Jim said I should make a year in review post, so here it is. Some things that happened in 2006:
I did about half of my MA.
I visited the following places: Holland, Grand Rapids, Brighton, Ann Arbor and Lansing MI; Atlanta GA and areas in and around Athens, Columbia and Charleston SC, Sioux Falls SD, San Antonio TX, Los Angeles CA
I started dating Jim. Generally considered a good decision.
I started to be involved in worship planning at my church. A fulfilling and exciting activity.
I had mono, and spent about a month teaching for an hour a day and watching videos.
I learned how to cook a lot of new things (thanks Jim)
Those are a few of the major events, anyway. I also met some great new people, deepened friendships with old ones. 2006 was the first entire year I spent in my own apartment and not living with my parents (I did visit them though). It also featured the most air travel of my entire life thus far. I turned 23, that was cool. I fell in love with Barak Obama, just like everyone else. I got excited that democrats regained the house. I read a lot of NYtimes, and sometimes I commented on this blog.
Some of my friends got engaged and some got married. One of my cousins got married.
All in all, 2006 was a good year. I only hope 2007 is equally good, as I look ahead to new challenges and joys. I’m writing this post from Jim’s apartment in LA, who knows where I will be a year from now. Hopefully working on my PhD somewhere.
I hope all of you, dear readers, also had a good and fulfilling 2006 and I wish you an even better 2007.
