i woke up this morning and actually forgot it was new years eve. almost no one is at work. i can’t believe i’m even at work on new years eve.

i have no idea where this year went. it flew by in the blink of an eye, and so many big things happened, and i just don’t know where it went.

in 2009 i…

  • went to las vegas. twice. first CES, first defcon.
  • did it big for spring break in panama city.
  • went to oklahoma city and presented my research.
  • ended a 3 and a half year relationship.
  • graduated from appalachian state.
  • moved to south carolina.
  • purchased my first washer, dryer, TV, and bedroom set.
  • learned how to pay bills. all of them. they suck.
  • fell in love with my best friend.
  • started my career.

and i think the most beneficial thing to come from it all was that i found myself. i realized what i can do being on my own. i learned more in the past year than in any other year of my life. bottom line, i am happy.

2010 will be even better, and i’m starting it off the right way with my first trip of the year next week… to las vegas. :wink:
