In retrospect...

No tagging here, I just thought this was entertaining.  =)

Where did you begin 2008?
At Christen's house in Portland, unsure of when it was exactly midnight because her cable had gone out and we had no antenna so we had no idea when the ball dropped.  We used our cell phones.  I then slept a few hours and hopped on a plane back to Boston.

What was your status by Valentine's Day?
Oh so very single.

Were you in school (anytime this year)?
Why yes, I think I was.

Did you have to go to the hospital?
Yes, for some random pain in my side that they thought was gallstones but turned out to be what I've decided to call the mysterious, unexplained pain that never returned.

Did you have any encounters with the police?
Not really, unless you count the ones in Boston holding up traffic so you can cross the street.

Where did you go on vacation?
I would count Bend, OR for Andi's wedding, it's outside of my usual part.

What did you purchase that cost $500 or more?
A new bed!

Did you know anybody who got married?
Quite a few people, actually.

Did you know anybody who passed away?
Yes...my cousin...

Did you move anywhere?
Yes, from part of Boston to a nearby suburb.

What sporting events did you attend?
Red Sox!

What concerts/shows did you go to?
Jason Mraz.  Three times.  Haha...

Where do you live now?
Near Boston.

Describe your birthday?
Vanessa and I had a "date" (dinner and a movie).

What's the one thing you thought you would never do but did in 2008?
Look up a friend from my high school job at Circuit City on MySpace and contact him.

What has/have been your favorite moment(s)?
Finishing 1L year, starting my first internship, succeeding in said internship, being an LF.

What's something you learned about yourself?
I'm better off without him...

Any new additions to your family?
Not my immediate family

What was your best month?
They all had their ups and downs.

What music will you remember 2008 by?
Um, probably We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things, for the most part.

Who has been your best drinking buddy?
Megan and Amanda

Made new friends?
Yes =)

Favorite Night[s] out?
Any time with Megan and Amanda.

Any regrets?
I don't regret anything.  I learn from it.

What do you want to change in 2009?
Nothing really.

Overall, how would you rate this year?
Good =)

What would you change about 2008?
Nothing.

Other than home, where did you spend most of your time?
School

Have any life changes in 2008?
Moved, need to sue someone, did my first internship...

Change your hairstyle?
Not really.

Get a new job?
New internships, but all related to my current employment status of "student" so not really.

How old did you turn this year?
25

Do you have a New Year's resolution?
Nope, I don't do those.

Did anything embarrassing?
I fell while running for the T.  Then wanted to punch the girl that had to say "you fell" in a snooty voice as I ran by after getting up.  She's lucky I caught that train.

Buy anything new from eBay?
Don't think so.  Craig's List though.

What was/were your favorite purchase[s]?
Bed, iPhone, iPod =)

Get married or divorced?
Nope

Get arrested?
Nope

Be honest - did you watch American Idol?
No, it hurts me.  I did watch "So You Think You Can Dance?" though.

Did you get sick this year?
Just a couple colds.  Aside from the mysterious, unexplained pain that never returned.

Start a new hobby?
Nope

Been snowboarding?
Nope

Are you happy to see 2008 go?
It wasn't that bad!  But I'm happy to be continuing through life.

Drank Starbucks in 2008?
Yes, I had some this morning.

Been naughty or nice?
Nice, generally ;)

What are you wishing for in 2009?
Get through most of the remainder of law school without losing my mind, get a post-graduation job offer so I can graduate in 2010 in peace.

This is awesome! Wish I had done something like this for every year end, would make it a whole lot easier to write those memoirs later ;) Great to learn more about you, sounds like you had a pretty kick ass year all around!

Getting through law school without losing your mind is so much harder than it sounds, huh? hahaa HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Remember, you are half a lawyer! The end is in sight! :)

hello there...this is me doing some catching up. :)

first, i must say that you.are.AWESOME! thanks for everything. i mean it.

second, "I don't regret anything. I learn from it." is now my favorite quote.

and last, that unexplained and mysterious pain? i had that once too. i even had an ultrasound done because my doctor thought he was going to have to remove my gallbladder. it was perfectly healthy even though i had numerous symptoms that said otherwise. he told me that sometimes gallbladders just have little hiccup type stalls in their function and they need to reboot like a computer. i haven't had any problems since then either.
