Do you remember any notable events from the year 2011? Pop culture websites tell me it was the year the band R.E.M. disbanded after thirty-one years, comedian Russell Brand and singer Katy Perry filed for divorce, and actor Charlie Sheen was fired from the hit television show Two and a Half Men.
I don’t recall significant personal life events attributed to 2011, but records show me in July of that year I bought a Dell XPS 17″ laptop to replace a two-year old Dell netbook that was a tad too small for everyday use. I still use this laptop six and a half years later.
