Year 2009

Ah~ Another year has passed. I was just thinking how I should start sorting out my pictures because I have to write my traditional post. I guess I should have started earlier cause I just realized I have A LOT of pictures.

I was asking myself, "What is there to write? I don't think I did much this year." How wrong I was. I did so much that I don't even know where to start.

I guess I should start by saying, this year, I've..

#1. Had a sleepover at Michelle's.

I am always grateful for this year end post. Pain in the ass as it may be, it actually one of the best ways to have a flashback on what I have done over the year.

To be honest, I really enjoyed my year. Experienced a lot of firsts; met up with old classmates and made new ones; attended my fair share of weddings and birthdays. How can one not be content with life. My only regret is that the year has come to an end.

I remember saying, "..if [Year 2008] could be better than Year 2007, I don't see why Year 2009 could not be better than 2008." I guess I was right. It was better than Year 2008.

I really am sad that this year has come to a close, but I guess I will just have to look forward to Year 2010. All I have to say is, Year 2010, you are going to have a hard time topping Year 2009. Gambatte!

New Year's resolution:
1. Have improvement in my Japanese
2. Get a good internship
3. Try for 5A's again
4. Do well with my violin
Happy New Year people!!!
