2014_Year_In_Review

With 2014 coming to an end, I already find myself reminiscing over the last year. The emotion highs and lows. Success and failure. What could have been and what’s to come. So much to think about. I’m going to think hard over the next few days as I’m actually on vacation (yay) and want to come up with some relevant data to present to the peeps in the street. Here’s what I’m thinking so far for my year in review!

  • Favorite Event
  • Travel Destination of the Year
  • Best Sneaker Pick-Up
  • Best Gaming Pick-Up
  • 2014 Game of the Year

  • 2014 Anime of the Year
  • 2014 Movie of the Year
  • New Experience of the Year
  • Girl of the Year
  • Homie of the Year
  • Nostalgia Trip of the Year

I will thoroughly report on the above and have something to you sometime after New Year’s. Until then. Thank you so much for 2014. ❤

SLAM_DUNK_AJ6_001If you’ve been following sneaker news, you might have heard that a few months ago Jordan Brand was putting together something special for Slam Dunk fans! Takehiko Inoue’s classic ’90s basketball manga/anime was a cultural phenomenon for Japan. Much like what Eyeshield 21 did for American Football in Japan, Slam Dunk did the same for professional basketball.
