2010 Year In Review for Jason Douglas
As 2010 comes to a close, here comes the time of the year where people choose to reflect on the positives, negatives, and moments that has a short or long-term impact on their lives. Let me act as if I am the first one to do this.
- I saw a Minnesota Vikings playoff win in January over the Dallas Cowboys. Remember when those teams were Super Bowl contenders?
- I traveled to New York for the first time.
- I attended the stadium opener at Target Field, which was a dream come true.
- I saw Conan O’Brien on his comedy tour in May at the Orpheum, my first time there.
- I fell in love.
- I ran in and completed Grandma’s Marathon; my first, and definitely not my last.
- I had another birthday, my 28th to be exact.
- I helped a friend get a job.
- I was quoted in the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press multiple times.
- I was interviewed by MPR twice (made it in one of two articles).
- I was interviewed by WCCO, and was the inspiration for a Good Question as well.
- I continued to grow as a professional.
- I continued to grow as a person.
- I met new friends.
- I got rid of bad friends.
- I ate lots of free pizza at Green Mill. Yum!
- I had my first relationship anniversary.
- I watched the Minnesota Vikings blow the perfect chance to go to the Super Bowl. I lost five years off my life that day.
- Twins Opening Day.
- Car transmission repairs.
- Inconsistent workout patterns.
- Was stabbed in the back (figuratively) multiple times.
- Still at home.
I could expand on each of those positives and negatives. However, I know you don’t want to read The Memoir of Jason Douglas, 2010 Edition. I don’t blame you. Just know that based on every event, experience, interaction and situation above, I learned plenty which will help me become a better man in 2011.
Overall, 2010 was a very great year; one of the best on record. There were some moments and events that tarnish the year to a degree, which is very unfortunate. There’s plenty I’m not posting about, as I want to protect those involved. I am proud of what happened in 2010, and hope that a great foundation was built for the future; most notably 2011.
I’ll explain more about my 2011 Goals/Resolutions in my next post.
