2009 in Review

Jan 15, 2010 Leave a Comment

My friend Chloe from My New Life as a Housewife did this recently and I wanted to do it too! (With my own modifications, because I can't follow directions... )

Best times of 2009: Para-archaeology training in Arizona (3/09); Basic Soil Survey in Lincoln, NE (5/09); VCNP with all of the NM and AZ crews (6/09); My first field review (10/09)

Worst times of 2009:  Finding out Matt's secret; Getting hailed on and heat exhaustion in the same week; Mid-year performance evaluation (7/09).  July was a bad month.

Good news: Got a promotion (12/09); started school again (8/09)

Bad news: I gained 20lbs.; It's going to be years before Matt and I have a normal schedule and life together

Coolest thing(s) in 2009: Tool Concert (8/09); My thesis work getting published (9/09)

2009 was my first full year in the "real world."  My first full year living completely on my own.  My first full year with a boyfriend.  Looking back on everything, it wasn't perfect, but it was good.

    I liked your review!

    It's good to always make note of the good things.. and not just the bad. Why do we do that often? I'm not sure.. but we do.
