It's almost a new year...

Happy New Year's Eve everyone! I hope you all have fantastic celebrations tonight while you ring in 2009. I am thrilled to be saying goodbye to 2008 and am hopeful for a brighter new year.

My friend Brenda from Phydeaux tagged me to take part in a little walk down memory lane...

10 years ago I was finishing my first semester of college. I was completely up in the air about what I wanted to major in, but I was leaning towards fine art. Most of all, I was thrilled to be finished with high school.

8 years ago I was looking at art schools in San Francisco and New York. I was dying to get out of San Diego.

6 years ago I was living in New York, making my art school dreams come true. I was really home sick and missed my family and sweet boyfriend (who diligently visited me every semester).

2 years ago I was living with my (still) sweet boyfriend and our cute little yellow cockatiel Diego.

5 yummy things

1. Vegetarian Pho
2. Tiramisu
3. Persian Cucumbers
4. Margarita Pizza - basil, tomato, mozzarella cheese. What could be better?
5. Tadiq - there are many amazing things about Persian rice, but my absolute favorite is the browned crunchy cracker-like rice that cooks at the bottom of the pot. If you ever find yourself in a Persian restaurant you should be able to find tadiq on the menu (it will usually be under the appetizers). YUM!

5 places I would like to escape to

1. Italy (never been)
2. Ireland (never been)
3. DC (the BF and I went last year and LOVED it)
4. New York (I haven't been since school)
5. Chicago (never been)

5 things I would never wear

1. The Skort - Just ewww
2. a uniform
3. Flesh colored nylons
4. Real fur
5. Stiletto heals - they look hot, but I would be on the floor

5 fave TV shows

1. Big Love
2. True Blood
3. Entourage
4. The Office
5. Arrested Development

5 things I enjoy doing

1. Cooking
2. Making jewelry
3. Hiking
4. Making art
5. Drinking wine

5 favorite toys

1. My MacBook
2. Holga Cameras
3. Nintendo Wii
4. My car
5. My awesome butane blow torch (for silver smithing)

Feel free to play along and let me know so I can link to your list.
