Before I say goodbye to 2010, I want to share some of my favorite and most important posts and pics of the year. Over the past 12 months, this blog has kept me sane. And even though some months were hectic, and I didn’t blog as often, I’m glad I kept up with it. I’ve never been able to keep a written diary. This blog is my diary.
In JANUARY, I decided to make the leap to vegetarianism, and documented it in a post I called Vegetarian February.
It was only supposed to be a month-long challenge, but I’m still a vegetarian today.
In FEBRUARY, I revamped the way I handled Time Management and Motivation.
I celebrated my 23rd birthday in MARCH with great food and friends.
Jeff and I ventured to Washington D.C. in APRIL, and I recapped our visit in two posts.
One focused on places…
…the other on food:
In MAY, I celebrated my blog’s first birthday.
In JUNE, I taught my nephew, Nicholas, about hydration.
JULY was a great blogging month. My internship at the local newspaper turned into a freelance writing gig. I spent two glorious months reviewing vegetarian restaurants in Saratoga Springs.
And went on a spontaneous road trip with Jeff to Rhode Island. It was such a great trip that I needed
to write two
posts about it:
I shared some very personal things about myself in the following posts:
I also replied to my first negative comment ever.
In SEPTEMBER, I began taking classes in what would be my last semester in college. With a hectic schedule, I wrote a post about Why It’s OK to Not Blog Every Day.
I wrote about How My Ankle Injury Taught Me To Love My Body.
And I celebrated my five year anniversary with Jeff.
I also wrote a guest post for Tina’s blog on How To Stay Healthy and Sane while living a totally hectic life.
In OCTOBER, I raised more than $500 with the help of bloggers and blog readers in a blog bake sale for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
I underwent surgery to try to have a lump in my right breast removed. Unfortunately, the doctor messed up.
But, the support I received from the blogging community made it easier to handle.
In NOVEMBER, I vowed to complete all of my school work before my graduation on December 5. I succeeded.
I shared what I was thankful for on Thanksgiving:
In DECEMBER, I graduated from college with a degree in journalism.
I attended a blogger cookie swap…
…went on a winter picnic…
And celebrated a marvelous Christmas at home with my family:
And that’s my year in review!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! <3
