Looking back on 2008:
*I went to NY with my hubby & best friend. It was the first time for both of them. We saw In the Heights & Rent (!). The highlight of the trip was going to the East Village to the Life Cafe.
*This was the first year that I kept a log of the books I've read. I read about 50 books this year and hope to read even more in 2009.
*My colorguard won 1st place at every contest except state.
*I went to Texas for the first time ever. (It was actually the first time I had been west of St Louis.)
*I met some of my favorite authors in person
*I signed on to participate in a picture-a-day project (it can be found here)
*We sold our other house and finally closed that chapter of our lives
*We bought bikes....but have not ridden them nearly enough
*I took, and passed with flying colors, the middle school math praxis. Now, with one class next summer, I will be able to teach 9th grade algebra when given the opportunity
*I watched the Twilght movie in two different states and for a total of four times in theaters (obsessed much?)
*I learned how to make screens and screen print tshirts
*I Reconnected with long lost friends
*I auditioned for a role in a play at a local college and got a part! We start rehearsals in about two weeks. More info will come later on that.
I am sure there are things I have left out, but it's late and I am tired. I am pretty happy with my life in general. I have an awesome hubby, great friends both online and off, I LIKE my job and the kids that I teach and see every day, etc etc etc
I hope you all have a Happy New Year. Make it a good one :)
