Over the course of the first quarter of 2004, I went to Arisia, visited Maine, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Niagara Falls, Ann Arbor, Tulsa, and Houston. Along the way, I also managed to drive razil's and blivious's car off Petersburg Pass in a big snowstorm.
In the second quarter, I angsted about where to live and what to do when I grow up, and I made a last-minute decision to spend another month in Guatemala. Then I found a fabulous place to live and moved in. Yay!
I spent much of the third quarter doing very little. I took Aileen home to Wyoming for the first time. I enviously saw my brother off to Argentina for a few months. I considered graduate school in Argentina myself.
In the fourth quarter, I threw myself an unbirthday party, bemoaned the results of the election, and even more, the process. I went to France with a fabulous crew and drowned my sorrows in foie gras, caviar, wine and cheese. I smuggled cheesy contraband back to the US. I had some interviews for jobs, none of which panned out for a variety of reasons, which is a good thing. I decided to apply for the Peace Corps. I went home for a winter vacation after my brother returned from Argentina.
Among a lot of really fabu people I met in 2004 were: snowy_owlet, txbelladonna, eudaimonia, miss_chance, totient and eveandodd
It's been a great year. I can't wait to see what 2005 holds.
