Me and Olivia bringing in 2009!

This year hasnt been too horrible, but I cant lie when I say I'm soooo stinkin excited for 2009! Being 23 is awfully fun, and after 10 more months of this, I get to be 24 for awhile before 2010 too! so fun! I feel like the 19-22 time was just weird...lots of up moments and down moments and not a lot of in between, now i feel like i have lots of up moments and in between moments in my life...and hardly any crap moments. It's just a nice age where it feels like you know and like yourself so much more. what a concept?! and in 2009 i get to to go Paris, Cancun, New York, Oregon, spend a summer doing ???, finish my BA, and get awfully close to graduating with my credential too (spring 2010 bitches!).

however, here are all the important moments that happened in 2008:
1) Visited Olivia and Micheal in Oregon, so wonderful to see her sweet life there.
2) put my disneyland pass to good use with Miss Kelsey, Mom, and even little Alyssa
3) moved out for a month with dear Tamara
4) went camping with the girls in a tiny campsite for like 0.5 nights at San Onofre
