2004 was a pivotal year for me. It was the year I found love. Too much love. I had never thought that possible. I fell in love with 2 people at the same time. Each one made me complete in different ways. It finally came time to chose one, and I did. I hurt someone, but I have kept him as a dear friend. I hope to continue to grow that friendship and mend his heart in the coming year.
2004 was also the year of the furry con. I attended 5. FC, Califur, AC, MFM, and MFF. Each one was a great time. I have met some truly wonderful people and hope to continue to add more. The fandom is full of wonderful people as well as a few jerks, but the good far outweigh the bad. I will be starting the con 2005 season off in just under 2 weeks as I head to FC.
2004 was the year of the fursuit. I added Zunipup to my line-up in January. I had several gigs for Animal Humane. I suited a few times for Wildlife West. I had wonderful "guerrilla fursuiting" events such as Times Square which got me noticed by some folks in Hollywood. Let's see if potential deals will come to pass. I may become the official mascot for Sapporo Beer in 2005. Keep your claws crossed. It was also a blast to fursuit Arches National Park with overzen. The pictures he took of me at Delicate Arch were truly wonderful.
2004 was also the year of the fursuit deal that almost was. I had a dream of putting every fur into a fursuit who had wanted one. The deal crashed and burned in November, but the Phoenix might rise out of the ashes. Maybe my dream will come true this year.
What else is in store for 2005? The biggest thing will be my Kitty moving in with me in May/June. We will then take it from there. Wedding bells? A very real possibility. We will be going to AC together in July including side trips to D.C. and NYC. As mentioned above, there is also a real possibility of a trip to Japan to do some professional fursuiting. I also hope to make it to MFM and MFF again. I plan on staying right where I am with my job. I have no desire to leave ABQ any time soon. I will try to get as much training as I can get to better myself, but I am not looking for any promotions or things of that sort. Hopefully Shrubya will not bankrupt the government. And finally I want friendships to grow. New people are constantly popping up on the radar screen, which is great. I want to welcome new friends as well as hold on to all of the dear ones I already have. Please don't slip through my fingers. You all mean so much to me.
and with that, I hope 2005 is the year of happiness for all of you. I wish you all good times, love, and prosperity!
