Today is not just the last day of the year, but it’s also the last day of the decade (remember Y2K?).
This year started off great. I got to travel to Argentina after 15 years and got to introduce Russ to my family and my roots. Reconnecting with family and seeing Buenos Aires as an adult and on my own for the first time was truly the highlight of my year! I got to attend my very first Northern Voice and BarCamp as well as help Raul with the very first ever Mental Health Camp this year. I began to explore photography more by purchasing a Canon Rebel T1i and attending more photowalks. I continued with my Olympic Volunteering dreams by auditioning for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies (alas they didn’t think my hip-hop dancing was good enough for the ceremonies). I got to participate in more media events thanks to my blog including, Chill on the Hill, meet some of the Paralympics athletes and some of the Canadian snowboarder team. I got to attend more theatre events this year including Les Miserable and The Evil Dead – The Musical. I became one of the Vancouver Opera’s live bloggers for their 50th anniversary year which allowed me to attend Norma and meet the cast backstage.
This year is not without heartache either, but overall this year wasn’t too bad.
I am looking forward to 2010, with the Olympics just around the corner and I’m hoping to grow more professionally as well as grow my photography through more photowalks and maybe invest in more equipment.
Hopefully you will be spending your last day with friends and family. So here’s to you 2009! Thanks for stopping by!
