In 2009, I...

decided to take a leave from my college in the Midwest

recovered from clinical depression and an eating disorder

worked in a doctor's office making as much per hour as my college-grad brother-in-law (muahaha)

funded, planned, and took a solo trip to Australia

registered my own domain

got pierced

stood in the Indian Ocean

found a major that I love (anthropoloGY!)

came into my own as a feminist

started taking good pictures

tested the waters of analogue photography, and fell accordingly in love with toy cameras

was a bridesmaid

developed an addiction to snail mail correspondence

saw Arizona for the first time

stood up on a surfboard

thanks for all the inspiration and the friendship, dearest.

Erin - The exact same thanks to you, 'Rin.

Q - YES you can even ask Summermoon!

Kez - It was...thank you!

Bambola - Thank yooouuu my Livid.

Priya - And Happy Twenty-Ten to you, Priya!

Maya - Yes. :) Likewise, you Maya.

minteva - Thank you, Mam. I really don't often think to myself, "I should be proud!" even when I am pleased, so it is good for me to hear it. :)

phampants - Ah yes, that's right, I have seen you in front of the Opera House! Did you leave a bit of your heart there too?

Rebekka-Jennie - I did indeed! I hope yours was full of joy and new things too.

Anna-la - thank you, my love. that means much from you.

gabi - oh Gabi, me too! Me too so much.

geekspawn - Now let's see if the 2010 plot that's hatching on LRRH comes to anything...

Summermoon 1/03/2010 5:10 PM  

I back up the surfboard claim. I was there!

Congratulations on a year well-used. :)

cuileann 1/03/2010 9:31 PM  

Summermoon - The very same back at you, my dear.
