PortmanTuesdays #26

in #portmantuesdays2 years ago




1: a facade you put up to make it seem that you are in tune with the trend.
2: a brave face you put on when you just can't even.

And... that's... a wrap!

For 2018 and this semi-regular series (eek gahd! :O ) Stay tuned for more updates on where this series will go from here. I wanted to put up a separate year-ender post, but I feel like this is a good a place as any to write a short recap.

This may not be as creative as the one I did two years ago or as detailed as the one I put up last year, but I think this perfectly sums up my year in and out of Steemit.

It has been a blast! I got married to the love of my life, my career had as many twists and turns as a mystery novel (or the crypto market a-yo!) and I went through several major challenges in my life.

To say that 2018 was memorable is an understatement. I couldn't remember a year that I wanted to hold on to (or at least not be in a hurry to close out) in recent memory. We don't know what state this platform of ours will be at a year from now, but it's important to remember to make every day memorable, worth something, and, most especially, count.

So, to everyone who had been a part of my 2018, no matter how small, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Words alone can't express how grateful I am to have you in my life (yes, even the negative).

I've intentionally posted this before the end of the year (so techically a Monday here) because I didn't want this to be another scheduled post.

Have a Happy New Year, everyone! Come at me, 2019!


Hurrah for unscheduled crazy posts!!! I agree, it had been a wild one. Who knows what the next year will bring except for good times and beer cheer!!! Happy new year buddy!!

Next year will be even crazier, but one thing's for sure, we will all be crazy together! I hope you had a terrific Hogmanay, my brother from-i'm-still-a-bit-hungover-so-rhyming this-one-well-I won't-even-bother! Wayhay!!

Crazy togetherness!! It shall be so!!

I am rough as old boots!! Here's to it! How you had a great time dudeski!!

Let's just say I saw tons of fireworks ;) Oh, and I saw those things that lit up the night sky and went BOOM, too!

Those are the best things ever!! If there was at least one reason to have a new year it would be them!

The fireworks will remain far longer than the humans that gaze upon them.

For what are fireworks but glimpses into the short and futile bursts of life that we are as to the old ones

And the bang are echoes of the chuckles eons past. A reminder of how fleeting life is.

Happy New Year's Jed!!!! I am OMW to silly drunk courtesy of my bro, and wearing the zeitguise face, haha!! xoxox

I hope Ed had you plastered and that the entire fam had an amazing time ringing in the new year, FTL (For The Lin)!

Ahh nice to see one of my usual faces has a name 😜 glad you’ve had a good year 😄

So no more portmantuesdays or you’re uncertain at this stage?

No spoilers here haha! Not this time at least! There will be a new twist to the PortmanTuesdays concept, so for now let's leave it as it's dead. Long live, PortmanTuesdays! Tune in next Tuesday for the big reveal!!

I hope you had a fun celebration with JJ and the munchkins, how-do-you-light-a-firework?-With-a-MATEch-of-course!

It’s too early in the morning and I have a toothache (whyyyyyyyy 😓) so I’m now thoroughly confused 😅 I’ll be watching out for your posts anyway (my steem schedule is all over the place as one might expect right now but I try).

A matech to light a firework seems like a good way to lose fingers 😳 seems like soon we’ll be getting essay long mate jokes from you 🤣

You know what they say, when you run out of words, the only thing you can do is to cobble up a whole bunch of 'em to cover your deficiencies! Whoever "they" are, I have nary a clue.

Hahahaha wow oh my! I thought the person in the picture/GIF really looked like you, you have got the same beard and my oh my hahahaha, what kind of word is that? I nearly bit my tongue pronouncing that hahsha, your posts have a way of cracking the bejesus out of someone wow hahsha

He does look like me! Ignacio was a childhood hero growing up, so it's an honor to be spoken in the same breath as him. I hope you had a great start to your year, my friend!
