relative, and taking the time to appreciate each and every day certainly slowed down time. I found new friends at work, reconnected with old ones, and improved the 2014 version of me. Who knows what 2016 will bring, or where I'll be and who I'll be with on December 31, 2016. Maybe, as they say, it is already written. Onwards.
