[Hamlet quotes never get old.]
Let’s see, what did I get up to in 2011?
*finished my undergraduate degree in urban planning/french studies
*did a mini-exchange to Amsterdam and Oxford and navigated a solo trip to Paris
*finally made it to both San Francisco and Vancouver
*took on the challenge of living in rural BC to learn the farm life for a summer
* read 32 books, not counting school ones, favourites being Eating Animals (Jonathan Safran Foer), The Picture of Dorian Gray (Oscar Wilde), Divisadero (Michael Ondaatje)
*saw 46 films
*attended 6 concerts
*sang a lot of joni mitchell, laura marling, and austra whilst cooking
*established a consistent yoga practice at home
*learned that I’m not very good at working retail…haha
*made time for doodling
*became even more hermit-like than ever
So, some successes, some failures! Such is life. I hope that the new year will bring new friendships, urban adventures, kitchen experiments, a stronger dedication to yoga (and maybe running…maybe), more travelling, and meaningful work.
