New Year’s With Jon & Missy

The following reflection was written in 2003, when I was between 25 and 26 years old.


I spent New Year’s Eve 1996 with JonMartin and Missy, who I’m pretty sure were still dating at the time. I don’t recall what we did besides sit in Jon’s room at his house in Lowell, but I do recall that I was responsible for picking up the Chinese food before I came over and the restaurant Jon had ordered from was in the opposite direction of his house. I’m sure we had a pretty good time but out of all the New Year’s Eves of the 90s, this is the one I have the faintest memories of.

That’s probably not true, I guess. There are probably New Year’s Eves from early on in the 90s that I won’t remember when I get to thinking about them. Oh well.

It was the third year in a row I’d spent New Year’s at JonMartin’s place though. That’s worthy of note. It was also most probably the most pleasant of those three years because the first year I was with Tracy and Jon and I weren’t getting along and the second year the band played a show and I had a massive headache.

Jon and I made some New Year’s resolutions about the band. That’s about the only other thing I remember. We spent a lot of time in his room just talking and hanging out and I don’t think we really did anything.

Hmm… I shall have to try and remember more about this one later.
