Fifty Things of 2010

So every year, I write a list of fifty things — highlights, fun things, milestones — that I’ve done the past two year. When I say “every year”, I mean the past two years, and you can see them here and here, on the blog I kept before I lost interest (ramblings of a highschool girl, haha. Quite a lot of stuff about NaNoWriMo, though, and Haiku Every Day in June).

I’ve actually had a really excellent year this year. That’s not to say that there hasn’t been things that might have gone better, or ended less than ideal, but whether because of the company I keep, or the relativity of whatever, it’s been a Good Year.

So without further ado,  here we go:

1. First relationship 🙂 Pat, you are probably ARE DEFINATELY the reason I’ve had such a good year 🙂 Thankyou 🙂
