The New Year's Meme 2009 Edition

1. What did you do in 2009 that you’d never done before?

  • Went on a cruise
  • Directed a summer camp!
  • Went Parasailing
  • Went crab fishing
2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

Last year I didn't make a new year's resolution. People never keep them in anyway. This year I decided to make a Vision Board which you can view here.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

There were definitely a quite a few babies born this year, but none that were extremely close to me.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

5. What countries did you visit?

Belize, Mexico, Caymen Islands, Honduras and the US of A.

6. What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?

I think what I want most is for things to be less... up-and-down. I'm not saying that I'm seeking "balance" or something, because I think I've come to the point where I just don't believe such a thing is achievable. I think that we do the best we can, and that "balance" is not really possible if one is doing lots of things - something will have to give. BUT. I do think that not being over the moon and then dramatically in the depths of despair would be positive.

March 7th: the day I got my tattoo
