Happy New Year 2010!

A new year is here! I can't believe it's 2010, I feel blessed that I've experienced a decade in the 21st century and many more years to come. I think these ten years have gone in a good speed, not fast and not too slow. I've gone from being a child, a teenager to an adult that feels very immature and childish. However, it has been a fun rid, I've experienced a lot, and I have grown inside, even though I need a bit more growing to do.

Traditionally I fired of some Fireworks, they were beautiful, I had bought a big "Cake" that fired 50 shots and a few "Air Bombs". I shot some during the evening, like I always do, and I saved the biggest Firework for midnight. I went up a big hill right after midnight, when all the fireworks were, I could see the whole city from there and all the Fireworks. Other years I'm going to buy more different Fireworks, I like those with lots of power, the "Cake" that I bought set off a car alarm. It was fun today, like every New Years Eve.

Ever since I was 5 years old, I've fired off Fireworks, of course with a parent and my brother. I was afraid of them at first, but that went away when I got older. We bought every year Firecrackers, some were small and some bigger, we also got Fireworks from our neighbor, he had a friend who sold Fireworks. Me and my brother also liked the "crackling green balls" and an other one who bounced, which came between my legs. We always celebrated New Years Eve at Grandma and Grandpa, the neighborhood where they lived always had people who fired a lot of Fireworks, so it was fun being there.

What I remember from these ten years is that I've gotten many more things that make me happy. First of all, and one of the biggest, is that I became a Linkin Park fan. I was twelve years old and the year was 2000. I had heard a song on the TV from a band called Linkin Park, but I didn't know who they were and the genre they were playing wasn't the one I used to listen to. One day when I was in the shower I started humming on a song, but I didn't know which one it was. I went up to my computer and searched for it on the Internet, I somehow figured out the title for the song: "One Step Closer" by Linkin Park. I downloaded the song from "Napster" and listen to it, but I thought it was pretty short and thought that only half the song was downloaded. I turned on the TV, for some reason, and to my surprise the music video for "One Step Closer" started, and I saw that the song was the right length.

I think that was the sign that I should be a Linkin Park fan, I later downloaded "Pushing Me Away" and thought that Chester sounded like one of the Backstreet Boys. Every time I was in the record store, I looked at their album and saw the band picture at the back and though that they were a very cool band. I saved my money to buy their album, "Hybrid Theory", and when I finally bought the album and played it at home, and hundreds more after that, I was blessed by their music and a Linkin Park fan for life.

I've also played a lot of video games, both on the PlayStation 2 and the PlayStation 3. I've had many awesome video game experiences with a lot of positive feelings involved. I remember the "Grand Theft Auto" games, "Metal Gear Solid" games, "TimeSplitters" games, "Resistance" games, "Modern Warfare" games, "Killzone 2", "BioShock", "Batman: Arkham Asylum" and many many more video games. And I began to have video games as an interest. I've always loved video games ever since I was a child, but when I grew older it became a passion.

There has been a lot of movies too, both on DVD, Blu-ray, Cinema and downloads. Thanks to the Internet I've watched many more movies than I used to. I remember the "Matrix" movies, "Lord Of The Ring" trilogy, "28 Days Later" + "28 Weeks Later", "Batman Begins" + "The Dark Knight", "Avatar" and many many more movies. Movies also became an interest and a passion to me.

I can write much more, but I have to end it now. It's gonna be fun to see what the next ten years have to offer. Some things I look forward to being: play new video games, watch new movies, listen to new music from Linkin Park, experience new technology, for example, PlayStation 4, being creative in new and same ways and feel even more happiness and get a lot of positive feelings and experiences. Welcome 2010!
