I am currently away on the Great Ocean Road Trip. It is awesome, I am sure. However, lots of awesome things happened in 2008, despite it being pretty much universally known as the Year of Suck, and I thought I'd mention just some of them.
In January, I re-named all the childcare centres in Adelaide before starting work at one, and I told a story from my childhood mostly in pictures.
In February, I moved into my new house, and decided to do Honours in 08 and go to BlogHer in July.
In March, we had a ton of events, including the Adelaide Cup.
In April, I found out my boobs were perfect, and realised I was shit at Honours.
In May, I freaked out about BlogHer and then started planning what I wanted to do, made an Australia 101 kit, and witnessed Uni Hall winning Battle of the Bands - again!
In June, I continued planning for BlogHer, and wrote a Letter To My Body.
In July, I flew to San Francisco (via Auckland), and then met a bunch of awesome people at the conference, and then travelled, a lot, while good and bad things happened to my hair.
In August, I discovered Twilight, then arrived home, and lo, it was my birthday. I reflected on my BlogHer trip, continued being crap at uni, and also, the Olympics happened.
In September, I freaked out about my thesis, and distracted myself by sending you mail (which ... did that even get to you?).
In October, I joined the gym, went to the Living End concert, and managed to finish my thesis.
In November, I started planning for our road trip, pondered body image, celebrated the end of the school year, and watched Obama get elected.
In December, I graduated and performed selfishly selfless Christmas deeds.
Wow, this year went quick. And simultaneously it seems like this all happened a long time ago. I hope everyone has an awesome New Years, and an amazingly happy 2009.
What were your highlights of 2008? What are your big plans for 2009?
