A Year in Review

It really has been over a year since I've written here. On one hand I can hardly believe it's been that long, but on the other it seems like it's been eons. I've really missed writing here. I've often thought about picking it back up. I'll give Lucy the credit for giving me the nudge I needed to come back here. So here's a quick summary of what's happened since last I wrote:

  • I spent much of last spring thinking about buying a house, touring properties, and wringing my mental hands over the particulars.
  • I decided not to buy a house at this time.
  • I wrote my third November Novel.
  • I caught up with a friend from high school who I'd not seen in 5 years.
  • I've been part of the excitement of surrounding the impending nuptials of my one time roommate Steve and my friend Stephanie. In fact I just picked up my bridesmaid dress from the alteration place on Friday. Just about 3 weeks to go!
  • I started internet dating. This deserves a whole post (or several) of its own.
  • I endured a terrible year of work though the bane of existence finally got himself fired, so things have improved.
  • I baked many truffles for xmas.
  • Julia and I have finalized our plans for our trip to Australia in May. Again, this needs a whole post of its own!
  • My middle sister moved in and is now my roommate. Things are going okay. She got me watching the Big Bang Theory.
  • I've become addicted to the Big Bang Theory (see above).
  • I gained back a bit of the weight I lost. :( I'm still down 30 pounds from 2 years ago, so I guess that's not terrible. There's been so much stress in my life in the last year that dieting has really been tough for me. I really wanted to have lost a lot more weight before this wedding and the big Australia trip, but it is what it is.
  • I took myself off to Emerald Isle in the Outer Banks for my Summer Holiday for the second year in a row and had a delightful time. Much of which was spent reading the fifth Song of Ice and Fire book.
  • I made some realizations about myself and did some deep soul searching that resulted in me making some changes in my life. I realize now that writing about it would have been immensely helpful at the time.
  • Lamented the Year Without Winter or Year of the Long Spring; either way you look at it the weather has been total fucknuts lately.
  • Discovered some cool new music.
  • Added to my ever growing coin collection.
  • Made some new friends.
Etc. You get the idea. I'll expound on some of these things in the next few posts. I think I may make my next post a picture post (lazy for me, informative for you). And I promise to try to be more regular in posting.
