2008 - The things I know for sure.
(I think.)

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

Here is just a little snippet of the many things I've learned in this crazy, exhausting, joyous year:

- Second only to love, travel is the best part of life.

- Dorothy said it, "There's no place like home." I think she may have meant to add, "There's really no place like a warm beach."

- Graduate school is hard to start. It’s much harder to finish.

A bungalow-style apartment on the lake is lovely, even when it’s not.

- Being Auntie is one of the best jobs in the world.

Big wavy hair and a little lip gloss can go a long way to brighten your own day.

- Gossip Girl is an antidepressant.

Your friends are your life rafts.

- Turning 30 is far better than you can imagine.

If Britney Spears can put down the Cheetos and pull it up a notch, maybe I can too.

- A person can never be too poor to be generous.

- We all have issues - some big, some small, some of them deeply painful. The trick is not to let them define you.

We deserve to be talked to by our leaders with at least the assumption of intelligence.

- Volunteer work changes the constellations of your heart.

Love is scary and imperfect and may even make a fool out of you, but is worth the risk. What better reason to be made a fool of?

- Life gets harder with age, but it gets better.

It turns out, we do have the audacity to hope.

- Perennial single girls can fall in love.

Even in the gloomiest of times, joy is waiting for you around the corner. You just have to wait it out and find it.
