December 15– 5 Minutes. Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.
This list is not entirely comprehensive, as I only had 5 minutes for a heck of a year. The last item is sort of a catch-all.
Best New Year’s kick off ever (subsequent 4 day hangover/moviefest less fabulous, but still great story). Graduation. Tubing down the Apple River– getting ridiculously sunburnt the first time and battling a thunderstorm and ultra-slow river the second. Golden birthday celebration. Roomies’ birthday celebrations. Break up celebrations. Celebrations. The rush of relief upon hearing “You have finished your Masters of Public Health with no revisions to your final paper.” Selling my artwork. Beautiful weddings. Excited phone calls from some of my most favorite people announcing their engagements. Recently, a Snowmaggedon/Tsnownami/Snowpacolypse. A big kid job and then a bigger kid promotion. Excelling at that job and starting to make a teeny tiny name for myself. Happy.
