The Year That Was - 2008







I usually dislike New Year's. Is it even a real holiday? I feel like listening to sad George Strait songs with the word fool in the lyrics. But really, I'm not sorry to say goodbye to 2008. I decided that what's been holding me back my entire life are the New Year's foods I've been eating for good luck. For 2009, I vow not to eat black-eyed peas, cabbage, or pork on Jan. 1 and we'll see where that gets me.

I'll do my year in cities again. All the cities where I stayed at least one night in 2008:

Taipei, Taiwan
Hong Kong
Alamosa, CO
San Antonio, TX
New York, NY
Dallas, TX
and (drum roll) Lubbock, TX

You?

At least you're self-aware, Wendy. For Scott, the highlight of his year was probably Plano. Gag.

Katie, stop cheating to make your list more interesting! You didn't stay the night at all those places in Taiwan.

Katie said...

Actually, I did. Remember that I didn't return home until the ninth of last year. I lived in Taoyuan for those days, and then had a sister exchange (Zhongli), then spent the night at the mission home (Taipei), and the hotel we stayed at in Taiwan was actually in Shilin, not in Taipei.
