Well, that's it. I've survived another year. I ended up living in 6 different cities and sleeping in 22 different beds, couches and futons.
I had weeks where I dined in fabulous restaurants across the country on my dad's tab. I had weeks where I'd eat sushi for lunch and dinner. I also had weeks when I resorted to grits 3 times a day and a power bar for vitamins. I danced the night away on the beach in Virginia and at house parties in Boston. I watched the Sunrise in Miami and set in Santa Monica. I had a live-in boyfriend and I had my Aspen flings. I just braved 20 degree weather and a 20 minute walk to a New Year's party, though I preferred cruising along the Pacific Coast highway in Malibu last January.
This year was full of stark contrasts. My life was taken out, flipped over, shaken around, and stirred. And while it's clear that the scenery changed frequently and dramatically, it'll take some sorting out to figure out how I've changed.
Here's to settling down and figuring it out in 2009.
