2009: In The Beginning
Where were you in January?
Here at home, mostly. It's strange how cyclical it is. I mean, it makes sense I'd always be home for the holidays, but it just seems to.. fit, somehow that this is where I return to compress and restart a new year. Anyway, in late January, I left for Athens, Greece.
Who were you living with?:
My family-- my mom, dad (sometimes, he had just taken the job in Maryland), Cynthia, Emi, Scamp, Ebony. And then in Greece, I lived with Melissa, Amalia, and Marisa.
Did you kiss anyone on new years?
Yes. :) teh b0yfrend.
Did you make any resolutions?:
No, I don't think I did.. but I'm not sure..
2009: All about YOU
Did you change at all this year?
Did you dye your hair in 2009?
Yes, haha. I'm still waiting for that to completely come out..
Did you get your hair cut?
Did you change your style?
Not really. It's pretty much the same.

Did you get good grades?
Yes, it's been my best few semesters so far.
