December 9 – Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans. (Author: Shauna Reid)
Celebrating the last weekend of summer season on Fire Island was pretty damn spectacular. It involved a lots of dancing thanks to a new-found friend’s DJ skills, skinny dipping in a neighbor’s pool with a group of people, and meeting a handsome Italian boy from Brooklyn, with whom I went canoodling on the beach. But, you know, that’s all I really want to share — I stayed sober, I worked through loneliness issues, I made bold moves that were not traditionally comfortable, and I made friendships that will (I hope) last for some time. I hope to be back next year.
