***Throwback Thursday: Junior Year 00/01***

Junior year.... OH BOY!!! Talk about a year of fun times great friends and my first car (a 25th anniversary, 1992 RS Camaro)! The car was a beast and while it was bought rather cheap it of course had issues, the AC didn't work instead it was 2/60 (2 windows down, 60 miles per hour). I didn't care though. And when we'd go anywhere with a hill, like 29 Palms, one of our constant places to get our friends that had recently graduated and were going through school there, we'd have to blare the heater while going up hill so she wouldn't over heat. Then for a long while she didn't have a CD player, so me in my infinite wisdom would pop in some earbuds and use my portable CD player on long drives. Anything over 80mph and she would shake like the earth was falling apart beneath me. She was teal when I first got her, had a disgusting paint job done that made her my black knight. She'd whisk me and friends away to Hollywood, to the beach, to various theme parks, LA, off roading (yes, she handled well for off roading but did get stuck once), the mountains for fun in the snow, out for nights of swing dancing, up to NorCal to visit family and of course to school and work. The summer between Junior and Senior year was an absolute blast! Starting working at Vans Skate Park, out with friends constantly on days off, and attended the Leadership course with JROTC and made my decision on entering the Marine Corps (which no one was too pleased with).

Now for the pics and of course great tunes from 2000/2001!!
