...I am a bad blogger. There's a chance you already knew that. I'm aware that my blogging habits are lame and sporadic, but hey...I do my best.

I finally got my grad school applications in! I went through some form of personal hell in the process (including sprinting through local campuses to try and get applications handed over before the deadlines), but it's finally over! Now I can just sit back and wait to see which schools actually decide to let me through their doors.

And with that in mind, I'm off to Mexico for a week! I am SO looking forward to a little sunshine and relaxation. I'll worry about that whole "finding a job" mumbo jumbo after I get back. So, until then...Adios amigos!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Holidays were pretty mellow for me this year, but I have absolutely no complaints about skipping the craziness that usually accompanies Christmas and the New Year. It was so nice to spend some time just relaxing with family and friends! I'm so sad that it's all fact, I'm in complete denial and I haven't stopped listening to Christmas music yet.

Christmas 2008

I spent New Year's Eve in Seattle and had so much fun, even though it was freezing up there! In fact, I almost couldn't make it back to San Diego because my airplane was stuck in the snow. The plane had to be de-iced twice and then tugged away from the gate before we could finally take off amidst a blizzard of snow. Thank goodness for dramamine, because the contents of my stomach were dying to make a reappearance during all of the turbulence.

Here we are sipping cider during the final countdown to 2009!NewYear's2008

I haven't ever been very good at keeping New Year's perhaps my first resolution should be to work on following through with this year's goals! That being said, my New Year's resolutions for 2009 include, but are not limited to:

1. Hopefully get accepted to grad schools and decide where I want to do my master's program.
2. Exercise at least a couple days a week...which will be a huge step up from my current frequency of NEVER.
3. Take better care of myself so that I don't get sick so often.
4. Find a job in the psychology field until school starts in the fall...and avoid being swallowed by the country's "financial crisis" in the meantime.
5. Learn to play the guitar! I bought a guitar years ago but I have never actually committed myself to taking lessons and learning how to play. Hopefully by this time next year I will be posting a video of myself playing a Ramones song to exhibit my sweet new guitar skills.
6. Be happy!

I hope that 2009 brings you an abundance of health, love, and laughter! Happy New Year!
