Looking around Facebook, Twitter and all other means of social media these past few days I've seen a lot of mixed feelings towards 2010. While some thought it was the best year ever others desperately prayed that 2011 would be better. Looking back now, while I wouldn't say 2010 was the best year ever I would say it was pretty epic, and I've been able to document the entire journey. January 1, 2010 was not only the beginning of a new year for me, it was the beginning of a project, project 365 to be exact. While I knew taking a picture a day for a year was going to be tough, I was excited to try it. With the project over now, I have to admit that once I moved back to America I became far less diligent at taking pictures, sometimes only taking one or two a week yet I'm still amazed at the picture of my year it paints.
So here's looking at back 2010 with a selection of pictures from my project 365 folder
Early in the Morning on January 1 I packed up my bags and boarded a plane back to Bangkok via Tokyo
And I was the teacher to some pretty rad second graders who liked to goof around with me
I applied for the awesome STA World Traveled Internship, was chosen as a finalist, but that's where the road ended.
Paid one last visit to my favorite Thai island, Ko Samet, and got a pretty wicked sunburn as well
Ate plenty of Chicken Chile Paste from Sombats (and now I miss it so much!)
And said goodbye to my AMAZING second graders.
Then I moved back to America and have gotten to spend a lot of time with this little cutie.
Had a great summer at home where I...
Got to be a Junior High camp counselor
And finally made it to Victoria, B.C.
I got a new job.
Became at youth leader at my church.
So here we go, 2011, I triple dog dare you to be more awesome and more exciting than 2010. You think you can do it?
