so much to say

Okay, Twenty-Ten (that sounds much better than saying two thousand ten). A new decade. A couple of days before New Years I reminisced with a friend about the year 2000 and how quickly things have gone since then. I graduated from high school that year. I also went overseas for the first time and went away to college (quite far from home, as opposed to most people at my high school) where I didn't know anyone. Apologies for the cheesy cliche, but I truly felt like I had my whole life ahead of me and anything could happen. While 10 years has flown faster than I ever could have imagined, I fortunately feel the same way about the next 10 years. The transition from college to the adult world isn't easy, but I've learned so much along the way and I'm so blessed with a great family, friends, and a job that I love and can grow with as a career. Not a lot of people can say that in their 20s and I'm so grateful. I'm also grateful for new hobbies and interests I've found along the way, such as photography and decorating.

So the sad news is that my hard drive died over Christmas. My laptop was new in May, so this was a bit frustrating. I transferred everything onto it when I got it and backed up on an external hard drive, so I didn't lose totally everything. My music and most of my Word documents are fine. What I did lose is all my pictures from the summer. That was sad. I have some in an album in facebook and some on flickr, but there are hundreds more, just mundane things but special to me, that are lost. While there's no one to blame but me, I didn't anticipate a 7 month old hard drive dying out, so it was a bit upsetting. Now I need to get things from my external hard drive onto this new one and start organizing things again....

Here's to bigger and better blogging in 2010! I'm going to be starting an A-Z list of different things that inspire me...hopefully up in the next few days. I'm also going to try and be more consistent with my photography, something that fell by the wayside this fall. Cheers and Happy New Year!
