2010

The year in review has been rather stressful. Although my best friend graduated law school, and while Patrick has been traveling the US for his residency program, I have been in San Jose trying to sort through my future.

But that isn't to say that 2009 wasn't an eventful year for me. This past summer I ended receiving some of the Recovery Act Stimulus money by getting hired by AmeriCorps. I also moved into my own apartment in Japantown in San Jose. It is quite strange to live by yourself versus having roommates. And it is funny how different living by yourself is as opposed to moving out and living with other people. For the first time I traveled out of the country and went to visit to visit Peru, site seeing and of course be able to to stand in awe at Machu Picchu. I was also able to maintain visiting places I had not been in the US; I flew into Detroit for a day to surprise Patrick's grandmother for her 80th birthday. And for the first time in more than ten years I went back to Canada to witness my younger cousin Richard marry his high school sweetheart in July.

I was the first person outside of my sister and Ray to meet and greet my nephew Zach into the world. And in November, Patrick proposed to me in the morning before we were to head out to go visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

2009 has been an eventful year. There are memories I will take with me to enjoy and cherish. There are also memories I rather forget, such as the Fall 2009 semester.

Who knows what 2010 has in store for me. No wedding plans yet, but definitely a trip to a place I haven't been to yet.

I mean you just got a marriage proposal, you've traveled out of the country and seen some cool stuff. It seems like you have a had an eventful year and a half and always look on the bright side of things.

Each year brings with it new opportunities for happiness and even sadness. It just depends on how we react to it. Remember, everything in inevitable... otherwise why would it happen?
