so the pictures are up from the pulled-together-at-the-last-minute new year’s eve classic III at my house. thanks, cannie! and thanks to all those peeps that made this party one of the best parties i’ve thrown in a long time.
so this is the first post of the new year. i’ve been crafting it in my head for about a week, and it’s finally time to put it out here. 2006 was definitely a landmark year for me. i grew as a person more consciously this year, and am able to look back and am happy with the results. here’s a quick recap.
jan – started the year off by spending a week in amsterdam with some close friends (aka the robots). i bought a senseo, which i’ve used almost everyday since i bought it. i also met a co-worker, lily, who would, throughout the year, become an unexpected influence in my life.
jan-feb – spent the first 2 months finishing my senior project, despite having walked in dec. ’05. my diploma says i graduated then, and i’m grateful they let us keep our grad date despite being a little late. getting my bachelor’s degree been a lifelong goal. hooray!
march-april – somewhat uneventful. spent time really getting into my projects at work. now that i had finished school, i was able to better focus on work. i made time to party and enjoy my new-found free time.
may – i finally went to yoga with my co-worker, lily. it had been a goal for a couple of years to get into a yoga class. i had even joined the YMCA in effort to do it, but i didn’t use my membership even once. thanks for helping to show the way, lily! it’s a lot less intimidating if you have someone to show you the ropes.
june – this month is one that will live in infamy in my mind. a series of events during june ’06 led up to a major turning point in my life. the details are not important anymore, nor are the stories (though they are some entertaining stories). after gallivanting all over the country (savannah, las vegas, chicago), i finally realized what “calm the fuck down” really means, and i intend to completely change some perspectives i had.
july-sept – spent the next several months going to yoga 3 times a week, tai chi 2 times a week, and in general getting my mind together. i feel better during this period than i have ever felt (not exaggerating as much as you might think). i also went to boston for the first time ever (for training). it’s an amazing city! josh, a former roommate and good friend, got married at the beginning of sept, and we threw a successful labor day classic II.
oct – i had an awesome birth
dayweek. i got free lunch most of the week, and partied (not too hard) most of the week in the evenings (in between yoga practices lol). and to cap it all off, i went to a strip club for the first time ever. hehe. it was truly a fun time. i also wen to chicago for a week with a co-worker for training. i was truly amazed by all that chi-town had to offer. halloween was also more fun this year than ever (thanks, lily!).
nov-dec – wow. holidays were upon us. spent thanksgiving in st. augustine with charlie’s family (that was an exercise in sneaking out!), and december was filled with all the holiday fun as usual.
overall — throughout the year, i also cultivated my gardening skills by maintaining a variety of potted plants. i look forward to a great growing season throughout 2007!
