Johnny Revisits Phoenix - This may be a shocker to some people,
a lot of you know that I talk about this person more than anyone else I
know. Regardless, this event is placed in the right area.
had left Phoenix last September, and he planned to come back to further
pack his belongings on a later date. When he revisited in
of last year, nothing was to spawn from it. The only things that
were to happen, happened to end. Thus closing a chapter on the
featuring our beloved John Cloud.
Eve Party - Though none of my Mountain Pointe friends experienced
Christmas Eve Party I held, this event still finds its place
The party came in the transitional stage, when I started to find new
one being Cassandra Lynn. My other friend, Darren, was in
at the time. This allowed Cassandra and I to become better
and we did so by chatting on the Internet during the party. After
a while, I tried to stay away from the computer because I was ditching
my own guests. The night spawned a strengthened relationship, but
Science Center Field Trip - This excursion, late in the school
was one of the most spontaneous things we ever did. In a matter
days, we set up a date and actually went. We were planning it for
a while, but it only took a few days to actually get it together.
Other than having fun messing around with science things, a few things
happened. Minor things, mind you. The participants of the
gained a strengthened relationship with Mr. Lassen. Also, we
a new friend, Julia. Though she turned out to become a really
friend, it really wasn't this trip that set the friendship up.
is why this trip finds itself low on the list.
Concert - Even though there is little to say about this event, it
higher than the previous incidents because of one factor: after the
my future guitarist would sleep over. Because of that night, we
better friends. The only reason this is not found higher is
the music making only lasted a few weeks, and it did not prosper.
It was cut short, and it brings this event toward the bottom of the
If you are curious, this event took place in December, and I attended
with my friends Adam, Vinay, and Joel (the future guitarist).
Final Concert During Summer - This is another event in which none
my Mountain Pointe friends are involved in, but in short, this was the
finale of the summer. The whole break, my friends and I prepared
to give this small performance on stage in front of a thousand people
something, and when it finally came, it was amazing. So what
did this have? Well, because it was the last of the summer, it
always looked back upon as the great time. And I did learn a lot
from it, that hard work will finally pay off in the end. I guess
this situation is more personal than the other events. Oh yeah,
the performance when the curtains started to close, Vinay and myself
at each other and we had a funny idea. We Bar Mitzvah danced on
and I don't think many people found it amusing.
#1 - This event, which took place inbetween Vinay's birthday and
was a three-day, two-party event that provided an insanely large amount
of fun. When this event swung by, the summer was already half
and really only temporary changes could take place. The only
I can think of from this is that many of my new friends met my old
and at Vinay's party, I met some of his friends. If these
would have lasted for more than a month, this would be higher, but they
did not. So this event will always live in the history books as
greatest weekend of Summer 2000.
and a Half Week Excursions - At the beginning of summer, my
took my brother and I on two trips that spanned two and a half
The key is that I went on the trips during the early life of the
which tended to benefit because I showed devotion to the site by still
keeping it updated. Also, when getting back from the first trip,
I were to move rooms, because my father followed us back. I was
to take control of the master bedroom for a period of time. Other
than that, not much happened to record on this page.
Cousins Visit - Seeming quite insignificant at the time, Darren's
were to visit Phoenix during Easter weekend. I became good
with one of them, because I hung out with him repeatedly. That
does not have anything to do with it though. See, this weekend
and I started playing music with Chelsea, a guitarist. And, if
cousins did not visit, we would have never been invited out to
Though I cannot disclose all the information about the triggers that
event caused (it would ruin some events that I have yet to put up), I
say one thing: the dinner brought Darren, Chelsea, and I as closer
That did not last as long as expected, hence the low spot.
Friends With People From Big Spring, Texas - A family moved to
during last summer, and their daughter was transferring schools for her
Senior year. I was the first person she ever talked to in
and her first friend. If I never met her, the whole end-of-summer
gig would not have turned out the way it did (she was our singer) and
would not have spent all of our time preparing for the act. It
because we found a singer that we played music everyday during summer,
and that was the deciding point of this event. It shaped Summer
as I know it.
"Death" of Adam, Our Lord - The title of this event is an inside
The whole concept of this was later made into a stupid movie that Vinay
and myself made. Anyway, not to get off the subject, let's
this event. During the summer, we were to play a huge concert,
Adam was to be our guitarist. All these random things happened,
he just went away for a long time. We had to find a replacement
a short amount of time, and when we did, we changed our whole style of
playing music from hard rock to punk rock. If Adam never "died,"
I would have never started playing punk music on the drums again (there
is actually another event that helps out with this theory, and it is
higher on the list). And punk music goes a long way.
