  • Had venison stew for Christmas dinner

  • Ate lots of chocolate

  • Wandered around an empty dorm, got excited when I bumped into another person for the first time in three days.

  • Went to a Gospel Choir concert at the New Years Eve Gala. WooHoo!!

  • Rang in 2010 with fireworks, champagne, singing, and wonderful friends

And here we are! There's a massive amount of photos I've posted on Picasa, but some of them turned out really well, so I hope you have some time to look through them.

Off for walk!
