Things That I Accomplished in 2008

Now that I've written it all down, I don't feel nearly as guilty about those nights spent eating noodles with butter, watching Boston Legal.

Now you! Readygo! I can't wait to hear about it.

Aww, I haven't accomplished nearly as much.

-Traveled alone for the first time by train from Michigan to North Dakota.
-Finally visited Canada.

hokay, 2008 wasn't a year of accomplishments. It was a year of good memories though. Perhaps next year will be better.
