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.
