2009 in Review

 Events that happened this year:
  • Ran a 15K
  • Found Kirby (handicapped kitty)
  • Said good-bye to my dog, Syd
  • Went on a cruise with great friends
  • Went to London with Chris
  • Moved in with Chris
  • Watched my youngest sister, brother, and niece grow up
  • Made some really good friends
  • Got to see Nick Danger and my best friends Alisha and Bryan (Nick's parents)
  • Learned that I love weight training
  • Watched my kittens become cats
  • Survived chemical thermodynamics and seminar (which means I completed the last final for the rest of my life!)

I have two goals for 2010:
  1. To stick with my resolution:  To be less critical of myself and more confident in myself.  
  2. To see how many of the 52 weeks out of the year I can run at least 3 days in the week.  I am not putting any distance, pace, or time limits on this goal.  I personally prefer to run outdoors, so I imagine most of the runs will be outside; however, I will run indoors if the weather is bad.  If any knee injuries spring up, as they have in the past, I will try using the elliptical (of course I won't do any running if the injury is too bad); otherwise, I prefer not to use the elliptical.
In summary, this has been a great year (aside from putting my dog down, but it was time).  I look forward to what the new year will bring.  I hope to make large strides in my research (which in fact I found something very interesting in the literature today), and to defend my candidacy.  I look forward to meeting new people and hanging out with old friends. I hope you all have a wonderful New Year's Eve and a fabulous 2010!
