Year in Review....

The year is coming to an end and it is generally a time people look back on the previous year and reflect. These are some things that have happened this year, a la Lisa.

  • I have lived in 4 different locations this year
  • Got a clean bill of health (yay!)
  • Saw an upside down street sweeper
  • Painted my bedroom
  • Bought matching bedroom furniture
  • Changed jobs
  • Changed plans...several times
  • Was Relief Society Secretary
  • Asked a guy on a date
  • Survived a near death experience
  • Was excited about the Presidential Election
  • Became more comfortable in my own skin
  • Made new friends
  • Had 3 different roommates...current roomie rocks!
  • Came to terms with, accepted and embraced my girlishness
  • Saw Les Miserables for the 6th AND 7th time
  • Learned that chivalry really isn't dead after all
  • Became terrified of driving in the snow
  • Moved on...really moved on
  • Had a wonderful Christmas, thanks Lisa!
  • Bought a 5 volume set of Louisa May Alcott books printed in 1901 for $30
  • Really decided to go back to Grad School
  • Laughed
  • Cried

  • Had regular brunch dates with an old friend
  • Said goodbye to good friends
  • Saw Brian Stokes Mitchell in concert with Edward Hermann
  • Finished all 6 episodes of 24

All in all, it's been a pretty good year. 2007 was a difficult year for me, so I'm very grateful that I had this time to regroup, heal (mentally/emotionally and physically) and move on. I feel really good about where I am in my life and the plans I have for the future. It's a really good place to be. I don't think I've ever been there before and it's good. So Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
