2009 is almost over! Here’s a recap of my year!
Early in 2009, I was a senior at UC Berkeley. I was taking a few classes and writing an honors thesis on housing policy in Guatemala.
Title of thesis… Shacking Up: Latent Government Bias in Guatemalan Housing Policy (I thought it was kind of cute/pun-y…)
There was a little spring breaking… Vegas was involved, as was my sister’s dental school banquet.
May 2009: I graduated from Berkeley and my sister graduated from Dental School. We had a joint party.
June 2009: India
July 2009: Home for a month before moving.
Garlic Festival in Gilroy
Wine Tasting in Temecula, CA
Aruba with Momma and Poppa!
Then I moved to Ithaca to go to Grad School at Cornell where I made a ton of new friends!
Went to the NY State Fair saw lots of tractors and MC Hammer
Fostered a dog! Marie the 9 year old (camera shy) German Shepard-Corgie mix with anxiety and a weight problem who I absolutely ADORE but now has a permanent home!
NYC with the Lovely Fella for 3 Yr Anniversary
Went to my first corn maize!
I was Rosie the Riveter for Halloween
Started this blog! Woo Foodologie!
Went to the UN in NYC
There ARE field trips in Grad School!!
I spent Thanksgiving with the Lovely fella and his family. Then he came to Ithaca for a week!!
We went to Moosewood!
I started the December recipe challenge and made a ton of recipes! (click the tag on the side to see them all!)
I got to do the Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24 and made a 12 course vegetarian meal inspired by the 12 Day of Christmas!
Then came Christmas!
The lovely fella couldn’t be there because he had to work at 6:00am on Christmas Day in the Bay Area but it was still a great time! My two friends, David and Talia, came to help celebrate and experience their first Christmas!
Somehow I just seem to attract tall people... tall boyfriend, tall roommate, tall friends...
2009 has been a great year! I hope 2010 is even better with more friends and family around!
What’s the most exciting part of 2009 been for you?
