11. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
BBQ at the Aspen with soooooooo much help from Miss M and friends, to celebrate my 21st birthday!
12. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Perhaps greater success at work, but honestly I believe that everything happens for a reason and everything happens in its own time. I think that 2009 was pretty much perfect just the way it was.
13. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2009?
Not so great. Miss M and I worked together on a weight loss campaign and we were both very successful, but that did lead to some large gaps in our wardrobes
14. What kept you sane?
Nothing. I don’t think i’ve ever been ‘sane’ and i prefer it this way
15. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
Hmm…perhaps James Roday. But i would much prefer the wee-b over anyone else.
16. What was your job this year?
Executive director of an Interior Design Studio – 2009 was my 7th year
17. Did you have any encounters with the police in 2009?
Uh..yes actually. When my tire exploded a nice MD police officer stopped to try and help.
18. Have you run into anybody you graduated high school with?
Not on this side of the world.
19. Describe your birthday.
Early morning silly string in my FACE courtesy of my bff (<3), love from the parents, surprise party at the office, dinner with Miss M, the GrillMasterTM and the Wee-b. Perfect Birthday.
Its been an interesting week so far…lots of cold weather, a winter storm advisory for this weekend. Busy busy business at work, strangeness at home and ultimately the realisation that i have lost friends. I have always moved through my life with the understanding that everything happens for a reason. If people come into my life at a certain point, they were meant to be there. Relationships start and end for specific reasons, even if they aren’t all that clear at that time. I look back now over the last 8 years and i can pinpoint certain people and relationships and its easier now (that the heartbreak has passed) to see why we were friends/partners/etc. even if it was only for a short time.
I’m so excited for the snow…even if i’m not excited about the driving aspect of it. I plan to go home this afternoon, park my car and not think about it all weekend Its funny, after growing up in a country where it very rarely gets cold enough to snow I still get giddy about the idea of a ‘white christmas’ here. I know most locals would just shake their heads at me, but to me there’s still something so magical about the snow…..well until it turns into brown mush
