What do I do in 2015? A lot! I got promoted to pioneer a new department at my job. We adopted our puggy. I spent my 25th birthday in Las Vegas, Nevada where I saw my first burlesque show, Zombie Burlesque. I won the CSE Achievement Award for being in the top 5% of my company. We visited Skyline Drive for our 4 year anniversary (2 year wedding anniversary). I was hired to direct my first play. We finished taking pictures of all the Maryland Historical Society signs. I found out my baby sister was expecting a baby. I successfully had the Gastric bypass surgery. We took our fur baby to where I spent some of my childhood, Fishing Creek Nature Preserve. We bought a pool for our house. We visited Washington, District of Columbia where we saw Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution, Lincoln Memorial, Reflecting Pool, Washington Monument, Smithsonian Institution Building, The Library of Congress, and US National Archives. I watched my best friend since kindergarten get married and found out she's expecting a baby. We picked pumpkins at Brad's Produce and went to the Applebutter Festival. I finally got under 300 pounds. I started my Bachelor's degree at UMUC in Investigative Forensics and got a 4.0 my first semester. I won tickets to and visited Elmwood Park Zoo. I crossed my legs for the first time! I lost 75 pounds. We visited Baldwin's Book Barn and purchased a beautiful copy of Anton Chekhov's works. We took our fur baby to LIGHTS ON THE BAY in Annapolis, Maryland and had a Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt with my family. Last year was so eventful and this year will be even better.

Major fail, MVPC. Nowhere does it say the monument entry was by reservation only. For those who patiently stood in line and were turned away, boo to you. What would you have done if the weather had been perfect and the large crowds had attended? Many left unhappy, grumbling. You didn't make many friends today.
