2009 Year-in-Review

2009 was a year of both fun adventure and craziness, but I survived and enjoyed my travels, triumphs, and tribulations.

Began studying for the GRE for two months. My coffee consumption tripled during this time.

Saw my favorite musical, The Phantom of the Opera, for the third time. That music is timeless!

Took my dreaded GRE Exam and did pretty darn well.
Finalized my grad school applications.
Celebrated by visiting Santa Barbara for a weekend get-away.

Tried SUSHI for the first time, and that did not go very well.

Visited Portland for my cousin's college graduation, which was held at a beautiful winery.
Was accepted into my top choice grad school (much shrieking commenced upon opening the letter of acceptance).

Went to Las Vegas with friends.
Saw Josh Groban in concert at the Hollywood Bowl, which was a dream come true!

Went to San Francisco to celebrate the 4th of July!

Visited one of my best friends (left, below) and went around various cities including Alexandria, Georgetown, and Washington D.C.

Visited NYC and attended the U.S. Open Tennis Tournament, where I salivated while watching Rafael Nadal (one of my favorite tennis players).
Started a new corporate job.

Started grad school, and therefore attended my first-ever football game at my new school. I am now a die-hard Bruin! ;)

Went to San Diego for the wedding of a friend from high school.

Visited Mammoth and stayed with friends in a cabin, and rung in the New Year with some good food and bubbly!
