I've read a few years in reviews, and it made me think about what a year 2009 has been for me.
I got engaged!
I realized that my sister's are my best friends in the world, and always will be. The relationships I have with them are so precious to me.
Ryan moved away...and the earth didn't come to an end! After a few months, the distance is very tolerable for us and we're doing really well. I thought it would do so much damage to our relationship, but it hasn't at all.
I found my first "grown-up" (post-college) job, as a scriptwriter. The job has opened up a whole new world of opportunities for me as a writer.
I ran 2 half marathons last January....and nothing since. This is on my list of things to improve on, that's for sure.
I cheered my man on as he ran the Boston Marathon! (Ryan mentioned us going back on 2011...little does he know that it is a done deal)
I became much more adventurous about my food, inspired by Anthony Bourdain. I now love mushrooms...who knew?
So who knows what is in the cards for me for 2010...I'm getting married, I'm moving (somewhere, just no idea where yet!)...it's going to be a really crazy year. I'd really like to work on improving some race times (topping my list is improving my 5K PR), maybe run a marathon (huge maybe here). I want to read more and watch TV less, which I'm doing well at so far. I want to be a more optimistic person instead of assuming the worst, and I'd like to learn how to sew clothing for myself. Not resolutions really, just things I'd like to do or be.
So how was 2009 for you? What are you looking forward to the most in 2010?
