The Obligatory Look Back At 2009

Well the year is over.  Since I’m pretty sure I will not be updating tomorrow, I decided to make this one the last of the year.  And I have decided to celebrate the end of the year with an oh-so-popular look back at the past twelve months.
So, here are twelve important events in my life in no particular order…or, well, in no order of importance…I mean of course they’re in chronological order…people are just always say “in no particular order” and I typed it and didn’t want to delete but of course writing this explanation took longer and more effort and finger exertion that pushing and holding the delete button…
Ok sorry…Chronological order…

I rang the New Year in right with the yacht club, some bubbly, and five* pairs of sunglasses…
*four real, one fake

I studied for, took, and passed the CBEST

I celebrated my 23rd birthday the way every birthday should be celebrated…

I experienced the loss of an idol...RIP Bea

I was in my very last play ever at UCI and formed some lasting friendships in the process…


I got to be the Maid of Honor in my best friend's wedding to her high school sweetheart

I met the President of the United States of America…
Ok ok...At Madame Tussaud’s wax museum in Las Vegas

I spent some time saying goodbye to all my friends back home…

I moved 5371 miles away to be an aupair in the Netherlands and starting writing a blog about it…

I spent my first night in Amsterdam and met my fellow aupair friend Lily with whom I will have great adventures…

I celebrated Sinterklaas for the first time.

So there you go.  I guess all I can say's been quite a year.

Word of the day: onthouden - remember


  1. I'm still not sure how I feel about Sinterklaas. But I love you! And I totally freaked out when I saw that picture of you with PapaBama. Then you explained that he was wax and I calmed back down.

    Miss you! Happy New Year!

  2. Happy New Year!

    And thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. LOL I'm kind of loving May's picture.

  4. Happy New Year! Big year for you with graduating college & moving so far from America and all. I'm 29 and this post of one year of your life made me feel like I haven't done much! :)

    Found your blog on 20-something bloggers.

  5. Aw I like this! Happy new year!

  6. i love this and i think i may be stealing the idea from you!

    happy new year, my love :)
