I can't believe it has already been a year.

It was a year ago on December 19th, 2005 that I made the first post on this blog. It didn't have any information, just an announcement of what I intended to do. I don't think I actually sent a message to Jelynn at her Myspace until a few days later.

I started this blog during my winter break after a round of final exams drained all my energy. This year was even worse, leaving me practically brain-dead for about 4 days. But what doesn't kill me.....

Anyway, it's been fun putting this blog together the past year. I have put a lot of work into it and now it looks almost nothing like the default blogger template I chose. At times it has been frustrating (the top menu) and time consuming (photoshop), but it's still enjoyable because it gives me a goal to achieve and an excuse to listen to music. I think all the hard work has paid off though. I don't want to say the site used to look bad in the early days.....but it does look a lot better after a year. A few things still bother me, but I'm a perfectionist, so there will always be one or two things that do.

Coincedently enough, I think this is the 50th post I have made. That's quite a lot of things to talk about, Jelynn sure has been busy this year. And now that it has been a year, I thought I would share some of the favorite things I have posted about. They are:

(01/09/06) Jelynn's Personal Ticked Out Suzuki Forenza

(01/12/06) Jelynn with GTtv at E3 2005

(02/19/06) Jelynn Guest-Hosting on The Rub

(04/16/06) Yoplait Yogurt Promo

(05/05/06) Guest-Star Role on Nickeleodeon Show: Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide

(05/20/06) Flashback of Jelynn's history on The Drop

(08/31/06) Happy Birthday Jelynn!

(09/08/06) Seven New Bar Starz Trailers

(09/17/06) Check Out Jelynn on the Rey's Anatomy DVD (wish I could afford to buy it)

(11/21/06) BTS Slideshows of the Filming of Grizzly Park

And what would an anniversary be, especially around this time of year, without gifts? Well, I can't do much, but what I can do is crop and resize a bunch of pictures to use as AIM buddy icons. Here they are:

buddy_icon_15 buddy_icon_14 buddy_icon_13 buddy_icon_12 buddy_icon_11 buddy_icon_10

Well, it's been a good year. I hope to be doing this in another year. I wish you all a great holiday season. I'll be back when it is over... if I survive.

Dear Marcus,
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Wow! First of all, I can't believe it has been a year...Second, this site looks so beautiful! I cannot believe how much work you have put into making an awesome fan site for me. I want you to know that I really appreciate your support and loyalty to me and my work. So many people stay up to date with what I'm doing through this site and it amazes that you're able to find all this info. For example, that image you have up of jose antonio and I in the xbox 360 commercial..I've never even seen it! I should ask SiTV to give me a clip of that footage!?! Anyways, I wanted to say thank you so much. Also, I want to wish you and your loved ones a very beautiful holiday and amazing 2007!

Live your wildest dreams...


Jelynn

Thank you Jelynn for your kind words. I'm glad you like it. It's fun learning how to do all this and make it look as nice as possible.

I only ever saw that Xbox commercial once. I was watching Sitv and my Tivo happened to be on when it came on. I didn't realize that was you and jose antonio until like halfway through before I hit record. I've been thinking about putting it up on youtube or something, but after the yoplait yogurt attempt, I've got to find a better way to do it.

Merry Christmas to you Jelynn and all your loved ones!
