About This Time Last Year



C punched me, twice. As much as holidays depress me, I enjoy looking back and remembering the year.

After throwing an unforgettable holiday party with my roommate (there was a champagne room), I went to Paris, where I finished school and received my B. Arch. When I returned I managed to find a job in Houston, of all places. In the past year I've grown closer with old friends and have made new ones as well.

I didn't intend for this to be a year in review sort of thing, but here are some highlights of 2008:
