Here are just a few of my favorite highlights of the past year...

I moved to Portland.
Got an amazing apartment.
Rekindled an old friendship/gained a new roomie.
Heard John Maxwell speak.
Fell in love with my bestfriend.
Made tons of new friends.
Made the decision to do it on my own.
Lost a job.
The most amazing job fell into my lap.
Interned over the summer.
Made the photography contact I was dying for, and now we are even friends.
Finally grew out of the bar scene. For the most part.
Grew up, for the first time I honestly feel more grown up.

I cant wait for 2010. 
Its gonna be even better!

    Your year sounded so awesome!!! and in actuality, your statement about losing a job but gaining an even better one gave me a LOT of hope about my current unemployment ^_^ so thanks for that!

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
